If you want to help develop a learning framework for theory, then come and help us out.

Discussions

I teach a bible lesson first. Then we have the 'lesson'. Then we practice it. The lesson can be theory as long as it can be made practical and worked on as a playing piece.

Ok, that's good to know. Is the COF good for anything else?

A guy at church suggested that book. He said it taught him more about guitar than he learned from his teachers. (He's still young so don't get wild on me there... )

Does any one have any questions regarding intervals?

We now have suzanne in the forum lending a helping hand with music theory. Let's step forward and supplement that with information for those seeking it. Can you contribute, even if only asking questions?

Andy, I thought we could start the CAGED discussion from scratch. I just started a new job (after several months of unemployment) and yes I am an engineer. Not working is great for guitar playing, but not for the wallet. Anyway I will get together some info on intervals and post it also some on the CAGED system.

I would really like if you could get the interval topic moving.

Ric, We can still discuss CAGED, we will just have to enter our own explanations. LOL. I think its a good tool and should be used.

Well, Neil said we should learn the 'C' Major scale along with the 'Natural Note Scale' in first position. (First position being the first four frets.)

As to why minor pentatonic over G major because it is easier (less notes) and it is used a lot in blues and rock.
If you prefer the G major that is fine. Either pattern can be moved anywhere on the neck for different keys.
Next question, the 3rd and 6th are always minor in a major key. For example, all major scales have the chord pattern as follows: I, ii, iii, IV, V, vi, viidim. Where capitals are major and lower case are minor. We can explore more of why this is so if you'd like.
