The best instructors are the ones that inspire.

Sam Bush offers a fantastic wealth of material on these two DVDs – more than three hours of tunes, songs, exercises, warm-ups, ideas, advice and playing tips! He addresses how to improve speed, play with good time and improve your right hand picking, offering vital information and advice about lead soloing and improvising. Also, the art of rhythm mandolin starts with Bill Monroe, and Sam passes along powerful insights into “getting your chop together.” Once you’ve got the basics down, he shows a myriad of rhythmic variations that you can use to add drive, power and excitement to your playing.

Sam Bush

Mandolin Teacher

Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush doesn’t seem old enough to be a musical legend. And he’s not. But he is. Bush has helped to expand the horizons of bluegrass music, fusing it with jazz, rock, blues, funk and other styles. And though Bush is best known for jaw-dropping skills on the mandolin, he is also a three time national junior fiddle champion and Grammy award winning vocalist. He’s the co-founder of the genre-bending New Grass Revival and an in-demand musician who has played with everyone from Emmylou Harris and Bela Fleck to Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett and Garth Brooks. “As long as I’m alive I hope I have the ability to play,” says Bush, a two time cancer treatment survivor. When the ability to play is taken away, it’s humbling. It teaches you a lesson: don’t take it for granted.”

“I’ve played guitar for 35 years and recently decided to try the mandolin. Private lessons were helpful but without other musicians to interact with, my progress was slow. I ordered the Sam Bush DVD and have found it to be the best money I have ever spent for instruction. I’m playing less golf, watching less football and driving my family crazy. This is the most fun I’ve had in a long time playing an instrumet. Thanks for the great product.”

“Great instruction from a great mandolin teacher! Sam is always a favorite, but since viewing this I am much better with timing, I can play “Sailing Shoes” and I have more speed and confidence. Inspires you to practice.”
