Bryan teaches his methods for visualizing and moving around the fingerboard smoothly and comfortably as you expand into new territory up the neck.
- After covering closed shape scales…we're gonna continue the idea of learning more…about the fingerboard, I'm going to introduce a technique,…this is an approach of mine to playing up and down the neck…whether it be, you know, executing solos or improvising.…This is a particular technique that I use to look…at the fingerboard and ways to think about the fingerboard.…There's lots of, you know, different styles of guitar…playing, there's different ways to think…about this kind of stuff.…But for me and for bluegrass playing,…I feel like this is a pretty strong way to go about it.…
It's, you know, the goal is move up and down…the fingerboards smoothly.…And we talked about, in some of closed shape scales,…about transitions and so we're gonna get into some of that.…But it's based on this concept of three basic chord shapes…and what that is,…the first one is the F shape.…And I showed you this chord back in the basics.…And the way that works and the reason I like that…for a basic chord shape is that you can move…it up and down the fingerboard.…
