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 13, 2010 | Ludewig Dola

Terrific eye candy from our friend, Illinois builder Dale Ludewig, who confides, "A mandola, just dyed and sealed Tuesday afternoon. Going to a man who already has an EL mandolin. We were originally going to go with colors to match that but made a course change. Nice bird's eye, eh?"

The "EL" is in reference to the signature Ludewig mandolin series built for Canadian string tonemeister Emery Lestor. You can read about this weapon of MAS (Mandolin Acquisition Syndrome) destruction in our "Builders for the 21st Century" library, of which Dale takes a premium position.
