where's the love? the love, the love?


It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin' in.

You're not going to get any better replies than this in the pit, try posting it in a forum that's actually relevant to your question.

I dont understand the question, On Em he plays all 6, on C he plays 5, but does not play the low E string.

E minor he plays all 6, C major chord he doesn't play the low E string, you have to mute it with either your thumb or 3rd finger.

but why? I don't get it
#11
what do you mean why.

First rule of UG: DON'T QUESTION

because the tone E is not in the C chord. If you dont mute it it will ring and be a different chord.

You could play the low E if you want but most people mute it.

Yes it is, the octave of the low E is in the chord.

yea your right, but it would be a C/E, which is just an inversion

C over E. C chord with an E bass note, You can also play C/G, another inversion of a C chord but fretting the 3rd fret on the low E instead of playing it open or muting it. Both C/E and C/G chords are inversions of C

edit: My explanation is pretty bad so I will rephrase:
When you play and chord, it is assumed that the lowest note in the chord is whatever the chord is (ie C chord will have C bass note, Am chord will have an A as bass), but the slash in between the chord and the note indicates what note is going to be in the bass. For example, is yo play an Am chord but leave the low E open, you are playing an Am/E

jvoj, where it says "resident serb", it ought to read "resident ball buster".
