I think the best thing for me, before we start is theory.

Could you teach me music theory basics? (notes, ways to remember notes, scale patterns, etc.) I'm not trying to get to complex in one step, I just think it'll make this easier for me. Hopefully over time we can add more theory over time.

Thanks Alex!

Sounds good! Let's start by leaning the neck first!
it might seem very complicated, but it's not as hard as it seems!
Let's simplify it!
First and sixth strings are the same and after 12 fret everything is starting over!
So all you need to learn is 5 strings up to 12 frets!
Here is the trick!
First I want you to learn all the dots and open strings!
Open strings are easy to remember if we will use a little rhyme smile.gif starting with a low E
Eat
All
Day
Get
Big
Eeasy

So for now I want you to memorize this:


To speed up the process play a note and call it out loud and than check if you are correct!
Don't go any farther just yet! Let me know when you feel comfortable and I will show you what to do next! smile.gif

Awesome! So now let's take it to the next level!
That's what I would like you to do:
Take open strings and learn the same notes on the rest of the neck
Find it on every string!






Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Hey Alex,

Sorry I haven't been so active within the last month. School started so I've been busy.

Right now I'd like to continue on with these theory lessons. They are really helping me. I know you said you had a few tasks for me with these theory lessons so I'd like to continue with them.
