You're not alone! I've been playing the guitar for over 20 years,
but a few years ago I decided that I wasn't playing as well as I
wanted to. After all, when you've been doing something for over 20
years, you should have become pretty good at it, right?
So, I decided to sit down and really analyze my playing and try to
discover what was holding me back, and you know what I discovered?
I didn't really understand the fretboard!
That's right - despite over 20 years of playing, I could only
quickly find notes on the E and A strings. And as for scale knowledge
- sure, I could play the usual major, minor and pentatonic patterns in
the most common forms, but my scale knowledge didn't stretch any
further than that. Even those scales I did know, I could only play in
one or two positions which seriously limited my soloing ability. My
chord knowledge was not much better either, only stretching to the
common open chords and barre chord forms and with little ability to
find my own voicings.
When you think about it, this is really quite amazing. Imagine a
piano player who'd been playing for 20 years admitting they don't know
all of the notes on the piano keyboard. Unthinkable! Yet, due to the
way guitarists often learn their instrument this is the case for a
vast number of guitarists. All of their flash technique and cool
sounding effects are often covering up a dirty little secret - that
they don't really know their instrument as well as they should! CLICK HERE TO GET TOOLS NOW
