    Great! How would one best use these scales to become a better blues player?

    Yes, the earth is round and the sky is blue

    Yes, I have a YouTube channel (No advertising and no monetary purposes)

    And I want to make it known altruistically by the world

    Problem with that...?

    Does it bother you that a very professional guitarist with 67 years of age can make his work known ...?

    I watched the first video....a little constructive criticism coming up.

    I think it would be helpful for beginners if you were to put the tab up with the notes for each scale. If I were a beginner, I would be lost not knowing where you're at on the neck and just the notes on the the video. I would move on to another video.

    I do like how you get right into the scales without the long intro of talking for 5 minutes like a lot of the YouTube videos! No nonsense and get right to business!

    Just my .02 cents.

    Wow. I had the impression that the three thumbs-up emoticons he put in his post meant that @fattboyzz appreciated your post.

    @onacarom,
    Since these are billed as technical exercises rather than actual pieces of music produced by you,
    perhaps it might be more appropriate to place them in the 'Tab & Music' sub-forum.
    https://www.strat-talk.com/forums/tab-music-forum.15/
    Right now i'm getting a message from YT that the playlist does not exist, so either the links are faulty
    or you have taken the material down.

    i do enjoy your music posts also, but again a small suggestion:
    possibly make a single dedicated thread where you will post all of your actual tunes.
    This is what at least some of us who post a lot of music here do.

    Personally, i find it easier to follow one thread.
    Just a thought...
    :)

    Wow have an attitude much? He was just trying to verify if this was your work or you were posting a link to someone else's stuff. I was going to check out your link but considering your response to a simple question I won't be viewing any of your stuff.
