Even novice guitarists can start playing melodies and improvising lead parts! Marcy brings all the notes, frets, and strings into clear focus giving you a roadmap to the fingerboard. You'll learn scales up the neck and across the strings, how to find and identify intervals, and how melodies can be revealed out of chord shapes. By adding passing tones, slides, hammer-ons, and other ornaments you'll soon be improvising blues, swing, a fiddle tune and a pop song. It's a huge amount of information from the basics of improvisation to the intricacies of the CAGED system. As a bonus Marcy and Cathy provide backup for practice. Beginner. Note/tab included as either booklet or PDF file on the disc. 2 hours.
