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."

February 18, 2015 | 'I vi ii7 V7' Reboot.

Last week's Tips & Tricks archive article was a review of the iconic 'I vi ii7 V7' patterns in ergonomic 3-note chord fingerings. If you're off-put by the theory nomenclature, just ignore the text and play the TAB through.

These are pure gold, and once you get them into your fingers, the magic of the 5ths tuning on the mandolin allows you to start them a fret or two up or down, and be able to play in all 12 keys!
