Starting with 5 position system

Hey guys, I've been playing about 2 years and want to expand knowledge to play jazz, blues, bebop.

I'm starting where Pebber suggests, with the 5 position systems. I watched the "scale systems" videos on YouTube, downloaded the PDF file and I'm learning them G. Once you learn the major, all minors, pents, arpeggio, do you then move onto another key...say A? And so on.

After you've learnt the keys on the 6th string, do you switch to the 5th string and learn it there, then the 4th string?

I'm a student and I suck and the music I play at college sucks, I have loads of free time, I usually practice between 11pm -4am but I suck. I Am going to subscribe here once I get so some spare cash.

Pebber you're an inspiration and an awesome teacher!

You have to learn ALL 12 keys man in order - C, G, D, A, E, B, F#, C# then C, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb and Cb. Hey wait isnt that 15 keys?
technically yes - but F#=Gb, C#=Db, Cb=B.
Thanks for the kind words I appreicate all your comments and support!

Thanks Pebber! Would you suggest I learn all 6th string roots, then move onto 5th string, then 4th? Or is there another way??

Thanks again man!

Jaggers,

You need to keep things simple. You should probably just stick with the 6th string for a while and invest a lot of time learning those positions. I know that from experience, I ended up just confusing myself by over-complicating things and learning too much at once. The scale diagrams Pebber has put up on his website will keep you occupied for a very long time.
