If i change my tunings from e standard will everything ive learned so far considering theory like scales shapes and modes have to be changed to accommodate for the different tuning or is it the same thing?
You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
You'll only have to change the shape for the bottom two strings, the rest will function the same, but it will be a different key.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Don't think of shapes, think of notes on the fretboard.

If you go into D for the low E string, just remember that fret 1 is no longer F, but D#.

aka:

Remember the music theory you know, and alter it slightly.

All you really need to know is this:

``````
A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G#
Bb     Db   Eb     Gb   Ab
``````

There is only a half step between B and C and E and F. Everything else has a flat/sharp in between.

Then instead of going E > F > F# go D > D# > E

Learning the note's isn't to hard =p theres only 12..

Please add me if as a friend I helped! (I like to think I'm a friendly person)
yeah but knowing where every single one is all over the neck and being able to reach it without thinking is hard

Intervals.

I use 'key points' for me.

``````
A---A#---B---C---C#---D---D#---E---F---F#---G---G#
10--11---12--1---2----3---4----5---6---7----8---9
``````

I use C as my major reference point, and I can find it using intervals from any other note.

I can do the math quickly :P so let's say I'm playing my low E open. I'd immediately fret 8 if I wanted a C, and I now have two reference points. C and E. From there I can find any note on the fretboard quickly by counting intervals in my head from my C or E reference point.

But thats just how I do it :P

It's about as useful as learning to write English instead of just speaking it.
but theres tabs right i mean wouldnt that cancel out notation

No. Notation tells you things that tabs don't (for example, most tabs don't accurately show you the rhythm) and allows you to communicate better with other musicians. That's what comes to mind, I'm sure other people can think of other benefits.

Besides, chicks dig notation. Fact.
