If you are looking for a way to finally connect your fretboard once and for all - this is it! By systematically working on merging vertical positions of arpeggios and horizontal linear work via scales on a single string, you will literally open new horizons of looking at music on the guitar. 


The second installment goes further and deeper in forging the firm command of the guitar. Changing line directions at will yields the 3D understanding and full control of the fretboard. If music were a ship, with this knowledge you would be the captain steering it with ease and confidence.
