Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

Errata for "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin"

You can go through months of scrutiny editing published materials before it hits the printing press. You can even enlist outside eyes, as we did with a whole team of eager proofreaders. Despite all the efforts and good intentions, there will be mistakes. We've listed out ones we've caught or have been reported to us.
