Learning the scales
I'm starting to teach myself the major scale and the minor pentatonic scale, do you guys have any tips? And I read that after both scales up and down backwards and forwards would I move on to chord progression?
Kind of. That's a tough question to have the *right* answer to, but you should definitely learn the relation between scales and chord progressions. Start by understanding the I VI V progression. I think you'll dig it, check out this video.
I am currently learning too :)
I am working through a few of the free videos here http://www.guitarguru.net/best-online-guitar-lessons/
My problem comes when I start playing a little faster, these big fingers get right in the way haha! If anyone has some good tips on how to learn to play faster that would be awesome!
You're trying to speed up too quickly. Slow it right down and don't start trying to speed up until you can play them in your sleep.
