In one of the Star Wars movies, Yoda said this:
“Try not. Do or do not! There is no try.”
Complicated, kinda deep stuff, for a little green guy.
Apparently, what was intended by this saying is don’t attempt a task with the attitude of just “giving it a shot.”
Instead, attempt the task with the attitude of mastering it.
That’s good advice for people learning things on the guitar.
I’ve spoken with people who never thought they’d be able to actually understand the fretboard, and how it works together.
Because of this mindset, when they actually tried to learn the scales, it was from a very timid perspective. They’d learn a little, then quickly lose interest, mostly because they thought they couldn’t do it.
Thankfully, it isn’t that hard to learn how the fretboard works… completely.
I’m not promising you’ll turn into a guitar playing Jedi Master or anything, but I can promise you that if you apply yourself, you WILL learn the fretboard using this method.
In fact, I guarantee it.
Learning the fretboard is likely easier than you think. In fact, the Guitar Scale Patterns course is only two hours… a single DVD.
And yet, it can unlock the mysteries of the fretboard…
