Pathways to Melody
Follow the bouncing ball (melody by the numbers)… This workshop approaches fingerboard study through the playing of melody: first on one string, then on multiple strings. Scales, chord shapes, multiple note positions are reviewed to provide context. Fingerboard mapping, octave grids and lines of redundancy, points of reference (position markers and root strings), scales and solfege, all leading to comprehensive understanding and total fingerboard familiarity.
Handout materials to include songs, fingerboard graphics and other information. Bring a guitar, in tune. Recording permitted.
Level: Beginner, Intermediate
