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 8, 2013 | Broaden your horizons with Minor FFcP

We've been aware of lots of recent internet chatter about the FFcP approach to understanding the the mandolin fretboard from some folks who have just discovered it (and have questions). Nice for folks to experience that initial excitement when they begin to unravel its secrets--even cooler once they've devoted several weeks and are able to enjoy the subconscious benefits as well.

The Major FFcP lays the groundwork for the "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin" book, but we've also added some more exercises after publication, including the Dorian/Minor FFcP version. You can read more about the philosophies behind it in our free Downloads page.
