  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've been studying guitar for about 9 months now, and around 6 months ago I started typing up my hand written notes in GIMP, to make 8.5x11" images I can print up for my guitar binder. A few days ago, I decided to share them on the internet. After some feedback on other forums and discord...

    Or wherever really, just to stop in cluttering up that forum? Is that possible?
  3. 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...

  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I came up with this tool for displaying the notes of any given mode in any given key. It was originally intended to go with a theory course I've written, but I think it stands up on its own enough. Modewheel.co.uk - The Mode Wheel There's also a weak as shit app under the same name on the...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So I'm in the process of reading about and learning some theory. I'm the only person I know that really plays an instrument(besides drums) and don't really have anyone to ask simple questions that probably require 1 sentence answers. I thought I would be good to make a thread that I can ask...

    Ron Jarzombek (Blotted Science) "dissects" the whole Blotted Science EP (CRAZY)! From Ron: I swear this guy never gets enough credit for the things he does not only musically but for his fans. This material is CRAZY. I cannot wait to read & watch all of these vids. Check this stuff out guys...
  8. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I would do anything for Mellotron, and I am a huge fan of Toontrack and in general waste a lot of money on their shit. Bought it just for the Mellotron sounds, toontrack never disappoints. The interface was a total surprise, wasn't planning on using it for anything other than a sound bank...
  9. Science 101 with Leon
    To the average person, quantum mechanics is the convoluted, science fiction-y branch of physics. A radical new theory plays into that, proposing that parallel universes exist and interact with each other ‒ and that scientists may be able to test for them. New quantum mechanics theory says...
  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys, as a guitarist i have really skated through without learning a whole lot of theory, i know several general scales and such, and also when writing i generally have a good enough ear to just know what sounds right and wrong. however since i lack in the theory department its nearly...

    I only ever owned the Colonizing The Sun album, but I had a bunch of other MP3s of theirs, back in the ol' peer to peer days. Technical death metal done right.
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I was going over the song "Faulty Outlet" tonight off of Greg Howe's "Uncertain Terms cd", what the hell is he doing over the lead section? I can't figure out what mode he's playing in??? the solo starts at the 2:00 mark here but you may want to listen to the whole tune leading up to it first if...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    yo fullaz. I'm looking to improve my guitar playing a great deal. I've been playing for 8 years now (im 17), and I've reached as far as I can go without learning this stuff. I've realised that after 8 years I should definitely be waaaaaaay better than I am now... I've plateaued and it feels...
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Alright, I've been asked to write a solo for our new song. Well out of my comfort zone but I'm into it! However, I've not made it easy for myself :lol: I've no idea what key I'm supposed to be in and I'd like to know. I'll tab out the chords below, along with what I *think* they'd be called...
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    can it be done by not paying anything? Can't really afford it right now but would like to start learning. Anyone know any good sites?
  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm a senior and i'm trying to get an independent study for music theory. Our band director is an up tight alto player, whom told me its impossible to learn music theory on anything but piano, and doesn't want to let me bring my guitar in. So please guys help me in anyway to prove this dude...
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So i've been getting into some early entombed, bloodbath and hypocrisy in the last year or so... the problem starts when i try to write music in that style... i can't write anything decent that sounds like it's death metal :D any tips on what they use?
  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    No I'm not kidding! Lets analyze it from a theory standpoint! First off on rhythm guitar I've noticed that one of the hallmarks of 80s Hair Metal rhythms is voicing a chord with the root on the a string (oftentimes on the 7th fret so that chugging on the open e (or whatever the lowest string...

    i did a search on "chris juergensen" and found nothing on this site so i decided to contribute. :D chrisjuergensen.com - Lessons and Articles this is one of the best sites interms of music theory for the guitar i feel. most sites give you diagrams and expect you to piece things together. this...

    INI Web Seminars: Penrose, 2005-11-07 Relatively old new theory by now but its nice to see some detail (textbooks of mine at least precede this hypothesis). Also, Penrose > You, so listen! :D Personally I think this is pure genius. Proper genius, that is, on a par with relativity. Even if he...
