This book presents transcriptions of David Grisman's solos and accompaniment patterns from the CD Shady Grove. The Shady Grove recording contains some wonderful performances of old-time American music by David Grisman and Jerry Garcia, two of American music's greatest players. It is a vibrant collection of wonderful traditional American songs, from a great variety of genres, played in a style closely based on their traditional sources. All of the solos can be played on the standard mandolin, including one written for mandola and one for banjolin (mandolin-banjo). These transcriptions will provide insight into the art of accompaniment mandolin playing as well as soloing. Performance notes by the transcriber are included.
