Got a bit of a problem here, how the **** are you supposed to play parts in songs where the guitar goes like this for example:


   E   S  S  E   S  S E   E     E   E      E   S  S  E   S  S E   E    E   E   
---------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
-------------------------12br---L--10--|-------------------------12br--L--10--|
--14--14-14-14--14-14------------------|--13--13-13-13--13-13-----------------|
---------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
--12--12-12-12--12-12------------------|--11--11-11-11--11-11-----------------|


I´m talking about the part when you play two strings simultaniously but theyr not next to eachother if you get what i meen. I know you can use fingerpicking but thats like not very suitable in hard rock/metal songs, so how do you do it?
Would be grateful for any help.

play a power chord, except miss out the middle string, and mute it with your index finger.

If you want to use the pick to get the right sound and attack the normal way would be to finger it as usual, but let your index finger which is fretting the E string slightly come down at an angle so that it rests the A string slightly - ergo, muting it and letting you attack the strings without worrying about hitting the A string and unwanted noise.

hysteria, no? the hard part would be playing it while the guitar is swinging around a la matt bellamy. but yeah the suggestions above are right.

i think youll find they are, they are called octave chords. How loing u bin playin guitar anyways, hold on a sec, do u even know what one is, a chord is 3 notes played together the note in the middle is not written as a note but is still a dampened note
#12
^ There Octave notes.

A Chord is 3 different pitches played simultaniously.

A Powerchord, even though you play three strings, you are only playing a total of 2 different notes.

Powerchords and Octave notes are called harmonic intervals i believe.

How long have you been playing guitar anyways? Cause you're wrong.

I believe it's called a harmony.

And to be a complete jerk and hopefully win this quote war, let me make it

A chord is AT LEAST 3 different pitches played simultaneously.

Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.
