Wasn't able to do the download for some reason..But I tell this to anybody that ask me about becoming a better lead player..
Take a poster board or just plain sheet of paper..draw Six horizontal lines that represent your strings..and draw about 12 vertical lines thru them..this will be the frets..next label each horizontal line like this:
you will want to do all the strings not just like low E only here..
01 3 5 78 10 12ect...<--fret number that Cscale on low E string fall on..
"0" represents you're open strings..next in the 12 spaces write out on each string....the note names of each fret..but let's not do all 12 notes let's simplify it and only do the C major scale notes..like C,D,E,F,G,A,B only these notes for now..write them in the 12 spaces on each string..
number the space's..1 to 12..F note at the first fret on the low and high E strings..if you don't know you're note names or where they are located find out!! Great players don't know this sometimes..but I feel hey get out of the stoneage..it's just lazy to not know at least this much..
but anywayz when you do this..it will create about 5 to 6 different finger patterns..commit these to memory this would be the same as playing only the white keys on piano...
This one will work for the key of C major/A minor..run them as scales at first up and down the ladder till you got that down then..mix em up so that they don't sound like scales by applying different patterns and sequences..doesn't matter the style of music from blues,to country,metal to classic rock..these are you're diatonic scales and they are the correct notes to play..
if the song is in Say E..we move all of the patterns or box shapes down..
hit me up if you want further detail..
