sweet dudes, just send me some info about yourselves like experience and influences and such
Are you a lead guitarist? Bassist? Drummer? Want to be in a band?

I'm willing to try all types of music, I'll play guitar also and sing, but if you want to take the mic sure, I can cover lead, drums and bass if u want to switch out and such, I just want to have fun. I also have a make-shift studio in my house, so we can record music there as well, and I have several connections for gigs! I Just need the music and the people!


Just write below and lemme know if ur interested

Oh I would also like if u were a Senior in HS or a in college, thanks in advance!
would slither by velvet revolver be to hard to start with?
which song should i start with? hells bells or thunderstruck or walk this way, or sweet emotion??....or if u have an actual suggestion, i'll take that too my personal fave guitarist is slash, but he's a lil outta my league i think for right now

i also know rhythm guitar very well, i sing and play for a band, but wanna work on lead, i know some scales and some lead style licks as well as a few things here and there, but idk where to start...a song? thanks in advance
well, here lemme choose actual songs, hells bells or thunderstruck or walk this way, or sweet emotion??....or if u have an actual suggestion, i'll take that too my personal fave is slash, but he's a lil outta my league i think

Well, if you want say the major scale of A, take the minor scale, and pop it down 3 frets, so it starts at F#. But, don't start at F#, start at A. So you're playing the F# minor scale and the minor shape, but by using the A notes as the root note, you get the major scale, if you get me. That would help for major songs.

The way I said it was a bit complicated, but yeah.


holy hell it finally makes sense now! thanks!
Well i know the pentatonic scale very well, well the basic form then the blues form of it, and the major and minor scale just depends on the fret it starts at right? other then that its the same shape huh?
I'm a good rhythm player, i sing and play rhythm for my band, but i wanna get better at lead, i know some licks and riffs and such, but idk where to start or what songs? help? aerosmith? or ac/dc? or something totally different? i mean i know several red hot chili peppers song with the solo and such, but i want some more difficult stuff, thanks in advance
as above

thanks in advance, just some easy beginner stuff for me to start on
yah im thinking about that now actually
I recently bought an RP300 off of a friend, and im playing around with it (and im totally lost) and I'm in between returning the thing and getting my channel switch back from him...and my 80 bucks for the pedal...or should i stick with it and learn how to use it? It's pretty cool i guess, just cant work the darn thing that well yet....

What do you think? PS if u suggest i keep it, could u give me links to a place that could help me find patches and such? thanks in advance
Well first off i dont want to copy him solely im just looking to learn from his technique and scales, of course i want to develop my own sound :P
I love slash, and i love his tone, and I love his influences too! I also like this balance between old school rock and blues yet its still very current, so basically i wanna start to improve like him....what kinda scales/licks does he use?

Heck i just want some advice on how to capture his tone (right now im playing an epi LP through a vox valvetronics) and how to play his style thanks in advance
Quote by Blompcube
get one while you can - i think epiphone discontinued them...

Man i best do that then huh? im just saving up as fasts as possible but its hard with school and the economy :\ (no political debates please)
PS: Stratopower CLEAN UP UR ROOM!
Quote by Stratopower


Here is my Firebird, and yeah it's perfect for Foo Fighters, and it can handle some Metallica, not realllllll heavy stuff, but can handle blues really well!


THATS A BEAUTY! and im pretty sure the pick ups are the same as the epi LPs and the epi explorers and they handle metallica quite well
How versatile is it? I like to play blues and classic rock which i know that could handle, but how bout Foo Fighters styled rock....and Metallica styled metal?

Thanks in Advance!

There are about a million Slash posers there, a few of them are likely to have gotten the tone right.


sweet thanks
Quote by robl95

Its called ur Imagination. its this new crazy thing, idk...its wierd...its like..idk...i nvr heard of it before. but dam it works real well...idk how...

Seriously? U play guitar, and claim to kno the pentatonic scale. but u can't...string notes together? u haven't played around with it long enough obviously. and if there WAS a site, how do u think THEY would have done it?
Imagination, and creativity are a musicians best friend. use 'em


Good point mate, i guess i should doodle around more still.... thanks for that
okay guys...really thats not cool, im askin an honest question, im misspelt something sorry! forgive me! now back to the topic!
Like I know the Panatonic Scale like the back of my hand and the blues panatonic quite well, i just dont know how to make licks out of those scales and how to string them together...anybody got tips/websites?
ok, now for the wall of text:

Ok so i like (love?) this girl and ive talked to her, for like 6-8 hours every day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, for 1.5 years, so as you can imagine we are crazy close, i was there for her for her ups and downs, and most recently, her break up with her ex boyfriend, of whom broke her heart twice (3 times maybe?). Of course i was here to talk to her, some times until the early hours of the morning (2 AMish), so now she has come out and states she has feelings for me, and we flirt all the time, and talk about EVERYTHING, and i mean it, but she still is hung up about her ex, and he's hung up about her, but to add to the drama, i live in houston, she lives in Oregon (for school), and the ex lives where her family lives, in Fort Worth, and also her ex is my good friend we've been through alot, so now he's denying that i like her, and she likes me, buts she still has feelings for him, as well as me trying to get her to transfer for school over here! i dunno what to do!!!! its just crazy! i dont wanna give up, i could so see myself waking up every morning and staring into her beautiful green eyes!

oh i tell her i love her, and i call her love and babe and stuff and she says she loves me too, she even said im the better of the 2 choices, just...i guess she's gotta get over him...i guess, but she does have feelings for me, and i know it, and so does she, i send her poetry and just sweet things that pop into my head, and she says she blushes, and shes coming to visit me during thanksgiving, she even just told me yesterday that when she came she was planning on kissing me, and she also said she knows her head will be spinning after

she also said, that we're gonna be just friends, cause of the fact she doesnt wanna make me the rebound guy...i know she likes us both, she's stated that hundreds of times to me, and agrees hes not a good choice, shes just gotta get over him also
so i started a band recently, and we wanna start writing, so in class today inspiration just hit me and i wrote this down, and i know its not perfect, but i just wanted some feed back too, i also invision this song to be like starign out with a pretty finger picking riff and some vocals than just explode into a slam u on ur @$$ rock song

Over and out!

Throw away the old, bring in the new
It took a long time to see it through,
I took so long to wake and see!
Now the old is over and out!

That’s why the old is over and out!
That’s why the old is over and out!
I took to long to wake and see!
Now the old is over and out

A simple life, with many snags
Twisted and warped.
My mind was cold, numb to the truth
Now, the old is over and out.

Now the old is over and out,
Now the old is over and out,
I seemed out of luck and out of time
Now the old is over and out!

How could I not see?
What I was,
How could I not see?
O what I was!

Dug in to deep to see the light
Now the old is out bring in the new
Now the old is out bring in the new
Now the old is over and out

Dug in to deep, to see the light
Now the old is out bring in the new
Now the old is out bring in the new
Now the old is over and out

How could I not see?
What I was,
How could I not see?
O what I was!

Dug in to deep, to see the light
Now the old is out bring in the new
Now the old is over and out
Now the old is over and out
Dug in to deep, to see the light
Now the old is out bring in the new
Now the old is over and out
Now the old is over and out

How did I go so long, blind to the truth,
Now the old is over and out
Now the old is over and out
Now the old is over and out

NOW THE OLD IS OVER AND OUT!

No problem and if you ever need any help or advice feel free to message me.

thanks a bunch again (first friend in UG! haha)
Quote by scream_it
Just like with anything, practice. Just keep writing and trying to expand your thoughts and vocabulary. Explore different writing styles and try using metaphors and such to try and get away from the basic style. You'll get better.

Thanks a bunch mate! ima good like writer, but not to fly with poetry and lyrics, but ill get better, i practice as much as a i can
Quote by Dreadknut
You shouldn't write lyrics to "match" the piece, the lyrics should be a separate entity. Then you can try to work what you want to say into your riffs, but sometimes you will have to change the riff if it does not suit.
Your lyrics rhyme too much and have no substance, it seems lyrically immature. You need to delve deeper if those are the types of words you want to use, because I didn't get a picture from what you have written, just the impression you were whinging excessively and rhyming.
DUDE I TOTALLY AGREE! i just am very immature in my lyrical writting life
i dunno what to do to get from crawling, to walking to running
Quote by Ninjamonkey767
Explain "reference".

like i see how they have verses and chorus structures and how they build up tension and such, im a very rational thinker so i analize the structure vs. the content anduse it kinda as a template
Quote by scream_it
Try not rhyming so much to get away from the rap aspect you think you have. A lot of rap is based around consistent rhyming or have parts where several lines in a row are made to rhyme. Like so "Police think they can see me lean, I'm tint so it ain't easy to be seen, When you see me ride by they can see the glean, And my shine on the deck and the TV screen..." Although very basic lyrics they don't seem emo at all, they seem like obvious personal struggle. Try looking at lyrics to your favorite songs for ideas and try to expand your vocabulary to give you more options. Hope I helped.

it did, and i tryied to use foo fighter's lyrics as a "reference" but it ended up to be very similer, see i want their influnece, but i dont wanna copy them
