Watch the Targeting Root online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Riff Generator

This lesson focuses on targeting the root of the A minor pentatonic scale all over the entire fingerboard. The root is the strongest tone and therefore is very useful as a close for melodic lines. I will demonstrate by playing over the jam tracks string by string, and then integrate the entire fingerboard by utilizing all six strings. Your goal is not only to visualize this information on the fingerboard, but to hear it.

I'll also give you a preview of the concept of lower neighbors to a target note. This will be covered in depth in lessons 11 and 12.

All the techniques you've learned in lessons one through five will be applied to this lesson as you target the root.

Each lesson in this course is accompanied with specific color-coded diagrams to aid you in visualizing the information on the fingerboard.
