FRETBOARD BIOLOGY represents the latest evolution in online guitar education. It is a comprehensive, fully-integrated guitar program that provides a comparable education to some of the world's top music schools. The FRETBOARD BIOLOGY curriculum was developed by Joe Elliott over 30 years of teaching literally thousands of students in college guitar programs and is an expansion of the curriculum Joe Elliott wrote for McNally Smith College of Music. Now you can get the same college-level guitar education in a self-paced program at a fraction of the cost of attending one of the big guitar schools. In Level 1, you will be introduced to the octave shape system, key signatures, rhythm, improvisation, and various chord voicings.
