How do modes relate to scales?
I am not seeing the correlation between the two.I know that scales are determined by the intervals within.Is the same true for modes.Lets say i am playing a song in A minor,do i play mixolydian in A then?Is that how it works?Can i also play any other modes as long as they are in A?

i figured the intro up to chorus of it by watching the video over and over, but i want the rest of it, can't find a tab even on Guitar Pro disc. can someone please make a fairly accurate tab, or does anyone know where i could find this tab? its my favorite Mountain song and i wanna learn the rest of it.
Crossroads Headcuttin' Duel Thread!
This has gotta be one of my fave guitar ditties ever!...can't play it to speed, it's been a work in progress over years...sob!
So I decided to put together some links to the original, and some players on youtube. Which gives me hope, cause one of them nails it very well, and the others, while they're not as clean, still get very close.
Anybody else love this song...er, duel?..er, amalgamy of licks and riffs?
Here's the original:
"...Jack Butler's gonna like you....:
Just the "Eugene's Trickbag" portion:
...and here's some ones of folks on the net...
This one is sweet...
...here's a couple others ...one's got some cheesy handclaps...
...that's the best I could find that weren't fakes.
You usually don't see the FULL duel tabbed....for a couple obvious reasons, but I think the Vai-only "Butler's Bag" is damn sweet in itself.
I think somebody on youtube could come up with a convincing version with BOTH guitars....even do a drop D for Steve (er....Jack) in the intro with Eugene and he.

'Twould be appreciated...
I know this might seem like a noobish thing to ask. But is there exactly a right way to hold the pick. I kind of make a loose fist with my fingers and then hold it to my pointer with my thumb so its pointing toward me. Are there any other ways, or am I doing it wrong? It feels fine but I just thought I'd ask.
What's your way of learning?
This is my way of teaching myself to make some kool tunes,
I go up into my room, turn the light down low, and think for a minute,
Then grab my guitar and play something.
I do some easy exercises at first to wake up my fingers, then play some cool tunes I make up there on the spot,
What's your way of learning??
I've been playin for about 3 1/2 years, since I was a freshman in high school, and I've hit my fair share of technique walls and off days, but lately I've found myself slowing down...just over the past week or so I've not been able to articulate notes like I should, been super sloppy on the frets and lost a good bit of the speed and clarity I used to have...I haven't changed my practice regiment, guitars, settings, nothing. Same Black Gold ML, same Crate combo amp, but for some reason I'm just flat out slowing down. I have no idea whats going on, has anybody ever had this type of thing happen or know how to get out of it?
On another note...I've hit a wall with my bass playing, anybody know any good ways to improve bass chops that don't involve attempted suicide at the hands of learning Pulling Teeth or anything of the like?
Some awesome classical songs to learn on the guitar?
Does anyone have a good bass tab of "Suicide Machine?" If not I can continue to figure it out from a guitar tab...but there're a couple of tricky sounding parts that I'm not too sure about.

Whammy harmonic's: what note's and where????
I got my first whammy guitar yesterday. I can pull pinch harmonics and natural harmonics easy. The whammy harmonic pulls I'm still working on. My question is kind of based on the cemetary gates song. Supose I play a fretted b on the 2nd fret A string. Which fret do I hit the natural harmonic in order to pull up to the pith of high b?
Could somebody post the corresponding harmonic position vs the fretted note for me? I know people here are really good with this stuff and this is my best chance of learning it most efficiently.
