Learning guitar scales nearly drove me crazy.
The whole process was long frustrating and to tell you the truth, at first, I just didn’t see the point of it.
You see, when I first started learning guitar all i wanted to do was to play my favorite songs. I had no interest in learning the background theory. I way a D.I.Y guitarist doing it all by myself, not one of those fancy kids with their music lessons.
Learning all the modes, theory and scales really wasn’t for me.
To be perfectly honest…
- I didn’t want to waste time memorizing boring note combinations or dull sets of sounds repeated over and over again.
- I didn’t understand how I could use them
- Scale diagrams might as well have been in Chinese
