    Matt Flinner's The View From Here Transcriptions and Exercises

    RIPTON, VT. — To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Matt Flinner's The View From Here, a book of transcriptions of the melodies and solos played on the recording is now available for pre-ordering.

    An instant classic when it was released, listening today, the music is still as fresh and exciting as it was when it first came out.

    In addition to the transcriptions, Matt designed exercises for each of the tunes to help mandolin players with the tricky parts of the tunes. The book features an exercise for each tune, honing in on the skills a player needs to play the tune.

    The book is 60 pages long and spiral bound to lay flat on a music stand or desk. Besides the transcriptions and exercises, a selection of photos of the groups Matt has played with along with those of his legendary Gilchrist F5 are included. Music is in standard notation and tablature.

    The preorder price will be $25 including shipping. The deadline for preorders is October 31. After that date the price will be $25 plus actual shipping costs.

      Hi,

      I’m in the UK too and would like to know the shipped charge. This is one of my favourite CD’s.

      Jack & mandrian: I'll try to have an estimate in the next day or two on shipping to the UK. And I'll make sure you get a discount!
      Thanks,

      Thanks Matt,
      Always loved this album and it would be great to be able to play at least some of it.

      Look forward to hearing from you regarding postage cost and hope to get an order in as soon as possible.

      Looks like you have a lot of fans in the Uk so I think quite a few others will be interested as well.

      Thanks again.

      Hi Jack, mandrian, Paul,

      Looks like shipping to the UK and Ireland is about $18. Since we're doing free shipping in the U.S. (through 10/31), which amounts to about $5, how about $12 for shipping on pre-orders to the UK and Ireland? Let me know if that works for you. And feel free to email me at mattflinnermando@gmail.com if you have any other questions.

      Thank you!
      Matt

      Hi Matt, I have placed my order and sent you an extra $12 separately to cover the shipping cost to the UK.

      Hope that will be ok with you.

      Really looking forward to seeing it and attempting to play some of the tunes.

      Thanks

      All the best

      Hey friends,

      Just FYI, if you want to place an order from outside the US, we can ship to you. Since we're offering free shipping in the US through the end of the month, we can offer discounted rates internationally that generally will look something like this:

      Canada; $5
      UK, Ireland, Europe: $12
      Australia, NZ: $15
      Japan: $15

      After 10/31, shipping costs will basically be around $5 higher than these discounted rates (shipping has gotten pretty expensive these last few years!).
      If you have any questions about other destinations, please feel free to email me at mattflinnermando@gmail.com and we'll get you squared away.
      Thanks, everyone!

      All the best,
      Matt

      Thanks Matt, I’ll be placing my order shortly. $12.00US seems right to me.

      I love that it’s an exercise book as well as the transcriptions. One of my favorite albums.

      Hi Andy,

      Ha! Well, I think that can happen if you don't think it'll ruin the value of the book. On it's way soon, and thanks so much!
