Into The Cauldron transcriptions

marshall_thile_1.jpgMike Marshall has prepared a book of transcriptions from his 2003 CD Into The Cauldron, a set of stunning duets with fellow mando-wizard Chris Thile. It contains transcriptions from 9 of 11 tracks on the CD, including the main melody, harmony parts where applicable and a few of the solos taken during these tunes.

Mike thinks that folks will be able to learn a thing or two from these pieces, transcribed for the book by Matt Flinner.

“I just hope folks get as much joy from playing these tunes as we did.

Keep in mind that we did 95% of these arrangements without written music, so it’s a little strange for me to see it in written form. But I hope that these pages will help fill in some gaps for people if they just can’t seem to transcribe it off the CD by ear.

Believe me….  I understand.”

The book has just been published, and will be available within a few days from Elderly Instruments, who will be the sole distributor.
