Monroe! Lets get that tremolo motor running and those slides greased up, it's time to play some real mandolin. Watch out for the triplet in measure 7. You may need to isolate and loop the measure. Listen several times first, scatting the melody, then try and play it. Playing a quarter note triplet after playing the tremolo is tricky, but is one of the secret ingredients in Monroe mandolin. Also, notice the only time you are using up strokes is in the tremolo. On all other notes it's down-strokes! Even if they are 16th notes. Down-strokes on 16ths are only done at slower speeds, but down-strokes where many would use alternate picking is another key component to Monroe mandolin, and responsible for much of the flavor, flare, and power in his playing. Let's get to picking. Enjoy this one!Learn
