For those out there who are like me and still piecing together the fretboard, I thought I'd pass on a couple sources that I find really accessible.

First, I happened across this link that I think does a great job of shedding light on the Circle of Fifths, which seemed so mystifying to me before, plus providing a great memory phrase that helps in all sorts of ways, including remembering sharps and flats in various keys. The author's description ties it well to the fret board. Now maybe I'll tackle that Circle of Fifths tome that Steve referred to on his site! here's the link:

Second, I've checked out a lot of stuff on scales, videos, etc., and the most usable I've seen is prepared by David Poole, who teaches at AIM. He has a small little binder you can buy from his website called simply "Guitar Scales." Each mode shows the five positions on the fretboard, and also gives you the interval differences. There's about 21 scales covered, including stuff like the bebop 8-note scale, which I recently learned elsewhere was Jerry Garcia's weapon of choice (provides a much better understanding for how to play "like Jerry" (at least for me) than that normally stated, which is that he played "chromatically"). Here's a link to Poole's site:

Also check out this little exercise Poole put up on the web, using sixth intervals, which I find addictive (I've since seen Jimmy Herring show this exercise on a video up on youtube):
