The Cycle for Fretboard Fitness
In this segment I am exploring why the Cycle of Fifths is such a fantastic practice tool for fretboard fitness – mainly because it gets us through all keys in the most elegant of ways (and it shows up like that in many songs!). Check it out, there are more ways than one to do this to really challenge your fretboard fitness. Talking of fretboard fitness, great chops builder, too. Enjoy. Let me know what results you are getting.
