Chicago, IL (April 25 2008) -- Washburn Guitars announces the release of two new Dan Donegan signature series model guitars for 2008. As lead guitarist for the multi-platinum selling Disturbed, Donegan has influenced the sound of modern rock in the new millennium. In addition to his current Washburn signature guitars, the DD60 and DD91 Maya, Washburn has added the WI91 and WI63SF. Both new models are based on the classic Idol shape.



The WI91 is crafted in the Washburn USA Custom shop with Donegan’s signature Chopper Top flame graphics based on his custom built motorcycle. It features a mahogany body, ebony fretboard and flame abalone inlay, with Sperzel tuners, Seymour Duncan pickups, a Tune-O-Matic bridge and Tone Pros tailpiece. The WI91 retails for $5,399.90. (Includes hard shell case.)




The WI63SF features Chopper Top graphics on a mahogany body and neck with a rosewood fingerboard, and debuts Randall’s new UL neck & Ultra XL bridge pickups. Also included are exclusive Grover 18:1 tuners and a unique flame logo on the headstock. The WI63SF retails for $899.90. (Includes gig bag.)

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.
