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."

December 7, 2014 | 3-note chord grip. Good for holding your coffee, too.

3-note mandolin chords. Better range and timbre, more versatility in transposing up and down the fingerboard, and of course, a more pragmatic base for chord melody playing. Terrific for other 5th tuned instruments including mandola, mandocello, and 5-string mandolins, too.

Not only for great for sipping you coffee in the morning, our best-selling chord mug is a chance to learn our favorite sets of 3-note chord grips. Stick to the lower three strings and build your comping vocabulary of them leaving your E strings for melody and the "color commentary" of chord extensions, #9, b13, #11, etc.

Helping you drink these in, our best-selling 3-note chord mug!
