So, yeah, a while back I put and post up on Facebuoko asking if anyone had a crappy guitar they wanted to sell me. Turns out a friend who I haven't seen since college had an old Fender Telecaster rotting in his attic. He sold it to me for $40 on the sidewalk in front of Scarecrow Video, and I took the one chord I could remember since the last time I thought I had enough self-discipline to teach myself the guitar, and then my brother taught me a few more. I don't know what they are, but I know that two of them are minor chords, and that all I have been doing is practicing those four chords over and over again, and only three of them sound any good together. They are:
I've gotten to the point where I can switch between them and it sounds all right, especially when I turn up the distortion on the Music Man head and 4 x 12 cabinet I bought a few years back for $150. But here's my question—please chime in all you guitar players out there: What should I learn next? I don't really understand how all the chords and scales and everything work together. Basically, I know nothing. (That's why I've been a shitty drummer all these years.) WHAT DO I DO NOW? Learn me!
