Just wow Hunter very well put together the simplistic approach really lays it out flat to see it for what it is and the piano reference is a very powerful visualization I’ve been playing guitar 15 and only through the last 5 tried to break through my self taught habits I’m going to watch all of your videos now got a new sub keep it up man

You just made everything click for me! Thank you for this simple, free lesson. You rock!?

James Dietrich says:

Wow…I took lessons off and on with teachers teaching by ear, for months, and I was always asking about stuff like this. Like, why scales? What makes a note "in" a type of scale, and why do chords work, and why only certain ones together? This series explains all that in fairly simple terms. If you actually go through the exercise with Hunter later in the series of building a major scale, you'll understand the whole thing, front to back, and have a great grasp of the building blocks artists use to make songs, how they're shaped, and what fits well together.

Thanks so much for this!
