New Lesson and Pending Article

Hey everyone! You should definitely check out my newest lesson, All About Scales Part 1 - The Chromatic Scale!

This lesson is the first in a series that will discuss many types of commons scales examine the theory behind them, how to build them, how to build their chords, and much more!

Also, keep on the lookout for a new article that is pending right now! It's entitled 10 Essential Concepts and Tips Every Guitar Player Should Know!

I am already in the process of creating the next lesson in my series, which is going to cover the basics of the major scale.

The Creation of my Official Teaching Career

Current mood: excited

Over the last few months I have been busy working on the basis for my guitar services company. After much thought, I have decided to get the gears rolling and start operating. I would like to introduce my business, ThorCat Music.

The name is a play on my last name and a nickname given to me by my family. "Thor" comes from my last name, which means "son of Thor" in Norwegian. And the cat comes from my nickname.

My company is offering individualized private guitar lessons as well as professional session guitar work.

I am please to announce that within the next few months, my website will be up and running!

At this time, I would also like to mention that I have a new lesson up here on UG, and you can find it here: Intervals in Depth

kicking off the teaching career

Current mood: energetic

With the adding of my newest lesson on dealing with writer's block, I have decided to take the next step in my personal life to obtain something I have wanted for many years. Being a guitar teacher has been in my planning for quite some time, and I have been going back and forth with it. Finally, I am going to give it a shot. I feel that after my many years of playing that I have amassed enough knowledge to pass on to others.

This weekend I will be creating and posting my first ads on craigslist and in the local music stores around my city. Similarly, I will continue to post lessons on here in the future. So anyone who stumbles across my UG page, feel free to ask me anything you want about playing guitar and I will gladly do my best.

Also, suggest to me lessons you would like to see.

I hope that my career as a teacher will eventually yield great rewards.

enlightenment

Current mood: apathetic

after playing for a decade by the seat of my pants, i started looking into tthe theory behind the music i was creating. after so many years of "that sounds good, but i don't know why" i started getting bored.
 
the other day i finally got the hang of figuring out chords from scales, and am also starting to recognize what the chords are called without having to go back and forth comparing formulas. it fealt wonderful.
 
my next step is memorizng the CO5, which is almost there. i know the order or sharps and flats (thanks to some helpful mnemonics) i just need to get the hang of not having to use it.
 
i don't know. it's bringing me lots of joy.
 
need to fix and sell my halfstack. but i don't have the money to take it to a tech
