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 17, 2014 | Getting Into Jazz Mandolin Errata. Some book typos!

The cool thing about internet publishing is you can go back and correct mistakes. Most of the time it's easy to revisit documents and change text in the cyber world, edit wrong notes or fingerings in the exercises. In print publication however, once you commit to ink and paper, you can't go to your reader's houses or music store shelves and retract or redo.

Over the months we've had readers catch errors and report them to us. We encourage that with our contact button, and in the case of our "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin" book, we've opened a new page to publicly document these changes. If you have the book, you might want to grab a pencil and go through it to tag these for your own studies. Again, if you catch some we haven't, let us know.

It's been a couple years now, and we still have some sharp shooters uncovering minor error. Rather than let you go crazy, we continue to add, hopefully giving you peace of mind, and a cleaner path to fretboard mastery.

Here's a list of the latest in our "deep cuts:"

  • Pg. 73, Key heading table, top right -- Keys should read Bb, B, F, F#

  • Pg. 75, Key heading table, top right -- Keys should read C, C#, G, G#

  • Pg. 77, Key heading table, top right -- Keys should read D, D#, A, A#
