    Greetings fellow musicians.

    I am a beginner on the steel acoustic guitar so kindly help me along and pardon my silly question if I do ask them. I have trained in Hawaian guitar/Mohan Veena and play the 10 hole diatonic harmonica upto a decent level.
    Now my training in classical music slightly impedes my growth toward western concepts so I would also like to talk about the comparison between the aforesaid 2 topics.

    @priyadarshi: Learning of Western and Indian classical don't have to impede each other.

    You are probably more used to a different tonality of scales at this point. That is why you feel the western scale is a little weird. Keep at it. Once you get into Modal Theory, you will find out how it all fits together. Some of those exotic scales are cool like Spanish Phrygian, Arabic, Hungarian Minor etc. Just listen to more variety of music to get used to the odd note arrangements.
