We’re excited to announce that we’ve launched a great new course called Octave Mandolin with Joe K. Walsh on Peghead Nation, and you can enroll now. Take a look at his Course Introduction video, above, and see the lineup of launch lessons by going to the main Octave Mandolin page. Joe will be adding new lessons to the course each month.
In this new 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.
