Bullhead Amps Paragon

Nashville's own Bullhead Amplification brought out the Paragon, a Class A/B amp that can move from 40 watts down to 20. The interesting thing about this amp is that the clean channel is voiced to also handle acoustic instruments. The high-gain channel has a 3-band EQ, while the clean/acoustic side has a single tone knob. Bonus: Each channel has its own 12AX7 preamp tube.

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.
