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 20, 2011 | Hello Mac ModeExplorers everywhere

We made the switch back to Apple Macintosh about a year ago, and have been thoroughly satisfied. One casualty in this move, however, was the inability to access Groveland Software Lab's Windows based programs, Mando ModeExplorer™ and Jazz Cittern Explorer™.

Until now...

Jazz software guru and occasional guest columnist Craig Schmoller has introduced the breakthrough program in online versions for Mac OS 10.X and iOS5 (and 4). Now you can share in the advanced music theory instruction for fifths-tuned instruments, from the world's leading "ModeExploratorium" since 2002.


From the Groveland Labs site:

If you play NST guitar, mandolin, mandola, mandocello, bouzouki, bandolim, or Cittern - or even violin, viola, and cello - Take your playing to the next level with jazzCittern™ ModeExplorer Online. It's your tour guide through the exciting world of chord/scale theory.

With a fast internet connection, all you need is the latest Chrome, Firefox, or Safari browser on your OS X Lion or Windows 7 machine. Or take it with you to the jam: If you are running iOS 4.2.1 or later on your iPad or iPod Touch 3G/4G, etc., you are ready to start exploring today. (*iOS on iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone do not support ModeExplorer sound. All else is fully functional. And cute, too, on the small screen.)

Another new payment option is online accesss for only $7.99 per month. Use it as long as you wish, but you can take it for a spin with a free trial with a quick jazzCittern™ ModeExplorer Online "Day Trip" and get a taste of the new horizons.

For more information, Chrome, Firefox and Safari Users: site link

For Chrome Users recommended: Google Chrome Web App Store.
