comment Learning Guitar by hearing
First, those vids were not improvisational as such. They weren't playing by ear - they had learnt those songs beforehand ;) The thing about jamming, is that the inspiration comes from either within you, other people you're playing with, or music that you're listening to. You can jam over the top of other people's records, or get some backing tracks.

accepted “slash” chords, e.g. B/F♯ - are these only for inversions, or can any note be the bass note?

Thanks. When I see F/G I think that it could be written as Fadd9 or Fadd9/G, and C/G♯ could be written as G#maj7♯5. But you're saying that if a G♯maj7♯5 is functioning as a C chord in a progression, then it can be better to write it as C/G♯ ?

The sharp and flat symbols are part of unicode: fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/266f/index.htm You can find them in windows "char map" program and then copy them into any text box. Or look at this page: fileformat.info/tip/microsoft/enter_unicode.htm

comment How to hide a flat pick in the right hand when switching to finger picking, Warren Haynes style
Thanks, very helpful. As I mentioned in my own answer, this is also how Joe Bonamassa does it
