Mercer Ellington has stated that Juan Tizol conceived the melody to "Caravan" in 1936 as a result of his days studying music in Puerto Rico, where they couldn't afford much sheet music so the teacher would turn the music upside down after they had learned to play it right-side up. This "inversion" technique led to a modal sound throughout Tizol's work - wikipedia entry for "modal jazz"

Stella 12 Conversion
« on: August 10, 2016, 03:09:17 PM »
If anyone's interested in a Stella 12-string, I happened to stop in at Lark Street Music in Teaneck, NJ yesterday on an errand for a friend. Buzz has an absolutely killer large-body Stella that's been converted from six to 12-string. Pick this thing up and play a chord and you'll think you're Leadbelly, if only for a minute. Because it's a conversion, it's very inexpensive for a large-body Stella 12. Decalcomania top and MOTS fingerboard. Even with those visual impediments, if I had the money I'd've bought it.

No connection to the store or the guitar, just thought someone might want to know.
