"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."
January 31, 2011 | Guitarra Baiana "VALKYRIA" 5-string
We enjoyed watching this video even before the English subtitles were included. From Rio de Janeiro, Guitarra Baiana expert Marcos Moletta describes the features and specs of his latest design in a collaboration with luthier Fabio Batanj, "Valkyria," a stunning Flying V white 5-string electric mandolin. In the demo he walks us though specs like pickup configurations, woods, and passionately describes in his native Portuguese, the influences on the overall design aesthetic.
Enjoy the 14 minute presentation and explore some of his video archives in his YouTube channel.
