Still trying to make sense of music and the fretboard?


Are you thinking, as I did many years ago, that there must be a trick to it all? That there must be something down there in the maze of strings and fret wires—some sort of visual constant, a simple landmark—and some kind of straightforward mindset, that can unravel the mysteries of music and the fretboard and keep your playing on track the whole length of the fingerboard at all times?


You'll be glad to hear that YES, you're right, there is!


PlaneTalk Online is a 40-video course based on the lesson the original Book/DVD/Sliderule package teaches. Covid put an end to that format as the postal system ground to a standstill. This online course teaches you the same very simple but all-powerful 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.

 Endorsed by Tommy Emmmanuel, who says:

"A fresh and new approach to helping young and old have a better understanding of music and the guitar. Well done, Kirk."

Frequently Asked Questions

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 la 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 :-)
