You know, I'm going to have to learn how to actually play a song and record it. Especially since I might be getting a brand new acoustic guitar that normally costs about $700-$800 for only $200. If I get it, I'll probably never stop playing it. (Well, maybe I exaggerate. I would have to sleep sometime. :roll: )

I hope I can get good enough one day to maybe make a little money on the side by playing.

Its good that you have an objective planned out and that's great. The next step is to set your "guitar time". When i was younger I would rush home from school just to practice for about 4-5 hours day. You need to be focused and have as little disruptions as possible, depending on the goals you have set for yourself.

You're prolly freaked out about the hours i put in (or not). But I can safely say that its better to be focused even for half an hour and have some progress than to practice for many hours but with no defined goal and your attention constantly shifting to other things. ;)

Good luck :)

Did another video guys!! xD

Chords are just a matter of experimenting - the basic ones such as C, D, G and Am should be those you should tackle first.

G -0-------G -2-------G -0-------G -2
D -2-------D -0-------D -0-------D -2

C----------D----------G---------Am

Number = Fret number (from open string - 0)
X = Don't play this string

Ultimate Guitar.com is the best free online resource to help learn new chords, techniques and songs. But if you wanted a more in-depth view (eg. To be able to apply chords to music theory), I'd recommend buying a chord book from a music store like Guitar Center. Lots of chords with finger positioning as well; eventually with some practice you can form pre-memorized chords naturally thanks to muscle memory :D



For guitar tabs i often recommend either Guitar World or Alfred music. Because i notice that fan made tabs are often wrong and such,compared to official tab books. I swear most people who put up fan made guitar tabs don't listen to the songs.

HOW DID I MISS THIS THREAD!?

I play guitar, oh lordy do I play guitar.

My current collection consists of a Washburn 332 Dimebag, a Gibson Flying V, an Alvarez acoustic, a Marshall JCM2000DSL tube half-stack, a Morely Mark Tremonti power wah, a cheap knockoff P-bass, and an Epiphone SG bass.

Oh yea, and metal. A lot of it...and the occasional not quite so metal song.

Are you implying that suggesting that Pat Smear sucked should be more shocking than the fact that Jimi Hendrix sucked? :P

I'm a metalhead as well. I even remember when metal was around on TV and radio,during the 80's and early 90's.

I thought the same thing. Guess metalheads just flock to the same spots.

Also, that's not a love song. If you listen to the words, it's more about those super judgmental types in church. I've had a few too many run-ins with those.

Hahaha judging from that Doubleneck SG I take it you're a fan of Jimmy Page?

I beg to differ ;) Love Buzz by Nirvana. 2:20 to 3:01. Learn it! Learn it like I did!

I did it! I did it! I did it!
I played bass solo for Green onion today! :3 at our local downtown park mallish place.
Though, it's a relatively easy piece, so less risk there.

Congrats, Texas!

I'm gonna have to get new strings for my bass soon. If I'm gonna start this new band, I want my sound to be clear and vivid. My current strings are fraying a bit and that mutes it a little.
