This book is filled with pentatonic scales, scale formulas that, as the reader will soon discover, act as an incredible continuation of Ultra Guitar Method™. Notice, we said “continuation” of the method.
It is not suggested that the reader attempt to study out of sequence. Why? We really want you to succeed. Remember, Ultra Guitar Method™ has a definite beginning, middle and ending. It is a complete educational guitar method. There are references that lead the reader to previous volumes (pre-planned concepts) for application of new principles. Further, there are mechanical exercises in each volume which prepare the reader for subsequent volumes. Strength and endurance is very, very important.
THE POWER OF PENTATONICS AND SUBSTITUTION PRINCIPLES will prepare and allow the reader to develop the ability to project a wider sound (scales and chord progressions). Pentatonic scales, when combined with diatonic scales can produce an extraordinary sound. Audiences appreciate movement and color in music. By studying volume three (after mastering volumes one and two), your musical presentation will be rich in color, depth and musicianship.
Volume three reveals and teaches substitution principles for scales, chords, inversions and much, much more. Further, the reader will learn specific chords that are unique to pentatonic approaches to music. This, along with your previous study of volumes one and two, will have your listeners cheering you on.
All of the principles contained in volume three are, as always, applicable to the entire guitar fingerboard (scales, chords, substitution principles, inversions, etc.) and applicable to all key signatures.
It is strongly recommended that the reader study volumes one (UNLOCKING THE FINGERBOARD) and two (PROGRESSIONS) before studying volume three.
