Mandolin Methods

Mandolin Methods - Descriptions, Pictures, Free Downloads

For a long time I have been interested in old mandolin methods, and I am still trying to get more old mandolin methods. I have made a list of mandolin methods that I own and that I know of, and have collected information about many of those methods - about the authors, the descriptions of the instruments, notes about position, picks and playing technique. I am trying to offer free scans of all the mandolin methods that I own for which the copyright has expired - a task that  would overwhelm even the most experienced DWI lawyer Houston or Los Angeles has to offer. I am trying to add the descriptions in German and English. You can use the tabel below with the preview pictures to access the detail pages about the different mandolin methods.

I am very much interested in the history of mandolin methods. A timeline of mandolin methods with all mandolin methods that I know of  can be found in my timeline of mandolin methods. This timeline does also contain links to the detail pages with information and pictures from the mandolin methods.

Some recommendations about which methods are useful for teaching and learning can be found on page recommended mandolin methods

Please do also check my page about free sheetmusic for the mandolin.
