I like the idea that the method doesn't just stick to making you memorize patterns and they give you other pointers as well, but in the same time, they don't mention anything about the characteristic scale degrees and other important note combinations which would be found all over the neck, regardless of the position.

I completely agree with you Cosmin on your criticism. On the other hand I think guitar learning should be very similar to how we learn languages when we are little babies smile.gif We don't learn complicated grammar structure or rules, we start with simple words and sentences and learn first how the language sounds. I think learning different scales should be the same. Before learning all the positions, scale degrees and combinations we should first learn how the scale sounds and feels. Then I think the theory is very easy, just a matter of practicing and learning.. I think this lesson does a great job in that regards..

I've tried these before - they're made by David Wallimann (he's got a bunch of lessons on gmc for those that don't know). You have to buy the map tracks, but there is a free sample on the website. I downloaded it and found it quite fun!
