I want to take certain songs and do instrumental versions of them but im actually having trouble doing it. I was wondering if you had to find the notes the singer sings and then match them with the notes of the guitar but not quite sure. Any tips?
figure out what key the song is in then try matching the notes of the singer in the major or minor scale. That'll do the trick for most songs.
^--what he said.
also, if you have a wah, use it...it helps the audience hear the "vocals/lyrics"(if they know the song) instead of hearing it as a guitar. kind of an illusion effect in this instance.
people with large sig's are clearly compensating for something.
