Welcome to our bluegrass mandolin lesson!
In this tutorial, we're diving deep into the classic tune "Lonesome Moonlight Waltz" by the legendary Bill Monroe.

For the rhythm we'll be incorporating chop chords to add that signature bluegrass flavor to the arrangement.

If you're a beginner looking to expand your mandolin skills or an intermediate player aiming to enhance your chop chord technique, you're in the right place.

You'll learn how to master the driving rhythm of this timeless bluegrass piece.

By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a deeper understanding of bluegrass mandolin playing and a new tune to add to your repertoire.

Our arrangement is a three-part arrangement with a melody and chord part on the mandolin and the harmony part on the octave mandolin.

I play the tune with my friend Mikael Grund, a great guitar player from Sweden.
