Attention: Motivated Improvising Guitarists...

"Here's How To Permanently Tattoo Guitar Scales Into Your Brain And Fingers, While Also Improving Your Technique, Speed, Improvising and Musicality!"


 From: Craig Bassett
(Professional guitarist, guitar tutor and author)


Dear fellow guitar fanatic,

Before we go any further, let me say that what I'm about to offer you is NOT right for everyone. And because I don't want to waste your time, could you please ask yourself three quick questions...
Can I improvise solos with the level of fluidity, skill and musicality that I truly want? Can I see all the scales that I want to know over the entire fretboard...without having to think? Do I currently use an organised, effective and proven system for learning scales?
If you answered "Yes" to all three questions...then you DON'T need to read any further.

Still with me? Yes? Great! Please read the rest of this page carefully. It's quite long, but it is important that you read every word. That way you'll understand exactly what you stand to gain...


Do any of the following problems sound familiar?...

  You feel overwhelmed by how many scales you need to learn. Let's face it. There are huge numbers of scales that you could learn. It is sometimes hard to even know where to start! This frustration and overwhelm can make you feel less enthusiastic about your guitar practice.

  You struggle with using scales in a musical way. Often guitar players don't make music when they solo. They just sound like they are running up-and-down scales. They have no idea how to use scales in a musical and interesting way.

  You can't visualize scales effortlessly over the ENTIRE fretboard. This can be really frustrating! It feels like you're "locked" into one part of the fretboard when you solo.

  You play scales without truly HEARING them. Often guitar players haven't totally internalized the sounds of the scales that they use. This can lead to a very unmusical and mechanical style of soloing. It can also lead to an inability to play-by-ear easily and confidently.

  You see scales as patterns NOT notes. Many guitarists make the mistake of only learning scales as patterns. Often they are not totally aware of what notes are used in the scales. Knowing the notes of a scale can really help you understand where to use the scale when you are improvising.

  You struggle with moving fluidly between different parts of the fretboard. This lack of ability to play a scale seamlessly over the entire fretboard can lead to a very rigid, disjointed and unmusical soloing style.

  You stuggle with applying scales in real-life playing situations. Guitarists often find it challenging to jam with other musicians using the scales that they have just learnt in their practice room. Often they can't adapt their scale knowledge to a new and unfamiliar situation. There just seems to be a piece of the puzzle missing.

All of the above problems are frustrating as hell! And do you know what...

Almost everyone struggles with these problems at some stage. You are not alone. :-)


Solving these problems puts you in the top 5% of guitar players...

Think about your guitar playing friends for a moment. How many of them totally dominate scales? How many can solo musically, fluidly, all over the fretboard...and make it look as if they aren't even trying? My guess would be...


Why is this? There are dozens and dozens of scale books out there. There are also MANY websites that have information on scales. Why are there so few guitar players who have actually mastered scales?

This question is worthy of some serious thought.

I believe the answer is this...


Very few scale learning methods focus on all five of the essential mastery skills that lead to complete scale mastery...

Most scale learning "methods" will give you a whole bunch of scale fingerings. Then they show you some licks. Maybe they even give you a few backing tracks. Then they leave you to it! This does not work for most people. It only works for the most talented guitar players out there. Most of us need some extra help!

So what are the five essential mastery skills? Please check out the diagram below...

Please take a couple of minutes to look at it. What do you think it means? Let's take a closer look now...

  EARS: Mastering this skill means that you have totally internalized the sound of the scale. You know exactly what each note of the scale sounds like.

  EYES: This is your ability to visualize the scale over the entire fretboard. With this ability you do not have to think in terms of scale patterns. You can see all the notes of the scale everywhere without having to think.

  FINGERS: This is your technique. It is your ability to actually physically play the scale anywhere on your fretboard. You can play the scale starting from any note, any position and any string.

  INTELLECT: This is your theoretical understanding of the scale. At the very least you should understand three main things.
What notes are in the scale. What scale degrees are in the scale. Where the scale can be used.
  APPLICATIONS: This is your ability to actually use the scale in a musical way.

So what does all this mean?

If you are lacking in even one area…you don't really know the scale fully. It has not yet been internalized. This means that improvising using the scale in a musical way is challenging, (if not impossible)!


And the scary thing is...

Very few scale learning methods out there help you learn the five essential mastery skills in an organised and structured way! They make it way too hard and frustrating for you...
They overwhelm you with ridiculous amounts of scale fingerings to learn. They tell you to memorize the scale fingerings but don't actually show you how. They tell you to learn things in all 12 keys. (This advice is often B.S. and quickly leads to overwhelm for most people). They get you to move onto new scales well before you have mastered the old ones. They tell you "what to learn", but don't actually tell you "how to learn" it.
You get the idea. They are throwing "learning hurdles" in your way which slows down your progress. That really sucks!


Which is why I created the Guitar Scale Mastery membership site...

IMPORTANT:  It's not my intention to "hard-sell" you here. Frankly, it's not my style. I know that Guitar Scale Mastery will really help a lot of people. But I also know...it won't be for everyone. Not everyone will want it or need it. :-)

Instead, I'll just give you some detail about what you'll get when you join. That way you can decide whether or not it's for you. Fair enough?




So here's exactly what you get when you join Guitar Scale Mastery...


Massive Member Benefit #1: The Guitar Scale Mastery System

In this section of the website you'll learn the EXACT system that I use to learn and internalize scales. Whenever I want to learn a new scale I follow this system. Once you learn the system you'll be able to apply it to ANY scale that you want to master.

A few of the overall benefits of learning The Guitar Scale Mastery System include...

  You will be able to learn scales on such a deep level that they "become part of you".

  You will be able to use scales without thinking.

   You will be able to improvise with scales no matter where you are on the fretboard.

  You'll feel much more confident as an improvising guitarist.

  You'll notice large improvements to your guitar technique, speed and fluidity.

  You'll solo in a more natural and musical way.

  You'll feel more confident jamming with other musicians.

This system is comprised of five main parts. I call these parts "scale weapons". Why weapons? Because it sounds cool! :-)


Scale Weapon 1: Single String Scales...

If someone held a gun to your head and said that you could only choose ONE method of learning scales, then this should be it! This is by far the most powerful way to learn scales. It's also a really neglected method.

You'll learn a whole heap just from this section alone! :-)

You'll learn a very specific 6 step memorization process. This allows you to deeply imprint into your brain both the note names and scale degrees of ANY scale...over the entire fretboard. Imagine what this one technique will do for your overall scale knowledge. You'll understand scales better, which means you'll be able to solo in a much more musical way.

You'll learn the exact foundational technique exercises that I use myself. These exercises help you to visualize the intervals within the scale. This leads to you developing an even deeper understanding of the scales that you learn. These exercises also improve your ability to shift positions fluently. They also really help you to improve the synchronization between your left and right hands.

Result? You'll improvise more fluently, and your speed and technique improves.

You'll learn about 42 different cool sounding melodic patterns. Most really advanced improvisers will tell you that being able to internalize melodic motifs is an invaluable skill. In fact...it's next to impossible to improvise in a musical way without this skill. By learning about these melodic patterns YOU become one of the few guitarists that actually make music when they solo.

You'll learn to create your own unique single string exercises. This is super important. Why? It helps you to develop your own style of soloing!

You'll learn how to combine melodic patterns. This allows you to create more interest in your solos. It also allows you to make dramatic improvements to your speed and overall technique. And finally, it improves your ability to memorize licks and solos.

You'll learn the 12 "super exercises" that I use when learning scales. These allow you to internalize the sound of 8 great sounding melodic patterns. They also improve your finger independence, speed, position shifting ability and the synchronization between your left and right hands. All of these things help you to improvise in a more fluent, confident and creative way.


 Scale Weapon 2: Two String Scales...

This approach to learning scales is awesome. It combines some of the benefits of single string scales with some of the benefits of the more conventional scale patterns. Any scale learning method that doesn't cover this approach is robbing you of some valuable learning and progress!

Here's some of the things that you'll learn from this section...

 You'll learn about Visual Patterns. These are very powerful visual tools that enable you to solo in different keys much more easily. This is a big part of the secret to soloing in all 12 keys.

You'll learn the exact 6 step method I use to master Visual Patterns. There's no point being aware of Visual Patterns if you can't actually use them! In this section you'll drill the Visual Patterns into your brain, allowing you to solo in a very free way.

You'll discover 20 powerful two string exercises. These help improve your alternate picking, hammer-ons, pull-offs and overall technique. They also really improve your ability to solo anywhere on the fretboard.


Scale Weapon 3: Three-Note-Per-String Scales...

This is an approach used by many guitarists. It is one of the best approaches for anyone interested in speed and fluidity. It allows you to learn almost any scale over the entire fretboard. It's also an approach that can be used for all styles of music. I've personally used it for styles ranging from speed metal to traditional jazz. :-)

Here are a few of the things that you'll learn...

You will learn how to create your own three-note-per-string fingerings. This will give you the confidence to construct fingerings for almost any scale.

You will learn the detailed 4 step method for memorizing any scale fingering. Isn't it frightening how many scale learning methods give you scale fingerings, but don't tell you the best way to memorize them? This does NOT help you one bit. :-) In this lesson, I tell you in great detail about how to easily and permanently imprint any fingering into your brain.

Imagine how this will help you learn scales faster!

You will learn 8 foundational exercises using the 3-note-per-string approach. These are designed to quickly program scale fingerings into your muscle memory. They also help you to improve your alternate picking, pull-offs and hammer-ons.

You will learn 8 very powerful triad arpeggio exercises. Guitarists often struggle to combine arpeggios and scales together in a musical way. These 8 exercises help you visualize diatonic triad arpeggios within scale fingerings. This really helps you learn to integrate arpeggios into your playing...which will make your soloing sound more interesting and melodic.

You will learn 8 specific 7th arpeggio exercises. Anyone wanting to solo in a jazz or fusion style needs to learn these exercises. :-) They help you program cool sounding arpeggios into your fingers. They will also help your picking and fret hand technique tremendously!

You will learn my 8 most favorite intervallic exercises. They sound great and really help you improve your technique...especially your string skipping!

You will learn how to apply melodic patterns to different fingerings. This helps you to adapt the ideas you learn to any fingering. What does this do? It helps improve your technique, scale knowledge and your ability to improvise.


Scale Weapon 4: Ear Training...

Many guitarists sound like they are just running up-and-down scales when they improvise. Their solos can sound boring, rigid and unmusical. They just don't make music when they solo.

So what's the solution? Easy...

Ear Training!!!

It is the master key that unlocks musicality. Seriously. When you do Ear Training everything about your improvising improves. Why is that? Music is sound. Music is a hearing art! Doesn't it make sense that as your ability to hear improves, everything improves with it?

Over the years, I've studied many different approaches to Ear Training. Some worked...some were frustrating and boring...

From this intensive study I've developed some of my own unique methods that really work. What you get with this section of the website are the "cliff notes". You learn only the most effective, powerful and practical approaches to Ear Training scales.

Let's take a look at what you'll learn...

You'll learn the 4 step process of effective Ear Training. Using these 4 steps means you'll learn the sound of scales faster and more easily.

You'll learn 4 foundation exercises. These simple exercises quickly imprint the sound of any scale into your brain.

You'll learn exactly what to do if you can't sing a note at all. Many Ear Training methods skip this vital step.

You'll learn 8 pivot exercises. Don't know exactly what every note of a particular scale sounds like? These exercises solve that problem!

You'll learn to sight sing 32 different melodies...all without having to read music! By the time you finish this step, the sound of a scale will be tattooed in your brain for life. Just imagine how this could help your soloing.

You'll learn two powerful reinforcement exercises. These help you learn the sound of a scale on an even deeper level.


Scale Weapon 5: Applications...

This is the fifth component of The Guitar Scale Mastery System. This section ensures that you actually gain experience using the scales that you learn. This is vital! What's the point of learning scales if you don't use them in a musical setting?

You'll look at three very powerful ways to internalize scales and learn to use them in a musical way...

  Focused Lick Creation

  Focused Improvisation


If you are not using these, then your progress is definitely not as fast as it could be.

IMPORTANT: I've deliberately not gone into too much detail here. I don't want my competitors to learn these three practice strategies. Yeah, I know they can just join...but I really don't want to make it too easy for them! ;-)

Massive Member Benefit #2: Guitar Scale Activators...

Guitar Scale Activators are special backing tracks. They are designed to bring to life (activate) the sound of any scale that you are practicing. This is very powerful. Some of the benefits of using the Guitar Scale Activators include...

You'll eventually program chord/scale relationships into your brain. This means that when you hear a chord you'll be able to automatically hear the scale that works over that chord. Obviously, this is a useful skill for any improvising guitarist!

You'll enjoy practicing scales more. Scale exercises and licks sound much more interesting when played over the correct Guitar Scale Activator.

You'll learn to internalize the sounds of scales much faster. This will help you to improvise more confidently in a much more musical way.

You'll imprint the sound of chords into your brain. This is done on a subconscious level. As you practice your brain will be absorbing the sound of the chord used on the Guitar Scale Activator.


Massive Member Benefit #3: Bonus Updates...

The biggest advantage of a membership site over books, DVDs and home study courses is flexibility. New content and lessons can be added relatively easily. I really want Guitar Scale Mastery to be a website that improves, grows and evolves over time. To be blunt…I intend this site to totally kick the ass of any other scale related website. :-)

 As a member you'll gain access to all of the future Bonus Updates that are created during your membership period. All at no extra cost to you.


WARNING: Please do NOT read this if you are easily offended... 
I know that I WILL offend some people and lose some sales by what I'm about to say. And I really don't care. I just feel it needs to be said. So here it is...

Do not join Guitar Scale Mastery if you are a lazy bum who dreams of becoming a guitar god with virtually no practice. Keep your money...I don't want it. I'm totally serious about this.

If you have the work ethic of a crack-addicted sun-dried tomato, please go to the other websites that promise you that you'll be playing like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Allan Holdsworth or Yngwie Malmsteen in just 20 minutes a day. Or maybe you could just buy one of those ab machines that promise you washboard abs in just 30 seconds a day. Give me a freakin' break...

Gaining a mastery of scales takes some time and some effort. If you aren't willing to invest some time and effort, then joining won't help you. I'm sorry if that sounds really harsh, but I believe in being brutally honest...

Guitar Scale Mastery is suitable for you if you have the following qualities...

  You have the intelligence to realize that mastering scales will take time and effort.

  You enjoy practicing the guitar.

  You would like to improve your improvising greatly.

  You are willing to keep an open mind and try new things.

  You are an intermediate level guitarist who would love to become an advanced/pro level guitarist.

If you have these five qualities then you are exactly the sort I person that I want to help. You are the sort of person that Guitar Scale Mastery was created for...


Grab 3 years access to this valuable information now...

 Because this product has recently launched, I want to give you a really great deal. :-)

I am offering you a 3 year Premium Membership to Guitar Scale Mastery for  the one-time small investment of: $67 (US Dollars). (IMPORTANT: If you live in one of the European Community (EC) countries, then VAT will be added to this. Please read [FAQ](faqs.html) for details).

For this small amount you gain immediate access to:

The Guitar Scale Mastery System.
The Guitar Scale Activators.
All the Bonus Updates that are created during the next three years.
This small investment of $67 works out to only $1.87 per month. Try getting lessons from a professional guitar tutor for that! In fact, $67 wouldn't even cover the cost of a one hour guitar lesson with me.

As well as all the valuable information you'll gain and the money you'll save, you'll also save yourself a LOT of time...

  You'll save yourself wasting valuable time trying to learn scales by trial-and-error. This is by far the slowest and most frustrating way to learn them. It's also the way that most people try to learn guitar scales.

  You'll save yourself time by being able to tap into my knowledge and experience. You'll have the opportunity to ask me questions. You'll also be able to make suggestions for future lessons that I create.

  You'll save yourself countless hours searching the internet for reliable, organised and trustworthy lessons on guitar scales. A lot of these free lessons haven't even been written by professional guitar tutors!

  You'll save yourself many long hours having to ask questions at guitar forums...only to find out the advice given was about as useful as a one-legged sheep.

FAIR WARNING: As I add more and more Bonus Updates to the member only area, I will eventually have to increase the price to $97. At this stage, I'm not exactly sure when this price increase will happen. But if you come back to this web page and find the low price is no longer available, then you will be out of luck.

And no...this isn't some lame B.S. "marketing gimmick". (I'm sure you've come across those before!). If you were involved in the launch of this website, you know that I DO increase the price when I say I am going to...


Act now and I'll also throw in the following e-book as a bonus...


Special Bonus: Pentatonic Guitar Success

This 246 page e-book took me six months to write! It is designed for the ambitious guitarist who is serious about developing awesome pentatonic scale technique. In my opinion it is worth more than the actual cost of membership to Guitar Scale Mastery.

Here's some of the things that you'll learn from it...

  You'll learn some essential music theory. This will help you to become a better musician. Plus you'll feel great knowing the stuff that a lot of guitarists put in the "too hard" basket.

  You'll learn 84 melodic ideas in five different fingerings. This will increase your soloing vocabulary dramatically. It will also help you gain a total mastery of each of the five fingerings. Which means you'll be able to solo with lots more confidence using pentatonics.

  You'll learn 48 single string linear exercises. This will help you learn to move between the different pentatonic fingerings effortlessly.

  You'll learn 216 two string linear exercises. These will turn you into a pentatonic beast! Your fret hand and picking technique will improve a lot. Plus they look really cool when you play them. :-)

  Plus a whole lot more!
