For ear training on the Modes (lessons as well!) go to www.teoria.com www.teoria.com/exercises/se.htm Like it is all here for all of the English and Spanish readers or the world. www.looknohands.com has a lot of patterns for you as well. I am sure that anyone can get it after looking at these two si...

I would agree with you whole-heartedly spanishphrygian, but this show is a definte igher brow version of Pap Idol. The judges are respected musicians/conductors themselves and they're very specific about why a contestant is being eliminated. The one thing that shows that this programme is being don...

Sounds interesting, but I think that American Idol was such a joke. I mean come on where they REALLY judging MUSICAL talent? I do not think so. As far as classical, the barre is set very high and long after one can just play notes and chops. Segovia was all about interpretation and tone you know. Th...

I think these things are so useless. Just practice the guitar man, and forget about all of these other gadgets. I remember a teacher once telling me a story about how Schubert created this devices and ruined his fingers. I remember another teacher saying how in the 19th century Pianists trying to be...

Uli Roth's Sky Overture! More for the composing of the whole thing of course. I mean just because the whole solo is not play five million miles per hour does not make it less of a solo. Still Uli shreds quite will at the perfect moment on this one. :D

Actually, the thought did just cross my mind: Maybe five notes per string is even better! Yet I could find a way too use all ten fingers, and my third leg as well. I suppose I cannot do the third leg thing on stage anymore though. Now, back to the the point is that I do not understand the reason for...

Segovia what is the point?

I just do not understand the point of the Segovian scales. Except that it was a hoop that I had to jump through with my teacher. Does anyone know the point of classical guitar scales? I mean like the Segovian and Shearer and such. I still play the nylon strings, but to me four fingers per strings is...

Paco de Lucia He did everything. Saved Flamenco, and added to it. Great stuff. Steve Vai I love the music because it is very emotional. Not because he is so technical though, yet maybe that is why the music is so good, no? Return to Forever I really like Al's early playing. Fusion is a great style....

I guess I just do not like the Genre. I looked up everything on Wikipedia, and found that my assertions our true. All of these things can be done by a Rock Guitarist. All of the things that a turntablelist does a guitaristd already does on his guitar with his volume knobs and tone knobs. Basically, ...

This is soooooo cool man. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. I am glad that you made this post.

I wish that someone had more scales like from other parts of the world as well along with different time periods. This is cool for now though.

Thanks so much dude. :)

Its a guitar solo by Hip Hop band The Roots. And the Roots have a guitarist who is a rock guitarist. And a very good one. So when spanish said that hip hop doesn't have rock guitarists with skills, I countered with that. "I think if hip hop music were to really sound like that, then it would be cal...
