Please Help
 
Hey guys i am gonna start of by saying i am new to this forum i am a 14 yyear old guitarist drummer vocalist and producer and thats about all you need to know! ;) anyway i am just writting a song and its coming up for the solo but i aint sure what notes to use because i mainly play in D tuning but in C (CGCFAD) so it would be really useful if someone could help me with where to solo around ! Thanks ;)

Depends on the key of the song. And 'where' to solo doesn't really make any sense at all. The notes for all scales and keys are found throughout the fretboard, so you can solo anywhere on the fretboard one you learn the key, the notes of the scale, and the notes of the fretboard.

Sorry mate, but that doesn't make any sense. I can't follow your line of logic at all. :shrug:

No. If you're in C standard, then C on the 6th string is at the 12th fret. You would be playing an A minor scale if you started at the 8th like that.

If you are in the Key of C then playing the notes in that key is the safest bet. Do you know what those notes are?

The C on the lowest 3 strings in Drop C are the 6th and 4th strings open, the 12th fret on the 6th and 4th strings, and on the 5th and 17th frets of the 5th string. If you know the notes of the scale and how the alphabet works then you can find the rest on the fretboard.

Thanks guys my actual guitar playing is up to grade 8 says my teacher but my theory not so much ;)

Are all of the instruments in the same tuning? I mean, do you have a guitar playing in the background? Which chords does it play? It really doesn't matter in which tuning you are, the fingerings are the same. Play as if you were in standard. Use your ears and don't just play random melodies. You should really hear if you are playing the wrong notes.

What so bad about it? :D

Come ya'll. Give the kid a break.

If all of your instruments are in the same tuning (C standard), you would start the C natural minor from from 12 on the 6th string, or, fret 7 on the 5th string.

Fixed. He's in drop C, not C standard.

^^ My bad. I didn't read close enough. Thanks for the correction.

how exactly do you label yourself a "producer" when you cannot hit notes on your guitar and decide whether or not they sound good

Jehannum 02-11-2013 06:13 AM

If you're really grade 8 with that level of understanding you must be a prodigy of some sort. If you learn a little theory you'll be unstoppable!

This should be simple. You're playing in drop C tuning in which the whole purpose is to take advantage of the low C string. I am going to assume that you're into metal. Metal likes minor.

Step 1 - Play in C Minor
Step 2 - Learn the SOUND of the minor scales.
Step 3 - Listen
Step 4 - Play
Step 5 ???
Step 6 - Results

Music doesn't sound different to our ears compared to yours. It should be obvious whether it's the note choices that sounds like crap or it's just your playing.

You must have both achieve mastery in both in order to sound audible.
