    My old teacher and best buddy is now teaching Skype lessons. Some serious, hardcore theory and analysis lessons, if any one is interested! It's because of him that I tested in to the highest level of theory core classes at Berklee when I first got there!

    Hey all, Just a request for assistance in settling a minor argument/ discussion regards to modes. I have been recently trying to acquaint myself with modes and learning scale patterns for them.

    So I have a peculiar work schedule, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, and at least half of the 12 hour shift I spend just browsing the internet. I have not had the gall to waltz into my work with a guitar and sit silently practicing, but I feel like I'm wasting a lot of time. Time that could spent...

    The progression is: dminor , Cmaj ,Ebmaj ,Dbmajor then Fminor to Ebmaj. I have to play over this progression for a minute or so due to a trumpet player temporarily opting out of the solo section. So I have a General idea what to play thanks to the caged method but I feel like i'm missing...

    Just added this simple lesson video to my Youtube page! I get asked by my students a lot if there are any good tricks to learn what basic chords you can use in every key, so i came up with this simple method to help them out.

    "It's just you wear those skin-tight dresses with your G-string tuned to A" Is that UP two half-steps or DOWN 10? Sorry in advance. :D

    Hey guys. I'm an old 51 year old guy that has been playing forever. I can almost play any song within reason that I hear that I want to figure out, but I don't always know what I'm playing. LOL. I mean, I know what key it's in and I can of course tell what the tempo is, etc, and I know the...

    I became interested in metal a few years ago and since then I bought a guitar which I haven't made much progress with. All I have been doing is trying to learn riffs by ear, mostly by slowing songs down or listening to the same sections over and over. I haven't been able to learn an entire song...

    I've been playing guitar on and off for 15 years now and no matter how much material I read and study the theory behind it all still eludes me. I get frustrated and give up but my passion for the guitar calls and I always come back. I need some tips to point me in the right direction to...

    So I'm just getting into theory in a serious way, and I've been reading about modes and a lot of information seems to be very vague on applyling modes. Say I'm playing over a chord progression in C, a simple I IV V so C,F,G (Major) in my head I'm thinking I've got two choices, I can play in C...

    When playing in, say C, would you use modes that contain all the same as C and center your playing around the new mode key (like A in Aeolian) or do change modes to one that's not diatonic to the original key?

    I have been messing with guitar since i was 12 and am now taking it seriously at 17. I prefer to learn techniques instead of songs so i know what i can do when i can learn songs. I have amazing speed for my right hand, but my left hand is slow. I am also self taught. When i play, i ALWAYS use...

    Anyone try one of those perfect pitch courses? I have always wanted to check it out but never got around to it. I can hear and recognize most common chords and intervals fairly easy, but I think it would be awesome to train myself and see how good I could get at it. Always felt like I was on the...

    A little background (This could get long): I've had 8 guitar lessons in my whole life, 4 at the age of 13 and 4 in my mid 20's, now I'm 53! The first time I had to quit because of no money, and the 2nd time my instructor moved away. If you ask me to play a G everywhere on the neck I can...

    Hi everybody. I was looking for some 24-frets neck diagram on the Internet (because my guitar has 24 frets). I didn't find any, so I decided to make one myself. Here it is! I hope you guys find it useful ;) By the way, can somebody tell me how to post images? I mean, I know how to attach them...
