THE FRETBOARD LESS TRAVELED
Breathe new life into your playing. In this section you will learn some new approaches to the same old chords. Some are easy and some require more effort but they will set you apart from the typical "Strummer." These lessons are beneficial for playing in a band, accompanying a vocalist or other instrumentalists and just chording songs on your own. Learn the best ways to communicate harmony, rhythm and mood in your playing. 90% of all guitar playing is rhythm playing anyway so why not be the best you can be.
