Learning Long Guitar Lines

This lesson explores composing long guitar melodies. We branch out of the box patterns and into expanded coverage of the neck. A focus is placed on how "Along the Neck," scales will allow us to make longer guitar melodies and more lengthy guitar runs. The examples focus on increasing the span across multiple scale patterns, crossing several fingerboard positions.
