I’m slowly incorporating some guitar theory into my stringed instrument-playing hobby, since I have rediscovered my affection for the “plugged in sound.”

I’m finding Desi Serna’s Fretboard Theory easy on the brain and very helpful for the perennial guitar hobbyist who lacks formal theory training, like myself.

Deep Purple’s Jon Lord’s passing the other day reminded me of Desi’s Smoke on the Water treatment, where he suggests using the G minor pentatonic scale, so as to not over-complicate things.
