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."

December 9, 2006 | YouTube Update

Some of our favorite videos recently uncovered at

Choro For Shadow, John Reischman and John Miller.
John is the king of mandolin tone & right hand/left hand coordination. His duets with John Miller are a personal favorite incarnation of ours of his playing. Nothing like a good guitar/mando duet! (Forgive the annoying Cuica player in the background...)

Tiny Moore (plus!) in the Texas Playboys Tribute to Bob Wills
These guys had such mojo and the hats to match. Western Swing is such a contagious genre.

Hamilton de Holanda and Nilze Carvalho
NEVER get to much Hamilton. Here he teams up with mandolinist Nilze Carvalho (slinging an Ovation mando!) in a lovely, but of course pyrotechnic rendition of Chorando e Sambando.

Plenty more Hamilton, in case you have been caught up. This is what a search will yield:
Hamilton de Holanda
