Sun Valley, CA (May 27, 2013) -- In light of the tragic aftermath of the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, Schecter Guitars is auctioning 11 autographed guitars in a fundraising effort on behalf of the Moore, OK community. The auctions include instruments signed by Jeff Loomis, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance and more.

The auctions were announced on the Schecter web site: "We here at Schecter Guitar send our thoughts and prayers to the people of Moore, Oklahoma. In addition to some signed instruments we have here, we have also reached out to many of our bands who are more than happy to support... and this is why they are truly family. Every penny from these auctions will go directly to charities that will do the most good for the people affected by this tragedy. Even though this won’t be ‘headline news’ much longer … we will follow through with our commitment to help."

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.
