There isn't really a set height that u need to bend to. It is best to do it by ear. Instead of with the tuner, try playing the tenth fret, then bend the eighth until it sounds like the tenth. Not only is it practise bending, but u train ur ear.
i personally play the chord and decide when to use the hammerons by ear. I also partially palm mute for that chord. Ur lucky that it is such a recognizable chord, u dont have to play it perfect for people to know the song.
I was recently recommended the Andy Aledort DVD called "Lead Guitar." I was also a bit interested in his Axis: bold as love DVD. However, i cant seem to find any places that have it. I was wondering where I could either order it or buy it. Keep in mind that I live in Ontario(Canada) Thanks.
I am going to buy a new guitar soon, to replace my fender squire strat (its cheap) but i have been playing it for 3 years, and i have gotten used to the narrow fretboard and the small spaces between strings. I was wondering how long it will take to get comfortable with a different fretboard. Also, are there any guitars with narrow fretboards? I was thinking of getting a Godin detour by the way.
Hey guys, I am soon going to be playing with my cousin, who is a great flute player,(and not a bad guitar player). I was just wondering if there are many songs that have a guitar and flute in them. All i can think of is Cant you see by the Marshall Tucker Band. Any style would be appreciated. Thanks
cool, good job. It was impressive how u can play the piano part on guitar, cuz it sounded good. Ur voice was pretty good, a bit off sometimes. To improve I would recommend projecting ur voice( if that makes any sense) Good start! Could u crit mine (sig)
definitely sounds unique. Even though rap isn't my style, it would be pretty original to have a piano as the main instrument in a rap song. Try adding chords with ur left hand on the piano to give it more depth. Could u crit mine? (sig)
good job. I was surprised how it sounded like all 300 of ur band influences. lol. I especially like the palm muting parts. Maybe to make that part stand out, try sing a bit differently. In some parts the guitar seems overly distorted as well. Keep going with ur vocal lessons and ull be set and have a good song. Could u crit mine? (sig)
I like the upbeat feel, and reggae parts. MAybe to make the progression from intro to chords better add a drum fill. Other than that good job. The bass should be turned up a bit since it has a good line too. Thanks for the crit.
Good Job! I liked it, but i think for the climax try and play one of the riffs higher on the neck and faster,(or maybe slower, just change it up a bit) and if u combined that with the drum ending, it would be really good
I really liked it, not many suggestions i could give. On the recording end, maybe make the guitar solos a bit louder. For the vocals maybe take away some of the high notes so u can have more power. But an overall great job! Could u crit me at:
I can see some potential here. I am no expert but i would recommend taking a bit of reverb off the guitar. I like the chorus, but there might be a bit too much going on. Maybe have one of the instruments do something a bit simpler. Good start and very unique!
Hey everyone, I am looking for a song that has contains 2 guitar parts. preferably one with strumming and the other with a bit of a solo, or more strumming. I am looking for songs that are a bit mellower form of rock, and nothing 2 complicated. The 2 guitarist are both intermediate in terms of skill. Thanks in advance!
I'm 15 now, 13 when I started liking classic rock more, instead of Blink 182. I think I stopped liking Blink when i played one of their songs, made a mistake, then realized that the mistake made it just like another one of their other songs!
the guitar reminds me a bit of ben harper, and is very laid back. One thing you could do is try and make the vocals a bit louder, but you should still keep that almost whispering singing style you have. Good job!
At a music camp I was talking to a kid that is a couple years younger than me. I asked him if he liked RHCP and he said he really liked scar tissue. Then he started singing "Give it away, give it away, give it away now!" I replied:um that isn't scar tissue. Him: Oh.
