Friday morning, Steve treated us to another brain workout…this time all around scales. You can get all the basic material and more from his Major Scale Mastery videos (available from his Storefront). The scales he references are in the pdf material that comes with those videos.
Then the incredibly talented Johnny Hiland spent a little over an hour playing, teaching, demonstrating, and reminiscing about guitar. Some great takeaways from his master class:
- Guitar Playing (and practicing) should be fun)
- The most important part of the song is the melody (seems like a duh!, but I know players who get carried away with shredding the solo and completely lose the thread of the melody…).
That doesn’t begin to touch all the high points. Watch the video…you’ll be educated, entertained, and amazed.
