In this session, you’ll become really familiar with the fretboard and get your fingers up and running so that you’re more free to express yourself.

Hosted by ace Philadelphia guitarist (and GuitarControl.com founder) Claude Johnson, the program offers insights on guitar performance and techniques from a new perspective that the guitarist calls fluency. He likens it to learning a language to the point that it is effortless and automatic by mastering vocabulary and turning it into creative, colorful phrases.
“Supercharged Soloing Made Simple” builds mastery through position shifting, three-notes-per-string riffs, rhythmic playing, tapping, hammering, and bending, as well as Johnson’s special “new sweep” and “double pivot” techniques.
“On my earlier rock guitar DVDs, I talked about playing from the heart, the brain-to-hand connection and gut level feel,” he explains. “In this session, you’ll become really familiar with the fretboard and get your fingers up and running so that you’re more free to express yourself.” An online excerpt from the DVD appears at http://www.youtube.com/guitarcontrol. Look for “Supercharged Soloing Sample.” The site also features lessons from many of GuitarControl’s teachers.
