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."

October 2, 2012 | Eko electric bowlback bouzouki

We mentioned this eBay score three years ago and thought it worth digging out, a delightful Eko electric bowlback bouzouki acquisition. For two and a half bills we captured this interesting artifact that's long on panache and large with tone. We've kept the Italian-made artifact tuned the way it came, octave pairings on the wound courses, Gg Dd AA EE. The neck is slightly warped, but it plays amazingly well, and some of the best lower register tone we've ever heard out of an amplifier. Included below is a demo of its sound in a church performance.
