New to all this however I've come to the conclusion that I'm the kinda guy that needs to know how things work before it makes any sense.
I mean I can follow tab but it feels far too much like monkey see, monkey do. I don't know why my fingers are supposed to go where the tab shows. I'm sure if I could grasp that it would help.
I mean if I've got this right for an open e chord I'm playing E B E G# B E (tried to figure that out on the fly so could be wrong) Even if it's right I have no clue why those are the notes and not any others.
Any suggestions on internet resources or books or even where to start with all this.
