Here's what Bluegrass & Old-Time Mandolin Magazine has to say about the course...
"Harold Streeter, and his firm, LeWalt Publishing, have become well known over the years as suppliers of high quality tablatures and instructional material for bluegrass instruments. His "Beginners' Bluegrass Mandolin" course is well up to the usual Streeter standard, and deserves the attention of all beginning players. Not only is the clarity of instruction extremely high, but there is enough material in the course to take you comfortably through the early stages of learning and well on to an intermediate level of musicianship...I particularly liked the idea of the songs having two breaks at two different levels. The simple break gives the beginner the encouragement needed to play something which sounds good, while the more advanced break develops technique and the idea of improvisation...the course is one of the best on the market for beginners, and it should be of immeasurable help to all those who are beginning their careers as Bluegrass mandolinists."
