Well, depending on your scale intervals (tone/semitone pattern) it could be quite a few different keys. If you meant the major scale pattern (TTSTTTS), then it would be C major, yes.

ok i need some picking help...im just not good at it, i can strum and do other crap...but picking i just suck at. It seems I always will pick the wrong string or I cant move my fingers fast enough. I tried to avoid it but i couldnt, so now i need help.

Any suggestions?

Start very slow. Alternate pick (or economy pick). Don't go fast at all, just make sure you're hitting the right string. Slowly build speed. I highly recommend using a metronome to keep your timing consistent. Try chromatic exercises or scales with a metronome and slowly up the tempo. If you don't own a metronome, there are online ones. Google 'metronome'.

how do u pluck properly anyway? using all your fingers i mean. cos i end up "scractching" the strings, which gives this "zing!" sound.

(i know it's noobish. but this forum's for beginners right?!)

Why can't you just learn to read tablature? It's not very hard, except for the whole rhythm issue. There are plenty of lessons here on this site!

Here are the basic open chords in tab format:
Code:
C A G E D Em Am Dm e|--0----0----3----0----2----0----0----1--| B|--1----2----3----0----3----0----1----3--| G|--0----2----0----1----2----0----2----2--| D|--2----2----0----2----0----2----2----0--| A|--3----0----2----2---------2----0-------| E|------------3----0---------0------------|

ive been playing for about 8 months now and ive kind of reached a "roadblock".

my changing between some chords isnt as smooth as it should be, and i only know about 20 open chords, but its really boring practising this and it will surely improve over time.

the pieces i know are nothing else matters and stairway (without solos) and im trying to learn classical gas, but im not really sure where i should go from here. should i learn new songs or learn arpeggios or solos or what

well... quite a few people know me, and yea, i have had a 1000 plus gig at school. there were other bands as well, but thats good for my age, 14, right? and i know...(let me count) all open position major chords, all open position minor chords, most 7th chords (dominant) and a few major and minor dominant 7th chords. then i know just about all masic barre chords and how to form them and how to name them and stuff, and i know power chords, but i really concider myself a noob and ive been playing for about 2 years. i need a job at the moment so i can get a new guitar, and thats my roadblock. but yea, keep practising. make up our own progressions and learn how to form position power chords and you can have heaps of fun. dont worry about trying to solo unless you have a little bit of theory behind it to make it sound good, and i dont, thats why i post in other threads for help. but just chill and do your own stuff and you will greatly improve. unlike me.

I have a question about a few parts in this song...

1*-(1/)3-4---<11**>-

Now, do I play the first fret, then play the 1st fret again, the bend up to the 3rd fret, then play the 4th fret?


And


7-5-h7p5-\4

First you play the 7th fret, then you go to the 5th, but then, do you hammer on the 7, after the 5, immediately, then pull off back to five, then slide down to 4, in one motion?


4h5tr-2h4tr-0

That I am totally confused at, I know its trilling, but I'm not quite sure howmany times you are suppoed to 'trill' between the 4 and 5 and 2 and 4...

1/3\1/3/4/6/8^^^^6h8p6h8p6-4h6p4

Totally confused on that, are you suppoed to do all those bends in one motion, then do all those pulloffs/hamerons with one pick stoke...?

This is al in the Jimi Hendrix song/version of the Star Spangled banner... http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs..._banner_tab.htm
