I was hoping that buying this course would help clear up some confussion that I have developed latelly. On the one hand, I have watched all these videos on learning modes, scales, arpeggios, how to change betwen major and minor, using the notes in chords, playing the 1- 4 -5 chords. Then not only here but in some other videos I have seen on you tube, I am shown that what I thought was improvising was all wrong. The best way to learn how to solo is learn many many licks and shuffle them around to make up a nice solo. So my confusion is that if it all comes down to gathering and learning all these licks....that are already put together, why in the world do we put so much effort into learning about scales and modes and on and on. It seems that once I have developed the skill set to play the licks with hammer ons and slides etc...then its just a matter of learning licks. Can some one help clear this up for me pease????
