http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fuMF3Bjr84 Can anyone tell me what Jeff is doing at 2:42? He sort of shakes his picking hand but not with the whammy bar in it? And it produces a sound that is impossible with the whammy bar.
I've also seen him do it during the intro to Goodbye Pork Pie Hat (the Live at Ronnie Scotts version)
i have never really "got" hendrix till lately and start to slowly listen to him. it took a documentary, a book and some dvd's but i think i am getting why he was special. now still to me he is no jimmy page but i get what he was trying to play. fairly cool stuff. cheers all!
think - it just like doing a workout. You are not going to bench press until you tear your muscles off the bone. You stop when it starts hurting. Each time you go a bit further - go through more pain. It is the same deal with downstrokes. Stop when it hurts but remember to go a bit further each time.
I hurt to when I do a lot of downstroking, but thats because I hardly ever do it.
^this, lets just say that jimi hendrix did learn solely by ear. That would mean that he can only copy or create music. Therefore, how would he had known the pentatonic scales that uses so often in his live solos
Oh and the reason why I don't think Dream Theater fits in well for this thread is because they've got a Keyboardist, who pretty much removes the need for a second guitarist. Also, DT is pretty much an orchestra by itself, everyone in that band is technically gifted.
This incites a rather good point. I can remember Eric Clapton stating that he had some difficulties when he went from John Mayall to Cream. In John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, he was able to go crazy as the keyboardist provided much of the rythum. However when he moved to Cream, he had to be both ryhtum and lead. Case in point, compare the instrumental versions of Steppin Out from the John Mayalls to the Cream days. I personally feel the John Mayall version is the better.
The study of science doesn't require a certain body composition, so I'm not sure what you were driving at there.
Archeo is simply pointing out that, like most people, TS used the word theory in a completely inappropriate manner. A scientific theory is one that has withstood rigorous testing and calculation. That is why it bothers people of a scientific mind to hear people wandering around calling things "nothing but a theory".
he has a point, I am the top of my physics class at uni, and I am by no means fat. I do not share the opinion of the original poster.
This is what I say. Eienstien would not have witnessed much of the songwriting genius that we saw in the later part of the century. How would his theory of quamtum physics affect this?
G Major for Example (G A B C D E F# G). Instead of starting at any G and doing the Whole/Half step routine, actaually look at these notes and then work it out. Do this with enough scales all over the fretboard and you'll get. I am in the process of doing this right now. I have gone from knowing notes up until the 5th fret and now i know them right down until the 12th fret and have a half decent knowledge after that point
I've got a brand new USA Fender Stratocaster American Standard, but I dont have a program to make my pictures smaller to put them on this website. This is something I would love to do; share my guitar with the greater UG community.
