Was given my first guitar for Christmas when I was around 13. Over the years I have tried to learn from shitty tab books that try to pass off one note voicing of epic songs by Led Zep and Hendrix!. I love the blues and would give my right nut to the devil if I could play it at legendary level.... but, I officially suck and as I work though the daily practice sheet and youtube videos I discover new ways in which I suck, but I love guitar and I want to get better.... cheers PB

... thanks for this.... I am only starting out with the CAGED system and your post will really help me understand what the system leads on to..Question.... (although I think I know what the answer will be) should I learn the CAGED system OR concentrate on the 14 position? as the 14 incorporates the CAGED system would I be best to cut out the middle man?Can you give any more basic ways to play the shapes over chord progressions.... I like learning scales, don't get me wrong but I also like to mak...

After having the soapbar about 2 months I have sold it to fund a mint condition PRS SE245 that I bought off Ebay...... I loved the feel of the soaps neck and shape so much that I couldn't resist the upgrade.The 245 is a very nice guitar, the poor guy who sold it to me had hurt his hand badly in a circular saw accident and was selling his right handed guitars off so that he can buy a lefty and learn how to play it!..... Man, I can't even imagine how difficult it would be to start over left handed...

I'm working on the CAGED system, I've never tried learning scales before so this may be a daft question.... Starting position 1 is the G major, moving up to position 2, is that still G major but just played further up the neck?.... Guess by my question I'm trying to understand what the connection is between root notes and shapes..

.... Thank's, I'm reading the destructions with a cuppa just now.... I am learning the 5 position system and it would be nice to be able to apply the shapes to backing track chord progressions.

... You will get no argument from me, I would love a nice les Paul standard. On the bay I have watched a few go for a bag of sand but I would really like to play the one I plan to buy first plus I really can't pull the trigger on one until my playing is way better than it is now as I think les would turn in his grave if he heard me play :/ I suck!

Just bought a PRS SE soapbar locally for cheap :). Body has no major damage, little fret wear, crackle from the volume pot... I'm a sucker for something that requires some TLC...I like the wide fat neck, seems to fit my hand well and my fingers don't feel so cramped up when pulling chords...Finding it cheap means that I can afford to tinker with it a little, also when/if I wish to sell later on I should get close to what I paid for it back.It also sounds really nice :D Should stop my guitar buyi...
