----------------11----------------------------
------------10-----10------------------------
---------9-------------------------------------
------8----------------------------------------
--7--------------------------------------------
--5--5--5--5--5--5--------------------------

Cheers!


I would just hybrid pick most of that...

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread.

Sorry if this makes me sound like a noob of all noobs, but i've been playing electric for bout 3 years? and i can't understand how slow my improvement is. I hear people in guitar shops who have only been playing for like a year and are amazing, plus i started elec. already knowing notes etc cos i played classical before that.

I mainly don't have the discipline to play shreddy stuff because i don't realy like it, but i wanna be able to play like Frusciante or SRV on their super fast runs and I don't know how long I've been working on this, but I'm not getting better.

I also think a drawback is the fact that I appreciate slow stuff, but i want to be able to play fast and using other than two notes, mainly just to show off. And be happier with my playing knowing I'm slightly more versatile.
:deep breath:
Any tips/comments/annoyed people/suggestions/moaners/uninterested passers by? (not the last one)

woah just rereading and noticed how bad my grammar was sorry.

can someone point me in the right direction?

you know how a 4/4 signature would keep the beat
Code:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +


well and someone well me what the ways to keep on beat with a 3/4, 7/8, and 5/8 signatures are?

my idea:
Code:
3/4 1 + a 2 + a 3 + a



someone help or give me a link please?


i can keep in time with a metronome, but i like to keep a beat with my pen when im away from my guitar. thanks!

Think of 3/4 like a waltz, with a lift on the first beat, like 1 2 3 1 2 3

Money by Pink Floyd uses 7/8, and I have no idea about 5/8 sorry.

Touchstyle tapping involves playing independent bass and lead separated between hands.

3/4 is divided into 3 crotchet beats, so you would count ONE two three ONE two three etc

7/8 is divided into two crochet beats and a dotted crotchet beat (or any combination of those). If i was counting that i would probably count the two crotchet beats and then follow that by counting 3 quavers.

5/8 is divided into one crotchet and one dotted crotchet.

This is great and everything, but seriously, where do I start?

There is so many things, is there a starting place? Is there a specific lesson one should start with first? Gah I'm so confused.

The UG weekly lessons are great starting points for figuring out how to warm up and what you're practice style is. The progression of weeks is pretty logical in my opinion.

Is there a link to them?

I think he means the "Ultimate Guide to Guitar" lessons, which were columns featured on the main page of the site.

If you use firefox press CTRL ALT and + or it might just be CTRL +

Think that should sort it, just the same with - to zoom out again

I noticed I couldn't see all the Zip files from the old sticky in this thread, so here they are.

Freepower, I don't know if you still need them but you might want to put them in the main post
