    In this class we will methodically explore diads up and down the neck of the guitar in order to gain a deeper understanding of the fingerboard and music theory overall. Never heard of a diad? Not to worry! In this class we will learn how these two note intervals, usually played over two adjacent strings can be useful in improvisation, composition and general music knowledge. Using the G major scale, we will start by playing major/minor 2nd intervals on each set of two strings, up and down the neck, and working our way through 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, 6ths, and 7ths. Then we will delve into the exciting new sounds and possibilities these diads can open up, and talk about the music theory that these intervals lay out for us.
