Crossover Positions

Now that you’ve learned all the notes from the open strings to the 12th fret, it’s time to lean the crossover positions, filling the final pieces of the fretboard puzzle.

You’ve learned to play up to the 12th fret. Now take the next step and explore the rest of the neck, up to the 20th fret. This book will teach you to read the highest notes on the guitar. Discover for yourself why this part of the neck is called the virtuoso region!
