    Hello Steve, Question: When you teach that the shape of the scale is the same for any key on the fret-board, to me that assumes that you pick a key starting from the root note on the 6th string. But what confuses me is the shape of the scale is not the same if you start on a root note from a different string other than the 6th string. Am I correct in what I am saying and how do I solve this problem? Thank you. Bill johnston

    For the first time in my life, I understand why an A# and a Bb are the same thing, and it depends what key you are in. Wow. I never understood the comment "it depends what key you are in." I fricking get it!

    Does this work the same 3-4 and 7-8(1) if you start with a sharp note say C#, so C# D# E# F# G# A# B# C#?I know that E# is F and B# is C but in theory it has to be written like this so we only have one of each letter? Another little question can you start a scale with a flat(b)?

    Thanks, Steve!
    You make learning the guitar fun. A friend is teaching me how to play a 5-string Bass… with 5th string tuned to B. Your way of teaching the fretboard has de-mystified the whole learning prosses for me. Now I'm able to connect the dots and see that it's the same string as on the guitar – just a different octave and the notes on the B string are all the same no matter if it's the 5th string on a Bass or the 2nd string on a guitar. And about connecting those dots–I turned 53yrs old in June '17, and have struggled with learning and understand music theory for about half of my life, just to give up on pursuing any type of instrument. But I must say that this is no longer the case… I just needed someone like you to really open my mind's eye to it. So thanks for offering such a valuable resource.

    Great! You're simply great! There's only a little thing to say…it's Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La-Si(pronounce like "C")-Do. I teach as well and I like to find some new and simply way to explain a concept. I think you are a very good teacher! 🙂
