I’m not a rocker or blues man on a Gibson. I can make a long-fingered foray into the twelfth-fret region, but it’s not fruitful. When I mention “buck-effing” around the fretboard, therefore, only one B-C and E-F pair obtains per string. That’s final.
The premise of buck-effing is if you can swoop to the B and E on each string, naturally occurring diatonic semitones (NODS) get you to the following note virtually in your sleep. It’s the very next buck-effing fret every time.
Here’s a string-by-string tick-off of the pairs:
You’re four-sevenths of the way to note nirvana after several months of intense work on this shortcut. That leaves just A-D-G, which I tag with ADAGE for easy recall.
There you have it. In the quest to subvert musicology we’ve added NODS to OOF and OOP. It’s time to fabricate a cockamamie expedient for ADAGE — coming next.
