Reviews - What do customers think about Mel Bay A Smokey Mountain Christmas for Mandolin?
nice arrangements Jan 4, 2008
Most of the pieces in the book have a basic melody version (music and tab) with guitar tab accompaniment and then a harder mandolin arrangement (music and tab) with guitar chords. I really enjoyed most of the arrangements - some are pretty, some are bluegrass-y.

Good book. Nice mandolin style playing. Probably not for the novice player.
