a note on the pinch harmonics - they're hard to coax out of a guitar that only has single coils (like a strat) or a a low wattage amp - you're probably gonna have to turn everything up to get a good screech harmonic

on the other hand, if you've got humbuckers and a higher wattage amp, it's going to be considerably easier for you

also, i have the best luck doing screech harmonics right above the pickups

^ I can do them on acoustic guitars. Sure they aren't all too loud, but they are possible.

Play the notes D E F G A B C D. D is your root note.

If you're playing the mode as a scale, yes. If you're playing a solo or something, no, you don't HAVE to.

I'm not 100% sure on what this note means. It's smaller, and got like, line through it, and then it's hammer-on to another note. I think that you play the little note and hammer-on really fast? is that right?

Yes, I think what you're describing is a grace note.

You can also play this by using your thumb to pick the A string, and your pointer and middle finger to close down on the B and G strings with slight pressure. To play all notes at once all you need to do release this awquard grip that you have on the strings to sound all of the notes. This might sound difficult, but it is very affective in making those notes sound nice and clean. The other way, (to mute the string w/ the fretting hand) is ok but I prefer the yay that I had explaned. You will see that some tequniques will work better than others depending on the song. You can be the judge on that one.

wether its just me and im a really lousy guitarist or because i really hate music theory and i never bothered to learn what a key is in guitar, im going to ask. now dont get me wrong; ive been playing for 3 years at rythm but never paid any attention in music classes. i play anything you throw at me after a nite almost perfectly and so im that good, but please, please, tell me that if a play the Dmaj chord (just to be simple) its in the key of... well D because thats the first string played in the chord. and Gmaj for example, would that be in the key of E (low E) or am i entirly wrong? i need help i am changing from rythm guitar to lead and i need help with this. apart from that i rule and so does my band. (name: 20cents short) and dont you steal my idea ive made an album through school. im 14.

The chords are all named after the rootnote of their key :
Dmajor is key of D
Gmajor is key of G
Cmajor is key of C
and so on

I suggest you find some online theory lessons, it is not as difficult to grab as you think - it will only make you a better player and get you respect without having to shout about it.

^ True, but D major can also be in the keys of A and G?

Chords In Key might help you.

A key is a set of notes that can form a scale; the most common are the 12 major keys (one for each chromatic note). A key extends to all possible octaves.
