Started music lessons again today. This time with Scott Manring at String Studios by the Blind Tiger. The man can make two notes on a guitar sound like a thing of indescribable beauty.
I walked away today realizing I need to learn how to “see” chords on the guitar in terms of the notes on the scale. I’ve always thought of chords as shapes: the major shape, the minor 7th shape. Instead, Scott showed me how to see the notes within those chords, and what fingerings are actuall flatting the fifth, the seventh, and so on.
Hm. I’m glad he took notes for me.
