We can never have enough turnarounds in our bag, not only do they make great intros and endings, they give us something cool to play at the last two bars of about any blues. So as we can see it is our best interest to know as many as we can. To help achieve that goal here is what I call the Turnaround Factory. If you go through this I can guarantee you will be able to get a turnaround in any key, anywhere on the neck.
Now of course like anything worthwhile it will take a little time to get together but that is the fun of it! The added benefit of working through this other than a ton of great turnarounds is that it really helps with getting the fingerboard together, we will have gone through three note inversions of Dom7 chords across the neck in different string sets. Pretty cool eh?
