Its so annoying, not only have I broke the my high e on the acoustic, Ive gone and lost the peg to hold it in.

So Im stuck. Cant really play much because I dont know very many songs that dont always use the high e.

Of course, there are loads of them that dont, Im just a bit braindead at the moment

^ dude yer never past playing power chords, i can play all sorts of chords but i still incorporate power chords into my playing, but i digress, i always keeps spares (usually at least 2 packs) of strings, i feel lost and nekkid without a high E (actually i feel that way if i break any string) you could play any punk song, 'i wanna be sedated' is a good one that doesn't need it, 'welcome home' is another good one that doesnt require it, or the rhythm section doesn't at least, lotsa tools basic rhythms don't require it, nor do chevelle for the most part.

You do know I was joking... right?

And what's wrong with power chords? They sound great with distortion. A little overused, but they are still great.

Ya there is nothing wrong with power chords. Look at John Frusciante. He uses tons of power chords in his playing. So if he can make it work, so can you.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Learn to play without the high E, use an alternative tuning or something. Its good practice.
#12
if you are so beyond playing power chords, why are you asking about songs not using the high e? It's like einstein asking "der vats 2 + 2?"

You are never "beyond" power chords, just like noone is "beyond" the pentatonic scale or open chords or anything. They are all just musical tools, used to achieve different sounds.

Jesus, you know what I am saying. Would you practise for an hour with power chords? What I am saying is that one shouldnt spend too much time on power chords, I spent my first year learning power chords, now I have moved on.

Why is everyone so scrutinizing these days?

Let's bounce the ball right back at you?

Why do you think you are above powerchords? Do you really think you are better than one of the most fundamental chords of the last forty years? You can NEVER move on past a certain type of chord. It can always come in use. If you think it's too easy, make it harder. If you don't like the punk powerchord style, make up a style of your own to use powerchords with, in which you switch powerchords often.

Just don't ever say that you are above anything.

Those songs use the high at some point almost all frusciante songs do, he's a funk guitarist to start so he mainly use the high notes and strings on the guitar when he does play the lower one's it's either with power chords or finger plucking them as base notes, but good songs none less.

I think the solo in Dani California does use the high E, now that I think about it, but only a couple times.

And the others you can play without the high E and it will sound fine.
