Kind of a double edged sword. My mathematical abilities are far above average; even my calculus professor was amazed at my ability to punch numbers into a calculator while performing other calculations in my head (I never showed my work!!)As far as music goes, I think all humans have the ability to understand music, often referred to as the "universal language." The ability to play the guitar (or to suck like I do) depends more upon mechanical ability and dexterity than actual musical ability....

The videos are of the maestro demonstrating what you need to practice; there are no suggestions (none needed.) He is demonstrating how to practice and what to practice. You then incorporate what is in the video into the Daily Practice Routine.

I try to do as much as I can, but as a beginner, I tend to focus on the basics of motion, meaning I do a LOT of trills, ladders, spider, chromatic scales, etc... which tend to help me build dexterity, strength, speed, accuracy, and flexibility. I also work with a metronome whenever possible. IF you don't have one yet, get one that is LOUD. I have a small electronic one and I can't hear the damn thing unless my amp is almost turned completely down.

Okay, forget blues progressions.I have memorized the PB 14 position scale position system in the key of G. Chromatically, G sharp is the next key. As the maestro, do you want me to memorize the other 11 keys in any particular order?

Tres bien!Now, keep on practicing. After hundreds of hours, your hand will be much more relaxed and your movement will become much more precise.

Go to the main page, click on Lesson PDF/MP3 Files, the first link is Guitar Lessons PDF, 3/4 of the way down there is the PDF file download link for the 5 position. You should be able to download about 90% of the links on this page.

As I cannot edit my post:I have pretty much found my answer in another PB video. Practice EVERYTHING!!!!!!I moved into doing scales and such because I thought my spiders and such were coming along quite well.
