Mastering the Fretboard:  Making Large Steps in Solos.

One of the most dramatic runs you can make on a guitar is making a 4 octave run.

Using large intervals accomplishes quick and powerful movement in a run.

One riff that I love to pull out that really makes it sound like I am all over the fretboard is a series of 5ths and 4ths played for 4 octaves.

Often I play the notes 2 or 3 times each.
Here is an example:

The A Scale

1... 3... 1... 3... 2... 4...... 4

The numbers at the bottom of the tabs are the fingers I use to play this riff. Experiment and see if this is the fingering that works for you.

A great way to quickly learn this scale is too tap each note 2, 3 or even 4 times. Go up the scale and back down. This exercises will quickly build speed and strength and you will learn the scale pattern much quicker.
