Hey, so I just got a my first seven string guitar and I'm loving it so far. There's one thing though...I want to understand a bit more if there is any that I can do with a seven string. I know everything on a normal guitar but is there some things I can practice or techniques unique to a seven string? I'm looking into incorporating the 7 string into the songs I write now.
Hi, I though I would post my progress as I have been a big user of Rocksmith the past few years. I got into a habit of playing a good 20mins a day booting up the PC on the morning and doing one lesson practice track and a run of what ever song I am working on. I have found I flitter between songs often depending on what I am listening too at the time. I got a little down the other day when I realised that I don't feel I am really making the kind of process I need to. I still can't play a full song and and totally messed up when a new chord is shown to me in a song. I decided to try a different approch. I went to Justinguitar.com and started his beginner course. I have done this before I had Rocksmith, but now find it much easier to get through the practice sessions and the concepts. Seeing how these skills translate into a song makes practicing much easier. I don't think that I would have this appreciation withough seeing a song flow in the rocksmith format. The speed of changes etc is hard to conprehend just by listening to a track. I am finding that in a short time of recording my chord changes in a min and breaking down parts of songs in the "beginner song list" I am remembering major chord names and the sound they make without the backing track that Rocksmith seem to have on all songs and practice tracks. No don't get me wrong I love Rocksmith and it has helped me keep motivated and given me the goal of playing my favorite song on it, but I don't feel that it nurtures the beginner in the right ways. The Major chord scale is the main one for me as soon as I focused on getting these to memory it made me feel like I was progressing. I hope this helps someone that is in the same situation. Cheers
What are some good tips to be on guitar played a bit before have some experience not the best, but like warm ups and tips for Rocksmith. Warm upsTricks and TipsSongs?How long I would like to learn more of the metal songs like 5FDP, Pantera, Metallica, ect..
This thread will be constantly updated. Also - sorry for my english, I'll try to be as accurate as possible. I don't have time to leave feedback at every custom I play. I wanted to gather everything in one place, so I created this thread. Here are some tips to make your customs better. Let's begin. 1. ALWAYS turn off the "Ignore capo/tuning" function in EOF. I played an Drop C# custom recently and this is what I saw: http://i57.tinypic.com/167w5k2.jpg These are chords for an E Standard chart, not for a Drop C# chart. Also if you turn that function off, when charting a custom that needs a capo, someone can learn that song without a capo, knowing just the chords that he should play. 2. Sustains A. Apply sustains ONLY, when it's necessary. If you don't understand what I'm talking about, then look at this: http://i61.tinypic.com/wkha38.jpg It looks opaque and sometimes covers other notes. It's often a result of GuitarPro import, when you don't remove the sustains. B. DON'T DO sustains as long as possible. It is a common problem with arpeggios, but not only. An example: http://i57.tinypic.com/5uhhk4.jpg An example of too long sustains in EOF: http://i.imgur.com/kyCp3vr.png It looks very opaque. Don't apply sustains, but if you REALLY want to do them, then do them at most this long: http://i.imgur.com/NKw5GoK.png 3. Slides A. LISTEN to the slides. There are many slides in the customs that are applied, but I actually can't hear them in the songs. They're mostly present, when you just have to shift between power chords. B. Apply slides CORRECTLY. The problem lies in the chart, where the slides are often charted like this: http://i.imgur.com/lfGP8YG.png and not like this: http://i.imgur.com/XPGwcMa.png Examples of uncorrectly applied slides: http://i60.tinypic.com/2ms39s0.jpg http://i58.tinypic.com/akbk1e.jpg Examples of correctly applied slides: http://i61.tinypic.com/9kxw7b.jpg http://i61.tinypic.com/2qvdu1u.jpg http://i62.tinypic.com/30jgxso.jpg http://i57.tinypic.com/67k48m.jpg Just remember to use the "Linknext" status in EOF to do multiple slides like the last one you see above. There still a lot things to point out, so I will update this thread. I was just afraid that I will forget some things, so I started it.
