wait, from what ive gone through in the styles section there are actually a few good blues lessons. Basic Blues parts 1 2 and 3 were pretty good, but if you wanted it all in one article i guess someone could do it. im not sure if it is needed though.

i plan on writing something over my holiday break, im not sure what though. ill let you guys know when i decide.

Yeah, I was looking for one big lesson on Blues. That would clear everything up, and make finding what you want easily accessible.

I'm editing it now. So, you're posting your article on jazz scales now?

something that explains scales themselves, like the definition, instead of going straight into telling us what to play, explain chords

I believe there is an explanation of chords already. I'll check if there are for scales, and then, I'll add it if it needs to be added.

Is that it? Considering all the lessons to be scrapped, that seems quite a small list of ones to replace them with.
The above user has physical deformities, which make any crude, sarcastic or offensive comments actually the fault of the threadstarter. Honest.

There should be a lesson about musical notation, how to read them and exercises. Especially on rythms and rests.
-When you have eliminated all which is impossible,then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth

-PRS Tremonti SE with SD SH-1 '59 (Neck) and SD Distortion (Bridge)

that might be hard as it is hard to show rhythm notation when typing. if it could be done well, then i think it would be awesome, but i doubt that it would work.

I'd love to see a lesson on strumming...basic strumming patterns, how to figure out the strumming pattern in a song...every day there's at least 2 or 3 threads to the effect of "STRUMMING HOW DO I DO IT"

Of course I'm not the person to write that, I have no idea how to learn to strum

How about more stuff for beginners. Like Posture...I.E. how to hold the guitar properly, how to properly place your picking hand\chord playing arm and hand, etc. etc.

There are a lot of beginners out there that can actually read tabs and music notations but have never played anything period. Say for instance my nephew.....can read bass\guitar\drum tabs but has never touched any instrument.

I guess it could be titled something like "Guitar etiquite".

^ I don't agree, Individualism can develope afterwards. There are a lot of beginners that have trouble just because they are doing things incorrectly and after it is pointed out and "fixed" they do great.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for individualism....if I weren't I wouldn't be a 43 yrd old with brow piercings and all that crap. But style and techniques can be changed after they learn how to play.

Wonderful match by TS but in the end simply overwhelmed by the pure skill and simplicity of unfluffed. A true professional in action.

I found strumming up to be a pain at first. and strumming without a pick can be a pain when starting.

how about a lesson on sweep picking.

You could write one on secondary dominants, or chord subs, if you know about them.

-SD


I started to write a post equivelant to the Melody & Harmony one in MT, for WJ, before he told me to go shove it--when I finish the M&H thread; and clean it up, I'll finish that.

Actually the subs one might be longer.. and is super in depth.

I wouldn't mind one on chord substitutions. I could help with the FULL Blues lesson, or something.

Breakdowns of the following:
  • 12 Bar Blues and its Forms
  • The I Chord and how to play over it
  • The IV Chord and how to play over it
  • The V Chord and how to play over it
  • The Turnaround
  • Blues Soloing
  • Minor over Major and Major over Minor
  • Minor Blues
  • Slide Blues


IF anyone can think of any more, than say 'em. If not, then that's it.
For a real blues lesson, each of those topics need to be huge. The 12 Bar Blues and its Forms would need to be about a page with chord diagrams and the likes. The I chord, IV chord, and V chord should take up 2 pages - 3 pages atleast. The turnaround should be a page. Blues soloing should be a page and a half or more. Minor over Major and Major over Minor shouldn't be that long, just an explanation on how this works. Minor Blues should be a page (or we could copy Redwing's article ). And Slide Blues should be a page to a page and a half.
