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."

November 12, 2011 | Mandolin Sessions helps

Hard to believe we're coming up on our 8th year anniversary with Mel Bay's online webzine Mandolin Sessions. Starting in December of 2003, 6 articles a year, we've logged in more than 40 already, covering such subjects as gravity notes, jazz articulations, concepts of theory and improvisation, fretboard positioning, tone production, modes and soloing, and one of our favorites, our recent four part series on 3-note chord comping.

We mention individual articles in the "Further" footnotes at the bottom of our weekly Tips and Tricks' columns. We encourage you to go back and review some of these. For a complete listing, refer to this page: Mandolin Sessions Jazz Mandology Achives.

Get caught up!
