Music phrases (licks) are key in using the modes and maqams on the bouzouki. It is one thing to know the notes of the mode and another to use them. For this reason, we are publishing “Phrases on Bouzouki” by the great bouzouki player Manolis Karantinis. It is a superb set of videos featuring key-phrases (licks) in each mode.
In the video, Manolis plays the scale – “abc” notation, solfège – a beautiful improvisation and a smashing set of phrases. The bouzouki was recorded with an AKG 414 microphone by the exceptional sound engineer Athanasios Gikas, at Mythos Studios, Athens.
The seventh video in the series is “Major” which lies exactly on the common natural-major scale. The last two phrases of the video have a “Rast” colour as Manolis uses the B flat note instead of the natural B.
