December 10, 2010 | December Mandolin Sessions: Shifting
Ever wonder how the master mandolinist achieves fluidity, moving seamlessly up and down the neck of the instrument? Shifting proficiency is a skill developed over time and we break down the learning process into achievable bite-size chunks in our latest Mel Bay Mandolin Sessions article, "Getting Shifty."
FFcP is a widely lauded approach for fretboard competence, but limited to just one octave, you really need to not only move everything into the higher frets, but learn the transition tricks, moving between positions without losing tone or power. Check out the latest December entry.
