It's the same note, but it is in a higher pitch. Also, maybe you will want to start a thread on any other questions, just to avoid derailing this thread any further


Ah i get it, now! Thanks for that! Really appreciate your help, man. I feel like i have just made another step in my progress. Oh my bad! Sorry guys! Will make a thread if i have any other questions haha

I'm looking for some GOOD songs using a seven or eight string guitar (Not just open string chugging) in the intermediate or advanced range. I listen to mostly metal.

Also, no Animals As Leaders; I'm already working on a few of theirs.

Thanks

Try Born (The Retribution of Spiritual Sickness) and This Godless Endeavor - Nevermore (or any songs by them, listen to their albums and pick one - I recommend Dead Heart in a Dead World and This Godless Endeavor, both great albums) If I remember correctly in The Dance of Eternity - Dream Theater Petrucci uses a 7-string (he uses on other DT songs too) Also, I think Deftones guitarist uses a 8-string since their last album, try Gauze, Poltergeist and Leathers (though their stuff isn't hard to play)

Thanks! I completely forgot about Nevermore, and Deftones is pretty good too.

I rarely, if ever, post in here. I'm just looking for some transcription ideas.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend me some songs that I can practice transcribing with. My transcribing background is somewhat decent for as long as I've played. I can identify riffs/melodies/etc if I listen to them enough, and my abilities can be improved from what they currently are. A few examples of things that I transcribes include:

To Be With You by Mr Big
I Want to Know by Living Colour (Verse riff, only)
Hysteria by Def Leppard
Last Kiss by Pearl Jam
Still Into You by Paramore

As you can see, that gives a general idea of my musical tastes. I like older rock like above (GNR is a huge favorite) along with more modern rock and pop music. Some of the newer artists that I like are Green Day, Paramore, Imagine Dragons, GroupLove, Gotye, and various "top-40" artists that my sister listens to.

Thanks, everyone!

Side-note: I've started playing guitar 5 and a half years ago. My technical skills are pretty solid and I have a decently sized repertoire. I have a decent ear for music as I said and I can improvise adequately.

Hi, been playing for 3 years now. Fairly proficient.

I do a lot of finger picking and am looking for some fairly advanced bluegrass/ country type finger picking songs. The two songs I've learned recently are Windy and Warm and Deep River Blues by Doc Watson.

I want a song that is a challenge to learn, but not impossible.

Something similar to Angie and Classical Gas in difficulty.

Thanks,

Edd

Ok so I have been playing for a little over 2 years, but I have just recently grown out of power chord progressions and all that jazz.

I'm looking for a good solo, not even a whole song, just a good solo to learn. Currently the only solo a can play pretty well is Oh Love by Green Day. link if you're interested

Honestly genre won't be a problem here, I'm willing to learn anything, but if it helps some bands I enjoy covering are Alkaline Trio, Green Day, Rise Against, Avenged Sevenfold, and I also know a slayer song lol. Anything that is attainable by a newbie soloist but still a challenge is what I'm looking for.

thanks

Hey all, Im applying to a conservatory to study composition. For the audition, they require 3 pieces on classical guitar ONLY (no electric guitar or anything, must be a classical piece). Copied from the website, these are what I need to play:

"Perform a memorized solo from the standard repertoire and two etudes that utilize different techniques (i.e. arpeggio, scale, rest-stroke melody). Be prepared to perform from memory any two and three octave major and melodic minor scales (Segovia edition) with rest or free stroke (i-m; m-a). NOTE: electric guitar may NOT be used for auditions."

I'm fine with the scale section but I need to figure out what pieces to play. So far I'm thinking of doing J.S. Bach's Bouree in E minor and Carcassi's Etude no. 3 op. 60 (arpeggio and rest stroke technique). I need another Etude, should I play another one of Carcassi's? Do you think these are good pieces to preform for the audition?

Etudes are easy enough to find on your own. I'd get a book of them and just find something that suits your style and you're good to go.

Also, when you say standard repertoire, what does that include/exclude? I also did these auditions at several universities and colleges, I think I'd be of some help if you provided a bit more info on what pieces are available to you.

The famous classical guitar Paganini Romance got me acceptance into several schools. It sounds really good, and is kind of a benchmark of classical playing (at least among institution-applying musicians). Also very versatile in exhibiting both feeling and technique in one piece.

Hey all,
Been playing for a while now but fairly new to open tunings. Been playing a lot of Alter Bridge for the Open D5 stuff Tremonti writes (i.e. Fortress, Open Your Eyes, Ghost of Days Gone By, etc.)
Can anyone suggest anything else in this tuning? Even if it's a step up or down here or there like open B5, C5, etc. Thanks!

Good day all!

I am just asking for recommendations on players that use more of a lead approach to chord and rhythm playing, since i need to dive into that style abit more myself and i have recently got a new student that wants to approach that style more.

I am speaking of playing in the style of Jimi Hendrix "Little Wing", Andy Timmons "Electric Gypsy", Eric Johnson "SRV" and "Manhattan", Richie Kotzen "Rust" "Ready" and "The Bitter End". What are some other players that use this style of comping a lot?

Thanks in advance!
Best Regards,
Sickz

I've been in a slump for the past few weeks. I need something fun to play and listen to. Maybe something like this:



But just a tad bit easier.

Some beginner jazz songs to learn by ear. Not a very fast song, but not very slow either. I usually have more trouble figuring out the chords than licks.

Any suggestions?

After using KeyFinder on the "chaos part" (where all the tracks of Chaospere are played at once) of "Elastic" by Meshuggah, it told me said part is in G#/A-flat Minor. Now I'm interested in the key but I soon discovered not many songs are in G#/A-flat Minor. I want something that will improve my guitar playing and teach me about this key. Do you know any good songs in that key (I wish to learn more about this key through learning songs in it)?

I'm almost an intermediate player (high beginner) so nothing too hard (definitely no Meshuggah). I also don't want any current Dance-Pop (don't care for most of it). I'm open to anything from Jazz to Rock to Metal to Blues. Song must be in G#/A-flat Minor. Got any suggestions?

Blue Bossa, Tune Up, or Chitlins Con Carne (Kenny Burrell), and just go for the chords on these.

Otherwise, maybe just songs like, 'When the saints go marching in' or stuff like that where you have heard them a million times.

That is what has been recommended to me here and elsewhere, hope it helps!

Hay guys. I'm looking for a song to cover.

The requirements.

It must be globally popular. Like EVERYONE should know the song.
It must be kinda heavy. Like a rock/metal song but no screaming vocals.
It must not be boring, the speed or groove of the song should change. I'm not talking about a tempo change, but perhaps changes from full-time to half-time and back again.

I've been playing for about 6 years so complex guitar parts are not a problem just no insane solos or sweep picking.

Thanks Peace.

Hi, I don't know if this thread is still active,but anyway if it is, I would like suggestions on a song I can learn that involves sweep picking. I've been playing for 5 years but haven't really looked too much into it. But as I'm becoming a fairly decent guitarist it would be nice to play faster and do sweeps. I'm into both rock and metal. Some bands/artists I like are: ACDC, Jimi Hendrix, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica. But I also quite like Bullet for my Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold. So yeah, I'd like a song that can basically introduce me to sweeps, though if there isn't really a great one just a link to to some basic sweep patterns.

For a basic sweep song, look up Coheed and Cambria welcome home. The main riff is a sweep hitting all of the notes in the A minor scale. If you can read music or at know time signatures and values of notes, I would suggest finding the sheet music, it helps a lot for timing on the sweeps. Also, the verse riff helped my a lot with rhythm and pinched harmonics.
