I didn't think it was too bad. Perhaps it would be more sensible in a live environment. I'm trying to underscore the aural properties of a few of the individual tones in a scale. That way, what you learn in one scale applies to the others: you hear not only the differences, but also the similarities. You can forget about all of the terminology if it makes it easier, but I encourage internalizing the sound of the individual tones of a scale (particularly in relationship to each other). Half of what I do on the guitar is by ear. I'm only fluent with the note names on the fretboard for a couple of strings, and the rest is harmonic thinking. If my previous post looked like a bunch of jargon, do check out Soldini's book - it's quite different from my own methods and may be of great assistance.
