Rick, I'm self taught. I figured out most of the muting stuff on my it weird though that I've learned to strum many of the chords though to not hit the muted strings? I often strum power chords while only hitting the 3 strings.

I avoided learning theory for twenty years. You’re lying to yourself if you think learning theory will hurt your creativity. Creativity improves immediately. Imagine someone trying to type a novel, but they don’t know English. They’ll get some random words sometimes, and maybe even accidentally memorize some basic words through trial and error. But they will never type Shakespeare or Hemingway. Maybe like 5 people have been truly great without learning theory or learning it at some point. 5.

Hello, love your channel but I have a question and I don't know where to ask, so I'll try here where the title is about guitar lessons. I noticed Roger Waters played his Rickenbacker bass (I think it was a Rickenbacker. It was early 70's) with a pick behind the pickup cover so he only had a few inches to maneuver his right hand. Is this normal and is it hard to do?

Dude, you can NEVER teach enough guitar theory in one hour:). There's too much theory in you for one continuous month, to say nothing of one continuous week, or one continuous day. You're a treasure on here. Stay true:)

My Mel Bay Guitar Method (Circa 1969) stressed keeping the thumb behind the neck. Yes it is baloney! On my piano the old school admonished to hold down a piano key for the full count as written but finger legato cripples your hands & has since been debunked too. That's what the sustain pedal is for!

Music theory is a great way of analyzing things that pop into your head without it. 90% of classic rock musicians can't even read music. But it's indispensible if you want to play in a jazz duo at the Holiday Inn. It's like the musical version of art history. "This is how the masters did it." OK, but music is 50% inspiration and 50% perspiration. Take away the former and there are no songs. Of course Rick never looks down on people.

YES, YOU are right. Teachers who work only in classical music (classical guitar in this case) say many "strange" things 😜 😁 I try combine many styles of music on many different guitars, for example I learn on classical guitar and yes I realy try to do this as classical teacher told me = put fingers very carefully, thumb behind... so on. But! I want to play also 😁 Rock, Country, Meshuggah... 😁 and I have unfortunatelly very small "chinese" hand 😁 If I want to for example use my thumb and mute strings I need some way to do this my small hand and very short fingers 😁 I was very lucky becouse acoustic guitar which I bought has very thin neck (and small box) 😁 and now I may learn from my MASTER John Frusciante who use his thumb a lot!!! 😁 Of course I don't pay here so much attention to "right corner of my fingers" 😜 😁 It is also BEAUTIFUL ❤ 😁 Thank YOU very much for lesson ❤ 😁

Got it thanks for the deal. Been toying with learning the guitar since I was 14. Now that I'm 37 now seems like a good time. I want to learn to play, but even more attractive to me is to understand music. Looking forward to working through your material and actively using your videos instead of just watching them for fun := )

I got the Beato Book. Not too happy. I thought it was going to be explained in a way easy to understand. I used other methods and I was able to follow but this one on the 4th or 5th page is already very cumbersome. I love Rick's channel but I was expecting much more from the book.

As a person who learned classical guitar, I can say that it is the spanish/classical teachers who tell you to put your thumb on the middle of the back of the fret board. They also teach to barre across the whole fret board, and keep your left hand fingers as perpendicular to the fret board as possible. Generally speaking, classical guitars have deeper and wider fret boards than steel strung guitars, and this makes it difficult to reach around the whole fret board (especially for someone like me who has relatively small hands). But you very rarely 'strum' guitar in classical, even flamenco is selective about the strings you pluck. I actually find my (limited) classical training gets in the way when I'm trying to play anything else.

I used your amazing discount and got the new Beato Book. I bought the first one (I think) that was photocopied, back when you first started. This is a thing of beauty, Rick, along with the ear training! I am so glad I have been able to support the channel all these years. And I can't wait for the modes mug. Anyone else have a hard time getting out of Mixolydian and Lydian?! I could only read music briefly in college when I got a minor in classical guitar, but I really am going to do my best to go through this book over the next few years, for a little each day so it really sticks. I just couldn't do it with the hand written one, no offense, but the staff has always been a weak spot for me! This thing looks really nice and slick. My college guitar teacher would get so irritated because my memory was so good (while my spatial skills really aren't), it was hard for me to ever master sight reading because after a few times through a Bach Etude, my 19 year old brain would just know it. I'm 47 now and thanks to you, Ben Eller, and Andy Wood, I can finally finish my music/guitar education properly--and with a lot more fun. I think the only class where I ever got a great lecture about intervals was my sight reading class, which was terrifying enough, so it just never stuck. Meanwhile Andy Wood has made me see the guitar in a fundamentally different (and a lot easier) way in just a few short months. I am a really bookish guy but the way I was taught music made it seem so complex, I just always wrote/learned everything by ear. I could always hear a 5th or a 7th, I just didn't know what to call it. I guess you could say..I was just in the woods with no map the entire time--I was just lucky enough to have flashlight ears and dexterous hands to find the cool plants. Now I can see the forest, the city, the interstate--I just have to keep locking it into my muscle memory. Thanks for all you do!
