  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I picked up the Andy Martin 7-string chord book and as I started going through the massive number of chords, there are some that I just can't play. My fingers are too short and I don't see anyway around, there are just some things I'm going to miss out on. Has anyone else had this issue and...

    You can probably file this under "another noob question", but I'm looking for tabs of all the e minor power chords. I know most of them but I think I'm missing a couple. I'm trying to learn them in scale format. I've Google searched them but only found a few and was wondering if anyone has a...

During the lead part i play a pattern and I am not sure if the notes matches the rythm guitar (I play the...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey y'all, What's the consensus here on playing a power chord with your first and third finger vs. first and pinky? I have always used my first and third but always notice when players use their pinky. Is it just a comfort thing or is there some benefit to using the pinky? And, yes, I know...

    As a largely self-taught player, I learned to play octave chords by fingering one fret with my index finder and muting the next string by covering the next string also with the index finger. A friend saw me doing it, and told me I should be using my middle finger to mute the string. I...

    Just added this simple lesson video to my Youtube page! I get asked by my students a lot if there are any good tricks to learn what basic chords you can use in every key, so i came up with this simple method to help them out. This isn't a be-all end-all theory Nazi lesson! Just an easy method of...

    I would like to check this out, but all I have is a lowly Blackberry. lol I wonder how accurate it is or what it's limitations are?
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I often find myself playing a riff and thinking hey that would sound awesome with some sweeps over it. Now while going through every arpeggio in my arsenal until I eventually find ones that sound good works, I know there has to be an easier way. Is there any kind of general rule for figuring...

    So, I presume that at least some of you play Black Metal songs, and I wondered if you could share some of your favorite chords or progressions, so I can get some new ideas for melodies. An example is this the classic ---5--- ---7--- ---7--- kind of chord. Thanks.
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm completely internet taught, so there are large gaps in my theory knowledge, and I don't have a teacher to ask about my specific misunderstandings, so I'm sorry if this is a novice question. If I were to play an E and an Ab that would be an E major. However, if I were to play the same Ab and...

    REAPER | Resources It's an add on. Here's the basics of getting it started: So every time you want to add a chord or arpeggio, you need to go into the action list (unless you customize it, of course), but I think it could be really really useful, especially with chords for synths and stuff...
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys its me again back with another newbie question. When I was taking guitar lessons I asked my guitar teacher if it should be making scratchy noise when changing between power chords, and how I could minimize it. He told me nothing you could do about it, and it didn't really matter since...

    OK, we've got one of these for heavy stuff, so let's do one for clean playing.:) To start us off, here's a really cool A minor add 9 voicing in Open C tuning. e----0---- c----0---- G----4---- C----4---- G----2---- C---------

    OK, everyone submit all their wierder chord voicings for metal rhythm!:) I'm mainly thinking heavy stuff here rather than chimy clean voicings and so forth. I'll kick us off... Here's a variation on the 'prog rock power chord' in DADGAD tuning (or whatever variation you like...Fellsilent...

    I'm looking to expand my go-to chords, because lately I'm getting bored with my own playing (ugh). What are some flexible, moveable standards?
  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Seriously. I'm just sitting here chugging away on one and grinning. :D (like, play a power chord at the 9th fret, low E, and then add the 13th fret, D string with your pinkie - C#add9. Sounds epic. For even more epicness, try moving the 11th on the A up to 12 and the 13th to 14 every so often...
