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."

October 5, 2013 | Guitar to mandolin

Many of our readers come from a guitar background, and we've gone to great lengths to encourage these players to not think of the mandolin as just a "little guitar." There are three major strengths to exploit to make it uniquely mandolin, tremolo, range, and cross-picking. We discussed it in a recent interview, and in depth in this week's Tips and Tricks column.

Make the most of these attributes.

Don't be "clacky."
