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."

June 12, 2012 | Getting Into Jazz Mandolin

Still popular and on the Mel Bay "Best Seller!" list, our signature method book "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin" remains a fast track approach not only to accessing the world of jazz through the mandolin, but a tool to deepen your fretboard skills and abilities in multiple keys.

We first introduced the FFcP on the site nine years ago, the Four Fingered Closed Position approach to digging into the fretboard and offered you a way to learn the mandolin through fingering relationships and incorporated them into the book in 2008. Though we also introduce the jazz vocabulary, the goal is to play virtually any style better, classical, pop, Brazilian, and even Bluegrass. The free downloads on the website are a terrific start, but if you want something systematic and can devote a little practice time toward strategic growth, pick up the book and CD.

Price is $16.95 plus S&H ($4.05 US & Canada, $18.00 International)
