Excerpt:
In order to apply this powerful idea we need to get used to systematically exploring the guitar to find every place you can put the notes (voices) together that form that chord progression in any and every given chord progression. And that is where it gets quite involved.

One example: finding lots of places on the D, G and B string to play the Dominant to Tonic motion G (V) --> C (I):

E |-----------------------------|
B |-0-1--3-5--3-1--8-8--12-13---|
G |-0-0--4-5--4-0--7-9--12-12---|
D |-0-2--5-5--5-2--9-10-12-14---|
A |-----------------------------|
E |-----------------------------|
