It’s lessons like this that I wish I had years ago. We’re going to learn most everything there is to know about an “A Major” scale, then throw in some speed exercises to get the blood pumping!
Thank you for these lessons!!! I’ve been playing guitar for 38 yrs, learned by ear or copying someone else…music theory was so boring I never got through it after many attempts. Your videos answer a ton of questions and hope it gets me for mediocre to BaddAss in short order… Thanks again and please don’t stop lessons. You Da Man!
Great lessons, Ben!! Thanks!
My pinkie has a life of its own and flies up and away doing these exercises. Any secrets to getting the pinkie under control?
A very common problem.
go very slow and concentrate on position of fingers while not on strings.
try not to lift any finger farther from the fingerboard than necessary to get a clear open note…they should hover just above the strings if possible.
It takes some time, but you can eventually train yourself to keep fingers all at a ready position to play when needed.
