About the Fretboard Workouts

Recommended Posts

Steve’s Fretboard Workouts are available from his Mighty Oak Music site here.

They are all high quality instructional videos that come with documentation in PDF format where appropriate. Steve says: “Speed & Agility can be started once you have a bit of facility on the instrument — around [Learn & Master Guitar course] Session 4 [open position notes] or so. You won't be able to keep up with me but it will start to build your coordination in helpful ways.
 
Major Scale Mastery can be started around Session 7-8 [barre chords] when we start covering scales.
 
Jazz Chords can be used anytime after Session 10 [fingerstyle] or so, but it will be particularly helpful in the jazz session.”

Before he produced these major scales workouts, Steve made a series of video "Power Workouts". They are no longer available, but one of these covered major scales, and was clearly his outline for the new workouts. The PDF is attached as a kind of free preview.

Just started the fretboard workout and I love it.  Challenging for me but it has improved my overall playing.

I've been curious about the major scale mastery workout.  I'm not clear on how it teaches the major scale.  Does it show how to practice the major scale in ways other than up & down?  If so, I'd be very excited to check them out.

@Jusca Watch the last live lesson, starting at the 30:00 minute mark, and it should answer your question. Here’s the LINK.

Which live lesson video are you referring you, @Jusca? The link unfortunately no longer works. I hope that it has been uploaded to the Guitar Gathering YouTube page.

Thanks for the information, Diane! I purchased the Fretboard Workout bundle in today's Flash sale. Five courses at a very good price!

I am currently working on L&M session 4, and have been for about three weeks now, I suppose. I predict that I'm going to be spending the next three in this session as well. ?

I'll take the Speed and Agility course for a spin soon. From what Steve had to say about it, I expect to be challenged. It will offer a break from the monotony of the exercises in L&M session four. I'm not saying that session 4 is boring, but... ah, you probably know what I mean. ?

I didn't post that link.  Someone referred it to me so unfortunately I couldn't tell you the exact video lesson it is.  The lesson should be easy to find though.  I think it was around November  2017- early Jan 2018 live lesson.
