Well, tonight I was bored and I discovered something very fun. I'm sure many UGers have tried this before. I got bored tonight and sat down and just started writing down tabs of notes I thought would sound good together. No guitar near me. I later got my guitar and played the tabs and they sound amazing! anyone else done this? I think I may start doing this if I have to come up with a new song on short notice. Heres the tabs I wrote..

notation and theory aren't necessarily connected, but notation helps.

also, show you're worldly by not being an elitist prick.

Yes, well I don't tab it out.

I just do it all in my head and later on, I just pick up my guitar and play it.

So because someone writes a riff in tabs they're automatically ignorant of all music theory and notes? You're quite the jackass.

For 1 day I've been on this forum I see people laughing at other's bad spelling etc... Well, the tabs ARE like bad spelling or like Yoda talk

I have to agree their useful sometimes, but in order to really play guitar you need to learn the notes and the theory kids

Just because someone reads tabs doesn't make them an uneducated loser. Notes are hard to learn. If nobody read tabs, there would be no Ultimate Guitar, which means no Pit. So shove that up your ass.

You must be a troll, because I don't think anyone can be that ignorant and uneducated. The irony would be too much for a person to actually not realize. You must be joking.

i hate the whole..theory and notation go hand in hand. 2 seperate things and notation should be second nature before bothering with any major theory. maybe not reading the stave for notes but reading rhythms is essential for all musicians (people get bogged down in the other stuff)

whole note slow long,
half,
quarter medium speed length,

8th, faster speed shorter notes

16th notes fast notes very short

you mainly use quarter and 8th and 16th notes so look at which have lines across the top-quicker shorter..just look for the lines, and also count out 1and 2and 3and 4and eg smoke on the water 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and

I just find it kind of funny that you have an avatar of a band whose guitarist has admitted that he doesn't know any theory and then go preach to everyone about learning it. Music theory and reading music are essential tools for guitarists but aren't needed. In the end all that matters is playing what sounds good to you. Did you expect the OP to write out the stuff on the staff lines instead and post that? I mean this is a guitar tab site dude.

don't be such a ****ing dambass, music has nothing what so ever to do with being able to read musical notation, or even knowing theory, music is about emotion and passion, so pull the rod out of your arse and grow the **** up.

You can't deny that theory has anything to do with music, that's just ****ing stupid. Dambass.
