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."

We've just posted another addition to our growing list of FFcP Studies. Rather than going into detail here, click on the link for an explanation as to why this is the 2nd most important scale you can learn to play great jazz. We think it's a bigger deal than Pentatonic Scales.


We've brought it up in our most recent Mandolin Sessions article, Something Old, Something New; new ways of looking at old scales., and you'll find a great application in the upcoming February article.

More on that later; meantime, call up Augmented 11th FFcP and print the PDF to add you to your practice regimen!

Don't miss last weeks Tip on World Dominants; there's a vital connection with this new exercise.
