  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So, a little backstory, I've been playing guitar for probably 15 years, but 99% of it has just been playing along with tabs, minus 4 or 5 years where I had more interest in getting drunk than learning guitar. Recently I got the same guitar bug I got when I was a teenager. I've been busy...
  2. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So my guitar teacher blew my mind. I had always heard of the term but never learned it. So he taught me A Minor Pentatonic. He then showed how you can use it to improvise over songs. He used the backing track for i shot the sheriff and a led zeppelin song. What amazed me was how you could even...

    We haven't had one of these threads in a good long time, and certainly not on the new (software) site. Post your adoration for shorter scales here. With videos/great moments for short scales throughout history/metaphors/pictures/whatever you want/etc. etc. 25.5" is the margarine to 24.75"s...

    I'm a beginner and have been using Andy James' Metal Rhythm dvd series. Week 2 he gets into drop d tuning and shows the D Natural Minor Scale and the D Phyrgian Dominant Scale. He also goes over some chord progressions that go along with these scales. These 2 scales are pretty simple and similar...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I was at a blues jam last night at Sam Ash and I was playing with another guitarist and bassist. We were mostly playing blues progressions (1 4 5-7th) and I didn't know what scales to use to solo. I know the pentatonic scale which has a minor 3rd so I decided to try a minor scale. Nope, that...

    EDIT: Thank you to whoever fixed the title.:lol: I've just been playing around with these positions. It's quite a cool way of getting some more unusual blues licks going. G minor pentatonic shape 1 d--------------------------5--8---- a---------------------5--8---------...

  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi, I've bought mark levin's jazz theory book and I'm studying alot from it but there's something that really bothers me about the whole process. Everytime people say I should use a specific mode on a specific chord, i cant really understand how would you know at the second you improvise to...
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey all, So i've been playing guitar for a few years now but i never really felt the need to learn any scales/chords that kinda thing, i mainly just jam, cover songs etc. I've been researching about scales but i haven't really gotten much of a clear answer as to if i need to learn them and...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey everyone! i've heard that learning scales can come in very much handy especially in rock and metal guitar. So i've given it a shot. I've learned the 5 forms of the pentatonic scale and am practicing those. My question for you guys is what does learning scales actually do? cause whenever i...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I always hear people say stuff like "oh this riff was created using the pentatonic scale" but what exactly does that mean? basically im asking how can you use a scale to create riffs and solos because when i listen to riffs that are supposedly made from certain scales it doesn't sound like their...

  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi, I want to learn some scales, so I can do some more improvised solos. But don't know where to start. I listen to a lot of music, almost all genres in rock and metal. I like blues, but this is something I don't want to learn at the moment. Can anyone help me out, It would be nice if you...

    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...

    I got this beauty - Schecter Omen 7 with a Blaze in bridge - for christmas from my GF. Seller says it's a 25.5 scale (and that schecter has since changed omen 7 to 26.5), some say all omen 7 are 26.5 - will measure it myself when I get home from vacation. Schecter Omen 7 by Anders Bornholm, on...
  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    There's not a lot of scale diagrams for 7 string guitar, so, I made some for the following scales: Major, Natural Minor, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, Pentatonic Major, Pentonic Minor, Blues and Whole Tone. There are two fingerboards so you can compare scales and each scale is on it's own...
