  • Relative minor questionDateSat Mar 05, 2016 7:44 am
    Forum post by dehowe85. Topic: Relative minor question

    I think I had a moment of discovery this morning. If I use Pos 1, the 6th tone will be on the d string. So in my mind if I'm playing position 1 i can always figure out my relative minor by my index finger on the d string and then my relative major would be the low e string where my middle finger is. Hopefully the gurus here can confirm or correct me if I'm wrong.

    No kidding. This is getting irritating. I suggest the moderator remove the perpetrators profile.

    So if i were to move the 1st position of Gmaj 2 frets up the neck I would be playing A maj? If this is so then I could move that 1st position anywhere on the neck and be playing the equivalent scale? And if this is true I would only need to learn 14 positions and be able to play in any scale?

    Just figured as long as I'm there might as well kill two birds with one stone.

    I've recently started working on the 14 pos in G major. I know that the relative minor of G maj is E min. Would I playing the Emin scale if I started at the 6th tone (E as my root instead of G) of the Gmaj scale and played the next 7 tones? Am I on track or am I way off base?

  • Beginner: Where should I start?DateMon Nov 02, 2015 2:00 pm

    You'll start out with right hand picking exercises. You will also get some left hand exercises. There will be a lot of them. They will get boring really quickly but its really important to stick with it. Trust me. I slacked off early with them now i'm paying for it now that the fun stuff has begun. . Everyone wants to start by learning songs and solos. If you get the basics down first the rest will be easier.

    But like the D maj scale, in the caged system the first shape (D shape) appears at the second and third fret and therefore you wouldn't use any of the open strings.

    The scales need to have one of the caged shapes within the first two frets. After I took a second look at them I realized that.

    Way to shed some light on it.

  • 5 pattern scale questionsDateSat Mar 21, 2015 12:49 pm

    Why do some of the major scales in the caged system use the open strings in one of the patterns (i.e. C F G) and others don't even though every scale (excluding C# Db) has open string notes on the entire neck? I'm trying to compare my worksheets to other resources available on the net. I'm confused!?!?!?

    Heres another for review. This one I did 2 beats per note at 60 bpm. The first half is a little sketchy but I thing I'm really close on the 2nd half. At least my critic Harley wasn't complaining. I'll be honest, I've never played with a metronome until posting these videos.


  • Anyone have "blues chords guitar.pdf"?DateSun Mar 15, 2015 7:45 pm

    I couldn't open this file from drop send. All the other pdf's were fine. I get this error when opening:

    Adobe Reader could not open 'blues chords guitar.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).

    Hey Dehowe85,

    This is a bit better keep practicing this for several weeks. Do as Delta advised you just only one note per beat, the 2nd part of your video you do 2 notes per beat. Yes it may seem a bit boring but it will help you for sure.

    Your pinky seems to be more curved thats good try to place your thumb on the centre of the neck. Here's a link from the download area there's a pdf which shows bad techniques maybe this will help you.

    Bad Technique pdf

    This was just my point of view I'm not a Guru like Pebber and Ursin. Keep it up and try to do the exercises every day you'll see soon improvements.

    I hope this helps you a bit

    Grtz Ray



    I've actually found it an interesting challenge to try to make the metronome disappear. Makes it less boring

    Good advice Ray. I just noticed that by playing with my thumb in the middle of the neck makes it easier to keep my pinky curved when playing the low E string and i don't mute the other strings as bad as I used to.

    I do notice that my thumb tries to migrate up the neck. I have to constantly remind myself to move it down.

    This one is at 60 bpm and I turned down the metronome to 1 beat per measure instead of 4. Let me know if this is better.

    Looks like I need to come up with a happy medium for the metronome volume and my guitar.
