MrFluffyHippo - Glad everything is going good.
Question for the pros here. Ill keep it quick to not take away from thread.

I've been playing for about 12years. Can play many solos and full songs and make up some ok sounding shit. But I can't read music. Don't know any chords or structure or scales or anything. Where do I start to learn this? Phone Post 3.0
Learn major scale and pentatonic. Everything is built around major scale. Phone Post

Jacks Wasted Life -  Weird, I use root 6 barre chords all the time and find them very comfortable. I find it easier to play a F barre chord then an open F where you only play 4 strings. Phone Post


Me too, I'll use the 6 string root barre chord shape even if I want to voice the chord with the top 4 strings. It's a similar shape to the 5th string root minor barre chord, which you'll need to have mastered to play B minor, C minor, C# minor etc without a capo.

The 'Dummies' guide to music theory is actually a pretty reasonable resource for this. It covers the stave, time signatures, subdivisions of the beat (minim, crotchet, quaver, etc), scales, intervals, chord construction, etc. It isn't guitar specific but this is all universal.

I'd recommend it over some of the guitar specific stuff which isn't really a music theory primer but a system of patterns for navigating around the fretboard. That stuff is useful, but it isn't the fundamentals.

It's all down to hand position and stretching with the aforementioned chords. Phone Post

A noise gate? It deadens signal noise like 60 cycle hum and inadvertant string noise. Phone Post

How is it that you own enough gear to fill a shipping container but can't play basic barre chords?

What gear are you talking about??? When you play as much as I do you have to change out the strings. I haven't touch my pedal board other than the tuner for months.

Oh amd when I play metallica and pantera Phone Post

That sounds kinda boring. I've been playing a lot of scales and arpeggios seems to be helping a lot. I can play ip to the 12th fret pretty well without looking at the neck Phone Post

Lol. Seems like a lot of hate is from your side viorage. I've never had as much enjoyment playing as I do my classical. Actually I'd like to sell my dean vmnt. It shreds. Thinner neck than ibanez i think. If you're interested.
