About 2 months ago I bought a loaded Clapton pickguard with the Active pickups off a fellow Harmony Central member (who I am told frequents Jemsite as well) that was out of his 1996 Torino Red USA Eric Clapton Signature Strat.
I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it, but I love the...
I have a slight dilemma. I've been playing the gutar for approx 18 years and I am technically quite proficient. However, I want to get a lot better and I want to be a much better musician. The problem is I am not a beginner at all and all books assume that as you progress you are...
I need your help to become a better player: I need a roadmap!
I can dedicated 3h/week to learn.

I can play play a few songs reading tabs.
nothing fancy though and I am a bit bored to read only 1/3 of my guitar magazine because I don't understand the chord progressions, the mode etcetc
since I have a bit more time now I'd like to get...
I'm wondering what is a good way and/or good resources to teach myself how to put together songs of my own. I'm really only interested in the instrumental guitar niche since that is what I am most gripped and consumed by. I haven't taken any kind of theory or anything formal, though I did have...
Hey guys and girls,
I'm exploring some scales and i want to know how do i work out the chords to play over a certain scale.
Example: Say if i'm playing a basic A major scale how do i work out what chords will fit with that scale?
Is there some formula or something like that.
Or do you just...

I was practicing today and a friend of mine told me: you know that the E minor Penta you're playing you can use it as a G major penta and do this and that?
I really feel I am really bad at theory as I am a self taught guitar player (and I thought that I could be a...
Ok, I admit, I'm not such a theory guy, but now it's time to finally learn this stuff.
How do you switch keys? Say I'm playing an A major scale... to switch to another key, it has to be a key that's within A major, correct? Or does it even matter and I can switch to just any note at all? An A...
I want to learn music theory with apllication to guitar. I would like to learn scales, composing and improvising. I want a method with exercises that are easy buildup method. Everything goes, books, progs, dvd's ... Anyone got any experience with it ?
