Re: Some basic stuff.

Hi Door and welcome to Chordie.

I know very little guitar theory, but what I do know is that for finger picking and the blues, the pentatonic scales are a must. Some types of music don't use scales very much but others are based on them. They are a good thing to know.

Check this out:
click on the "Blues" or "Music Theory" tabs at the top.
Click on "Scales".

Keep Rockin!!!!!!!!!!!

Practicing scales is also a good way to develop dexterity and finger independence.

Re: Some basic stuff.

Come visit us in the Theory section.  This is pretty much all we talk about.

Someday we'll win this thing...

Re: Some basic stuff.

In fact Jerome is right, this thread should be in Theory so I will move it.


Sorry DOORsly, I forgot to welcome you to Chordie and do not worry about your English, it is fine.
