We’re happy to announce that Joe K. Walsh will be teaching an Octave Mandolin streaming-video Course on Peghead Nation. He’s putting the final touches on preparing the material, but you can see and hear what he has in mind for the course by checking out his Course Introduction video, above. If you’d like to be updated when the Course is launched, please fill out the form below, or by clicking here.
In Joe’s Octave Mandolin Course, you’ll learn to transfer what you know on the mandolin to its bigger cousin and how to exploit the octave mandolin’s potential for more complex, guitar-oriented accompaniment styles. Joe will give you instruction on adapting mandolin techniques, scales, arpeggios, and chords to the octave mandolin, and will teach tunes as played by great octave mandolin players like Sarah Jarosz, Chris Thile, Sierra Hull, Tim O’Brien, and more. He’ll also cover accompaniment styles that suit the octave mandolin, so you can play along with others and accompany yourself. For intermediate mandolin, fiddle, or guitar players with a basic knowledge of their instrument.
We’ll be launching Octave Mandolin with Joe K. Walsh this spring, so sign up below to get email notices when the Course is live and accepting students!
