Watch the Try Playing with Higher Voicings online guitar lesson by Christie Leneé from Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters

Knowing where your octaves are on the guitar neck is an indispensable skill for improvisation and for finding chord voicings for your songs. I recommend you take the time to find them, practice them, and you'll find you open up a lot of new territory on the neck especially up in the higher register. This is a really cool approach which can be really useful especially when you're playing with a bass guitarist or even another guitarist.
