Playing Anything from Anywhere: Thinking in Intervals, Not Shapes

About the Book

[81 pages]

-Cure the "guitar player curse", which is starting every scale with the 1st finger from the low E string, ascending aimlessly, unaware of any of the intervals being played and when.

-Teach you to begin thinking in terms of intervals and chord qualities: What the intervals do, and how to manipulate them to create other scales and modes.

-Teach you to start hearing and playing chord tones on downbeats, and passing/color tones on offbeats, which is the only way to convey the harmony you are trying to achieve, both in written music and soloing or improvising. 

This book will not just give you a fish. It'll teach you to fish. It is not just another scale encyclopedia packed with thousands of useless scales that are all practically the same thing. It is meant for anyone who doesn't have a full understanding of how the fretboard works, and who may need assistance in learning how to maneuver around chord changes (or creating your own chord changes as a soloist; ex., my winning solo in the Mayones/Seymour Duncan solo contest).
