LOL Disruptor. I've just recently started to come around to the idea of there being really only one scale in the Major family. All the modes are just variations, and you use the intervals to create a feeling.If you change to Harmonic, Melodic, Hungarian, or some other minor that's when you're really changing the scale, and that produces a whole other set of modes.But I digress, and that's exactly what we should probably avoid in this thread.

Welcome, Disruptor. Heyman's comments are spot-on.And don't ever worry about sucking at guitar. We all suck. We all make posts about what we suck at and how we learned a new way to not suck, or to ask for help figuring out how to not suck.We also make videos of ourselves sucking. It's funny for me to watch my old videos, but it's also cool because I can see how much I've improved in the last 2 years, even after playing guitar for more than 25 years.You'll find that no one here will ever criticiz...

Your question is clear.But I'll ask you to slow down. Your question requires a very advanced topic. That is the topic of "modes."Using your E example, your notes are E-F#-G-A-B-C-D-E. As you said, that is WHWWHWW and that is the Aeolian mode, or commonly called the Natural Minor scale. (But it's really just the G major scale beginning on E, which gives it a different feeling.)But you can see how this topic can get pretty advanced. You have a different spacing of the whole steps and half steps de...

I just watched heyman's video for the first time, and that is a great idea. I gotta try that.

Hi Zvono, and welcome.First, there's nothing at all wrong with your English. It's very clear. So don't worry about that.Next, if I were you I would go forth with my goals. As one who played the guitar for twenty years before finding Pebber and subscribing, I'd tell you that I learned a lot of songs but I didn't understand really anything about the instrument, and that really limited me.Within about 6 months of paying attention to Pebber and music theory I started being able to improvise almost a...

Hey heyman!Good to hear from you again? How's your playing coming along?

I'd say you're correct. If the song or lick is in Am, then it's not in A.And I'm recently coming around to thinking of something in Am as actually being in Cmaj, just Aeolian.

Quote: Adam wrote in post #8From my own experience, it took me at least 6 months of working on my picking to even be able to implement it comfortably (KEY WORD) in a live setting,,,and at least 1 year for me to be able to pick like that without thinking. I'm talking about the scalpel picking.In one of the old videos of Allan Holdsworth, he mentions that any time he learns a new technique he'll practice it for something like 18 months before he ever considers including it in a performance.That's ...

It's worth it if you feel it will give you better control.I've been working on scalpel and sarod picking using Pebber's techniques for about two years now. It gives me great control when I'm trying to play individual notes quickly and effortlessly.But when I'm using other play styles I find myself altering my wrist angle and locking the thumb more to give myself more rigidity and a more full-arm motion. I just noted this over last weekend.It's a constant exercise to improve technique. I think Pe...
