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 11, 2011 | June Mandolin Sessions: Connecting Chords

In our April edition of Mandolin Sessions, we looked at the "static" changes of a typical 12-bar Blues progression and explored how we could use inversions of the 3-note chord fingerings to inject a little variety into your comping. For our recent June (2011) entry, we take this a step farther and show you how to connect these chords in a systematic, yet intuitive manner.

We can't stress enough how these simple forms can supercharge the way you play rhythm. See what we mean. Read article: Static Changes: Connecting Chords
