    Hi Tony,

    I just wondered about the positional shift to the 6th scale degree on the 12th fret?

    On a 5 string with high C…

    My problem is that I see every position from a chordal point of view so when I make that shift to that fingering position or box or whatever you want to call it at the 12th fret on the 'A' string I'm picturing an Am (II) chord, in that hand position!…For me to stay in C Lydian (Mentally and visually) I find I prefer continuing the 2nd finger pattern onto the 'D' string and then shifting to the 10th fret on the D string with my index finger and then play or continue the C lydian shape from that 1st finger, then play the F# G & A on the G string and then the notes B and C at the 11th and 12th fret on the 'C' string.

    I realise I could just play the same 8th fret shape at the 10th fret (on the 5 string high C) but find by being higher up on the neck it gives me more options by being half way between the bass and treble clefs for anything descending….I hope this makes sense.

    And thanks for the great lessons by the way :)
