After having a discussion with my guitar teacher yesterday about how our brains in our heads don't always communicate with our fingers, I proceeded to rock the hell out of the Ionian (or Major) scale. That's do-re-mi. Thank you very much, "Sound of Music."
He said he's never seen anyone play it so well in just a week. Woo! I guess I'm a scale prodigy.
He then assured me that learning scales and practicing them will help with every other aspect of the guitar. Good to know. Because I still feel like I can't play a song to save my life.
Still, I bet now, I could kick butt on Guitar Hero. Do they sell a scales-only version?
