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."

January 31, 2012 | New Guitarra Baiana model--Signature Marcos Moletta


We've been following Brazilian musician Marcos Moletta for several years, paying special attention to his assortment of amazing electric mandolins, from his white Flying V to his recent Caico built acquisition, a lovely lemon yellow electric 5-string. According to the virtuoso instrumentalist, "This is great for me, one more color on my palette ... is a timbre pulled to mids, and the 3 key positions actually offers 3 timbres, being the middle position, humbucker style and ends with its single coil."

Watch as he demonstrates with his usual finesse, the finer features of this amazing new toy in this impromptu video:
