The Cycle for Fretboard Fitness – #2 of 5

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.
One comment on YouTube said:

  “A truly ingenious practice idea! Much appreciated! Great lesson!” Thank you for your comment, Richard Palmer!
  And another comment suggested to also add the minor triad right after. Great idea to add that if you know your relative minor keys!

  1. Thank you, Ari! I’m learning to solo, and also want to provide stronger/more interesting bass lines for songs/tunes, so I am grateful for your tutorials!! I have bass homework to do tonight : )
