Night Owl Scared of Music theory? Faggggedaboudit! (120* d) RE: Scared of Music theory? Faggggedaboudit! 03 Dec 01


Just want to report back in here......I took a "recess" and went out to play. The group I was with included a Hammered Dulcimer player.....WONDERFUL music etc. I took with me new information from this thread which was useless tonight for my guitar playing (premature). BUT I was given a brief lesson on how to play a simple scale on the HD......and GUESS WHAT....I PLAYED A CHORD!! Starting from what he said was "Do", I played..(both hands!!) 1,3,5,8(?) AND it sounded NEAT!!! (Wondering why 8 isn't included in the info here?) Anyway, thank you guys!!! and paragraphs 5, 6 in Peter T.'s post are part of my problem here. BUT, I'm gonna hang in......remembering how Peter struggled to learn Modal tuning stuff a while ago. I CAN play guitar, have been playing for thirty years now. I know a bunch of chords, finger-picking patterns and strumming patterns, have a fairly good ear and am a solid rythym guitar player in groups. But like many others here, I learned from chord charts; playing with other people; listening and watching and some tablature. Dunno why it's important to me NOW to learn this stuff...just IS! (AND I feel really dumb with this stuff!!!!)

I do have a favor to ask before I go study..when you all are writing info that has more than one # in it, could you space between them??? found it hard here to count them up in some of the posts.
