Yeah you're probably looking for Theory of a Deadman. Kroeger got them started and the lead singer even looked a bit like him back in the day when he had facial hair.

They're a little more...

How long have you been playing?

It should be a pretty natural movement; not something you have to think about too much. Generally, I would say that my forearm is anchored, while my wrist pivots from...

Looking for guitar players/teachers who are also writers.

About a year and a half ago, I started a site called Guitar Chalk, which is linked in my signature.

I've developed this site (slowly) into a sort of an informational blog. Think of it as a...

Tons of songs are made up of these simple chord progressions or others that are...

I've always heard that it's good to write music for five years, throw everything out and then start fresh (I forget where I heard that, but it's good advice).

I agree with CelestialGuitar though....

I would say that you separate ear training and theory, but that there's def a structure for each one individually that needs to be followed.

I would try a low end Ibanez or PRS SE model. Particularly the SEs are solid guitars -- and you can get them for around $400 used.

I'd put in a vote for one of the Line 6 Spiders -- maybe the small single speaker options, since you're just getting your start. I'm pretty partial towards those amps.

You should definitely be paying more attention to the drums than the guitar. You'll play the same notes as the guitar, sure -- but you'll be in sync with the drummer.

I know that Audioslave uses a tuning like this for Gasoline and Tool uses it for Prison Sex.

Although I think for both those songs it's just B-A-D-G-B-E. No flat.

Typically people who can play by ear are better in terms of improvising -- and to be honest, I don't think more...

The pain will stop -- keep after it and learn your chords, some basic pentatonic scales and some strumming technique. Once you get there you can start to narrow your focus a bit more.
