Bumping.
Guys, I could really use some help with this.

Tune first then capo.

Think about it, trying to tune a guitar with a capo on...


It's very possible, as the capo simply acts as a replacement nut. It's just not all too wise.
Would someone please please please be able to tab out this acoustic arrangement of Snowing's Sam Rudich?

It's not a very long song, and only has a few movements, so it shouldn't be to difficult.
Any help would be much appreciated, as it's one of my favourites.
Thanks in advance.
What a cunt. Hope you get thrown in the big house and raped by Bubba.
serious as a heart attack
Who are some of your influences?
Listen to absolutely everything to source inspiration. I mean everything. Rule nothing out.
For your genre specifically, as well, try La Dispute and Dillinger Escape Plan, specifically their EP with Mike Patton.
Real ****ing great guitars
Happy Vaginal Departure Day
This is literally the heaviest matter in the universe.

Closely followed by this (which isn't even metal! Shock! Horror!)

hey guys i'm totally 100% aware of what an arpeggio is and about chord construction and everything, i'm not a theory retard okay lol its just i doubt people are sweep picking bar chords and the more basic jazz chords lol. i know EXACTLY how to construct these things, i just can't think of shapes that are easy to sweep pick but don't also look just kinda silly. i like fallen-seeker's answer :p


So basically, you want the easy way out, instead of putting in the effort and hard miles yourself. Maybe you shouldn't play an instrument.
**** yeah. Songs About Leaving would be my favourite slowcore album. Escape the Day's Ghostless is amazingly heartbreaking, too.
Baroness.

Not terrible, but not good by any stretch of the imagination. Surprisingly, it's a lot better live.
Luckily the music makes up for it though.
Such Hawks, Such Hounds
Until the Light Takes Us
Turn the caffeinated drinks into liquor, and watch some rare/banned movies.
I suggest:
The Room
Tokyo Gore Police
A Serbian Film
Antichrist
Braindead
and Megashark Vs Giant Octopus

Well i would start by staying OUT of tune, yes thats right your playing punk so **** tuning. And maybe turn up the gain and treble and scoop bass and mids and then just strum power chords..your welcome...


Well, this guy obviously has no f*cking clue what he's talking about.
Swans and Throbbing Gristle.

Also, Cause for Effect springs to mind, as their the only two-piece Jazzgrind band I've heard.

Judging by his spelling and his disposition, TS is 12 and should not be on the internet.
What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
Tanglewood, far superior for the price range. I have one, and love the shit out of it.
Really like it man. Keep it up
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel
How has Nick Drake not been mentioned yet?
Don't overlook Tanglewood's either - superb guitars
Okay I'll work on that. Thanks a lot for the crit, it's been hugely appreciated.

Anyone else, feel free to add your opinion.
Sweet Jesus, what I'd do with that money :O

In any case, I'd recommend a Warmoth

I definitely dig it. It flows well. Not too over the top. Am I correct in assuming the first line is a GY!BE reference?


That it is; those guys (along with Mono) are some of my biggest influences

I really like this, apart from just a couple lines. "A celestial wire to a greater good." and "We perceived a peaceful blue" both don't seem to fit in with the overall feeling I got from this. Whereas most of it is wonderfully honest, personal, told from an incredibly human narrator's eyes, those two lines feel far too detached and analytical. Especially the word "perceived". That doesn't sound at all like something the narrator would say.

Pretty much everything else is great. Just change those two lines.


Thanks man, that was the feel I was going for; wasn't sure if I got it or not.
I get what you're saying about those two lines, reading back on it. How about "a fine wire to the greater good" and "we gazed upon a peaceful blue"
Seeing these guys at Soundwave hopefully
I think this is a great piece, but has a lot more potential. Just refine it, and smooth out the rough patches mentioned above, and you'll be on to a winner
We all need an antenna to heaven;
A celestial wire to a greater good.


A guiding hand,
A softly whispered word.


It was the final, dying days of Autumn
When we scrambled, like criminals,
onto the roof of the house next door.
We lay together, hand in hand,
Watching the sky transcend.


We perceived a peaceful blue
Give way to the grey.


The thunder split the skies,
And you squeezed tighter.


And with every raindrop
We'd steal a breath,
Until the sky was black,
And we'd breathe no more.


another post-rockish song. Any and all crit is greatly appreciated, thanks for reading.

seriously £500? just phoned a music store and they said about £150?


First thing to learn is; guitar stores will always rip you off. Always.
Hey, thanks a lot man
Put the original pups back in it, and either sell the DiMarzio's separately or put the in the new guitar
