Grandpa’s Mandolin Coloring Book
I have another project I hope to release in the next 6 months or so. (It still has a lot of work to be done though) I call it a coloring book for children of all ages. By working thru the book, a child (or adult) can learn to play basic mandolin. Kristin Scott Benson read through an early prototype and thought it was a very cool item and even more from the perspective of a mother than a professional musician.
The idea came to me after the announcement we were going to be granparents as I lay awake at night dreaming up a way to teach the child how to play. The book is designed to be an interactive adventure between an adult (parent or granparent) and a child. The reason I think it will work is I tried it out and it works for me and I’m nothing but a large child.
It is a ways off from print yet but I’ll keep you posted.
A comment from 4 minute writer I couln’t get to post and pasted in: How do you come up with all of these original ways to combine ideas? Nice! I agree- you’re never too old for a colouring book. It always bugs me when restaurants give those colouring placemats just to kids. They look at ya funny when you ask for one for yourself…
Hoping you’re in good health.
