Sup guys. Basically the problem is, my amplifier isn't giving any sound from the jack, but the speaker is working like a charm. When I turn the amp on, I can hear the distortion going through the speaker if I stick my ear next to it, but, even at max volume and max gain, there is no signal going through the jack. I already opened the box and checked if any cable needed to be soldered, but everything is fine, and what ****s me up the most is that this shit happened overnight, by itself. No one did anything to the amp, I just try to play the guitar the next day and I ****ing notice this. I already tried playing with other guitars and jack-to-jack cables, with no success. Should I just replace the jacks and see if that's the problem? Thanks in advance.
So I uploaded my very first youtube cover, and I would like YOU to judge and criticize my guitar tone and shit. Vocals are shit, yeah, since I can't equalize them properly, but I'm still learning to do it. But I'd like some real feedback on my guitar tone. Thanks in advance.
I would like to note that this is incredibly rare, as I've done something like 60 or 70 covers on Youtube, and despite have the original audio directly on top of my playing nothing has ever been blocked.
Alright, I just needed some clarifications, since the music industry is a bitch nowadays... Thanks for all the help guise
You can upload covers. You just can't use the adsense feature for making money. Also, Youtube will identify what song is being played and give the owner ad revenue, as well as block the video from playing in countries where the song can't be legally streamed through Youtube. I think they might also give the owner the right to have your video removed if they'd like, but it's never happened to any of my covers.
EDIT: This all still applies to you playing on top of all or part of the original track.
Please tell me you're recording yourself doing acoustic covers on your webcam
is actually recording guitars with a shure sm57

This, and as long as you don't just make a muted video of you pretending to play, put the song over it, and put it up as a serious cover there's no problem lol
Well, vocals and guitars will be played by me, but the drums and basslines are actually the song's original ones, some guy on youtube managed to separate the tracks and I just felt like using them, since I can't record neither drums nor bass, and the .wav from GP are shit. Is it still cool?
Finally I've decided to record some covers and put them on youtube, but I don't know if I need to get an authorization from the original owners of the song, because of copyright claims and shit. Do I need the authorization, or can I just put the cover if I feel like it? It's my first time doing this sort of shit, so yeah....
I anchor. I play better when anchoring. It's just a matter of taste, really. People say when you anchor that your right hand motion gets reduced, yet I find these statements to be false, at least for me.
If it is in the key of Cmaj, then yes. What I talked about earlier were the tetrads (4note chord - 1/3/5/7 degrees of the scale)) of Cmaj, Ifm you arrange it in triads (3note chord - 1/3/5 degrees of the scale), the chord progresion in the key of Cmaj would be C-Dm-Em-F-G-Am-Bdim - > C ionian.
Also, you shouldn't see modes as scales, but as a way to harmonize scales.
Need to print some stuff from gp6, the problem is they come in small size, like, in a quarter of a page. I've tried changing the printing size from letter to A4, and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions?
PS: I've made my searches before posting the thread.
Play other music styles, force your creativity. Learn your favorite guitarist's masterpieces, and figure out how they accomplished to create a lick, or steal it. Train harder techniques, like sweep picking, and incorporate it in your soloing. LEARN MUSIC THEORY, so you can understand where the tonic, 3rd and 5th stay at, so you can easily make inverted arpeggios, and study scales, major and minor modes first, then you can go to the harmonized modes.
This was an idea by Zack Uidl, one of which I liked, and advise it.
What you should do is force your creativity - restrict your improvising - How to restrict? It's like, improvising on one string only, or doing pedal points, or just sweeps, or doing that intense half step bend with the most amazing vibrato, etc... Get it? PM me if not
Now, my suggestion: play slowly first, with intense vibratos and bends, and with few notes. Gradually, start adding more notes, and you'll start getting comfortable with improvising. Trust me.
You don't have your guitar in tune. You lift your fingers from the strings more than you should. Practice 1-2-3-4 exercises slowly, lifting your fingers as little as possible. You are too tense. Lightnen up, and relax, we can all reach the top of the stairway, and we all will. Some will faster than others, but we all will.
You just have to practice everything, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER, SLOWER at first! You should repeat this until you can't get it out of your head.
the original one, which is played in Eb tuning. On other words, it's played half step down standard tuning. So, instead of playing an open low E with your 6th string, you would be playing a low Eb on your 6th string.
On other words, the tuning on that GPfile is wrong, but you can train it in any tuning, and then record it on the original tuning.
1- The correct technique for bending is to put your thumb over the neck. Don't worry about it, you're doing it correctly.
2-those xxx on the tab mean you play dead notes, like you're doing. Palm muting is done with the palm of your picking hand, and it's represented on tabs as a PM|------------- over the tab, meaning that when that symbology is present, you mute the strings, until it is over.
What if by some chance my index finger is the one doing the bend though? I could only mute the strings that are below my index finger which would be the ones below it. When thats the case do I just use my palm in my right hand to mute the strings above the string?
Only the tip of the finger should be touching the string on which you apply the vibrato. With that, you can mute the higher strings (counting E as higher, e as lower) with your index finger, doing a sort of arc with it, muting them. For the lower strings, you'd better mute them with the palm of your hand. You could try muting them with your thumb, but I'd guess it's harder.
I would like to purcharse a laptop, which has to be suited for gaming and working. At least 4gb ram, 512mb graphics. HD can have any capacity. Which one would be best? I'm currently thinking on buying an Asus a52FX3, but I'd like to have you people's opinion. Thanks in advance.
3 years ago, when I still couldn't set up my guitar, I took it to a guitar shop. Left it, and 30mins later went to pick it up. This happened 500km (700 miles?) away from where I am now.
The next set up was made by my old teacher, and that was when he told me that the truss rod of my guitar's neck had the screw missing. He said it was fine I could just get a new one. This has never bothered me, but now, I changed the string gauge (to a lighter one), so my strings are buzzing... tried solving the problem by raising the action on the bridge (LFR, btw), but it didn't work.
I'm not going to the store and have them give me back the screw, so, I would like to ask you people, how does one install a screw on the truss rod? If I wasn't clear, here's a pic explaining what I mean.
