AP International Releases the Lok-N-Rol Compensated Nut

Improve pitch and compensation while putting equal pressure on each sting by using this drop-in replacement.

Wall Township, New Jersey (January 4, 2016) -- The new Lok-N-Roll improves your guitar by providing proper pitch and compensation across the fretboard. The need to apply different string pressure on each string due to inherent sharp or flat notes is no longer an issue. Equal pressure on each string is provided across the fingerboard. These features allow the Lok-N-Roll to assist with wrist, arm, and finger discomfort. As the player, you will notice an improved difference in chords, scales, alternate tunings, string skipping, sweeping, tapping, harmonics, dive bombs, and other tremolo tricks. The nut is a direct drop-in replacement for most similar style locking nuts, making it extremely easy to retrofit. As the Lok-N-Roll does not need to be clamped to be compensated, it can also be used as a standard nut without the locking feature. The Lok-N-Roll will be distributed by AP International, parent company of Floyd Rose Marketing. Find this product at Winter NAMM.

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.
