Lesson notes

Once you have a grasp on the complex relationship between the strings and the frets, you need to take that knowledge and transpose it across the fretboard. By learning the patterns of notes and the tuning differences between the strings you’ll begin to understand how to traverse the fretboard in a more confident and precise manner. This lesson is geared for the beginner who already has an understanding of reference notes on the first half of the neck, but who really wants to master the fretboard and have full control over the range of the instrument. • Octaves and their uses and fingerings along the fretboard, including several examples • Discussion of reference notes and the idea that the same note can be played across the fretboard on different strings • Pentatonic examples that detail a commonly used scale both in one position and going from the lowest note to the highest note, encapsulating the entire neck and all its positions
