comment How to use delay with distortion/overdrive and/or a crunchy amp?
You should know the difference between analog and digital delay. In my experience digital delay is cleaner reflecting the exact sound and analog will add modulation. You can control the modulation to get wild sounds on the delayed note. If you are looking for exact duplication, use digital delay.

comment How does fusion guitar playing work?
I call it Confusion. I'm not a fan of fusion, it has no soul to me. I really believe it is technically gifted players with an eccentric sense of melody.

comment Why does the following chord progression sound good?
I agree it the Bmaj7 gives it a darker sound, but it sounds like it resolves there also.

comment When learning a song on guitar by ear, how do you find the chord placements?
It is experience. Look at sheet music for Stairway to Heaven and recognize the chord shapes that can be used on the fretboard. You will hear other songs that use similar shapes and actually recognize it by ear.

comment Guitar learning path for beginners
I taught hundreds of students from 5 to 72 years old. The last thing they want is theory. Yes I would want them to know theory, but I would lose the student. They want to play songs. Always reference the songs and explain how it works from a theory point of view when they can at least play some of the song.

It is very wrong. There is so much bad info out there. I get lead sheets like that all the time!
