Reading Music, but not

I found this gem on Facebook today and HAD to write about it.  I have to write about it because given that I can’t read sheet music well at all, my melodic emoting is barely discernible if I try to put it on paper.

You see, THIS is my alphabet:  E, A, G, B, E

and then they get crazy on you and ask you to play in the Am, but don’t mistake the major notes in that scale for minor ones. Playing songs in the Am does not necessarily mean that the Bm or the Em will be present. Confused? Yeah me too.

Anyway, enjoy this diddy about something guitarists never use. May this enlighten you!
