Alvarez ARDA1965

Available in Standard, Slope Shoulder, Dreadnought, OM, and Parlor sizes.

St. Louis, MO (January 10, 2015) -- 2015 is a milestone year for Alvarez Guitars, one that marks a half century of refined and ever-evolving craftsmanship. As a celebration of this landmark Alvarez is unveiling a line of guitars that exemplify everything they’ve learned over the years in terms of sound and aesthetic, and releasing them at an incredible value: The Alvarez 1965 Series.

“We want every guitarist and Alvarez enthusiast to be able to join us in this 50 year celebration,” Says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “Very often commemorative guitars are so expensive that they’re out of reach to the everyday player. Our goal with the 1965s was to create a line with beautiful appointments and tone, but make them as accessible as possible.”

The 1965 Series are made with premium North American, solid Sitka tops, beautiful Acacia back and sides, and with handcrafted Paua Abalone purfling. Available in Standard and Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, OM & Parlor, in a flawless Shadowburst finish. MSRP: $749.00. MAP $499.00.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
