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."

The following video is an example of one. It was fun to see an Ovation mandolin, in our opinion one of the best stage mandolins ever produced.

We'll give the super star and America Idol judge some credit for being as good a harmonica player as Bob Dylan.
