Classic Bluegrass Mandolin


OK, they titled it wrong. There is nothing remotely classic about this lesson. McReynolds invented “crosspicking” on the mandolin and it is beautiful but VERY difficult to learn. You’ll need this DVD or take a lesson from it’s inventor in person!



Taught by Bluegrass music legend and mandolin stylist, Jesse McReynolds.

75-minute DVD, Includes music + tab book

Legendary mandolinist Jesse McReynolds invented “crosspicking” over thirty years ago, inspiring and influencing all bluegrass mandolin players who have come along since then. Now you can learn it too, straight from the source!

Jesse takes you through the basics of crosspicking, chord formations, exercises, variations, endings, backward rolls and his unique method for splitting strings.

You’ll learn several tunes, in detail, and listen in on a fascinating conversation between Sam Bush and Jesse about the origins of crosspicking, musical influences, instrument set-up and more.

Songs: “Ridge Runner,” “Banks Of The Ohio,” “Dill Pickle Rag,” “Farewell Blues,”& “Snowbird.”
