In Richter Mandolin: Postmodern Blues, Rock & Alt-Folk Mandolin, mandolinist Jim Richter shares insights and techniques that punctuate his style of blues, rock, and folk mandolin. Key to this edition are three chapters that address stylistic development, motivation, and self-conceptualization as a mandolinist. Almost 50 pages of tablature and 10 pages of diagrams in this 140 page volume cover concepts such as soloing, pentatonic scales, back-up, double-stops, and arpeggios. This book would not be considered a method book; rather, it could be considered a tip book for rock and blues styling.

Not for old eyes
Seems like well thought out manual but at least for the aging eye is difficult to read and I can’t find any way to zoom in.
