Good vibes dude! Just having fun is the most important thing. Making the transition from percussion to stringed instruments was/is a hell of a ride for me, and it's hard walking around the city now without a guitar or ukulele to accompany meself.

Nice.  I used to be a G major whore then stuck more with F sharp major, and now I'm digging A flat major.  D deminished is fun as fuck though, gotta love deminished keys!

Diminished isn't a key.  I prefer playing stuff that doesn't stick to keys but rely on tonal centers more.

God them snooty fucking guitarist gotta always come out and try to flaunt some wicked thoery on our asses.  Fuck that modulation rules fuck your tonality.  Go jerk of to Coltrane and rip some fucking Dorian over A minor in I, III, V, VII, II, IV, VI, progression.  It'll break your heart and make you realize some things. 

Oh yeah what's your opinion on voice leading? Not too many guitarist apply it, it's very difficult to accomplish correctly and on the fly.  I just feel no one really appriciates thought threw music that makes melodic and rythmic sense.  Most compostions today sound like gregorian chants, what with the constant fifths and G major whoring.  But when people here voice leading they seem turned off as if it almost flows to well.  I don't know, no one appriciates what an amazing thing the understanding of music is and how complex it really is, but yet so simple.  I rising third can bring a tear to my eye at the right moment and a diminished chord can shatter my soul, thats power right there. 

Vibes man, strings, connections, theories of all existance, just vibes

And we know how to fuck with them, we musicians have a true gift, a deeper understanding of the vibrations all around us

Fuck you and your guitar though

:ilold: You mad bro?  I didn't flaunt any theory, merely corrected you.  If you can't take it then don't talk about shit you don't understand.  I play all kinds of music but focus on tonal centers right now because it develops the ear better and makes one a better guitarist.

Guy has no idea what he's saying. I knew it was bullshit when he asked for favorite key....... never heard a guitarist say that before.

If anything he's the one attempting to flaunt his understanding of theory but he's failing miserably at it.

The only reasons I know as much as I know, which really is miniscule compared to what there is to know, is because I take lessons from an accomplished jazz/studio guitarist.  On my own I enjoy learning fingerstyle arrangements a lot but really I try to learn a little bit of everything but I know there are some ways of playing that I would've never thought to do without what I've learned from him.

Of course in the end all that matters is that you sound good and you enjoy playing. Theory is merely a tool to help in understanding music.  The way you phrase your music and perform is personal.

I just bought a bunch of books with tabs and cds and started trying to learn blues and old country style finger picking tunes....... I can play tons of easy little tunes, know jack shit about theory and cant read any sheet music.

Blues is a good place to start because the pentatonic scale fits over a lot of different chords.  I would start by learning the minor pentatonic is all positions.  Then those same exact notes make up the minor pentatonic but the root changes.  For example, if you're playing C Major pentatonic it has the same exact notes as A Minor pentatonic because A is the relative minor of C.

Once you know the concept of relative minors it expands your playing a lot.  Then there's the Major(Ionian Mode) and the the Minor(Aeolian mode).  Again the same applies.  C major has the same notes as A minor. 

The circle of fifths is a nice quick reference to figuring out relative minors.

You sound like one of those people who play in a bunch of uncommon keys not because you're good at it or it sounds nice, but because you want to be able to flaunt your ability to play in keys that are uncomfortable for most stringed instruments.

Also, capo's are for cheating faggots.
