This wonderful project focuses on the use of chord shapes (mainly triads) in building a single line solo. It also opens up some of the mystery of the fretboard by showing exactly how the fretboard relates to diatonic harmony without using single note scales. Not only will new lines appear easier, but new and usable chord voicings will also appear. These chords will be related to the lines being played. It also will help move away from position playing and open up the neck, removing any black holes. There is also a look at phrasing and how rhythmic understanding is important to the improving harmonic and melodic development. Companion CD included.
