Exploring the Fretboard No.100: How to create your own exercises for fretboard exploration on classical guitar from my book Exploring the Fretboard: 100 Exercises for Intermediate Guitar. PDF sheet music with notation, left hand fingering, and video lessons. This book offers students a set amount of ordered material and a variety of ways to investigate the fretboard.
