"Another EXCELLENT course. I completed previous course and this one is just as good if not better. Best tuition I have ever had. Thank you, Eric. Just finished this course and it is EXCELLENT. I obviously will need to go back over several bits, but it has been so useful. Thanks again." - KEITH, UDEMY STUDENT, WEBISODES 5&6
"I like the modesty and teaching speed of the instructor." - SHOOTER, UDEMY STUDENT, WEBISODES 1&2
"This is without doubt, the BEST course I have ever done. BRILLIANT, Eric. Thank you so much. I have already purchased some of the next courses and there is so much to learn. Worth EVERY penny (or dollar in the U.S.)." - KEITH, UDEMY STUDENT, WEBISODES 3&4
In Webisodes 5 & 6 (Open String Transitions and Major Scales) of my Bluegrass Guitar Essentials series, you’ll learn about how to traverse the fretboard with ease via the use of Open String Transitions in what I refer to as the "Three Essential Keys" (G, C, & D).
You’ll also learn the Major and Major Pentatonic scales in these keys, which will help you develop a better understanding of things like:
How to apply scales to your playing
How to use scales to broaden the scope of your improvising
How using scales can help you better navigate the fretboard
The difference between Major and Major Pentatonic scales and the advantages of each
Lastly, I'll show you one of the most important techniques for playing faster runs and licks—which nobody ever talks about—Short Scales!
You're sure to improve your understanding of how to apply the Major and Major Pentatonic scales and their Short Scale variations by the time you've thoroughly practiced and applied all the techniques I show you in this course.
I know how frustrating it is to comprehend how to use scales, but in these lectures, I cover and explain them extensively so you won’t be left behind when jamming with others during festivals or friendly jam sessions.

"Absolutely BRILLIANT. This is opening up a whole new world on how to move up the fretboard." - KEITH, UDEMY STUDENT, WEBISODES 13, 14, & 15
