There is some differences in tone between different strings but I think the more important thing is how they feel and how long they last. I just couldn't stand the way Rotosound British Steels felt....

The link didn't work (it didn't load the page) but I guess it was talking about A major and E major keys having different "feelings".

All keys sound similar but not exactly the same. If you play the...

The thing is, don't just write progressions. Any progression will sound boring without any rhythm. You said you have written lyrics. Maybe start with a melody, not chords. Just start singing your...

^ I agree with you but I think it depends on what you are doing. What's the purpose of covering a solo or a song? If it's a technical/aural/whatever exercise, I would say playing it as close as...

I don't really listen to my own songs (sometimes I do), I prefer listening to other bands - or actually I listen to my songs for different reasons. But playing my own songs...

Point the speaker at your ears. That way you'll hear yourself. Also, 15 watts cranked is pretty damn loud and should be enough to play with a band. If you can't hear yourself, the other guys should...

The track would have been freaking epic if there had been some heavily distorted guitars and heavy drumming in the end. It sounded pretty good - it had that kind of dark feeling to it. I think the...

Warborn

Did you play all instruments by yourself? The drums sound sloppy so try playing more accurately. You need to sound tight to sound heavy and IMO the sloppiness kind of ruined the song. And to...

I don't think this is the same argument. You can tell when a guitarist can play and when he can't play. It doesn't really have to do with "feeling" or "soul". We just describe it as having not any...
