perhaps i am the same as you ive been playing for some time also but i cant play lead.Ive just started learning and practicing scales also.perhaps because im not really musically minded i didnt know much about them.Its the fact that my friend plays lead in our band that has spurred me to do this and try to get more up to his level cuz im just playing rythmm in the band my ultimate goal is to shred see if i can achieve it in the next few years.

paulg1630,

I feel ya man. I've scoured the web for ways to break my own plateau, and found two other programs that have a lot to offer. However, I'm leaning heavily on PlaneTalk as it seems to make more sense.

Have you seen the three Chord Tone Melody lessons I put together? The first one is here, follow links from there to the other two.

That's a good start ...

Kirk,

Thanks. Went through all three. As expected, it leaves out many details, but does offer a glimpse to your approach. It is appealing.

...What specifically, would you like to know about it?


Honestly? an explanation of what it is and how it works... maybe pics of patterns??? I understand power chords and open chords. I'm imagining that if I play an 'A' power chord at the fifth fret that I'd play only those notes covered by my fingers? Yes? But I also think this method more limiting than knowing scales, so I'm betting my imagination is incorrect.

Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Rick
