I've felt "stuck" many a time in my years of playing. Whenever I do, I go to theory practice. It gets frustrating though!


Very frustrating lol.

So what's everyone's favorite guitar? Mines either a Les Paul Custom in black or a HD.6-X Pro Digital Les Paul. Right now I'm trying to save up for a standard Strat, which is about $570.00 :D.

I'm probably one of the only people that isn't a Les Paul fan.

yeah it sucks. thats what ear training is for. You know what a note sounds like, and you can hum or sing it. Then if you know where on the fretboard it is on what string, you can sing or hum it while playing air guitar. It's the closest I'm gonna get...lol.

I'm still new to guitar. I have trouble hearing what a note is just by the sound. I've been listening to songs and trying to picture the notes, but it's very challenging :/.

Try this when you're bored on the computer. It will help you.

http://www.activebass.com/ click on Bassics on the top, then Ear Training. It's geared toward bass though...so bass clef, and all that. You can probably google search to find something similar in the treble clef.

Wow, no SG players here?

10 reasons to date a paintballer:

1: We all have at least 12 inch barrels. 2: We can shoot load after load. 3: We can work up the middle as well as the corners. 4: We know how to handle our balls. 5: We know paintball guns to guys are like jewelery to women. 6: We always wear protection. 7: It takes us only a matter of seconds to find the sweet spot. 8: If needed, we will never take our finger off the "trigger". 9: We play fast and hard. 10: We're not afraid to get a little messy.

Check around Youtube. If you have any questions, you could always try here or on www.ultimate-guitar.com.

Now I have a question. I was reading a thread on UG and it led me to this...
I'm trying to write something that has an eerie, demeaning feeling, sort of like this bass riff from Metallica's "Call of Ktulu"
	 e e e e	 e e e e	 e e e e e e e e
G||-----------------------|-------------------|
D||--------5-(5)H7-5-7----|-------------------|
A||--0-0-0-------------7--|--6-6-6-6-6-7------|
E||-----------------------|--------------8-7--|

Sort of like that.

I only use my fingers and I've read that playing chromatic stuff could help but it's just not doing it for me. Does anyone else have any suggestions as to where to at least start to make something sound demeaning? I'm not talking about sad or depressing, but more like hopeless and eerie.

"Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath also has the feel I'm going for. I'm open to suggestions.

I've also tried playing notes one fret and one string lower than the previous note, and different variations of that. WHile that does sound creepy, and it makes a good building block, I'm still looking for more ideas.

Definitely play around with Locrian mode. You can make some pretty sinister stuff with Locrian mode, yet still have it sound good as long as you stay in key with anything else you are playing and use your imagination. And try to use a lot of bassy notes. Go to Drop C or C tuning and play around with some riffs in the Locrian mode around the 5th and 6th strings.

The scale you play in has a lot with determining the mood. And by that, I mean like Xdim, Xmin, Xmaj, etc. There are lots of different scales. Tons. Play them up and down, play arpeggios in the scales, play whatever in the scales, and figure out which has the sound you are looking for. After that, make your rhythm match the mood. Also think about the effect of increasing or decreasing pitches. Like in the classic bum bum bum increasing pitch for something good happening...and the dum dum dum...decreasing pitch when something bad happens. i think that makes sense...
