Guitar Master, you won't just play scales. You
will modulate through all the major keys by use of the dominant-seventh
arpeggio--the fundamental shift you hear in every song from rock
to country to classical to jazz. Key shifts by way of modulation
are a fundamental element in music composition and solo performance.
guitar, however, presents a very unique challenge because a scale
can be performed in a variety of ways using different positions
and fingerings. The guitarist who is unfamiliar with multiple methods
for moving through the scales and across the entire length of the
guitar is at an extreme disadvantage, both mechanically and creatively.
Scales and arpeggios are the secrets of great guitar playing and
soloing. Few people--even some other guitarists--will recognize
when you are practicing scales with the Guitar Master system because
many of them sound like songs.
