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."

August 2, 2011 | John McGann. Encore.

As if the recent Mandolin Cafe 10 Questions interview with world renown artist/teacher/author John McGann wasn't enough, the Bostonian multi-instrument has bedazzled us once again with this terrific YouTube video, this solo rendition of the '70s Yes classic, "Clap" on his Sobell octave mandolin. A veritable one-man orchestra, McGann tears this one up, and the piece translates well from guitar to the OM.
