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."

December 7, 2012 | Getting Into Jazz Mandolin. Success!

Now this is the kind of feedback we love the best!...

I am proud to say that I finished "Getting into Jazz Mandolin." Finished means that I can play the lesson at 120 bpm. I started 11/02/2009. I know because I write the date in the corner when starting a new lesson.
This was a great book and it is so easy to go up the neck. I always know what key I am playing. The fingerings are the best part and the lessons really reinforced the idea."


Don't feel like a failure if you aren't able to get all the way through the book, though. Even if you master a few of the pages, you can be a better player. The FFcP alone is enough to justify getting the book.

If you haven't tried, maybe you should ask for it for Christmas. Or buy one for a friend.
