So I have posted a few times already mentioning that I have been playing for a while, but don't have the technical prowess to show. I have had a couple of teachers, but didn't stay too long with them. The thing that was a recurring theme, was me getting back to basics. When I say basics they have said to master my scales and know them like the back of my hand (know how many sharps/flats in them). For the more basic scales I know them for example: F - one flat aka Bb, A - three sharps: G#, F#, C#, G - one sharp: F#, etc. When it comes to the more difficult scales F#, C#, etc, I have to fumble through them. Then when it comes to the arpeggios it is the same thing for those scales. I am looking for a course and a good place to start so that I can get better. I haven't had that light bulb moment when it comes to improvisation, and trying to figure this out. I have a couple Jamey Aebersold books, but was looking into another program. The biggest thing about the other program it is very expensive ($400), for the complete program. Thanks in advance for the advice.
