How to Unlock the Fretboard Using Shapes

If you’re looking for ways to increase your understanding of the fretboard, a good place to start is by looking at the shapes your fingers create as you play scales and chords.

If you’re looking for ways to increase your understanding of the fretboard, a good place to start is by looking at the shapes your fingers create as you play scales and chords.

In this video, Sean Daniel explores the fretboard using a riff that uses one scale and two chords. The riff covers quite a bit of fretboard real estate and demonstrates how you can use shapes to visualize the fretboard and, in the process, come away with a deeper understanding of it.

“We’re gonna unlock the guitar fretboard using one piece of a scale and two chord shapes,” Sean says. “All it takes is a minor arpeggio and a seventh chord voiced high and low, and you’re on your way to fretboard dominance!”
