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."

June 9, 2011 | Matt Flinner on Lawrence Smart 10-string

We've reviewed the incredible craft of Hailey Idaho builder Lawrence Smart recently, including a luscious Two-point and an earlier prototype of his breakthrough 10-string A-body played by the likes of Mike Marshall and John McGann. YouTube treats us to a nice video demonstration (and a cool tune) by the Matt Flinner Trio, January 29 in Salt Lake City, Utah. (This was one of Matt's Music Du Jour contributions for the concert.)

Enjoy the instrument and the song!
