I wrote this guide in order to help out this guy, but I thought maybe it was good enough advice that it deserved its own thread.

There is lots of redundancy on a guitar, i.e. you can play the same notes in lots of different places. You can eliminate this redundancy and thus improve your guitar's range by using this simply neat trick I invented-

How to get the maximum range out of your guitar:
Four simple steps to success!!!!!

1. Tune low E string to lowest desired note
2. Finger low E string on the highest possible fret
3. Tune next string one semitone higher
4. Repeat until you run out of strings

Using this technique, you should be able to improve the range of a standard 6-string 22-fret guitar to eleven octaves.

You're fucking welcome.

What about the whammy bar? I can whammy like... more notes up and down.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

You should know by now that you don't need a whammy bar. It is perfectly possible to whammy without one.

Even the piano can't touch 11 octaves.

And you should know by now that if you whammy with a whammy bar while you whammy without a whammy bar you get a double whammy effect.

It's obviously your fault. You set both your hopes and the low string too high.

This thread reeks of 2008 and I love it.



I was actually thinking "Man, this is totally a throwback thread" when I scrolled to see this. Totally accurate.

If I wanted to improve my guitar's range, I'd just buy a longer lead.

THe easiest way is to take 4 running steps while swinging it so that it actually connects with the drummer/singer/keyboard player who has earned your wrath. Notice I didn't mention bass player, they're ususally cool, agreeable chaps who never piss anyone off.


Peace and love

This trick works so well, now all of my solos have the maximum expressive and emotional impact and I have less need to string hop. I'm even anchoring less because of it!
