Re: Neuron Betrayal

Yes to the above answer. You need to practise your licks in a context. Playing them individually and playing them within a song/ improvised solo is totally different. You've learned the licks; now learn how to implement them into your improvisations/ songwriting. First, figure out which scale/ key t...

I'm having trouble with bar chords and this helped a lot...

So I found this video on playing bar chords in Reddit. Despite the poor quality resolution and audio, the exercises the guy recommends are pretty good. I recommend them, hopefully they will help you if you're also struggling!

Re: Is it possible to play an electric guitar like a classical one?

Its possible alright. If you can do it, then its possible. It depends on what your aim with it is.

Trying new things out that you don't normally do is how you can develop your style of playing, and learn to express yourself in new variety of ways.

Really hearing the modes exercise

I stumbled upon this blog post in Reddit, and I found exercise no.3 in it very useful for ear training. I know what he means by you can just play a scale and not hear its sound, how it differentiates from other scales you can play. All those colours, and internalising them. What do you guys think of...

Re: What scale would I play over this chord?

Yes, what the above peeps said. Chord tone soloing is the best way for dealing with soloing over chord progressions where the key centre is ambiguous. How do you create your chord progressions? It sounds like you choose chords that simply sound nice played after each other, rather than focusing on a...

Star Wars theme played on... calculators.

Such a weird and bizzare way of playing. I did not know you can make such sounds with calculators.

Another video showing how music is based on maths :) Ha.

Ha.

Ha.

Hi there, I am a primary fingerstyle player, and am looking into the world of faster playing. I was on Reddit and saw this video on speed picking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiDHw9iVsCo&feature=youtu.be I've crossed referenced this video with some others on YouTube and the points the instructor...

Re: What does your fretboard say about you?

Thats interesting. When I create songs and riffs from my head, they are in a specific key, so it makes sense that specific keys have different emotional effects, otherwise whats the point in different keys in the first place? Do you people notice a difference in using different scales to invoke diff...

Any loop pedal users out there?

I am looking to buy a loop pedal myself, and am wondering how you peeps use your loop pedal, if you have one. Here's a cool video I found of a guy using a boss RC 300, one of the more top end ones. This is the one I'm most likely to get, because of its versatility. It seems you can have such a great...

Re: What does your fretboard say about you?

I like to play in the scale that suits my idea I'm working on at the time. I currently write a lot of stuff, and am learning Jazz soloing, so its a mixture of the aforementioned and choosing which scale will fit over a chord or series of chords. With the Jazz soloing its targeting chord tones though...

Buying a decent acoustic microphone

I've worked very hard this summer, and when I cash in, I'm going to be investing in a decent microphone to record my acoustic guitar. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which are good, and are within a budget of £400- ? I don't want to spend TOO much on one, as there are other things I'd like to...

Breathe - Pink Floyd cover using a slide

I found this cover of Breathe by Pink Floyd, in which the guy uses a slide to emulate part of the awesome riff in the song. I rarely see these small slides - it seems everyone uses the bigger ones. You know what they say about having big slides... it means you have big fingers. [YouTube][/https://ww...

Re: Help with this Backing Track

You can do this yourself by getting a stopwatch timer, then stopping at the points where the chords change.
