Here is a powerchord


E
A
D
G 4
B $
E 5

everytime you hit one or more you make a sound that sounds like a rock bond and they will probably be more like rock and roll than metal. If you want to start using the chords as park of a song then simply arrange them to be together like a normal chords


like this:


5 5 5 5


that means you have a song. When the song is finished, you can probably make verses and choruses (with chords) and 7ths or 3ths. It your gonna use the 3rds, then make sure you have enough time to move backwards and forwards in your ''chordal progression'' and from scales.


when you have a song like this:

intro - verse - chorus - 5ths and 2ths - chorus
5 5 3 5 2 5


The numbers represent the ammount of powerchords per bar, or the numbers on the fret board.

your using powerchords, its a good idea to bass guitar solo rather than guitar solo and use the drums as a kind of beat to keep time signture in the rab

another tutorial -


TUNING THE ELECTRIC GUITAR

before tuning, you must realise that you need to be in tune with the other guitars in your band otherwise it will probably sound ungood.
i) get some tuning pegs
ii) listen to the sounds of the other guitars and ''tune'' up to them

if you are by yourself its simply a matter of guessing what E sounsd like


TUTORIAL FOR SINGING
if your voice is un-good, maybe you should not be a singer. most people can sing, so try the siging of high stuff like the darkness. for training. use vocal scales like D harmonized major scales and youll be able to sing darkness songs like I believe in something called love.

your voice box is in your stomach so when you sing low or high notes it goes lower or higher up your body. if you sing really high it will be near your mouth. this means you need to sing high to get the voice near your mouth.

singing songs:

If ur confused about vocal scales, simply dont use them and practise singing songs by bob marley and u can be a reggea person insted.

You have no idea how much that is done when it comes to "popular music".

And by the way:


TUTORIAL ON NOT SOUNDING STUPID:

1. Shut up.

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

HOW TO PLAY GUIITAR SOLOS

Here is a lesson in what is commonly called 'guitar playing solos'

you need to understand that with guitar tabs you can read guitar solos even though you cannot if you are playing an acoustic cause it wont be playable at the top of the neck.

Here is what I mean:

E----------------------18---
A----------------16--
D------------12-16------
G------22------------
B------------------16
E-12------------------

even though it looks really good, its too hard on an acoustic before you wont be able to find the notes without hurting your arm.

There are lots of types of solos such as apregion, tapped solos and hammer offs.
This is what they look like

D - 15--t---18 <--- this means tap on 18 with your thumb
D----15


A----10 ------1
D-----Hammer---
E---1-2-1-2-1-2 <------ this means use your thinger to hammer on and off 1 and 2 in between the notes, it should have a little mark over the top to indicted what it means, especially on tabs


if you are playing stuff like blues that eric clapton started then you need to get lots of benders in, such as:

£----5-->>>

this means bend the note on the fifth fret so it will probably become either 6 or 7 depending on how hard you make the bend


When you have finished learning the solo it is best to put it onto an amp such as marshall or laney and you will be able to hear it out loud. its its still un-good its probably best to try it again until you think it sounds really a lot like clapton.


If you want to add 'spice'' into your soloing, just add stuff like sweeping picks, which is where u get the pick and pick all 6 strings at the same time with like a chord on

E-0012
A-0012
D-0012
G-0012
B-0012
E-0012........ <--- this means your playing Asus2 and you just need to sweep the pick on the fret board and it will make a sound that is good for solos like john petrucci


When ur solo sounds good through the guitar amp its time to make your own guitar solo which can be done by tuning up and then making arpegions and trying to ''hum'' out a solo. If your trying to think of a solo, hum out ''hmmm, deedley, doo'' and stuff and you will probbly think of one, then you just need to find out how to do it in arpegions.


Here is a solo i wrote:

E-------------------------------------------------------------------------012
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------012
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------012
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------012
B-------------------16-17-----------------------------------------------012
E-12-13-12==>--------16--18-----17--(T)--22--(T)---17--------012
................bend lots...........................(do tapping)............finish with arpegion sweep pick


if you can do this your pretty good but it is done really fast so keep practising it until you get the hang on the scales and notes in the chords.


If you have a drum machine you can play solos along to the drum beat which will helpful keep you into time so you will never lose time. When you are playing a solo, dont forget to:
-keep in time
-play every scale in the note
-keep playing the scales again for added effect

Then you will be able to do clapton style solos but probaly not john petucci yet cause you need to practise sweep picking before u can do his solos.
