If you really want to get out of the box, don’t learn from a guitarist.
I’ve been playing for my entire life. Learning different approaches from a woodwind players as a whole is the best way to really open up the fingerboard applying what you think you know to a whole other level. This exercise gets you there FAST!

Really good material and excellent videos!

Just the right length to not be overwhelming--this material is so dense, it will take me years to incorporate this stuff in my playing. I will probably get the triad pairs packet soon.
