Re: New Too
You know, it's a very strange thing. I've heard that about scales often, yet I play a large amount of jazz, rock, rock and roll, reggae, bluebeat, pop and even almost classical to the satisfaction of the various groups I play with, yet I virtually never play or practice any scales. I use arpeggios extensively, and they make a sound like what I believe to be proper music. Neither are they particularly flashy arpeggios...oh well.
Enjoy it, however you do it.
