    But is it possible to do that to a whole tune? If a song is in a major key (I'm not necessarily talking jazz here), is it possible to do some work on it to play it in a minor key? Is there someone who can explain the method (if there is), or a...(more)

    Dear Charles and everyone, thanks a lot for your helpful replies, I'm learning standards right now, and I've learned a few new helpful sites along the way. Charles, just to get this straight, you mean that the chords are transposed to a minor ...(more)

    Hi all, I was just wondering, after playing guitar for a few years, whether it was hard/a lot of extra work to try a bass as an additional instrument...Are there a lot of extra things to learn? (not that I mind, I'd just like a view of that) I...(more)

    Hi all, I've been playing for a few years now, and now I'm trying to teach myself how to play jazz, but I had a few questions: (sorry, quite a lot :-) ) 1. I read this: "Any sequence of interval skips, 3rds, 7ths, 9ths, etc., can easily be ap...(more)

    Hi all, long time no see... Well, I've made the decision: I'm replacing my starterset guitar & amp with something that is meant to last for ... well, possibly for ever, assuming that boredom isn't a factor... Since this is the first time I'l...(more)

    I was thinking, don't you know anybody who plays guitar too? You could just play with that person once or so, and see what your strengths and weaknesses are. Or you can do what I did: I'm 19 and have been teaching myself for the past two years,...(more)

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if y'all could give me a few pointers here. I'm looking to buy a guitar again, new or used. I play a variety of styles, but mostly rock/blues. A little less jazz, and the occasional metal song. Someone already...(more)

    Hey guys, I have a question: When I'm analyzing a song, and it's in a certain key, but then there's one chord that doesn't fit this key, what do I do? for example: Em Bm A C Em G A C or: Englishman In NY, which contains both a G and a Gdim7 ...(more)

    and what if I want to learn a complete metallica song, like fade to black (just to name one). Would I have to forget about it, or does it just take a lot of practice to get to that speed? Are there any people here who have been in the same sit...(more)

    Hi people, I was wondering some things about speed. I mean, I can get my scales up to about 500-600 bpm fairly easy, but then it's like running into a wall and it seems I just can't get past a point in that area. Am I doing something wrong, o...(more)

    hi all, i was wondering if anyone knew any lessons to get started on arpeggio's (it does help speed right?), possible with video, cause cyberfret told me to "roll" the finger, but I'm not quite sure of the technique... Also, are there any meth...(more)

    Hey Jeff, wow, thanks a lot!! During the 2 years that I've been playing, I have only been to a teacher twice, to check on my technique... I've studied scales, chord construction & related subjects, and I've just learned about modes... not...(more)

    Must say, went to see Springsteen live yesterday, I thought it was very impressing... I never realised what a beautiful falsetto he could do... Really great show btw...

    I'm quite surprised no one mentioned the first solo of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb... Now there's passion for ya. It just speaks for the whole song

    Hey guys, I listened to some Queen last week and I just started wondering if any of you ever tried to recreate that typical Brian May sound... Any tips on how to do this? Thanks in advance
