I'm starting to learn to play, i got my guitar for christmas. i can read tabs with no problem, i can even play alot of my favorite songs. i have a vague understanding of scales, and the whole "WWHWWWH" thing. i looked up the lessons on UG, but they all look fairly advanced.
Example:

Key:C

Ex 1:

1st Degree 1st Octave Higher 2nd Octave Higher
|- - - - - - - - - | - - - - - - - - - |- - - - - - - - - - |
C- D- E-F- G- A-B- C- D-E- F- G- A- B- C- D- E- F- G- A- B- C = notes
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 = degree notes


e|------------------------------------------10-12-13-15-17-19-20--|
B|---------------------------------10-12-13-----------------------|
G|-------------------------9-10-12--------------------------------|
D|-----------------9-10-12----------------------------------------|
A|---------8-10-12------------------------------------------------|
E|-8-10-12--------------------------------------------------------|

is that a standard starting point, or can a scale be performed on one string at a time.....i clearly have no idea what i'm talking about, so I'll rely on what you professionals tell me.

thanks in advance
