Then don't post advice that is wrong. If you are playing over an A minor progression you are not playing D or E minor pentatonic. F and B are the notes missing from A minor pentatonic that make it Natural minor. You are playing A minor.
You're not playing modally just because you've shifted positions on the fretboard. Over an A minor progression, the notes ABCDEFG are A minor, regardless of the order in which you play them. Save modes for modal music.
Noob question but how do i harmonize for two guitars?
why have you wasted your time to get an Ultimate-Guitar name, if you don't even play? but anyway, i personally don't like strats at all, in any way shape or form. they have a very high pitched, weak tone to them, i believe the gibson is not only better for tone quality, but for learning how to play, they're sturdy guitars, and it's tough to make them sound bad, where as a strat can very easily sound weak, and have a high pitched tone even when carefully adjusted.
How many of you play by ear?
And how long did it take to learn if you weren't born with it?
I was always under the impression that freebird was in the key of g major, but upon investigating the chord progression, there seems to be an F major chord in there that doesn't belong in the key of gmajor. Is this song in a different key than G? Thanks
I have a question - If I were to play a fast metal riff just using a couple of power chords (eg E5, F#5 and G5) then what scales/modes could I use to solo over it? Im confused because there's no 3rd in the chord.. thanks.
my friend is buying one of these higher end mexican made model strat like the road house. but i argue him to buy the one i provided link for above.
is not a drunk or drug addict
thanks, and thanks to everyone who's pitched in (pun very much intended)
hi iv been a guitarist for 16 years..im into any type of guitar playing. i wont list as i'd be here all day !
im into a heavy riffs melodic, blues, pop rock anything really...but i'd like to knwo why there is so many metal players out there?
is it becouse there is so much scope in the style or is it that the mighty overdrives and distortions cover up shady playing ?
dont get me wrong i love distortions to and many other f.x
but i cant get my head round why there is so many lovers of this music?
guitar playing is one thing? but within a band community the rest is pretty aggressive, i.E vocals and drums.. is it the built up tension of male ego or is it a cover up for sloppy playing.. yes i know there is some mighty fine metal players out there!
but look at the likes of Hendrix n Jimmy Page n even Clapton.. they aint agressive n nasty ?
again dont get me wrong i like a good pout now n then with a good riff here n there.
i just dont get how there is so many . even on ug there is a overload of metalers.
i dont dislike it..but intrueged to know why so so many .
sorry if i sound anti metal..im not each to there own i say...bt ya know..fecking loads of em..lol
id like to hear your views on this...p's dont give me abuse for not hailing the mighty metal..i just wanna know is all ...not a better place to ask than in here.
p's i have a few uploads of my own songs...nothing special..but i like it !
So..when I write a song I usually listen record a rhythm then improvise a solo over that until I get something that sounds right. Then I usually just write the general notes of the solo. But anyway, I hear a lot of people say they just improvise the solo every time. What do you guys think? Improvise or Compose solos?
Looks like the Hot Rails is the winner...sounds good.
I'm trying to write a little solo for a song. I'm difficulty finding a way to improvise over the top of it. The closes i've come is using A sharp pentatonic minor.
The song is On My Mind by Powerfinger. Basically im trying to solo over the rhythm.
The prog is:
A sharp 5 --> F sharp 5 --> D sharp 5
Is it possible to find the intervals for the key of D by doing the following? Is there more information here that I can see?
First I found the notes in the D Major scale by using the WWHWWWH 'formula'
This is what I got: D, E, F#, G, A, B, C#, D
Now, can I use this information to find the intervals for the key of D?
I suck at improvising. How can i get better?
the Fx threw me off cuz i've never seen it before in writing out major scales,
i've only use it in modes or chord construction.
B# doesnt exist.
who did you auditoin for that asked for a writen test
id definately stay away from any band thats uptight like that
^ that's just being stubborn. if the chords imply all the notes in the melodic minor scale, why can't you just call it melodic minor? why do you have to go into chromatics when there's such an easier way of putting it?
In music we are doing a topic on variation, i am the only person who has wrote my own bass line which we HAD to strat on in the first lesson, everyone else copied off the board
anyway, the rhythm part sounds rather sinister, its at 140bpm, standard 4/4 time, each note lasts a whole bar and it was written using the whole half diminished scale for some information about it - heres the line itself.
the drums are rather simple two, it has 2 bass drums each a semitone apart in pitch and played on each beat - sounding like the jaw theme tune (Da Dun Da Dun...) and alot of the weirder sounds on off beats to give it a dark kind of sound that axis of perdition have in most of their songs.
the problem is, i have to make a lead part over it when I'm finished with the rhythm section and have no idea how to make it sound so sinister. any hints towards this? if you need more information about it so far, i can probably answer them.
thanks in advance
So is the idea if it sounds good and seems to fit, it is OK, even if not in the key? A bit like playing the odd chromatic note in a scale to add a little extra to the music?
Has anyone ever heard of the brand Wesley? Cuz I am looking 4 a first guitar that ahs 2 be cheap, and so I can decide if it is 4 me...
the iceman is a roughed up dean caddy. i hate fking copy cats
Take the E for example, what makes the E an E chord, and if I were to try to figure out other variations of that chord, how would I know which notes to use. The open E is composed of 6 notes; E B G# E B E. Is it an E chord because it has more than one E, is it because the first and last note start with E (Which I doubt considering the breakdown of other chords). How exactly does this all work?
Heya, my band is playing "Foxy Lady" by Jimi Hendrix, and I'm having trouble finding anything interesting to play. The solo takes place over an F#7add#9 chord(the way we play it). I usually use the pentatonic to highlight the changes between chords, and the solo just sounds boring and drawn-out when I use the pentatonic alone. I'm also not really sure what scales 7add#9 chords are built from.
Any help would be appreciated.
hold the string down more from the side than the top
Just reach deep down and access the intellectual part of your mind for two minutes to read a couple of measley paragraphs instead of being like every other mindless jackass who posts shit in forums. Reading something for two minutes or maybe for you, ten minutes shouldn't be too strainful on your brain either way, should it?
