Okay today, I got my Jackson Dinky and my Peavy Valveking 212 .
I can read tabs, but no way can i play them that fast, right now only thing i can play is the intro to Sober by TooL. I'm trying to play stuff like theirs, meshuggah, apc, metallica, opeth, etc. What amp settings should i use? I don't have effects. I don't know the basic techniques like bends, slides, hopos. What techniques/skills/songs should i start with? I tried Smells Like Teen Spirit and it didnt happen If anyone wants to be kind and help me over aim i can offer you something of value (pretty good gift) im me over aim pinegetmoney

start off slow, focusing on technique and accuracy, then add speed. i think the first thing i learnt that could be shown off was marilyn manson's cover of sweet dreams, give that a try.

Practice on your clean channel. It's not as fun as distortion, but it will let you hear when you're making mistakes. As a rule of thumb (at least the one I go by), don't play it dirty until you can play it clean.

Start on basic stuff. Learn what chords are. Learn scales. Search these forums for "beginner songs" and "beginner techniques". Religiously read through the lessons on the main site. Search youtube. There's a wealth of information available to you. Most of all, just be paitent and have fun.

Wait a sec, your a 'TOTAL' beginner with a Valveking?


haha...

I would suggest practising without the amp because

a) You can hear your mistakes better.

and

b) Nothing sounds worse than an absolute beginner with a massively loud amp

i knew the line 6 ss amps sucked, and so did the other ****ing ss ones especially the cheaper marshalls, so my choice was the 430 valveking 112 or the 450 valveking 212, or the vox tube amps i didnt demo the vox tube amps i think i should have, they also had a really nice one b52 at 112 but it was too much, I also bought a tama impersal star

lol.

Yeah, it's a solid amp/guitar combo, but it's a little like having a V-8 mustang when you don't even know how to drive yet.

Practice clean or without the amp alltogether. That way your neighbors won't form an angry mob complete with torches and pitchforks outside your door.
