    1. Scott,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Glad you like it.

      I was a little afraid it might have been too comprehensive for a lot of people, a little overwhelming maybe, but I think starting with the basic pentatonic box was a way to grounding it by starting with something most people are familiar with.

      I've been quite quiet because of work lately, but subscribe, or follow me on facebook if you want some more resources, because there's lot's more stuff to come when I can get my head down again and write some resources again.

  8. Great job Rob! I finally understood it. You must have put in a lot of work. Thanks!

  9. Again Rob, just to reiterate what everyone has mentioned; tremendous detail and patient build up in the explanation. I just need to go over the major pentatonic again - the minor pentatonic was great to absorb to understand better.
    Thanks again

  10. Rob, I just found your material; now I need to buy a guitar. But, I wanted to explore notes and scales first. This is great material and I'll be back. Question: Is there a missing b3 on the page 15, position 2 illustration?

  11. This is the best. Finally someone explains what everything means and why! It has driven me nuts that no one has been able to explain the underpinnings of things like thirds and fifths. I'm finally beginning to understand music! Thanks a lot!
