String Skipping Thingy

Hey all. *
I have to preface this by saying my knowledge of theory, sucks. *So, take this as one of those EVH-type 'falling-down-the-stairs-and-landing-on-your-feet" things. *If you dig it, cool. *If you hate it, tough. *LOL *Here we go...

String Skipping Thingy
The 10th and 12th frets are a couple of my favorites. *No sharps or flats, and I can quickly get a bearing on where my music should go by referring back to either of those two. *I do love them. :-)


Simple enough, right?

Of course, it's movable to where it works best for you.

It works good with my ears, but if any Theory Masters have improvements on this, feel free to post. :-) *
