Mandolin Lick of the Week: New Additions

mandolin lick of the week

Good News: We've compiled all the great "Lick of the Week" videos that Mike has been teaching and put them into their own proper section in the Learn area. You'll now see a new tab as its own section and we'll continue to add more as long as Mike makes them. 

This week's Lick of the Week addition has Mike getting you comfortable playing in the key of Bb with the great tune "Good Ol' Mountain Dew". Last week, we added a 2-part lesson where Mike demonstrates and sheds some light on the many mysteries of mandocello and how to effectively figure out simple bass lines across any key for those who would like to include this instrument into their playing. Find it the Lick of the Week section or just click here!
