    Music Theory

    Scales, formation of chords, theories.

    For where to start?

    I'd start with simple reading.
    Know your notes: Staff wise and on the instrument.
    Then personally I'd reccomend intervals.
    Guni has a great lesson on this posted in the learn articals.

    That's my suggestion as far as Theory goes.
    Overall you want to focus on at least 3 things.
    1) Techincal things (finger ex. chord changes etc.)
    2) Theory (scales, chords etc.)
    3) Ear training. (sight singing, interval recogintion.)

    Theses are broad catagories with lots of over lap.
    But start small and simple with the basics.

    Thank you, Bash!

    I have a good technique with the fingers (speed, scales, chords...), but nothing of the theory.

    These two last topics (2 and 3) I had interested me you very I can say more to me or teach something to me on theory (scales, chords etc.) and ear training (sight singing, interval recogintion.)

    Thanks

    There are several sites that have great information--this is one of them. Others include:

    www.beginningguitar.com
    www.wholenote.com
    www.guitarists.net
    www.jazclass.com

    The last of these sites offers a rather complete music theory course on CD (all in English only) for $30 USD. Most of the information that it contains can be found at www.ibreathemusic.com, however. Hope this helps.

    Hi Joćo Paulo,

    Well, I recommend you have a look at this article of mine about intervals. Intervals are the building blocks of scales so I guess this is a good start.

    Give me a shout if ya have any questions?

    I am not quite sure I understand your first question.

    But Arpeggios are just the notes from a chord played as a line instead of all at once. So, if you read Guni's Article on chords and know how to make chords, then you also know how to make arpeggios.

    I'm not quite sure either....

    If you are looking for some info about scales and arpeggios you could download my old articles from this thread: http://www.ibreathemusic.com/forums/...s=&threadid=11

    Otherwise, please be more specific and we'll do our best.
