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."

March 22, 2011 | Romantic Melodies for Mandolin Solo

From our German friend and fellow Mel Bay author, Hans-W.F. Landau, "Romantic Melodies for Mandolin Solo," an intriguing collection of international classics to please yourself and audience. From the "Old World" "Ave Maria, to Scottish "Acrobatic Reel." and back to this side of the pond with "Sugarfoot Rag," this is an intermediate level 70 page fretboard collection published last year you can include in your performance repertoire or just personal woodshedding.

Starting off as a guitarist at the age of 11, Hans is well versed in the traditional folk styles, including flamenco and fingerstyle jazz guitar. In addition to performances and his writing, he teaches workshops in Europe.
