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 27, 2015 | John McGann's Smart Fanned Fret 10 String

We're coming up on three years since the untimely passing of multi-instrumentalist teaching legend John McGann. It's with bittersweet sentiments, we noted the listing of the the artist's personal Lawrence Smart 10-string mandolin for sale by his estate. The sale is being handled by a friend of the family and well-reputed mandolin community member, Rich Michaud.

As you can imagine (and witness in the embedded video), the instrument is amazing and was no doubt well-loved.

We agree with Rich. The instrument deserves respect and a good home--someone who can appreciate its legacy. Asking price is a reasonable $6500.
