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 19, 2012 | Austin City Limits - Grisman, Marshall, Burns, Moore, Gimble

There weren't many times the great mandolin legends of the 20th century Johnny Gimble, Tiny Moore, and Jethro Burns shared the stage. Possibly the best video documentary was a 1981 appearance "Mandolin Special" on Austin City Limits. The first 27 minutes of "warm-up" act with the David Grisman Quintet (including a very young Mike Marshall and Darol Anger) is also an incredible treat with the Dawg himself paying an endearing treat to the powerhouse fret trio.

Map out about 60 minutes to take this in. It's well worth the time to listen, study, and/or simply enjoy!
