Wah

wahs change the sound envelope up or down. they work like pretty much an equalizer you shift up or down, thats why it doesnt lower your pitch but it still lowers the sound a little.

if that isnt clear you can google to the max.

I've read through this so far and its very good!

I forget if this was answered or not:

Violining

Picking a note or chord while the volume of the guitar is on zero, then sounding the note by raising the guitars volume. This has the effect of removing the pick attack and exponetial note decay that is the norm for guitar sounds and creating a note that rises gradually and sounds even, more akin to a gently played violin.

One thing, though: for this to be usefull you should edit your first post to include the definitions in the thread, and what page of the thread they're on! As it is, if someone wants to actually use it they have to trawl through everything to find what they want to know.

sorry people, the internet went down for the weekend, just got it back today,

headbanger4life - i dont know what modes are, maybe someone else can answer that *hint hint people*


Dissonance -

Dissonance as part of Consonance and Dissonance is the quality of sounds which seem "unstable", and have an aural "need" to "resolve" to a "stable" consonance. Both consonance and dissonance are words applied to harmony, chords, and intervals and by extension to melody, tonality, and even rhythm and metre.
Taken from Consonance and Dissonance

Modes

Modes are a set of scales built from each degree of the major scale as the root note.
For example, if you have the C Major scale. There are 7 unique notes: C D E F G A B

Each one of those is the root note of its relative mode:

C Ionian
D Dorian
E Phrygian
F Lydian
G Mixolydian
A Aeolian
B Locrian
(C Ionain)

You would have to be more specific than that...It also needs to be said that every mode of a certain scale has the same notes but starts on a different scale degree and therefore has different intervals and a different sound than the original scale. I didnt make it like a definition because I know there is someone else that can word this all better...although to clarify nothing Logz said is wrong, I just felt that it could be more specific.

That is a locking nut

Floyd Rose
The floyd rose is a type of tremolo / whammy bar system.
In the back cavity of a guitar, the bridge extends down to there, and the tremolo block is attached to the body by springs.

This enables you to pull the bridge back and push it forward, which relieves and also puts tension on the strings, which will give you a higher or lower pitch.


Locking Tuners
When you do alternate tunings, the strings tend to pull on the tuners, which makes them (the strings) untune after a while.
A locking tuner locks the tuner in place, which means the strings tension will not pull on the tuners and unwind them.

^ chord consisting of 4 notes. Triads - E G B, Em... Tetrad - E G B D, Em7.

Feel free to correct me if a tetrachord and tetrad are different.

You mean making your guitar wail or what? Try the whammy bar or the Wah.
