Re: more theory questions
Yeah i did the same thing, you'll cotton on pretty quick.
Most of my learning was through guitar pro's scales feature. I just loaded up a scale, built a chord (make notes on the intervals of your notes from the root) and tried to guess the chord name before i go to the chord chart.
Another good thing to do is to get you're guitar, build a chord one note at a time (without any scale in mind), and explore unusual fingerings and tonalities, then try to figure out the chord name, write it into guitar pro, hit the chord creator and see what it says.
Also, a chord can have many different names based on what the context is (the root is not always the lowest note!).
Other than reverse engineering it like that, just try and get as much information from the internet from as many different sites as possible. Knowing your scales and modes helps a lot in chord building and understanding WHEN they should be minors, majors, 7s, M7s, m7s, etc.
I hope that helps you in some kind of way, toodles, Julz.
