So I watched Tyler's video about how to use the chromatic notes effectively but I didn't understand the video and don't know what he means by approach notes and pre-fixed chromatic notes. If you could help explain them to me to help me understand i would greatly appreciate it

P.s: also in the video he talks about flavor notes and mentions the 9 and the flat seven, etc. but I don't know what those mean and I couldn't find any lessons talking about it, so what is the best way to learn how to understand it.

I was experiencing the same thing. I feel like beginners corner needs to address some of these things. I have never played an instrument before so the best I know at the moment is tabs.

I think that the point that Tyler is trying to get at in this video is simply to not get stuck inside the scales. When he is talking about approaching notes, he just means to say that you don't want to linger on chromatic notes, they're like fillers. it's like a sentence; to take the word "the" out of the sentence "the dog jumped over the fence" makes it say, "dog jumped over fence," you still know what is being said, but there's something missing, however you don't want the focus of the sentence to be on the word "the" either because that takes away the centeral purpose. Chromatic notes are like fillers, they're not necessary to tell the story, and they should never be the focus, but they help point your licks in the right direction and strengthen their meaning.

Hope I could help!
