In part 1 of this Fretboard Visualization course we'll focus on developing your knowledge of the CAGED system as a visualization tool. We'll start by learning how to use octave shapes to visualize how intervals, triads, pentatonic (and blues) scales all relate to each other. We'll also delve into tools (outside of the CAGED system) that will help you connect every position of the pentatonic scale, in order to create long flowing lines and sequences similar to the likes of Eric Johnson, Joe Bonamassa, or Scott Henderson. Part 1 of this course will directly set you up for success in Part 2 where we will further discuss intervals, the 7 modes, 7th chords (with extensions), and arpeggios. We will also touch lightly on chord progressions and harmony.

For someone who's played a lot of cowboy chords, this was a great class for me to better understand the fretboard and be more comfortable with leads and solos.
Awesome course from a down to earth and well educated teacher. My knowledge of the fretboard and my improvisation have increased over the 8 weeks working with Mike. I highly recommend.
