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."

May 15, 2012 | Special opportunity: Mann 2-Point Flatback Oval Hole Mandolin

We'd like to make you aware of a special instrument from JazzMando sponsor and perennial emando builder fave, Jonathon Mann. You may not be aware that the Tennessee builder is responsible for producing some intriguing acoustic mandolin family instruments, and he's offering one of his 2-points on his site to assist in funding a church mission trip to Honduras that his wife and son will be going on in June.

You have a chance to get an amazing instrument just off his bench AND all proceeds from the sale of this mando will go to help fund the outreach.
