Like many aspiring guitarists, when I first started studying guitar, I struggled memorizing scales. Determined, I tried every memorization strategy that I knew, spent hours playing one note to the next, and found myself feeling exhausted and defeated time and time again. Now imagine, if you can, that one day I just start playing scales up and down the fretboard without ever getting lost.
This is what happened to me, and I created this course so you can experience this freedom as well. If I am able to help you avoid feelings of being overwhelmed and guide you to stay focused on a few simple exercises, you will be able to master the fretboard as I, and the countless students in my private studio, have.
If you're wondering how this course is different from every other book or resource out there, here's a brief description. In a nutshell, The Fretboard Solution talks only about the major scale and uses an idea that I call the pivot method.
Most books are crammed with modal scales and theory concepts to impress you with the elaborate terminology. Even the resources that claim to offer simplified methods seem to make things more complicated. As a result, students are often inundated with information and never accomplish what they set out to achieve—mastering the fretboard. Focusing on just one aspect of the guitar will guarantee your success!
How do I know this? I have had students memorize the entire fretboard in a matter of weeks. Please re-read the previous sentence carefully. Yes, and you, too, will master the entire fretboard!!
If you take the time to learn not just scale patterns but a new way of thinking about guitar, you will be playing up and down the neck in no time. The ultimate outcome of this achievement is an increase in your guitar playing confidence! Please understand, this isn't a course that will result in overnight success; rather, it teaches a creative method to make learning easier. Practice is still going to be involved but the results will be well worth the effort!
