    Default Amanda Jewell pdf transcription from Skaggs - Campbell

    Hello there!

    I've been wanting to transcribe mandolin solos for a while as a way of improving my bluegrass vocabulary and, finally, I've been able to make myself start.

    I didn't even had to think about where to start: Casey Campbell's Mandolin Duets album is a favorite of mine and a great mando resource, so I've transcribed the whole song Amanda Jewell, both Ricky Stagg and Casey Campbell's melodies and breaks. I've included finger positioning where I felt was needed. Overall, a fun and informative process!

    And I thought, if it's done why not share it? So there you go, here's the youtube link where you can listen to my take on the song -a little slower than the original version- and download the pdf -link at the description. I hope someone can use it to enjoy playing it and maybe learn something new (I did for sure!).

    Oh, and I'm already working on Andy Leftwich's incredible Big Mon take!

    Best,

    Isaac

    Great picking! and a fine job on transcribing those breaks. The harmonized part really rocks. Thanks!

    I'm glad it can be useful, guys! I just finished transcribing the melody and break for this Andy Leftwich's Big Mon version. My god, isn't he a monster! I hope to be able to study it soon and post it here.
