Guitar Improv Foundations
Exercises for improving fluency on guitar
What is this book?
This book started as a personal collection of exercises to get better at improvising on guitar, but it turned into a compact system that could help other guitarists as well. So I cleaned up what exercises I had, and decided to share this with others.
I've laid out exercises for improving guitar fluency, which help the reader to memorize patterns on the fingerboard. These patterns all build on each other, and are especially effective when combined with music theory knowledge.
I hope you learn something cool here, because I learned a lot by making it.
