Breedlove Introduces the Solo Series

This series is available in a concert, dreadnought, 12-string model, and bass option.

Bend, OR (May 14, 2014) -- If you’ve ever tried to write a song in a noisy room or on a rambunctious tour bus, you know how hard it can be to really hear your own guitar. Ideal for singer-songwriters, the Solo Series models have a side sound hole monitor to allow you to hear your music as if you were standing in front of the instrument. It’s a pretty amazing innovation, since the Solo models offer the same volume and distinctively crafted sound you’d expect from a Breedlove – the sound hole doesn’t diminish the power or tone of the instrument, it simply allows you to hear every nuance of your performance as your audience hears it.

With a price point of $1,065 MSRP and $799 MAP, this series is available in a concert, dreadnought, 12-string model, and bass option.

• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.

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.
