Hello fellow Fretboard Travellers!

Welcome to Fretboard Travellers uk. On this site I intend to blog to you anything interesting about Guitar techniques. i am going to start with my interpretations of the CAGED System and show you how it can be applied. My approach is quite a lot different from the teachings of others that I have studied which I feel sometimes they tends to over complicate matters.

Other areas of Guitar Studies I intend to blog about are studying the techniques of famous guitarists and review their equipment. I will be giving tips about how to study the guitar and the best equipment or set ups for beginners. Sometimes it can be intimidating hearing the noise blasting out of an amplifier when you don’t know how to handle the sound. at first it seems unfamiliar and you may get conscious that others are hearing only your mistakes. This can be off-putting but there are ways to control this. During this we may touch upon guitar tone in general and how to achieve specific sort after tones in guitar playing without having to re-mortgage your house to get them.

This site is a work in progress and I will be adding various articles from time to time. Nothing is pre made so it will take some time to build up these articles. Be patient. Subscribe if you want to keep up with what is happening.
