Increased Fretboard Coverage

PART ONE: In part one, we study of how a melodic phrase can operate in more than one fingerboard area. This will look at how the same phrase can be re-located up at new positions. Plus, we'll discuss how a guitarist can benefit from redesigning a melodic passage within a key center using syncopation, common phrasing devices, altering the meter, phrasing, direction and flow. The take away of a study like this is to learn to develop these types of changes in order to produce unique new phrases from any existing statement using nearly identical scale tones. 

Watch Part 2 of this lesson to study how guitar parts can be modified to better suit the mix in recordings or during a live performance. We'll learn how to make changes to the format of both melody and rhythm in order to modify phrases to act as an extension of an original idea.
