i need help
usually i improve a bit every week
i get faster,i can do bigger stretches ect
but for the last few months i'v not got faster
its really pissin me off now
atm im learnin all de pantera solos bt in each song therez always one bit i cant play
cemetery gates for example
iv got the whole solo down apart from that frackin legato bit
no matter how much i practise i just cant play it faster
no matter how much i practise anything,i just cant get it faster
i'm pretty sure i aint tha only 1 with this problem
I'm trying to learn this easy part of a riff, but im not sure how to do the part where it tells u to hammer on 5-7 and then have an open note on low e string, after hammering on to 7 do u strum the open note and 7 again?
I was thinking about this for those of you who have Gmail or Google Talk and a webcam. Is there any interest in any lessons over these mediums? If so what would you like to learn?
I was wondering if you guys were using more than one head for your half or full stacks? Right now I am using the krank krankenstein half stack. I was thinking about getting another head just to play with. So naturally I wanted to see what others were using to get their killer sounds from. I was thinking of the mesa boogie triple rectifier head. Or perhaps a marshall, but I wouldnt know which marshall just because there are like 20 heads to choose from. Im sure the kerry king head is bad ass too.

if this has been done before i apologise,Ok this is all my own words im sorry if this goes off on abit of a rant...
Lately i've been kind of scared about all the guitarists that dont know basic music theory such as the names of notes and how they correspond to a guitar and its chords. As most of you know e standard is EADGBe these are notes(sorry if this is patronising to you). The frets indicate a semitone of difference in pitch
a semitone can be easily explained by the keyboard. Its simply the note exactly next door to the note previously, eg in this keyboard it would go white key black white black white white etc. etc. In an octave ( the term used to describe all the pitches until they repeat again at a higher pitch) the octave again shown on the keyboard is c c# d d# e f f# g g# a a# b (chromatic scale of c) and then unfourtunaly the keyboard shown here does not have the c repeated but thats how the sequence continues repeating but getting higher in pitch.
Ok so you remember how the guitar strings are tuned in e standard well this E mentioned in the chromatic scale is what the lowest and highest strings on the guitar are tuned to. The semi tone is the note next door on the piano and the next fret up. So when playing say the riff smoke on the water on an e string (your choice) ie the pattern goes 0 3 5 by counting up the frets we understand that it goes e g a ( 1 being f and 2 being f#). When the 12th fret is hit the e has been repeated again at the octave. For fun (well to learn) try hitting an e on every string
the notes should be in order of strings in e tuning E: 0 and 12 and 24 for you more cockier
A: 7 and 19 D: 2 and 14 G: 9 and 21 B: 5 and 17 and E 0 12 and 24
this is the first lesson of a few if i dont get eaten alive im not trying to be cocky just trying to help if you have any questions please comment below or pm me.
