I have a Breedlove D25/SRe acoustic guitar, and I keep breaking strings. I recently changed brands to Martin Lifespan, and I just broke the Low D.. But it's not broken like it snapped on a bend or something, it looks like the outer coating snapped off near the bridge, but the whole string is still intact without any sort of tightness. And idea why this might be happening? I use medium picks as well, if that has anything to do with it.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who plays this amazing game.
Basically, Terraria is 2D Minecraft. But you can build many more things, there are far more monsters, and there are several bosses you can summon that drop many more rare things. If you do not play it, buy it on Steam and begin now. If you do play it, discuss. If enough interest is shown I may make a group.
I'm working on beating Skeletron with a friend right now, any advice? :P
I'm trying to run Minecraft multiplayer, and my system constantly over heats when I try multiplayer but runs okayish (with a lot of lag) in single player. I think the problem is lack of RAM, would buying a 15-20 dollar RAM stick fix this problem?
Specs, if needed: Microsoft Windows XP Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20 GHz 3.19 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
Consistency is something that comes over time. The amount of times you play something helps too, if you're trying to learn a piece play it over and over again because you'll begin to develop muscle memory over the song and playing the right notes will come naturally to you.
I would start with electric, at least for some time- generally the action (distance from fretboard to the strings) is lower so it is easier to press down the strings as a beginner.
On the other side of things if you were to start with an acoustic, you would learn more fingerpicking styles sooner and an electric would seem a lot easier (also heavier ) when you started playing that.
Blackbird is a rather complicated fingerpicking piece to begin with- it just takes practice to get up to singing and playing at the same time. Its the same as learning how to play any song- practice makes perfect.
I write my solos like I write my papers- with a theme.
You should start by laying down a rhythm guitar lick, as it gives you something to build off of. Then put in a simple riff- the "hook" or the "chorus" of your solo. Play that through a few times and when you really feel the riff chugging along start soloing. Solo for however long you please but try to stay around that same "Theme" established by the riff you began with. After a few minutes go back to the hook and if you have other guitarists jamming with you, have them solo and if you're alone just go to another solo.
I think of solos the same way as songs as well- with the "solo" stuff being verses, the "hook" as a chorus and maybe a key change or something as a type of bridge.
I personally would recommend just starting with chords, until you build a sort of "internal metronome"- when you can strum along to a beat perfectly you should be able to start confidently building riffs/solos over it
Sit and count "1, 2, 3, 4," out loud in a steady, constant beat. Tap your foot along as well. Start by playing a C or a G (something easy) chord, one strum per beat. Keep doing that for 2-3 minutes, and start two strums, continue until your comfortable, and then start strumming patterns as you please. Maybe solo over it to but always constantly be counting out "1, 2, 3, 4" and tapping along with it. do this for 10-15 minutes every day and your rhythm should start to improve, at least for basic 4 beat measures. You can start expanding into different time signatures when you're comfortable with 4/4
