Herschel Sizemore - AcuTab Transcriptions, Vol. I (back in print!)
Mandolin legend Herschel Sizemore’s first set of authorized transcriptions! Serious students of bluegrass history often see Herschel as the first stylistic deviation from the Bill Monroe school within the realm of traditional bluegrass mandolin. His playing is crisp and clear and always melodic and memorable. Herschel's influence has now spanned two generations with players from David Grisman to Chris Thile citing his impact on their music.
Included in this 70 page book are more than 30 solos for 13 tunes taken from Herschel’s two great recordings, Back In Business and My Style. Learn Rebecca, Grey Eagle, Amandolina and many others in the distinctive and influential Sizemore style. All tunes are presented in both tab and standard notation and were carefully proofed with Herschel to ensure accuracy. Left hand fingering and pick direction is included where indicated.
Don’t miss this important book! Together with the two Sizemore CDs (also available from AcuTab), Herschel's book offers a blueprint for tasteful mandolin playing in the bluegrass style. Most of the material will be within the reach of advanced beginners, and experienced players will find a feast of inspiring and challenging music.
