Welcome to a revolutionary new technique to learn guitar.

love this idea. A great way to learn!

 

As a drummer foremost, i learnt songs without learning the basics, it actually made it harder to play. Going back and relearning techniques made it easier to learn songs down the track.

 

I can play power chords on guitar, but suck at anything requiring any level of skill- an example would be Metallica songs- I'm Great until a solo comes along!

I've taken the exercises from Steve Vai's 30 Hour Workout & expanded out all the "etc"s up to fret 13 so there's more than the printed 1-2 repetitions of each pattern, & made each exercise its own section for Riff Repeater. I then recorded the output from GuitarPro w/ the metronome on & imported it to play around with. My main issue now is trying to figure out what an appropriate base tempo is for the audio track- I tried to imagine what a "skilled" player would play it at (pretty damn fast) & figure everyone else will be using riff repeater at 50% (or lower) to start off with- or should I be setting it lower overall? I don't really want to feel like a complete n00b by having to set the speed ridiculously low (not to mention it takes a while to set it down that far), but then again, you can always slow it down, but you can't make it go faster...

I was actually thinking of having "lyrics" with the names of each exercise (e.g. "Angular Exercise II"), held for the duration of each section. Shouldn't be that hard to do. I should have some time to work on it this weekend.

 

On a related note, I've got a 'Glare Guitar School' magazine w/ a bunch of exercises from Teru & Hizaki of Versailles/Jupiter (among other v-kei artists), & 1 "song" by another guy that's basically a huge etude of multiple techniques, which might be fun to put in. The Versailles exercises are extremely short, though (10-37s), so I'd probably put them all in 1 "song" by sections, like the Steve Vai thing. You can see some of those here.

Here's me:  I'm 52 and started playing rhythm guitar when I was 11 - but I cannot read music and know very little about music theory.  So I feel that I've wasted 41 years.  I bought RS2014 (and recently the original) so that I could learn to play lead guitar.  So I'm an ol' dog trying to learn new tricks.  To be honest, most of the songs I've seen are geared to a younger audience (no, I didn't say all), so I must forego many of the custom DLCs that are available because they are groups and/or artists that I either don't care for or simply don't know.

 

That having been said, from what I've read within this thread alone I am interested in maybe learning by ear as one person suggested (if it can be done) and learning scales.  So I hope something will be forthcoming along these lines and look forward to whatever you folks with the real talent can create to assist folks like myself.

My biggest issue is not losing my fingers when everything speeds up... I can play a lot of stuff, everything that i have learned from rocksmith, i just really have a problem with losing my fingers lower on the fret board.. Like down at fret 17, string 1, 2, and 3. Any tips on this?

I was thinking of putting together a piece of cDLC to help people create scale maps using a method called The Hopscotch Method.

 

I'm guessing that I can have different keys for the different difficulty levels..? And then allow people to change the speed themselves..? If I do things that way then you can have different keys and different BPMs in one piece of cDLC, right..?

 

No idea how this all works tbh, have started work on a song but thought I'd be better off doing something simpler to begin with whilst I get used to messing around with EOF lol

 

Am planning on doing one for each scale and was thinking about doing them with just a Metronome sound in the background.

 

Should I link to them here when done or should I upload them to the database..?
