Yes yes yes I get it. Ive had it. what I'm saying is I referred to it as the first position because it's closest to the first fret, which is the first position on the guitar, besides an open string. I understand that it's technically not the first position

Which resulted in confusion. If you know the proper terms, use them in future. Music theory is confusing enough without renaming things arbitrarily.

I didn't know the proper term until y'all said something but I get it now. I was just explaining why I referred to it as the first position.

blastingas10 -

As for having two chord progressions in one piece... did you ever consider that that the piece might, you know, MODULATE during different sections?

And yes, guitarists and most other musicians (maybe not a triangle / cowbell player, for example) have things called "first position" and "second position". They're very particular about these names. If you don't know a name for something, you're better off saying "the one that goes like this" and give a long-ass explanation of it rather than trying to name it something that means something short and 'obvious' to you.

There may be rhyme and reason behind why these patterns are called these names and in these orders, but they may not. Either way, it's standardized to a point where educated people use them to reference in discussion, practice, and teaching.

And also, you make it blatantly obvious on that one quote of "I can play a minor in C and it sounds fine" that you're new to music (at least theory). These two scales have the same pitches - C D E F G A B C or A B C D E F G. The only difference is what you'd call each note as far as numbers in reference to the scale you are playing. But yes, both would work.

Other scales that'd work just as easily -

C Ionian - C D E F G A B C (just like C Major)
D Dorian - D E F G A B C D
E Phrygian - E F G A B C D E
F Lydian - F G A B C D E F
G Mixolydian - G A B C D E F G
A Aeolian - A B C D E F G A (just like a minor)
B Locrian - B C D E F G A B

And not to mention the pentatonic scales -

C D E G A C
D E G A C D
E G A C D E
G A C D E G
A C D E G A

F G A C D F
G A C D F G
A C D F G A
C D F G A C
D F G A C D

Notice that these scales all share one important quality - 0 sharps; 0 flats.

Just like your wonderfully precious C Major. And yes, this whole concept will relate to other keys too. So have fun and frolic, learned bastingas10.

Well I'm not that new to music but I am pretty new to theory. I'm sorry if I offended anyone by referring to position 2 as position 1, that's just what I understood it to be and what made sense to me.
