Watch the Moving Horizontally online guitar lesson by Christopher Woitach from Jazz Textures

Why does horizontal movement matter? In this segment, I'll explain why, and improvise using a horizontal concept to demonstrate. We'll learn how to take the voicing we created in the previous segment, and move it up and down the neck horizontally. This expands the original three note voicing we started from exponentially. When you consider that we're only dealing with one set of three adjacent strings here, the possible number of chords that can be created using all the other string sets, including the non-adjacent strings, is huge. Here's another reason for playing all the exercises in all keys, all positions, all string sets.
