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 17, 2012 | Mike Marshall ArtistWorks School of Mandolin

We're big fans of Mike Marshall, not only his incredible playing prowess, but his gift of communication and teaching skills. His easy-going, yet intensely practical approach to teaching mandolin yields an encyclopedia of tips and strategies toward the goal of mastering the instrument.

Moveable Chords
Three Moveable Chords
Cuckoo's Nest

Harmonizing the Melody
Doable Double Stops
The Mandolin's Place in the Band

Part of the ArtistWorks experience includes use of their patented Video Exchange system where you submit videos of your playing and Mike himself goes over your video and responds by video giving you feedback on your playing.

We're looking forward to a staff write up on the experience next month from the always articulate, James Condino.
