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."

March 13, 2013 | J.L. Smith emando on 'IIIrd Tyme Out' project

We just heard from one of our favorite emando builders, John Smith of J.L. Smith Mandolins who tells us one if his 4-string telecaster style mandolins is featured on several cuts of the "IIIrd Tyme Out" CD released last January, "Bluegrassed" for Cracker Barrel resturants/stores. Renown mandolinist Wayne Benson used it on the tracks, 2. Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde, 7. My window faces the South, and 10. Tulsa Time.


As you'd expect, the project is very good, and can be purchased through the Cracker Barrel Website, Amazon Music, or iTunes. Preview some of the songs there.
