Lesson notes

The first five frets on the guitar contain so many notes and possibilities that one could spend years just learning this section of the fretboard. Fortunately, you don’t have to! With this in-depth lesson you’ll get access to the understanding of the musical alphabet and how it relates to the guitar via these first five frets. In addition, you’ll get awesome exercises that will simultaneously help boost your technique, theory understanding and knowledge of the fretboard. • Chromatic exercises intended to get the player familiar with the musical alphabet as it pertains to this first position on the neck • Discussions about reference notes and points of interest along the neck that make learning the surrounding notes much easier • Scales in the keys of C, A, and E minor all within the first five frets, and incorporating both closed and open notes
