Are you still trying to make sense of music and the fretboard?
We humans love patterns. That's how we think. But trying to come up with a fretboard pattern from an asymmetric system called 'music' and the asymmetry of standard tuning, trying to find some kind of useful 'constant' down there in the maze of strings and frets, sharps and flats, majors and minors, flat fifths and ninths and all the rest of it ... is no small feat. I spent a good fifteen years trying to find one. I knew there had to be something, so I kept plugging away. And then—Eureka!—one day, long before the Internet, long before I'd hear the term 'CAGED', I found something that did the job, something so simple I wondered why it took me so long to spot it. And the more I looked into it, the more powerful it became. That was thirty-five-plus years ago and it's all I've ever really kept track of since then.
This online course will teach you what I stumbled onto that day. I call it 'The easiest yet most powerful guitar you will ever learn'.

What exactly is PlaneTalk?
The original 'PlaneTalk Package' was a book, DVD and 'slide rule' package. The book—a comic-strip conversation on a long flight between a pro and an amateur—explained the mindset. The DVD demonstrated it and the slide rule, a folded-sleeve-with-insert affair, crystallized it. All those elements are here, digitized, along with a new batch of videos—40 of them—all designed to show you in no uncertain terms just how powerful this way of thinking can be. You will be left with no doubt as to what this visualization technique is and all that will be left to do is play, knowing what you're playing and why it's working.

Does your course teach any playing techniques?
Here is an example of some melodic improvisation over a blues backing track. It's an old video but it's a good one to demonstrate the mindset. I'm not thinking scales at all, I'm simply following the chords and using their tones to outline my phrases. I have the whole fretboard at my disposal at all times. I could do this all day and night :-)
