The SECRET Link to Lead GUITAR Range...

Far too many guitar players only understand how their lead licks, phrases and runs exist in a single fretting area. 

This is generally due to the fact that the player doesn't understand that their lead guitar ideas can also exist in several other areas of the neck...

Once the guitarist understands how to "re-locate" their guitar licks into other areas of the neck, new patterns will start to emerge and they will become a normal part of their playing technique.

This lesson breaks down the concept of expanding fret-board range through working across the neck with every lick you know. With every new guitar pattern, performed in new fretboard regions, will come fresh ideas for eventually dominating the entire fingerboard.


Think of any guitar lick that you know right now. It could be a blues lick, a rock phrase, anything. If you can't think of one, or you just don't know any licks right now you can use my example lick provided below in example lick #1.

Example Lick #1).

Now that we've established our foundational lick to work from, let's re-locate this lick to another fingerboard location. Since the starter lick from example #1 is in the lower region of the neck, let's re-organize it into someplace else on the frets. If you're not sure on how this works, take a look at example lick #2.

Example Lick #2).

As you can tell, the phrase from example #1 is now re-located into another fingering range on the guitar neck. This new location lays out the notes slightly different. The options of how the fingerings set themselves up is going to introduce a new sound. The other aspect is how the notes shift to other string sets. This also changes the tonal color of the lick too.

Let's take the lick into one more fingering range. Have a look over the location shown in lick #3 below. Here we can tell that we're running out of strings and out of room on the neck. So, the fingering drastically alters in this new location. Make a study of this layout as shown below in lick #3.

Example Lick #3).

Just because we've run out of room for the octave range of this lick doesn't mean that we're done exploring further options with this lick. There's one more idea we can use to take this line even further yet. The final concept involves moving the lick up an octave into a brand new tonal range. Try out this process by performing the lick's new location and octave range in example #4 below.

Example Lick #4).

Playing licks over and over within the same finger locations doesn't have to be a downer for you as a player. All you need to do is take any guitar solo or lick that you're currently playing and re-locate it into a few other places of the neck. You don't even need to know notes or scales to do this. All it takes in a few minuets work and a decent ear.

Listen to where one note is located from within your current lick and test how it can move up along the fingerboard. Here is a good tip, the notes most often are relocated up 4 or 5 frets along the neck span on the next string lower. It's easy to do this and the pay-off is fantastic for your guitar abilities.
