  • Hammer-ons are a great tool to help you get more notes with out giving too much of the workload to your picking hand. Practice landing right on your finger tip to get good volume. Watch your timing in the B part. Use the app when you are away from the instrument to listen to the timing. Isolate the measures with the dotted 8th and quarter notes separately. Listen to the measures repeatedly until you can hum along with the mandolin. If you are on your computer, go to "more settings" in the bottom right hand corner and dial down the band volume so you hear more of the mandolin. Listening is just as important to your musical development as playing your instrument.

  • The hammer-ons are still here to help some, but we've given your right hand a little more work to do! Practice as slow as you need to get the notes clean and clear. The B-part is largely unchanged, but the substitution licks are more on an intermediate/advanced level, so be sure to check those out. Also, use those dotted quarter notes in the B-part as a chance to explore your creativity. Add some notes in those big spaces. Even if you are just playing eighth or sixteenth notes and not moving the pitch. If you are more adventurous, remember to play in the Key of A. Pay attention to your target notes and try to walk up to, or down to, that next melody note with your own variation.
