Great lesson man. Really enjoying these!!! This might sound like a stupid question but is there a specific reason it's in sharps going down the neck and flats going back up? And is that always the case when travelling up and down the neck?

    Good question, and the answer is just teaching simplicity. Whether notes are sharps or flats is based 100% on what key the music is in, so when there's no specific key, it's just "convenience" or "familiarity."

    I think Papa chose to use both just to generate familiarity with new students.

    Okay. Yeah, that makes sense. Thank you very much for your reply. Guitar is hard. Lol. But I'm getting there and I feel like I'm in the right place.
