Some guitar players (like Ritchie Blackmore and Yngwie J. Malmsteen) like to use guitars with a scalloped fretboard. Why? In the video below I explain the differences between 'regular' and scalloped fretboards by addressing the following questions:
• Is a scalloped fretboard faster than a normal fretboard?
• Are you going to like a scalloped guitar fretboard?
• How does scalloping a guitar fretboard influence your sound?
Tommaso Zillio is a professional prog rock/metal guitarist and composer based in Edmonton, AB, Canada.
Tommaso is currently working on an instrumental CD, and an instructional series on fretboard visualization and exotic scales. He is your go-to guy for any and all music theory-related questions.
