  1. Closed position playing made easy

    Up to now I've pre-learned the solos I pick. That works OK for fiddle tunes in the jams I attend. Except for vocal tunes. You never know where the capo will land on those tunes and what key the singer will want. So there I am playing chords and shaking off a break on Banks of the Ohio, because the only key I know the solo is in G and the singer is using E.

    I have the famous FFcp book. TBH I tied it too soon and never got on with it. But I always understood it was key.
