Years ago I learned all the notes on the fret board. I learned many chords. Then Last Friday, three days ago, I got my new Fretlight. For the first time in my life I am soloing along with Guitar Pro6 and in a very short time after loading the software. Scales are awesome and fast to learn. In five minutes I was playing the melody (vocal) via the scale directory. If this is cheating, cheating could not be more fun and or easy. Transferring the information from paper to guitar was such a time waster. Hotel California is really fun if done with a little funk. Blisters on my fingers never felt better!
