Ken Eidson, co-author of Complete Jethro Burns Mandolin Book studied with Jethro Burns for two years before being asked to be his musical partner. "For the next five years," Eidson exults, "I was paid to learn from him!" In this book, Ken has accurately transcribed Jethro Burns' unique mandolin style. Carefully selected exercises are sprinkled throughout the book in preparation for specific tunes. No effort is spared in clarifying technical concepts. This is a must-have book for any serious student of the bluegrass mandolin.
