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 wanted to master the fretboard so I could improvise lines, solos and build guitar parts on the fly. 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 lesson you will ever learn'.

What exactly is PlaneTalk?
PlaneTalk Online is a 40-video course based on the lesson the original book/DVD package teaches. Covid put an end to that format as the postal system ground to a standstill. The online course teaches you a very simple visualization technique using something you learned in the first week of your guitar journey, something that, when you know how to look at it, unlocks the entire fretboard, points to everything and anything you can think of: melody, chords, harmony, scales --- everything. It also teaches the mindset and language that studio musicians use to tackle a piece of music while the clock is ticking.
Included in this course are the original book (you'll learn why it's called PlaneTalk and why it's subtitled 'The TrulyTotally Different Guitar Instruction Book') and the Guitar Slide Rule (digitized), which graphically crystallizes the mindset.
PlaneTalk has been selling to the World since 1997, when I created my first website. It has revealed to tens of thousands of players to simple 'trick' to making sense of music and the fretboard. Read the many testimonials below.

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 viewing the fretboard à l PlaneTalk to create my lines and phrases. I have the whole fretboard at my disposal at all times.
I could do this all day and night :-)
