Wall-Axe Guitar Hangers Announces the Soloist

The Soloist uses its triangular shape to securely hold a guitar plus the most common accessories.

Des Moines, IA (August 5, 2014) -- Wall-Axe Custom Guitar Hangers announces their latest innovation in guitar accessories, the Soloist: All-In-One Guitar & Accessory Hanger, a single-hanger solution inspired by their flagship decorative multi-guitar hangers.

The Soloist uses its well-configured triangular shape to securely hold one guitar, plus the guitarist’s most common accessories, including: shoulder guitar straps, clip-on tuners, capos, picks, thumb picks, finger slides, and instrument cable. All Soloists are made in the USA from beautiful solid oak and fitted with premium hangers. Never before has a single guitar wall hanger incorporated so much added function for the user. The Soloist is truly inspired by the family-owned Wall-Axe company slogan: “The Beauty of Art & Function”.

A few of the most notable features on the Soloist are the four accessory knobs that border the hanger’s base. By personal preference, the user can securely fasten up to three guitar straps on a single knob, and up to 15 guitar picks can be organized by thickness in the three allotted slots for easy accessibility. “We are in the business of solving problems for guitarists...” said Wall-Axe designer, Vance Lambert. "And we resolved the issue of losing our favorite guitar picks and trying to remembering which guitar case we last placed our capos & tuners in!”

The Soloist is a derivative of the company’s flagship product, Wall-Axe Custom Guitar Hangers. These are decorative multi-guitar hangers that come in 40+ body shape & color combinations. The popular LX-Series hosts a variety of stylish laminated wood grains and color variations, while the CS-Series are made from solid Red Oak for those desiring a more rich & natural vibe in their music room. All of these products are available online, directly from the manufacturer.

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.
