No longer confined to basic folk genres, any mandolinist aspiring to a broader comprehension of music, including swing, blues, pop, choro, broadway, and even classical can expand his/her playing and through a working knowledge of jazz fundamentals. This breakthrough approach in mandolin pedagogy takes four uncomplicated fretboard patterns (FFcP) and drills a physical familiarity into the player's fingers, softening the fear of upper frets and prepares for the harmonic alterations necessary for effective and intuitive playing of more complex contemporary music. A brief introduction into modes, the player is eased into jamming with audio accompaniment (CD), and eventually an initiation into the most fundamental jazz chord progression of all, the 'ii V7 I' pattern. From the horizontal (melody) to the vertical (chords) and back, the results are a both instinctive and physical grasp of tonal centers and the improvisational fodder of effective performing. An emphasis on pinky strength, finger control and sustain, the book's exercises also develop the player's concepts of tone and melody

Ted Eschliman graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1980 with a Bachelor of Music in Education as a trombone major, where he also taught undergraduate music theory. A part time arranger, he discovered his love for the studio in the 90s, writing and producing three solo albums, as well as dabbling at copywriting and freelance studio singing for a local jingle company. Despite his full time commitments as part owner and marketing director of a local retail music store chain, Dietze Music, he continued to perform jingles and write instrumental beds for local radio stations, as well as co-write music for area Contemporary Christian artists in his spare time. A self-professed hack multi-instrumentalist, Eschliman developed his jazz chops as keyboardist/manager of a jazz quartet.
