Hi,

I am actually taking guitar classes. I will be part of a talent show either in December or next spring playing Skillet - Monster. This is the song i am rehearsing right now. Right now i am doing the song alone with my teacher playing the drum but i will do it as a band.

My question is it true that guys in a band playing guitar get all the girls ? While i did not get into music for this i am just curious.

It's true in 100% of bands that have ever been made.

With the one exception be Skillet

Actually, the only people I know who like Skillet are dumb easy girls.

If you want girls specifically, play something with a lighter melody, not radio rock trash.

Jasey Rae by All Time Low on acoustic, for example, would get you some.

It may make them interested initially, but fret not, your repulsive personality will drive them away soon enough.

There is no such thing as a B4 chord

Wouldn't a B power chord on the right octave be a B4?

A B4 would be a B note with its fourth (E), which would not be a chord, but a dyad.

I think.

Octave? No. That would just be B again. I think a Bsus4 would be the most correct term for the chord.

I feel like if I tried to do all that at once I'd make shitty abbreviated posts, miss the plot of the movie, and poke my eye out with a fork.

For the record I wouldn't have said anything if someone else didn't bring it up

I played lead guitar in a high school band and we played fuckin' hair metal. I didn't get any girls.

But, like you, I only played because I liked it.

That's a B11 actually. It's a B7 (B D# F# A) extended with an 11 (same note as a 4 (E), but with chord extensions you say 9 instead of 2, 13 instead of 6, 11 instead of 4, I think that's because you add them on top of your regular chord).

Power chords are always 5 because they consist of the root and the perfect 5th note (and their octaves if you're feeling fancy). Octaves have nothing to do with chord notation unless the root isn't the bass note.

I was so confused about that chord because they used enharmonic notes and my teacher would have set us on fire for using those.

So yes, that would be an 11 chord with an added seventh, if you put the E natural an octave above.

No, it's a 7th chord with an added 11th.

I don't think there's anything enharmonic about it either. The B11 fits in the key of E major.

E F# G# A B C# D#

These are the notes to the key of E. The bolded ones make up the chord.

A B chord would be B D# F#

Not B Eb Gb.

That would be a B with a flat 4th and a flat 6th. Enharmonic notes sound the same, but they are not the same notes.

And yes, a 7th with an added 11th. I suck at chords.

Eb and D# are not the same thing and there's definitely not an Eb in a B Major chord.

Firstly, it would be B D# E F# and A.

And B7add11.

EDIT: But B4 is a note, so I guess it was still a pun.

Aaaaaassssssdddddfffff omitting the 9th out of an 11th-chord does not an add-chord make.

Sorry, any theory-related discussion in the pit makes me rage for some reason.

How would you write that. An 11th without the 9th. My Harmony class has been drilling harmonic analysis but we haven't really gone over that stuff a whole lot. She showed us enough so we could do some stuff but then moved on.

I think you can omit the 9th, just like you can omit the 5th.
