Elkton, MD (April 14, 2008) - Here''s some information on Elixir''s electric string promotion that we thought we''d pass along...

Elixir Strings, pioneer of long-life strings, is giving loyal acoustic fans a chance to plug in with electric strings. During its Electric Strings Trial promotion, players will receive one complimentary electric set with the purchase of two acoustic sets.  No coupon or mail-in rebate is necessary for taking advantage of this promotion, as the three-set multi-packs are prepackaged and available in participating stores.

“This Electric Strings Trial promotion is being offered as a means to introduce our acoustic fans to our electric strings,” explains Elixir Strings Product Manager Craig Theorin. “In doing this, our customers will be able to test drive our electric strings and experience the same level of durability as our signature acoustic products.”

Each multi-pack contains two sets of Phosphor Bronze Acoustic strings with NANOWEB® Coating in either Light or Medium gauges and one free set of Anti-Rust Electric Light with NANOWEB Coating.  This special offer is currently available while supplies last at various dealers and online retailers across North America.

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.
