Thought of you as like me you like playing your guitarWhiter Shade of Pale is one of mine as well, they did a long version which i have on my player. I remember they played in the local college and we sat outside and listened only a few could get in because was such a small venue was great though.
Hi Chesham I learnt a fair amount of music theory and how scales are formed, the thing that help me alot was the circle of fifths i found out how one can switch from scale to scale and back again if need be, also i learnt chromatics and whole tones, and for outside effects the diminished and augmented scale. I dont noddle much but did learn load of licks and solos when i first started plus loads of chords.Thought of you as like me you like playing your guitar
My brother put me on to this great on line app called Fretastic and its free too. You need to register to get the full benefit such as the free backing tracks. All the different types of Scales to practice with .
The youtube Clip that my brother sent meThe chap on the video is very genuine and has nothing to do with Fretastic other than he found it useful.
The Backing Tracks are really good and of course you can see the Scale underneath
Enjoy having a Noodle session with the various Backing Tracks and Scales
Some good Programs on BNC Radio Six (Guitar Greats) that you might likeHi Chesham I learnt a fair amount of music theory and how scales are formed, the thing that help me alot was the circle of fifths i found out how one can switch from scale to scale and back again if need be, also i learnt chromatics and whole tones, and for outside effects the diminished and augmented scale.

I try now to make my own songs up i use my ears alot and just string various peices together that seem to sound right and hope some folks may like them.
That is good though that video as he says dont just play the scales make licks and songs from them, otherwise your playing can sound like scales only maybe. Good Luck!! with your playing btw.
There are some very good documentaries on Radio Six. I usually download them and listen on my Iphone when I am on my morning walk along the river. There is a good series called The First Time, with various people from Music Artists to record producers. Tom Robinson also has some good guests that he interviewsHi Chesham I have loads of music stored getting on for 2000 different bands i love listening to prog rock some of those old bands were really great.
I get loads off utube, and have amazon hd also some good stuff on their as well, yes some players have a knack of getting a good tune even with playing a little sloppy. one can know loads of chords but some times a few moved around the neck can sound really cool.
But Thanks!! for the above is nice to know.
