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."

Somehow we managed to miss our March 19, 2003 anniversary. We're still going strong and hope to continue to bring better mandolinning to the world.

We started the site primarily focused on jazz theory on the fretboard, but later broadened out the mission to resources and assistance playing mandolin to include other genres, especially those that benefit from better-developed closed finger playing through our FFcP approach. We're also proud of the collaborations on some great instruments over the years including the Rigel Q-95, Old Wave SoloComp JM, Clark JM,& JM5, Sorensen Sprite JM, and of course the flagship "Getting into Jazz Mandolin" book.


We continue to post bi-daily news updates weekly tips column, and Mandolin Sessions archives.
