Guitar at Work (or School) - Week 1 - Posture

Fretboard Visualization...

This is just a tip for players ready to explore more than the beginning chord shapes and who are wanting to gain more facility in soloing...

As I began to re-learn guitar, I knew I needed to jump start my playing by getting more familiar with the guitar's fretboard.  Oh, I knew a lot of chord positions, and knew how to construct chords, but what I lacked was a broader knowledge of how to connect these chords up and down the fretboard.  I really enjoyed old time music, as played by…

Do you want to buy a instrumental guitar cd?
