    1. I am currently reading a book on arpeggios by Stephan Ross.In the book he says "the ability to move around the neck fluently through all of the arpeggios forms provides greater creative freedom and leads to more interesting lines". It also said to use what you know, so he wouldn't be concerned about you using two scale shapes. In the book he is using the 5 pentatonic patterns. It is a beginner book, so I assume he is trying to keep it simple and not over whelming. One of my books listed about 35 shapes and the caged system as must know. It doesn't even mention arpeggios and the first

      Looks like a good source for scales and chords. https://gosk.com/scales/
    4. Eric had me a bit confused when he said flat 3rd. It finally "set in" what he was saying. This explanation was new to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN5LtuWxKbI
    5. I like the previous post. I would find out what songs he likes. Then I would use the Learn and Master course; (its not an older persons course). I would also use Hal Leonard method books 1, 2and 3 and Mel Bay method books 1, 2, 3, and 4. (expanded edition) I would “cherry pick“ those courses for the best lesson material.I would also insert songs he likes in place of some of the “open domain songs” those songs kids wouldn’t like.I would also pick up Alfred's "Teach Yourself To Read Music" only because it does seems to show how to “count notations“ better than most. A topic confusing
    6. Born James Wesley Voight.Yes, his brother is actor Jon Voight.
    7. Stine talks about his first solo where he learned about combining major and minor pentatonic. He talks about going up one fret to enter the major pentatonic. Brian, over at active melody always talked about going down 3 frets. I never even thought about going up. I never heard of stine’s on-line lessons, but I did read that he had 750,000 subscribers world wide. One of his lessons had over 7 million viewers. I think he charges $69 a year about the same as Brian. Looks like another on-line “pandemic proof” teacher with a 6 figure income.
    8. In this Chet Ackins song is there a wha wha pedal at work? I know he used one, I am assuming in the 1950s they might have sounded different. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3p_B7S98Jw
    9. $$$$$ nice guitar, if I was younger I would be saving my money. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5IBkLs6tOI
