Norman, OK (May 24, 2013) -- The disaster in Moore, caused by an EF5 tornado on May 20th, has wreaked havoc on countless families. It was one of the worst storms in American history, with 24 confirmed dead, more than people 200 injured, and over 8,000 homes damaged. All of this happened only a few miles North of Walrus Audio, and since that time they have been assisting the relief effort by raising money to donate to the Red Cross in Oklahoma.

Walrus Audio has rallied together 19 other pedal manufacturers who have donated guitar pedals to a raffle. All money raised from this raffle will go directly to the Red Cross in Oklahoma. The winner of the raffle will receive a pedal board with pedals donated by the following companies: Caroline Guitar Company, Earthquaker Devices, Emerson Custom Guitars, JHS Pedals, Mr. Black, Dwarfcraft Devices, Empress Effects, Pedal Train, Mojohand FX, Barber Electronics, Dr. Scientist Sounds, SolidGoldFX, Pigtronix, Lava Cable, Strymon, Blakemore Effects, Wampler Pedals, smallsound/bigsound, Quinn Amplifiers and Effects, and Voodoo Lab.

The raffle costs $5 to enter and the winner will be drawn at random on Wednesday May 29th, 2013. Walrus Audio has designed a relief shirt with a custom graphic and the logos of all companies involved in this process. The proceeds of these relief t-shirts will also be donated to the Oklahoma Red Cross.

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.
