A new book on improvisation is now available for bluegrass mandolin players. Based on the concept of learning by playing, this 200 page book covers a wide range of improvisation tools and how to implement them in your playing. A large number of examples are presented in both tablature and standard notation, so that a theoretical background is not required. The small amount of theory needed is simply presented and easily learned step by step. A series of exercises designed to help the player develop improvisational skills are included in the book. As an instruction tool, the book can easily be combined with the instructor s individual philosophy or by a student wishing to study alone. The subject matter is varied in difficulty and can be used by both the beginner and more advanced player as an instructional guide and reference book. The major-themes in the book are: The pentatonic sound, scale and major-chord based improvising with any Bluegrass-Tune, Double-stop improvisation, Minor chords and Keys, The blues sound, Melody oriented improvisation, How to use: Monroe Style, Cross picking, Hot licks, how to simplify a lick, and more.

Hi mandolin-pickers! I'm Jesper Rübner-Petersen and I was born on the 8th of July 1969 in Aarhus/Denmark, where I grew up with Bluegrass and Acoustic Music because of my banjo-playing father. At the age of 12 I started to play the guitar and as soon as I was ready to grab a couple of chords I luckily got the chance to play in different Oldtime and Bluegrass Bands. Besides playing bluegrass, I've always tried to be open about new influences and decided to follow the jazz program at the "American Institute of Music" in Vienna, Austria, which I completed in March 1993. Staying at the A.I.M. opened up my eyes to harmony and theory and the understanding of improvisation. Around 1994, after years of intensive guitar playing, I bought myself a mandolin in order to try out a second instrument - a purchase which changed my life. In July 2000 the destiny of love made me move to South Germany, where I also started my professional career as a guitar and mandolin teacher. At the same time, I started teaching at Beppe Gambetta's Summer-Workshop, the International Workshop Musique Acoustique in Belgium, the Mandolin-Workshop at the New Acoustic Gallery and other local workshops. Over the years, while traveling around doing concerts and workshops, I often was asked questions about improvising and how to do it. After some research, I figured out that the demand of improvisation knowledge seemed to be international and so came the idea about writing an improvisation book to my mind.
