Time for a little exercise in fretboard navigation. Learn to locate octaves on the guitar and give yourself some fresh ideas.
Octaves are a great way to add a little diversity to your guitar playing without getting all complicated. All it takes is some simple math (addition and subtraction) combined with a sprinkle of fretboard navigation.
If you have even the slightest question about octaves on the guitar, you owe it to yourself to check this out. You never know what a fresh perspective on a familiar subject will bring.
In today's video I cover 3 ways to locate octaves on the fretboard:
Single String Octaves
Adjacent String Octaves
"Rock" Octaves (octaves with string skips)
You'll want to pay close attention at the end where I talk about adding an additional fret when dealing with the 2nd and 3rd strings.
Just trust me on this. It's a long story, but it is a natural thing that happens with the standard tuning of the guitar strings.
