Looking for some feedback on this 30 Seconds to Mars Cover

Hey everyone. I've been working really hard on my singing and I think I might finally be making some headway. I've still got a long way to go, but I like to believe I'm getting there.

Anyway, I did...

I'm looking into a new acoustic and I'm a bit torn between these two.

So recently I came into some money and, as any idiot in their 20's with student loans to pay would do, I decided I needed a new acoustic.

I currently play a cheap Ibanez PF series. Don't get me...

Does this chorus seem cliche?

So, I've bee working on a semi-hard rock song called "Event Horizon". I'm thinking it's going to be a slower song, with a bit of a somber feel to it. Anyway, I've trying and trying to come up with...

Solid point. I guess it comes up more when it's not completely necessary (e.g. The bass note slide in the opening for "Total Revenge" by Say Anything).

Maybe in Western music. Microtones open up to a whole new world of possibilities, PLUS it can be interesting to play around with them on a guitar utilizing pre-bends.

You could play an all-chord (e.g. No fingerpicking) version of "Broken" by Seether. I believe it just goes Em-C-Em-C-Em-C-D-D for the verses and C-Em-D for the chorus.

Do you fingerpick with nails or pads?

Hey guys.

Since being back in school I've been trying to improve my guitar skills, focusing lately on fingerpicking. I was just curious as to if there's a "proper technique". I mean, I've always...

What do you want to look for in a new acoustic?

I've been slowly upgrading my guitar rig for the last couple years and I'd really like to get myself a new acoustic guitar. Not that the one I have is bad, it's just a pain to keep in tune...

Interesting. That is the case in mine, but what about songs like Hero of War that do a I-V progression? Or does it just come down to the melody?
