can any one explain to me the scales, appregios, chord progression and how to use them to make my own music. I watched the John Frusciante lesson and I was lost and confused about all that stuff.

Hey
Im not very educated in the theory myself but i can tell you this,it's not something you can just pick up in a day.I recommend going to Andrew's theory lessons and starting on page one.If you really want to understand it you wil have to put lots of work into it.As for how to use them in your own music,it basically gives you extra knowledge to know what your going to play before you play it.Like if you understand scales and theory you can listen to a song and n your head know exactly what key and scale you will want to play before you ever even pickup the guitar.So basically my idea of theory is like a mechanic going to work with all the right tools,being prepaired .

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Ok..


Scales: Scales are like a group of notes that have a special sound with a feeling. Like a Western sound for example. There are tons of scales. Scales have a root note. The scale's name is named after its root note.

Arpeggios: Arpeggios are notes from a chord, in other words, a broken down chord. Instead of strumming the chord, you can play some of its notes and that is an arpeggio.

Chord Progression: I actually never use this word, but i assume that i means all the chords used in a specific song, the order of the chords and were they are played.


Im not very good defining these stuff. So if im wrong about something, please let me know, so i can correct myself as well.
