Fred Sokolow - Fretboard Roadmaps For Guitar (DVD)
Fred Sokolow Fretboard Roadmaps For Guitar (DVD). If you want to learn your way around the fretboard, this is a great place to start. No DVD can teach you everything, but this one is a great overview and introduction to scales and soloing techniques. The DVD illustrates, very well, various concepts that can be used to improvise in any key and in any style of music.
If you've been playing guitar for a while, are comfortable playing rhythm, but your soloing is pretty much limited to solos you've learned or worked out ahead of time, this DVD is a great next step. The lessons are easy to follow. If you take your time and work your way through all the lessons, you'll definitely become a much better player. Also, as you improvise and start to find your way around the fretboard, moving from one lesson concept to another, you'll start to see how it's all tied together.
DVDs that teach you 50 Licks are good, but learning licks doesn't help you understand how and why things work. No matter what style of guitar you play, you will love this DVD! This DVD helps viewers think like musicians. Using familiar tunes, Fred Sokolow teaches the movable fretboard patterns all the pros use. Guitarists will learn how to solo and play back-up in all keys, all over the fretboard, play movable chords and chord progressions, play chord-based licks and arpeggios, jam or play melodies with the blues box and with pentatonic and major scales and much more. The accompanying booklet comes complete with easy-to-follow notation and diagrams which correspond exactly to the DVD.
