A5 - now that I see your explanation, I see that I commited an error in nomenclature. Was thinking power chord. But I think I am beginning to understand this a little better. Thanks again for the explanation. This has been a big help

Re: assitance with a chord

one other question, am I correct that calling the next note in the chord F# vs. Gb had to do with being able to neatly arrange the notes in intervals of thirds?

assitance with a chord

For starters, I'm coming back to guitar after about nearly a decade away from the instrument. I was just beginning to really get into theory when I set it down. For the most I play by ear - I do know my basic chords, scales, etc. Nevertheless, I tend to play by ear and therefore struggel to explain ...

I used to have a strat with Lil' Screamin' Demon in the bridge position - that is a great pickup (too bad that guitar was stolen from me :cry: )

Re: Amp question

I've got a rack set up (SANSAMP PSA-1, Digitech GSP-1101, Carvin TS100 power amp) and I actually run the power amp cranked to 10 and use the volume on the digitech (the preamp is in the effects processor's loop) to control volume - growls and roars like a big block chevy screaming down a dragstrip. ...

Re: Fretboard Theory Reviews?

A couple points: 1) about every other chapter starts with a factual error (you get each chapter's first page as the reviewable material). Some of these errors are rather grievous and demonstrate a failure to understand theory at all! 2) The free tabs are not copyright of the artist. It is quite pro...

Re: Fretboard Theory Reviews?

Hi, saw your message and thought I'd take a crack at providing an answer. First, I did in fact sign up to this forum in response to this question (thought I'd make that clear since there seems to be some doubt about the authenticity of some of the older posts).
