Hi all few questions

When I play my little finger aches how can I prevent this from happening?

How do I get out of bad habits that I have taught myself as I am self taught?

No doubt been asked this many time before

Any good books that I can buy that teach basic?

I am playing a pentatonic scale for example lets say E minor do I have to start on the root of that not or can I start any where so long as it is in the scale

Sorry if I did not make sense with the last question.

work them, make them stronger

start over (doing this sucks, i know) play properly and if you see that you are playing with your bad habits slap yourself and correct it

idk

i think you start on the root note, but i dont know much about keys

The best book I've seen for begginers is "Guitar Chord Guru"

work through the finger aches if you fuss with em they just will last that much longer. bad habits are a ** (i'm also self taught) just slow down and work through em. i have never found a good beginner book i just studied scales, intervals, the circle of fifths/fourths, and learned basic chords and there structures as well as going on many different websites. the best thing you can do is just really LISTEN to music and all music don't be bias (learn songs too of course). once you get basic theory down i have many books that could be recommend but all the good books assume you know how to do and have
memorized a lot of Beginning/intermediate diatonic thinking stuff


As for the scale it depends on so much. but if it is simple three chord rock and roll it is safe to assume to start on the tonic.
