Yes, exactly. When you see "Cdim7" used in context, it doesn't really necessarily function as Cdim7. It is just named after its bass note. I mean, writing Cdim7-C is a lot easier to read than...

Simplest solution is usually the best. Put the looper as the last pedal in your chain. And preferably, if your amp has an effects loop, put it there. That way changing the amp channel doesn't affect...

I don't think that's fuzz. That's a normal light overdrive sound, probably achieved by just turning the amp up or using the drive channel of the amp at a low gain setting. Fuzz is way more buzzy and...

Start singing in a choir and you don't need to worry about tuning systems. Or get a fretless guitar. But if you have frets or keys, you need to use some kind of a tuning system. You can never achieve...

We name chords according to the root of the chord. Chords are built by stacking thirds on top of each other. The chord name "Am7" refers to "A" - root note; "m" - minor third; the fifth is assumed to...

If you are alternate picking, you use whatever stroke it happens to be. That's the point of alternate picking - you play down-up-down-up all the time. You can of course use economy picking too but...

I don't know... Stacking OD and distortion is not rare. If you are using a clean channel, it shouldn't be too much distortion. I mean, boosting a distortion pedal with an OD is basically the same as...

Just change the chromatic line. That's the only thing that needs to be changed. I agree with fingrpikingood. That sounds almost like a "sample" from Phantom of the Opera. Sounds like it was...

To me it sounds like you are talking about the descending and ascending chromatic melody line. I would say that's a pretty integral part of the song (Phantom of the Opera). If the rhythm is exactly...

It's such a cheap guitar that it wouldn't make sense to add a Bigsby to it. I mean, a new Bigsby will cost as much as that guitar costs.

^ Is it this shape x 5 4 0 3 0?

You could analyze the open strings as some kind of "pedal points"/non-chord tones, maybe some kind of suspensions that don't really resolve. It's certainly a D major...

I'd prefer the first one. Isn't C HW usually used over a C7 chord? So in that way it would make most sense. It shows all the extensions. Having two thirds or two fifths is kind of weird. But it of...

It's all about context. IV-iv-I is one of the most common ones. But not the only one. Another common one is for example if we are in C major, C-G-Gm/Bb-F. So that's a minor v chord - though it kind...

0:20 authentic cadence
