Have you ever wondered how the great guitar players like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and others seem to pull off amazing guitar solos without breaking a sweat?
How they absolutely dominate the fretboard, shredding up and down and every direction with careless abandon…? Well, there is a simple reason for that, and I can teach you.
Hi, my name is Jonathan Boettcher, and I assure you that the pros do not think hard about every single note…
Let Me Tell You Their Secret
They work off scale patterns rather than individual notes!
If they had to think about every single note they played, you’d see smoke coming out of their ears onstage!
The truth is, once you’ve learned a guitar scale pattern, you will no longer need to think about individual notes. Your brain kicks into a whole new dimension, and things that you previously had to agonize over now become as automatic as brushing your teeth. You’ll be able to compose new riffs and solos on the spot…
A Perfect Example…
Let’s play “I Spy With My Little Eye” for a moment. I tell you that the thing I’m looking at has a door, some windows, a garage, a roof, and a chimney.
Immediately you know I’m talking about a house right?
That’s because you know what a house ‘pattern’ looks like!
I know… ‘house pattern’ sounds pretty weird. But I could have just as easily have told you only that I’m looking at a house, and you would intuitively have known that it had a door, windows, roof, etc.
That’s because you’re familiar with the overall concept of a house, so I don’t even need to talk about the facts of the house!
Now, before you think I’m totally off topic, let’s get back to the guitar…
There Are Scale Patterns All Over The Fretboard
The good news for us guitar players is that there are scale patterns all over the guitar. By mastering those patterns we can learn a whole chunk of notes all at once, rather than one at a time. In my playing, I mostly use only three main scale patterns that let me cover the entire guitar neck.
Then, I take it a step further, and use a few connecting scale patterns to make them all flow together into one seamless solo.
Are there more patterns than this? Of course. There are probably hundreds of patterns on the guitar, and I don’t know of anyone that has completely categorized every single one. But these ones that I use and teach give me full access to the guitar, with minimal memorization.
Sound complicated yet? It’s not!
Eliminate Loads Of Complicated Theory
In One Fell Swoop!
I first picked up a guitar nearly 20 years ago. However, personally I found that my guitar playing really started taking off once I began identifying the patterns that exist on the fretboard. It takes all the complicated theory right out of the equation!
Does that mean you don’t need theory? Of course not! Theory is critical to your guitar playing. But I’ve found that by relating to theory in terms of patterns, my brain is able to act on information far faster and more accurately than if I only think about the theory.
As I began to recognize the power of these guitar scale patterns, I began looking at them more closely, and to my great satisfaction, as I identified more patterns on the fretboard (and practiced them), my playing took off to a whole new level!
The Cold Hard Truth Is…
Most beginner to intermediate guitar players that I’ve met have been trained, intentionally or otherwise, to be glorified jukeboxes. Yeah, I know, that’s going to get a lot of people hot under their collars, but it’s the truth.
What do I mean by that? Simply that many guitarists have a small arsenal of guitar licks and tricks that sound really cool, but at the end of the day they don’t have any understanding of WHY those licks and tricks work, and why they sound so cool. As a result, they have trouble adapting them to different situations and styles of playing. This type of player usually knows quite a few songs, and can play them pretty well… and perhaps you find yourself in this position too… but they long for a deeper understanding of their guitar. They long to be able to get creative on their own, and come up with their own licks, riffs, and melodies!
The simple fact is, most guitar players could use a basic theory lesson or two!
It Took Me Years To Discover The
Guitar Scale Patterns That Most People Miss…
But I’d Like To Give You A Crash Course On
Mastering Your Fretboard In A Single Evening…
I’m not going to insult your intelligence by promising that after watching my lesson you’ll suddenly begin riffing-out like Eric Clapton while sleep-walking around the house in your pajamas. Or find yourself partying like a rock star after watching 20 minutes of my lessons. That would just be silly – it takes hard work to truly master your guitar. BUT – I believe that fretboard mastery is within reach of anyone with a working set of fingers and the willingness to learn.
If you can master just one of the simplest patterns that I will show you, I guarantee that you will begin to see a marked difference in your playing ability.
If you’re ready to break out of the mold, and learn how to truly play anywhere you want on the fretboard – in any key – then the lesson on guitar scale patterns that I’ve recorded was created with you in mind.
You see, knowing the power of this pattern-based approach to learning the fretboard, I decided to create a guitar lesson to share these golden nuggets of guitar goodness. This knowledge is so powerful, I really believe this can be the key that unlocks your ability to play anywhere you want on the guitar…
- You will always know where you are on the guitar… quickly sliding around the fretboard, easily adding your own licks and embellishments.
- Amaze your friends or jam buddies with how fluidly you can cover the entire guitar neck in a solo.
- You’ll be able to casually join in with any song you hear on the radio or CD, playing with ease as you find the right key and begin soloing over top.
Guitar Scale Patterns has really helped me a lot in understanding my fretboard on my 3 guitars. I have played guitar for about 30 plus years and the patterns have really helped me to understand more about guitar playing in 2 weeks that I have had your video and understanding more on guitar theory.
Thank you very much! Hope to get more lessons thru the internet that I can use in the future.
- Knowing all relevant notes on the guitar in any given key
- Knowing how to play all of those notes fluidly, in easy-to-remember patterns
- Instinctively knowing how to choose where on the neck you should solo
- Connecting scale patterns together, creating your own scales and runs
- Soloing across the whole fretboard, or even just on a single string!
It’s Like Playing Connect The Dots…
If you can play ‘Connect The Dots’ then chances are you have what it takes to be a great guitar player. 🙂
Seriously though – I’ve condensed the most essential guitar scale patterns into a handful of handy cheat sheets, all color coded so that you can see the patterns at a glance, and how they relate to the bigger picture.
These bonus cheat sheets will give you a visual representation of the fretboard. Print them off and keep them in your guitar case!
- CHEAT SHEET: Connecting scale starting from the major position
- CHEAT SHEET: Connecting scale starting from the minor position
- CHEAT SHEET: Entire fretboard in the key of A, with the main box patterns labeled
- CHEAT SHEET: Entire fretboard in the key of E, with the main box patterns labeled
You’ll Discover Patterns For:
- How to build a scale that covers the entire guitar
- 3 main scale patterns every guitar player needs to master the fretboard
- 2 connecting scale patterns
- The essential ‘chess move’ patterns for fourths, fifths, and octaves.
- Small major and minor patterns that repeat themselves over and over
What ‘Guitar Scale Patterns’ Is Not:
- It is not a complete ‘learn to play’ guitar course. It is a 122 minute lesson on guitar scale patterns.
- It does not teach chords.
- It does not teach songs.
- It does not teach you riffs or licks (though you’ll pick up a few if you watch close).
- It will not magically turn you into a ‘guitar god’ – that takes lots of practice.
Actually, I was wrong.
Old dogs can be taught new tricks, IF they are willing to admit they don’t know everything.
Having spent several hours with your material I was very pleased, and found quite a few tips which I’m sure will be helpful. In my opinion the good thing about your course is that it will help the raw beginner as well as the experienced player, especially with your emphasis on scales.
Congratulations on a job well done, and keep the special tips coming. I enjoy them.

What Would Be The SMART Thing To Do Now?
Answer #1: “I’d rather learn the interlocking scale patterns all over the guitar the s-l-o-w way – on my own – with 15 years of hard practice.” Or …
Answer #2: “I’d rather click this link and begin mastering my fretboard in a single evening.” Frankly, if your answer is “Number ONE!” please do us both a favor: Whatever you do, DO NOT order the Guitar Scale Patterns system. I fear there’s not much I or anyone else can do to help you. You enjoy the hard knocks of life and want some more…
But if your answer is, “I want to learn the easy guitar patterns that are so simple *they’re almost cheating* and catapult my guitar playing to new heights,” it’s easy: Just click this link now.
To be perfectly honest, it seems like a no-brainer to me!

This is the first and only guitar lesson I have ever purchased. Because I have a limited budget, most of my learning comes from YouTube and other sites which offer free tips. This lesson is the best so far, and it was worth every penny.
I have only been playing serious / picked up the guitar for about the last nine months. I really enjoyed and learned a lot from your lesson. I would recommend it to anyone.
