I started using the powerchord-ish shiftable chord shapes (like 079900 to form an E with no 3rd, or 799800 to form a weird B chord) to play some songs.
I think they're kinda lame though.

lame ?? just gotta find the song to place them in ... see the 2 Dylan song extracts I did on youtube ... or stick them into Like A Rolling Stone key of E ... start on E move upto finish on A open barre chord and B open barre chord ...the one you mention ... (with chordslike those in You're A Big Girl Now inbetween) ... or, with similar chords, Who Knows Where The Time Goes

Lame because it's a bit too easy. xDD
Nevermind. :P
I put them to use in some songs where they were actually used.
I'm not gonna put the names of the songs here though. :p

After seeing that G n R's song patience was taught by Justin, I now have a song to work on.

GnR's Patience is taking me a while to master but at least it's a good challenge.

Last night I learned some new chords E7#9 and A7 which goes along perfectly with the E minor pentatonic scale.  So my teacher played the chords while I soloed and we just took turns.  How sweet the music was!  This was just too much fun.  I added a few bends here and there in the scale just for some variation.  The Vox DA5CL amp that we both have made it sound oh so fat!  Next week were going to take a go at the solo in Paranoid by Black Sabbath and that's in the E minor pentatonic scale as well.  This should be illegal cuz it's so much damned fun.

If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out by Cat Stevens

And I'm ultra excited about it. I think I can play it all pretty well if I can just get better at my G to Fmaj7 chord changes.

I also intend to spend some time trying to figure out what the hell a scale is, and go over some of the other lessons on the site.

I've been trying that, as it was suggested in the video I'm learning the song from.

But man is it not working.

If I have my pinky down on the 1st string my ring finger just doesn't naturally wanna seem to go to that top string, and vice versa.

I can play it, note for note, like that, if I REALLY try but man that is not going to come naturally.
