You should listen when you play those scale "shapes", not just play them up and down. That's the main point. You learn the "right" notes and also how they sound like. That way you won't end up just pointlessly running the scale up and down.

Ok. Point being, that is a more adequate and helpful response than 3 words that give hardly any sense of direction.
Words are good. Use them to convey your ideas and opinions.
If someone asks me for directions and I say "That way" and point, that's not nearly as helpful as "Down this road about a quarter mile on your right. There's a blue sign in front."

Get it?

Why does other post have to be derailed into an argument in these forums?

Get it?

Here's the clever thing about forums...if you ask a question and don't fully understand a reply you get, you can actually ask ANOTHER question. If this happens a few times then it becomes what we call a discussion whereby posts are traded back and forth on the subject in question.

The threadstarter may have read my post and had an epiphany, realising "shit, y'know in amongst all this theory I haven't really been listening to what it is I'm trying to learn, and that's the whole point of this exercise isn't it...learning to recognise, classify and ultimately recall the sounds I'm trying to use when I play"

Equally he may not have, in which case he could have posted asking for clarification, and myself and others would have continued gently nudging him towards discovering the answer to his question.

True...he may have.... or he may have thought; "Wow thanks a bunch for that putdown"

Gotta side with Prince of Flannel or whatever-his-name-is here..... the original reply could have included another sentence or two so that TS would be statistically more likely to reach said epiphany..and thats said with a great deal of respect Seagull....

...and it comes mainly from having to answer the same questions over and over again mate...so I'm not invoking the curse of the mummys tomb on you...
