Maybe you’ll find my questions to Rick interesting? Rick, I know this is a relatively old presentation, but when you begin to play the spread chords it brought a question to mind. You initiated an A minor chord, and then I believe you played she triads up and down the neck, adding the major seven so forth. And then you played a D major chord. My ear heard the Lydian aspect, but normally that would occur with a C pedal point in the bass. But there was no C pedal point due to the fact that there was this ginormous a minor chord from your keyboard. Now, normally, with the tonal center of a minor as the basis, a D chord would imply a plagal four to one relationship. So, my question to you is this: when you play what you played, are you thinking of a D chord with the 5th (A) in the bass, or are you hearing the Lydian implications of a D major chord being played over C major… Or are you hearing both at the same time. And finally, would you resolve to the A tonal center by playing a minor, or perhaps even an a major chord as sort of a Picardy third, or would you resolve to G major, which in the way I hear music, would be an appropriate tonic resolution taking advantage of the F sharp sonority of the C lydian sound?

I understand the (1) hour thing, however, these music concepts take much more than an hour to comprehend. You can't squeeze into an hour what takes years to learn. I'm looking at it from a new guitar player's saturation level.

hopefully theres a reason your guitar teacher didn't teach you this yet. Its pretty basic knowledge but teaching you this stuff may confuse you tons. Its way easy.. if you're a music teacher and you know your stuff. If you're not confused by now. Relisten and study again.

Yes I am convinced of the need to learn music theory Rick has convinced me, that said the title of the video is "As much Guitar Theory I can teach in an hour". Side track rhythm, side track fingering foresight, .ect . I am impressed with his knowledge, can anyone translate piano notation to "guitar tab" examples then as you play change from one modes to the next mode as a means to acquire music improvisation?

I get frustrated fast! When I started guitar lessons in the early 90’s my guitar teacher would always jam Metallica songs before my lesson for like 3 minutes, and when I beg him to teach me how to play it he said nope, I’m not teaching you how to play songs, I’m teaching you music theory, and you will learn how to play these songs later. I’d get so frustrated! He started teaching me pentatonics right off the bat (I was 14 at the time). Long story short I still suck at music theory 😂🤣😂

@shpeen88 I started out that way too. I could tell you what chord I was playing about 40% of the time, and that's the most theory I had. I'd tried to learn theory at the start, and it just bored me to death because I had no frame of reference, nothing to mentally attach those concepts to. Once it became about understanding the things I was already playing, it became a lot more exciting.
shpeen88 Anos atrás
@Ossie Halvorson Thats very true. If I had the chance to be a teacher I'd focus on the joy. Try to find something student can jam on, right or wrong. Technique and theory can come later, new players need that instant gratification. I do too

Theory is more or less logical in nature with a good dash of interpretation. Like any logical skill, trying to build a house when you haven't even set a foundation first is going to lead to a very shaky home that threatens to collapse at any time.

I just started learning guitar a few months ago at 26 years old. I love your content Rick, I seem to easily understand this stuff. The problem is I feel like my brain is light years ahead of my fingers. I already know of so many chords and scales in my head, but I cant even physically play them all, its frustrating but motivating at the same time. I want to learn the most time efficient way possible. I just suck so bad at bar chords, muting, and using my pinky. Is this stage normal? Guess I just need to shut up and practice more.

In your section on strumming, as a beginner, I felt good that I could get the patterns quite easily. This said, I am a lefty, and there are sometimes debates, some people encouraging lefties to learn on a right handed guitar. I tried this at first, mostly because my husband had a right- handed and I could only find 1 not-very-nice left handed guitar in 8 stores in Seattle!!! (That is another discussion, for another time). If I were attempting those rhythms with my right hand, I would NEVER EVER get them. So please, I'm sure someone will debate me and mention Mark Knopfler or Elvis Costello, who were lefties that played right, but they are total exceptions. If you are a beginning lefty, get a left-handed guitar, and stores, STOCK LEFTIES!!

My favourite quote about music theory: "You've got to be able to speak the language of music if you want to be able to tell a story. You can get by without knowing too much music theory, but you're going to sound like a tourist with a phrase book."

@Jordi Moragues Massanet I'm talking about being aware of your own incompetence, accepting it and working around it to create something original. Ignorance in the creative arts is indeed empowering, how many examples do you know of how a certain individual produced a great piece of art when they had no idea what they were doing at the time? countless. There is a lot to be said about going with your gut.

@Sam Green I'm not sure ignorance is empowering, but it definitely confers confidence, as the Dunning-Kruger effect proves.

Such a load of BS, all my favourite bands probably don’t even know the names of the chords. I think the most sensitive musicians are the ones that have to play by ear, they’re not stifled by knowing too much, I think the more you know the more conventional and formulaic you become as a guitar player.

Damn, I can definitely see the value in learning music theory now. I didn't realize throwing together solos and melodies could be so damn easy if you know just a few modes, triads, and arpeggios. I've on and off experimented with song composition for the past 10 years. I had a terrible guitar setup, but I still managed to produce some rather unique tunes with it and FL Studio. No music theory, no guitar lessons, nothing. I kept it that way specifically so I could produce songs that had very limited "outside influence". I felt like they were more "pure" that way, and in a way they are. However, now that I'm running out of ideas and my fingers go to a very narrow range of shapes and notes, I think it's time to do away with that mentality and expand my knowledge. I don't think my music will ever sound like everyone else's music. Mine is unique, I've never heard anything like it before and I aim to keep it that way. However, adding music theory to my creative process should give it a huge boost.

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!

I personally think the best thing he said in this entire stream was right at the end. When he was talking about how he doesn't disrespect any artist. I think it's awesome that he's not just pushing his opinion constantly as if it should be the universal truth. It also encourages people more to perhaps listen to things with a more open mind. Music is a subjective experience an everyone's going to have their preferences. I know for me personally, when I was younger I used to be more selective with the music I even considered listening to. But as you get older you want to hear something outside your typical style simply because you just get bored in a sense. Some people can probably listen to one main genre of music their whole life and not mind, but for some, you end up wanting to broaden your taste. In no way am I implying that he didn't say anything else of value. I'm just saying I felt the last bit at the end was a good bit of wisdom that's not too common. As for the rest of the video, all good stuff. I've been playing guitar for 15+ years. Pretty much everything he talked about I already knew. But the truth is I still watch stuff like this because there's still things I can learn. For instance, there's plenty of guitar/music things I sometimes just forget about because it might not be something I use daily. An it's nice to have an arsenal of ticks up your sleeve when writing music. Sometimes the song won't always need certain things, but it's nice to have the knowledge at your fingertips. For me, I generally write anything from very basic rock songs to prog metal. So, I don't usually use too many phrygian modes in 9/8 in a typical rock song, but I do use that kind of stuff when I write the progressive stuff. My point is learn the things necessary to fit your needs. An once you reach that point and you feel you'd like to learn a bit more, go for it. If you're a folk singer song writer, you probably don't need to learn four part writing rules. But there's always more you can add to your arsenal if you want. Whether it's music theory, guitar technique or even something completely different.

First let me say that I have huge respect for Mr Beato, and I am amazed at the depth of his knowledge and proficiency. But I can't help but wonder how many of the "rock" bands with hit 4 chord songs knew music theory and the guitar at this level 🤔? It almost seems like needing to be an aeronautical engineer or rocket scientist to fly a plane. I guess it comes down to how deep you want to go . Song writer vs composer? Automotive engineer vs a mechanic? Architect vs carpenter. It would be really interesting to know how "deep" in music theory most rock guitarists are. Before "tab" I know many could not read music which is another can of worms.

One reason I love playing guitar is that my brain just switches off when I play. It's totally relaxing and I'm just in the zone. I'm not even sure I want to learn a load of theory and know all about keys and mixalodian scales, etc. I just copy by ear what's being played or I jam around it whatever I like. Sure I make mistakes and never play the same thing twice, but free improv with no technical thinking is just a blast, just like whistling or singing. For those with a lot of music theory - does it feel totally free and natural like that for you too? Or is your logical/theory/ thinking brain involved too? Can you pick and choose and play both ways - the technical thought out way and the free automatic way?

Rick, I'm about 15 months younger than you are, but your reaction to turning 59 absolutely mirrored my reaction to turning 58. Holy cow - how did this happen????? :-) I honestly have no complaints, though - it's a good life.

Positivety...the greatest word uttered in this incredible video! I can honestly say this video cut through all the bull and went straight to the heart of music itself. A lucrative and in depth study for which I am grateful to have watched! Thank you Rick and Happy Birthday sir!! I hope you live to 100!! I secretly yearn to learn from you for forty more years👍🏻

THink how many VHS tapes you would have had to rent to get something this concise and comprehensive in the old days. Before too long, we're going to hear of various bands say they learned important lessons and got inspired on this channel. If I had taken this route on guitar when I was 15, I'd be 100x better and possibly had a career. As a songwriter, though, I gotta say the muscle to flex along with playing an instrument is thinking of phrases constantly, and then singing them to the music that comes into your head. Doing both of those musical acts at the same time, improvising music following words, is actually the basis of how songwriting teams have always worked, although some famous stars have merged both roles, thus becoming the fables singer/songwriter. The reason I mention this is it's easy to get stuck in a place where the music is all driven by instrumentalists, and then singers have to be exceptional to riff on top of music and have it be great. Case in point, Led Zeppelin. However, if you aren't or can't find a great vocalist like Robert Plant, you can still write compelling songs words first, letting the music you play seep into the process. Just saying I had a much harder time writing songs riffs first, versus words first. although both go better once you keep flexing the combo writing muscle.

Happy belated 59th, Rick! I missed the last promo so glad to catch both Beato Book and Ear Training Program this round! Perfect for me, getting back into guitar and other musical things. Your vids are produced well, topics are enjoyable and timely. Happy to throw some money in, learn, and support the cause!
