question! I saw that you played some distance apart on the fretboard the melody and solo for it. Not in the same area where you had the chords. Uh, yes the question is why so? and how this is determined ? (I'm a very beginner)

I love the videos and information being presented. Is it just me or does this gentleman sound a lot like Peewee Herman?

SimplyLimbo says:

Im Happy youtube lessons like this exist. They bring Joy, motivation, and music skills to a wide range of people. And we need new good bands ! Guitarists/musicians.
No computerbeatboxez. retarded DJ's like dj Tiesto or armin van buuren.
We need Jack Whites ! (guys who have a deep passion for the guitar)
Cobains ! (with his own vision on the guitar sound)
jimmy pages ! Slash ! Dick Dales, and many more !

thanku so much sir u made my day

Amir Lenia says:

sorry but i don't understand, why did you take B to C as a half step but not E to F as another half step too, and instead counted F# to G as the next half step !? and the other question is i still cant tell what are the limits for keeping inside a certain Scale , a G for example.

Dimit Lemekh says:
