There are 5 positions with blue, then green, yellow, orange, red, and then blue again. The fingering is: 1 is the index finger, 2 is the middle finger, etc. Locate on your instrument the 5th, 7th, 12th, 17th and 19th frets, on the chart they are marked in black dots. If you were wanting to play in A minor, you would pick the pictures to A minor (which uses the same notes as C Major, G Maj with a minor 7th in the scale, or D minor with a Major 6th in the scale), The notes represented on the printed neck are where all the notes in that key are. So, if you were wanting to improvise a lead or add any extra notes, these would be the right notes for that key. The use of the notes and the manner in which they are played are your choice and they define a playing style or a style of music, as is country, rock, blues, jazz, etc. The Slide Rule Chart does not teach you to play or suggest any method; but it clearly shows the notes for any chosen key on the entire neck. You pick a key, and play from the 5 positions. Pick a recording that you know the key, usually the first chord of a song is the key to set the slide, but this varies. Then, play combinations of the notes showing, no matter the color of the position. Thanks, GUITARSLIDERULE

Locate the brown dots at the 5th, 7th, 12th, 17th and 19th frets. For instance, above each set of 2 fingerboards are 4 related keys. The gray area on the end are the open strings. If the first chord of a song is C Major, like the chords: C Am F and G, improvise with these hand positions using C Major fingerboards or C Major/m7 fingerboards. Usually, the first chord indicates the key. If the chords of a song begin in Em, use the fingering for E minor or E minor/Maj6. Every note showing would be in that key, no matter which color hand position you play. Try it.
