Scales are the single most used musical device in jazz improvisation and comping. In this course, you'll master scales in the common "positions system" efficiently, easily and logically. Plus, a friendly teacher delivers the materials to you step-by-step. (-:

Through clear and concise explanations you'll be shedding the light on the most obscure parts of the guitar fretboard. This course focuses on scale positions and what lies within them. Instead of seeing a chart with a bunch of dots on the guitar and being asked to memorize everything, here, we'll focus on the music making potential of the scale positions.

Step-by-step, note-by-note and through precise assignments, you'll visualize the major scale, the II-V-I progression in every key and in every position (including arpeggios and chords). Don't be scared now! We build everything from scratch and every lesson is progressively *slightly* more difficult.

This course uses a radically different approach to learning the classic 'positions', so the sequence of the assignments makes for a smooth learning curve. No more roadblocks, no more quitting after you memorized a bunch of dots on the fretboard (and forgot them!) Simply put: shed a few scales and make LOTS of music with them!
