The tip of the week is a quick way to find a higher octave of the same note. Essentially this realizing that both the lowest string and highest string on the guitar are both E strings. So, any note on the to learn any guitar solo note for note. This is a great way to improve your ear training, or aural skills, and learn new ideas to increase your own guitar playing vocabulary. It can also help boost your own creativity and improvisation skills.
This week's lesson is how to expand a simple major chord rhythm guitar pattern into a box pattern that makes a great sounding riff. the pentatonic box patterns we all know and use as guitarists. This will help open up the fretboard. You won't just be stuck in one position using only one pentatonic box shape. Using this simple idea really helps you gain confidence in playing in new areas of the fretboard. >p> If you like this lesson, then GT has a lot more that cover ideas on how to expand this idea & your rhythm guitar playing in a variety of guitar styles!
