Fretboard Geography blowing my mind

I just started really digging in to the Fretboard Geography lessons last night. It's so exciting I had to make a video to share what I'm learning. This may mean more to me than anyone else, but hopefully it'll get someone else excited, too. :)

Sweet. I have had similar "aha" experiences on guitar and mando. They are great when they happen.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

Yeah, those "Aha" moments are awesome! One of my favorites was when I discovered the circle of 5ths is also the circle of 4ths when you go counter clockwise.

Other Ahas I'm getting today are the chord relations as I'm going up and down the neck. For example, that F# diminished Alan keeps playing uses the exact same notes as a D7. GMaj7 is the same notes as a Bm. That light just keeps getting brighter and brighter. :)
