What People Say About Our Bluegrass Instruction
“I can't tell you how much I am appreciating Roland White's Approach to Bluegrass Mandolin book and CD's. It is well written, answers many of my questions [and] has given me plenty of quality material to work with. I enjoy the layout and find the ‘asides’ wonderful.”
“Your materials are totally worth the 30 bucks. If I had paid double or more I would feel the same way. Thank you for all of the time and effort you have both put into this series.
