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 24, 2009 | Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

It's Christmas Eve so we're taking the week off from our regular "Tips and Tricks" duties. Kind of like the day before Christmas break in Middle School, we're all going to watch a video in class instead...

Today we've got the Site Administrator with a quick rendition of a holiday favorite, and a chance to show off a top five fave, the Old Wave "Solocomp JM" crafted by New Mexico builder, Bill Bussmann. The poor quality video doesn't do this marvelous instrument's aesthetic beauty justice; take some time to get a closer look and click the link below the video:
