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."

August 18, 2011 | Effects for electric mandolin--video tour

If you've owned an electric mandolin (or are thinking of getting one), you may have had the itch to explore some effects pedals. If you hail from an acoustic background, this can be a terrifying journey, and for many, no discernable starting point. We have your relief.

From Marcos Moletta (his 4th mention here), 12 minute video tour of some of his cool toys, and the chance to experience how some of these work for an emando! So many things you can do, and this is a pretty good sampler from tremolo (no, not that kind), distortion, delay, octave, to a host of multi-effects, all as close as your feet. The Brazilian Guitarra Baiana authority offers some cool demonstrations, and a chance for you to get a glimpse of where to start.
