So here's my story. I played guitar when I was younger from like 16-20 never took a lesson.....played power chords and just messed around. sold my strat rg-550 and amp for car insurance money. car and chickas was much more important at the raging hormone age. well that was 20 years ago and I said I really wanted to play bass. I went out bought a Fender jazz a couple weeks ago and a practice amp till I save up a little more for a head and cab. Monday I am getting it set up by a luthier with Lindy Fralin pups and labella flatwounds...( I wanted TIs but I couldnt get them in time for my luthier appointment....and I got a great deal on the labellas for $30 at GC in the 60% off bin) So I said before I try and learn songs I want to learn the right way and learn all the notes. (I broke that right away and learned Tom Sawyer from beginning to end! ) I have been watching youtube videos and learning the notes and doing the do ray mi's from root note to root note......does anyone have any sites or info or youtube videos on how to learn the chord notes. like off a C ...C E G C sounds great...anyone have any info how to learn all these and more? I am trying to get to intermediate level before I find a teacher. I want to get all the notes chords and runs and stuff down first. some advice would be great! thanks guys I learned so much reading this forum!
