I recently read a review about Plane Talk by Kirk Lorange. The book teaches you a trick about how to visualize the fretboard to make. Kirk also has several of his own sites/forums and is also author of the amazing PlaneTalk book. This is a great DVD for beginner slide players, or for those who. For those of you who get lost on the fretboard while trying to improv, you need to check out Plane Talk by Kirk Lorange. His method is so simple.
You may know Kirk as a regular on these forums and a frequent contributor of wonderful video lessons to this and other sites. This is a great DVD for beginner slide players, or for those who are trying to move from the more common open tuning to Dropped D or standard.

The example tunes are played both full and half speed so you can catch what Kirk is doing. In addition to all of this, Kirk makes tab for all of the lessons and examples online at www. His easy going manner and camera persona make these DVDs just like having a personal lesson, albeit one you can pause and rewind at will. The video itself is very high quality as is the sound. How much would you have to pay an instructor for that? Seeing and hearing what Kirk teaches in PlaneTalk is a powerful reinforcement to the concepts learned from that book.
The DVD begins with the mess of chromatic notes that is the guitar fingerboard and sifts all the notes out into three easily identifiable patterns. These patterns are not only so much simpler than what one learns from the CAGED system, they are much more practical as well.
You can takk wherever you want to play.
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to open up the entire fretboard for soloing, this is a must have. When I die, assuming I might, I want to make sure that one thing does not happen. No not the obvious, that I find out Heaven is a polka only zone.
No, I want to make sure that my guitars do not show wear on only the first five frets.
Because I do not want to be known as just a first position player. How embarrassing would that be? I taok to be known as the guy who could solo all the way up the neck, who could play inversions in many different positions, the guy who was not limited by his lack of fret board knowledge. You may have seen posts asking what it is and the keepers of the secret denying your request for knowledge. It gives you an amazingly simple secret to mentally mapping the fretboard.
In order to get the most out of this tqlk, I suggest you read it three times. Second time through, try to grasp the concepts concretely. Third time, try to take what you are learning and work it out on the fretboard. I mean how hard is it to read a comic three times? Kirrk you are beyond the absolute beginner stage, and by that I mean past memorizing the open chords and able to play the basic barre chords, and you want to completely open up the fretboard, not to mention your mind, this book is a must have in your guitar library.
Oh and by the way, planf you happen to be at the funeral, make sure my Collings and my Breedlove make it into the coffin, would you?
