Tips & Tricks Mel Bay Mandolin Sessions








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."

Almost as beautiful in progress as the finished product. Austin Clark recently posted some compelling pictures of the latest batch of guitar-bodied octave mandolins in his Facebook page. Forging 20-1/4" scale and 12- to 14-fret neck, the Idaho builder has developed an international reputation for quality OMs, in addition to his already stellar F- and A-bodies and 2-points.

One of our favorites of course, is our commissioned guitar-bodied Clark JM 5-string, also gaining popularity.

See more of his pictures of these and his other instruments on his Facebook page.
