how long would it take me to master the electric guitar?
i perform as a high school student in a professional orchestra. i just picked up a guitar a couple of months ago for the first time. i’ve already been playing violin for 11 years, and can play guitar chords and a lot of rock songs. but i’m not anything special. how much should i practice and how long do you think it would take for me to become really really good?
Rule of thumb to truly *master* anything is 10,000 hours – say three hours a day for ten years.
But you can get *pretty* good with much less than that.
what are the basic chords for electric guitar? D?
im starting to learn how to play guitar, so could you tell me the chords and where you are supposed to place your fingers?
A, D, E, G, all major,
that gives you an awsome song to learn plus the chord diagrams
How do I play this chord on the electric guitar? (with fingering picture)?
See attached screenshot. The chord is called F/A. I’m also having trouble figuring out what to do with another cord marked C/E. If I read the fingering literally off of the image it sounds horrendous. Thanks!
No wonder you may be confused. The image is a regular F barre chord and it’s usually played/fingered as the image shows. The line across the first fret is the first finger, providing the “bar”, or barre as it is properly referred to.
A chord described as F/A is something else (as is C/E). These are so called split chords. In the first example, the F is the chord and the A is the lowest held note/bass in the chord. In this example you will need to hold an F with an open A note in the bass.
C/E is the same – a regular open C chord where you play the open (low) E in the bass.
These and other chords are found a lot of places, including here: http://chordfind.com/ You will see the chord shapes visually on the fretboard. Just tick where it says Special Chords and enter the one you want to find, like C/E or F/A.
There’s more info on barre chords below, should you need it
Learning how to play electric guitar…?
Is there any free sites or programs that can teach me fingering and chords? I can play one-stringers but I have troubles moving my fingers while playing two or more…any advice on how to improve my dexerity?
There are tons of sites that you could go to, some are free some are not, see if any of these help you :
hope this helps, bye !
How to play acoustic singer-songwriter style guitar?
Hi, I’ve been playing electric guitar for over a year and am pretty descent at it. But what i want to start doing is singing while playing acoustic guitar. thing is I’ve devoted all my time into scales and technique so all I can play are major, minor, barre chords, power chords. So to play in the style of Jack Johnson, Jon Foreman (switchfoot). What do I have to learn? More chords? fingerpicking? Also what kind of chords and such? Thanks.
I recommend checking out YouTube. There’s a lot of tutorials there on how to fingerpick tunes. A little bit of “left hand finger work” is also required, of course, but not essential at this point. Start off with some simple three chord songs.

Beginer guitar player! looking for guidance from pros! ?
so, I have had a little guitar for a while, but Ive had it since I was about 11. (im almost 16 now). so I went out yesterday and bought a brand new, bright red acuostic guitar! I have a LITTLE itty bit of experiance from when I was younger (I took lessons for about a year, then stopped.) I have been watching tutorials on youtube to learn popular songs, and I’m doing okay, but I have a few questions…
1)when do I use a capo? will it say? like, Is it required for some songs?
2)buzzing noises- is this normal for a begginer? do I just need to press the frets down harder?
3) I feel like my fingers are going to start bleeding. they hurt SO bad. It hurts to type. this normal right? how long should it take to build up calluses?
4) since Im teaching myself, what are some tips and tricks I’ll need? any handy websites? should I learn the basic chords?
I’m not trying to learn how to read sheet music, I already can from flute and piano. I want to know like everything a begginer should know- I really do know absuloutly nothing- is tab a good way to learn? what are some easy songs that I can start out with?
also- is there a website that shows the fingering for all the chords? that I can print off?
thank you SOOOOOOO much!
1) capos are usually only used if you only know a song in lets say c but you thats too low for you to sing to so instead of figuring out all the chords in the song in lets say D you could just put the capo on the 2nd fret
2)yes buzzing is normal for beginners (especially if ur using barr chords)
but if you find that after lots and lots of practice that it still buzzs its probably ur guitar
3)yea they will hurt for a while but just keep practicing everyday and ur calluses should build up in about 2 weeks or less, but if it bothers you that much i suggest you get a nylon string(classical) guitar cuz those are easier on ur fingers
4)hhmmm some tips…. When ur leaning barr chords try doing them on the 5th fret or higher(closer to the body)
and this website is a pretty good guitar resource
its got a guitar tuner and guitar chord chart that also shows you how the chords sound
hope this helps
if you need any more help feel free to email me
Please help me with guitar advise!?
Ok i really love guitar and ive been playing for just under 2 years, self taught but only recently in the last month or so ive decided to get theory lessons,
Now my teacher alex says that i need to practice with a metronome hes a great teacher and i’ve seem to have come on leaps and bounds but im concerned about the fact that well my musical love lies in metal, rock and neoclassical metal now for instance one of the main bands i listen to atm “avenged sevenfold” has some very complicated solos in them for instance the beast and the harlot. Atm i can only play two songs perfectly by them seize the day and the fight, but the solos are easy. I wont even bother saying i want to play satriani or malmsteem simply because i don’t know if this is even possible, ok well i will say, i really want to play malmteen and satriani songs as i just get a buzz by listening to their music more so than the a7x music, but i dunno where to begin on my speed.
my youtube is http://uk.youtube.com/user/graymic
this being my best solo:
but i am really thinking of quitting because i just am not sure if i will ever be good to play what i set out at the begining to in the end play.
Any advice would help.
I think you’re missing the point of your teacher’s comment.
I watched some of your videos, and it is all well and good that you can play along with the music, but how is your rhythm when you play just the solo (with no music in the background)?
I suspect this is where the problem lies. It is not a matter of how fast you play the song, but rather, are you keeping the beat? Can I tap my foot along to it?
What your instructor is saying when he suggests the use of a metronome is “Hey kid, your rhythm sucks.”
Take his advice to heart and find out for yourself what a challenge it can be. No need to quit… Just improve your rhythm.
This from another music instructor (who, btw, hated a metronome, but came to understand its value),
how easy/possible is it to learn guitar through youtube?
i really want to learn how to play but as im 18 and know nothing i’d feel slightly embarassed getting professional lessons and also they’re very expensive!
has anyone had any experience with learning to play guitar through youtube and how easy this is?
i’ve heard of a few friends of friends who say they have done this but im not sure ?
Well when I first started learning guitar I taught myself. I didn’t use youtube but I used guitar websites. There are plenty that will teach you all the basic chords and techniques and stuff, and most websites will have video lessons on them as well, to help you, so i recommend you google some guitar learning websites. (i used fret-jam.com or something like that. Justinguitar.com is also good)
Youtube is great if you want to learn a song you like, after you’ve gotten down some of the basics of guitar. But for actually learning, I suggest use an actual website devoted to learning guitar. Also buying some guitar excersise books may help, and some might teach you how to read music (if you don’t know already)
But to be honest, teaching myself only got me so far. I could play yeah, but I didn’t really feel 100% confident until I started having actual lessons.
And I can tell you now that actually having someone there in real life that’s more experience at guitar is SO much more effective than learning from the internet. They help you and you pick it up that much faster.
You shouldn’t be embarrassed though! There was this one time I came to my guitar lesson, I saw the guy before me was learning guitar also, and he was at least 30! Also it doesn’t matter that you know nothing, the teacher is there to teach you after all. But I do understand the issue of them being expensive.
Anyway, that’s just my experience, you may be completely different.
Best of luck
Ive had no guitar lessons what so ever!?
Hey! im a 13 year old girl and im interested in playing guitar.
ive had no lessons at all.. i used to play piano and violin but wasnt very good.
the only guitar we have in the house is my brothers old electricc guitar.

Go to a music store and ask for a basic song book for beginners guitars. But your music teacher should assign you one. There are some people who have the motivation to teach themselves through books. Practice Practice practice.

Please,please tell me,how to play GUITAR HERO 3 With keyboard?
Please,please tell me,how to play GUITAR HERO 3 With keyboard.I have No Guitar and i can not play guitar hero.
1 Start the game and go to Options>Controller>Configure Keyboard
2 Configure the keyboard as follows:
Green Fret / Confirm -> N
Red Fret / Cancel -> M
Yellow Fret -> Comma
Blue Fret -> Period
Orange Fret -> /
Star Power -> Space
Whammy -> L Alt
Strum Up / Menu Up -> A
Strum Down / Menu Down -> Z
Confirm the changes and start the game
3 Now, while playing, hold the keyboard like you’re holding a real guitar, the back of your guitar should be against your belly, your left-hand fingers (Ring Finger, Middle Finger, Index Finger) should be placed on the (N key, M key and Comma key) respectively, the baby finger should be free to press the space bar when needed.
Use your Right-Hand Index finger to press the A button, use only the A, no need to use the Z because it wount work when trying to play 2 strings at a time, it has something to do with the inside wiring of the keyboard, but I’ll skip the technical reason, just use the A, it works perfectly.
Finally, use your Right-Hand Ring finger to press the Left-Alt key for Whammy.
When playing in Medium or Hard modes, you may need to shift your Left-Hand finger placement on the keys.
Can you play Guitar Hero Aerosmith on a Guitar Hero 3 guitar?
I really want Guitar Hero Aerosmith but I dont know if I can afford it if I have to get the guitar with it. And I really just want the game anyway, I already have 2 guitars but they are for Guitar Hero 3. Will Guitar Hero 3 guitars work on Guitar Hero Aerosmith?
Yes they will but the guitars have to be for the same system example wii guitars wont work on a playstation so as long as you buy the game for the same system your good
is it possible to play guitar hero 3 on expert mode if you dont use your pinky finger?
because i have always played with just my other 3 fingers and ive tried with the pinky but i cant get used to it.
Can you use a fender stratocaster guitar for xbox 360 to play guitar hero 3?
and the button aren’t color matching and my 360 there is nothing wrong with it and this is the third used guitar and all are doing the same thing but when playing by controller it works fine
I believe the stratocaster is for rockband
For some reason, GH guitars work with rockband but rockband guitars won’t work for GH.

can you play guitar hero 3 for the wii without the guitar and instead use the wii remote ?
since you can only buy the guitar separate in february can you use the wii remote in lei of the guitar. oh and another question off topic –when is the office coming back on nbc (sorry i dont want to waste anymore points on another question)
Yes, you can, but it is much more difficult.
If you want to play this game with a friend and don’t have a spare guitar, you can play the game using the Wiimote. Here’s how the buttons correspond:
B Button – Green
Right (D-Pad) – Red
A Button – Yellow
1 Button – Blue
2 Button – Orange
There is no strum. You have to hit (and hold, when necessary) each button at the time the note is to be played.
Holding it is rather akward. It seems to easiest to hold it face up, with the thumb on the B button, index finger on the directional Right button (which would be the one facing away from you, on the same side as your fingers), the middle finger on the A button, and the pinkie on the 1 & 2 buttons. This however, doesn’t correspond to the same finger-button combination as used with the guitar controller.
Alternatively, you could use Thumb-B, middle-Right, ring-A, pinkie-1/2, which is closer to the the guitar, but it makes the blue/orange buttons more difficult. IF you play on Easy mode you don’t these those anway.
Using the thumb on the B button seems to cause it gettign pushed accidentally a lot, so you need to steady the remote with the opposite hand, which is also kind of akward. It you have some other attachment, like the sports bat or racket, that might be helpful for holdling it with the strum hand.
This should work for either the right-handed player in the left hand or a lefty in the right hand, with the only exception being the the index finger would have to reach all the way across the directional button to reach the Right arrow for a lefty
Hope this helps. It certainly is much easier and more fun with the guitar, but since you can’t buy an individual controller yet, it’s worth a try to play in co-op mode.

Electric guitar, help desperately needed?
Ok, so i have both electric and acoustic guitar, on my acoustic im good on a scale of 10 i’d say 7 but on the electric i know nothing.. Barely 1 outta 10.
So basically i need a website or something that gives free blues/funk tutorials for noobs and beginners.. It just seems so hard changing frets that fast :s oh and can anyone explain what riffs and licks are? And yep imma noob -_-
PS: i dont wanna learn rock or metal.. Etc. I just wanna learn funk and blues
I don’t have a clue what your problem is from that description. The acoustic guitar and the electric guitar play the same. If you can play an acoustic, you can pickup an electric and play it.
Licks and riffs are just a series of notes.
what is a scale and where can i learn em?
acoustic guitar. I heard that beginners should learn them first off.
Fuck scales, you’ll probably get bored unless you’re very disciplined. Develop your hearing, that gets you way further. Practise easy songs, and once you get the hang of more and more of them try to find parts of, or entire songs, by ear.
Question about music school?
I began playing electric guitar when I was 15 for about 1 and a half years and prior to that I spent 4 months playing classical guitar. Now I’m 17 and for about a year I stopped taking lessons but during that time I play my acoustic guitar every week, not intensively as when I played electric guitar but casually for example practicing some scales and some simple songs.
Recently I had the urge to start playing the electric guitar again and when I played my electric guitar again, the strings felt lighter and I felt my strumming was more improved. Now I have a desire of wanting to major in music in university, which seems like an impossible thing now. So far I don’t have much knowledge on music theory except for knowing all the notes on my fret, knowing a couple of scales, improvise by the pentatonic scale, an adequate knowledge of chords, a beginner‘s level in reading musical notation.
As for practical skills I’m able to strum really well, I can do alternate picking, I can tell the difference between up/down strokes, I can recognize what approaches to take when playing a song and a good sense of rhythm. To give a sense of my level of my playing, I can play Master of Puppets.
The reason I lacked so much on theory was because my last teacher wanted to put on emphasis on developing my practical skills. Before, my sense of music was horrible. I couldn’t tell one note from the other but now I’m the total opposite, in terms of music ability, from what I was.
After reading an article on Tom Morello’s 8 hour practice a day approach and the 10000 hour rule (practicing 10 hours of something to become prolifent in it). I came up with the crazy idea that I wanted to practice 8 hours a day when I have some time after I graduate high school, which will be next year. I’m willing to practice for 8 hours a day for 6 months and in university I want practice a similar set of hours as well. Currently I have about 2 hours to spare each day and on weekends about 4 hours since I have school.
I’ve done the math and I can come up with approximately 4,200 hours if I take this approach. But somehow I’m not sure if this approach is sound. So my question is what musical ability do I need to have in order to pursue music in university? What should I know in order to become proficient enough to have a chance in majoring in music in uni.
I had started in the same boat as you and just now graduated w/ a theory degree from UNT (a great music school). I will tell you that you do not need much theory or piano or singing abilities, but you will learn them all once you are accepted. But first thing is first, your audition. If guitar is your instrument, you must choose between jazz or classical guitar. Jazz requires alot of sight-reading skills and proficiency at comping. That doesn’t seem like you. Try classical guitar. You will want to have at least 2 songs, go for 3 down pat. Sight reading is not necessary, but you will work on it. I did Frenando Sor and a Carcassi etude. Getting some Bach in is always really good
Once accepted, you will take a theory and piano placement exam, but that’s just to find where they should start teaching you from. So just practice the pieces, and take it easy. Don’t kill yourself practicing. You could hurt yourself. There’s plenty of time for that when you’re in school for guitar. And then it becomes your job.
Best of luck to you.
Questions about bass guitar?
first off i am thinking about starting to play bass guitar, i’ve played piano for a while, not great at reading bass but getting better.
-On a scale of 1-10 about how hard is the bass to play
-Acoustic over electric bass
-4-6 strings, whats you recommendation for a beginner
-relatively good bass not to expensive
answer as many of these as you want, thanks!
I’ve always said that the bass is easy to play but difficult to play well. Anyone can play eigth notes on the root chords, but to play like Geddy Lee, Tony Levin, Marcus MIller or Jaco- well, that’s a completely different level of playing. These guys were playing stuff in the 70′s that I still can’t do! Also it depends on what instruments you can already play. I played trumpet before bass and it was much more difficult. You need so many more parts of your body to play trumpet. To answer your question- 3 if your just want to play the roots, 10 if you want to actually play well.
Acoustic basses I found more difficult to play. I’m not a big guy and the large bodies that acoustics have made playing them uncomfortable.
I’ve never owned any bass with more than 4 strings. I use a drop D tuning, so I get a little bit of an extended range. Just my preference- it’s suits my style of playing.
I would recommend Ibanez Soundgear basses (I’ve had 3) or standard Fender Jazz basses (also 3). They are quality basses for under $500.
Hope this helps.

Guitar: When should I learn guitar chords and how to change fingering on the fretboard to make songs?
Right now I’m practicing picking exercises and getting my fingers onto the right strings. When should I start learning chords/riffs and how to change my fingers on the fretboard to make songs? (I’ve been practicing one out of every two days for a month now with ~35 minutes playing time per day. That does not include anything that is not playing the guitar.) I think a good answer would start with… “After you have learned…”
Start learning chords right away. I usually teach my students all the basic chords starting on their first lesson, then I move on to power chords, full bar chords and then scales, in that order. After that, they’re usually ready to start learning most songs. To reiterate: Chords, then riffs, then songs.
How does a person with small hands play some guitar chords?
I have extremely small hands (i.e., I can barely play an octave on the piano) and very recently I started trying to learn how to play the guitar. The problem is, though, that I find I can’t play some of the chords that require me to hold all of the strings down with my first finger. How do I overcome this? In proportion to the rest of my hand, I have long fingers. Should I use this to my advantage? Is so, how? Thanks!
Some guitars are more user-friendly than others, especially when it comes to players with small hands. Each brand tends to have its own feel and some are known for having really chunky necks that make it difficult for small-handed people to form chords or move smoothly between them. Epiphone and Gibson guitars (both electric and acoustic), for example, have really fat necks that make them very challenging for many female guitarists to play. Ibanez guitars (both acoustic and electric), in contrast, have really thin necks and low action (strings close to the fretboard), which make them much more comfortable for players with small hands.
You probably already have a guitar, in which case it will become easier to form chords the more you practice. There are lots of great guitarists who learned on guitars that don’t quite fit them. But the next time you’re in a music store, it’s worth test driving a bunch of different guitars so you can feel the difference between the brands and guitar models. Just as body sizes range from gigantic to tiny, so do necks. And most guitarists are brand loyal because they’ve found the manufacturer whose guitars are a perfect fit for their body and hand sizes. And electric guitars tend to have much thinner necks than acoustics, so if you’re inclined toward electric music, you’ll likely have an easier time playing an electric guitar.
It sound like you’re trying to play barre chords, and there are ways around that. I’ve been playing for more than 20 years and still can’t manage barre chords because my hands are small and my fingers are short. If you invest in a good chord book, you’ll learn alternatives to barre chords. That involves more memorization of individual chords (since you won’t be working your way up and down the guitar neck with a fixed hand position), but it’s worth the effort if you really want to play.

How do you string a guitar with a Floyd Rose floating Bridge?
I understand the basics, such as cutting off the ball end and how the nut locks work and such. But when I tune it, the bridge pulls up too far. even before I get the guitar in tune. How do I prevent the strings from pulling the bridge out of the balanced flat position while I am tuning?
Thanks for the info. I didnt think about checking what size strings they had on it when I bought it. I’ve been playing a standard strat-style Aria for 5 years, so this Floyd Rose thing is a bit new to me. haha
This is a very common issue with The Floyd Rose. They are in short a serious pain in the butt to set up correctly
The thing here is to balance the pull of the strings with the tension of the tremolo springs. Then there’s a certain procedure to get the thing tuned correctly.
Once you have the guitar and tremolo set up correctly, make sure you always use the same string gauge and tuning on that guitar. If you change gauge or tune down, you will need to redo the whole thing…
Rather than spending half an hour explaining how it’s done, go to youtube.com and type in “how to tune a Floyd Rose tremolo” or such similar search terms. There are a number of videos describing this in step-by-step fashion.
How hard is it to re-string a guitar?
When my father-in-law passed away a couple of years ago, my wife inherited one of his acoustic guitars. I’ve been meaning for some time to learn how to play it, but I know I first need to have the positions of all the strings reversed (I’m left-handed).
Is this something a novice with very little musical experience can do, or do I need to take it to a music shop and have a professional do it? Are there any special tools I need? It’s a very nice guitar that dates back to the 1950′s, so I don’t want to take a chance and accidentally wreck it…
Also, how reasonable an expectation would it be to teach myself the basics through books or instructional DVD’s? Any recommendations, or should I try to find myself a music teacher?
You might get by with just reversing the strings, but to make it play properly, the bridge and nut should also be reversed. Lower pitched strings are larger in diameter. The bridge is made to keep the strings at the correct height. If you just reverse the strings, then the larger strings will be on the side of the bridge meant for thinner strings. It might work ok, but your best bet would be to take it in and have someone do it right.

How to string an electric guitar?
Hey everyone, this is my first time stringing an electric guitar. I was wondering what the basics of stringing are. Since I have a Fender Stratocaster, I know that I pull the string through the hole in the bottom of the body but what do i do afterwards after pulling the string through the tuning poles? And what exactly is “slack”? Good answers will be appreciated, thanks.
If your tuners are the vintage style, these instructions do not apply. These are for the modern type tuners (hole goes through the post of the tuning peg).
After I run the string up through the saddle, I give it a good pull to make sure the ball came all the way up (they can get hung up part way up). Then I run across the saddle and with my finger give the string a very slight bend (to curve as it leaves the saddle). I pull the string up to the tuning peg. I wan all the holes in the pegs straight up and down (12:00 6:00). I run the string through the hole and give it a wrap part way around the post. I do not turn the winder, I just take the string around the post some. That helps hold the string while I stretch it. I put a couple fingers under the string down the neck somewhere. Usually about the 12th and lift the string up away from the neck. I am stretching the string. I do that a few times. Then I unwrap the string and take the tag end up to the top of the headstock. I want to leave some slack in the line so I can wind the string up. Slack is the opposite of tight. I do not pull the string tight. I want some play (looseness) in it. How much is a matter of feel. I want enough so I can get 2 wraps around the tuning peg. Thick strings need more slack than thin strings. With the treble strings, If I can put my fingers under the nut without it being tight, that is about right. Now I take the tag end down towards the center of the headstock. I run the tag end under the main line of the string. Then I take the tag end up over the main line and take the tag end back up towards the top. As I wind, I place a finger on the main line of the string so the wraps go downward. Right about now you are saying you need 3 hands. But with practice it gets easy. Hold the tag end up with a finger or two and with another finger from the same hand, press the main line of the string down. Wind the tuning peg with your other hand.
I have hear all sorts of advice about what sequence to take strings off or put them on. Some folks say not to take all the strings off at the same time. That is more personal preference than anything. You can take all the strings off at the same time. In fact you need to in order to clean the fretboard or work on the frets. I usually take all my strings off so I can clean the fretboard. I put the middle strings on first just because I think that sort of balances the tension on the neck (pull of the strings). I would not suggest starting with the low E string and putting the strings on in order across the neck That will put more tension on the bass side and no tension on the treble side. I do not know for sure if that could damage the neck (I doubt it), but I am not comfortable with having tension only on one side. So I start in the middle and work out on both sides.
Here is a video, He does it similar to the way I do

How to grasp the basics of guitar strumming.?
I have been learning guitar for about 6 – 9 months now, I have a good knowledge of various basic chords and can play a few easy songs. However, when first starting out, instead of learning to play with a pick, i simply used to run my thumb up and down the strings. When playing in a quiet room you are still able to hear the chord difference and distinguish between an up and down stroke etc.
My problem is not with strumming patterns at all, it’s with the actual strumming of the strings and the quality of sound that is created. As i have been playing with no pick for some time, I can tell that it is not an issue with my left hand ( the chord is being played correctly and all of the notes ring out when the strings are played individually). My problem seems to come with the actual technique of strumming all of the strings at a time. I have looked at various articles instructing you to have a relexed grip and a free flowing hand and wrist. I have also looked at various pick holding instructions and believe that i am following them correctly. I have a tuner and my guitar is correctly tuned. I just don’t seem to be able to pu my finger on the problem and it is really frustrating whilst trying to learn. On many occasions i accidentally miss out the 1st few strings on a strum ( E,A,D ) and this results in a ringing noise from the last few strings rather than a recognisable chord. However, when i try to focus on playing all of the strings in a stroke, the problem is still there. PLEASE HELP ….. ?

any really easy guitar songs for beginners?
so i’m trying to teach myself how to play the guitar and i need some really easy songs to practice with.
please suggest some songs that only require strumming like one string at a time like ode to joy or star spangled banner
Try “Come As You Are” by Nirvana. I think it’d be good to learn as a beginner. It’s got some “one string at a time” kinda stuff on it if that’s what you’re shooting for.
Help with electric guitar for beginners?
So I’m a 14 year old guy and I want to learn how to play the electric guitar. One of my classes in grade 8 last year was acoustic guitar and I did It for a couple months. I got a c+, with 1% away from a B. The teacher said that I an capable. I usually got 70 to 80 % in most guitar assignments. I am left handed guitar player. I could play songs like rockin robin and surf rock and au Clair de lune ( forgot how to spell it ). I haven’t played since February to June though, but I remember chords D C E G and a couple other ones. I remember notes on the first string, second string and third. But that was all on acoustic guitar though. I want to know:
1. how to play electric guitar ( tips, etc )
2. A good but not very expensive beginner electric guitar and amp, and any other MANDATORY equipment that will help me.
3. Beginner songs to start playing
4. Good websites that give useful tips etc
5. Parts of the guitar ( what they are, what they do, etc
6. How to read notes, chords, tabs, etc
I probably won’t get and electric guitar and amp until Christmas, but thank you and please answer all questions.
You are left handed and want to play surf. I suppose you have heard of Dick Dale.
1. How to play? What you learned on the acoustic will all carry over to the electric. But that is just the start. A lot more to learn. Here is a link to a series of 12 video lessons. This guy covers the basics of playing pretty well and the lessons are targeted at absolute beginners. So the lessons should be a good review and may cover some new material for you. You can ignore where the guy talks about sending you the lessons. He used to email them out. Now they are all there at Youtube.
2. Beginner guitar and amp? If you are interested in surf, you need a Strat and a tremolo bridge. You use the whammy bar in a lot of songs. A Squier Strat is a decent guitar for the beginner. Squier has several models and the quality varies with the cost. The Bullet at $120 is the low end. The Classic Vibe at $350 is the high end. In between are the Affinity, Standard, Deluxe and Vintage Modified. I would also suggest you consider buying a used guitar. Used gear sells for about half the new price. That means you can buy a higher quality guitar by getting a used one, no matter how much you spend. The Fender Standard Stratocaster (MIM Strat) used sells for $200 to $300 on ebay. Any thing in the $200 to $250 range is a good buy. A MIM Strat at that price will be hard to beat. For an amp, skip the small practice amps. They really do not have enough power to handle gain and distortion. Also the small 6 or 8 inch speaker will make you sound thin and tinny. There is more to the power rating of an amp than just how loud it gets. It takes more power to handle gain and distortion without running out of head room than most newer players realist. A 1×12 combo amp would be a good amp for a beginner. 1×12 means it has one 12 inch speaker. Combo means the amplifier and speaker are in the same cabinet. The Fender Mustang II is a good choice for the beginner. It is a 40 watt 1×12 digital modeling combo amp. That means it can simulate the sound of many different classic amps. It has several built in effects which saves you the money of buying pedals for those effects. The 12 inch speaker will give you a rich full sound.
Mandatory equipment? A cable to connect your amp to the guitar. After that everything else is optional. Here is some gear I suggest you do get: Picks (personal choice as to style), a strap to hold your guitar so you can play standing up, an electronic tuner if you do not already have one (they make life so much easier). Other stuff? Maybe a gig bag to carry your guitar if you take it to lessons or anywhere. Don’t bother with a hard case right now. You don’t really need that much protection until you are gigging. An extra set of strings to match what ever you have on the guitar (9-42s are good for beginners because they are easy to play and easy on your fingers).
3. Beginner songs. I don’t subscribe to the idea you should start with a beginner song. I think it is a better approach to select a few songs you actually want to play. Then work on those. I do think it is a good idea to work in some songs into your practice schedule even at the start. Playing songs is what we learn for. So work some into your practice schedule along with the various exercises you have to learn. Nice way to learn how those exercises apply to real playing (songs).
4. Good websites? I like WholeNote.com for theory lessons. They have some great lessons on modes and scales when you get there. Youtube is handy. Do a search there using the song title and the work lesson or the works how to play. There are a lot of good instructional videos on Youtube. Also at Youtube, do a search to find some of Joe Satriani’s lessons. Even if you do not play his style, he is an excellent teacher and you can learn a lot from him. Learn how to play well, then apply it to the type of music you want to play. Don’t go in with the idea that each genre has separate lessons. Study any good lesson, The more you learn the more you can work into your playing, no matter what genre you play. Also if you do not know how to read tabs, you need to learn. Tabs is a shorthand method of writing guitar music and is widely used these days. It is quick and easy to learn.
Also download this chord chart to your computer where it is handy when you need to look up how to play a chord.
5. Parts of the guitar. I will pass on explaining this. There are a lot of sites with diagrams explaining the parts of a guitar.
6. Tabs, chords, etc? Already covered that in the web site question.
What are some great guitar songs to learn how to play for a beginner?
Preferably within the rock genre
Something like Smells like teen spirit from Nirvana, Nothing else matters from Metallica (first song I learnt), also once you used to playing a bit, you could learn Bohemian rhapsody’s solo from Queen. If you are just starting out I would recommend just learning basic chords etc which can easily been found on the internet.
what are some easy guitar songs for beginners?
im teaching to 14 yr olds how to play the guitar but Im stuck o what to teach them. I know I should ask them what they would like to play but I forgot to last lesson (which was the first time i taught them) so i’ve got another lesson with them tomorrow but have no idea of what songs to bring. I need an EXTREMLY easy song that doesnt have many or any bar chords/power chords or chords in general lol becuase they struggle to put mpre than one finger at the same time on the fret board. Songs like espionage by green day. I taught that to them last lesson lol. thanks

weird latency problem when recording guitar with mixer?
im trying to record over a song with Audacity. i have my electric guitar hooked up to an effects pedal to a mixer to my computer.
But theres this weird delay…when i play a not on my guitar there is about a half second delay before it goes to the computer. It obviously messes up how the recording sounds A LOT.
i have been trying to research it and as far as i can tell the only solution i have is moving up to something more expensive from the soundboard…maybe up to “digital” recording. whatever that is.
I am using a Behringer mixer…the cheapest one they have with only a single channel as I nly use it to just record my guitar. I have read that Behringer in general is crap…is this the culprit? the fact that the brand is behringer?
What you are doing IS digital recording. You’re recording. It’s digital. There it is.
The latency could come from a lot of things, but most likely I think it’s that your computer may be slow. With Audacity, you can compensate for any latency by going to Edit>>Preferences. Under the Audio I/O section, there is a box entitled “Latency”. In the text area that says Latency Correction, enter 500 (since you said it was about half a second.) Try recording again and adjust that number until it’s just right. Keep in mind, it may have to be more like -500. I haven’t used Audacity in a while and I’ve forgotten which way the thing goes. You may also want to make sure that “Software Playthrough” (also in the Audio I/O section) is unchecked.
If none of this works you can always just move the object within the track backwards about half a second. It’ll be annoying, but it’ll fix the sound of the recording.
What kind of guitar should I get?
Ok, so I would like to get a guitar, and learn how to play it. So, I like metal, and I was kinda looking for a guitar that sounds decent when not plugged into anything, but has the ability for it to be plugged into a computer via USB cable. So really, what guitar has these 2 things, and isn’t relitevely too expensive? And I would also love any general info on guitars too, and where I can learn to play and read music for the guitar.
( and the guitar I described would be an electric guitar correct?)
Anyways thank you all a whole bunch for your time and help!
I think there are a couple of guitars that are usb ready,i think behringer do one and then fret light do ones that are primarily teaching tools with lights in the fingerboard that show you where to put your fingers,the alternative would be to get a regular electric (ibanez,esp/ltd,schecter are good for metal) and something like the line 6 tone port which you plug into your computer
How exactly do I go about recording music?
I play guitar (electric, and acoustic(non electric, so that’d need to be miked)) , harmonica, and penny whistle. I want to write music, and to do it, I want to record guitar, harmonica, penny whistle, and vocals, and also some way to have drums in there as well. Could someone possibly walk me through exactly how I would go about doing this, everything I would buy to do the recording, and I mean everything, each cable and mic, and preferrably, I’m looking for something external, not on the computer. It would be really great if someone could just give me the list of things I would need to do that. Thanks!
xgoz, thanks a lot for your answer, it looks really informative, but if possible, could you maybe shave off some of the stuff that I wouldn’t necessarily need (i should have specified im only 16 and I don’t need fancy stuff like a channel board or anything, I’m just recording for myself, not to produce or sell) I’d really appreciate it
What you need.
External Digital recorder (Roland, Fostex, Mackie)
8 to 16 channel mixer board
Microphones ( Shure 57′s ot 58′s ) Good quality microphones
1/4 instrument cables
Microphones wind screen/wind poppers
Monitor cables to mixing board
100 watt amp (minimum)
amp cables to mixing board
calling all guitarists/musicians! how to record a song on my computer?
how can i make a professional sounding song with my computer? all i have is a webcam with a built in microphone lol so would i need a special mic that’s meant for recording? also, what do i need to record my guitar to the computer, because picking up guitar sounds from a computer microphone just doesn’t cut it and makes both me and my playing sound horrible. where can i get this equipment? ALSO, for you guitarists, what’s a good electric guitar i could buy that sounds good distorted? please answer and thanks in advance.
Yeah, you need a specific type of mic. Also, when recording to the computer, it’s good to not sing as loud as you would need to, as most mics pick up voice more-so than the guitar, and usually make it a lot louder.
Adobe has some very good sound software for creating your own distortions and echoes after having recorded.
Fender and Gibson have some very high grade guitars, that are very good with distortions, but it’s also important to have a good amp, and a pedal, as well. You don’t need anything fancy, but a nice distortion/wah peddle couldn’t hurt.
Fender also sells some pedals that have multiple different distortion options, a wah/volume pedal, multiple guitar inputs, and a connection wire to your computer so that you could actually record straight from your guitar to your computer, through the pedal.
Not sure if i answered everything for you, but i hope this helps. =]
Help with spoiled rotten sister? (very serious question)?
I can’t believe I have to resort to Yahoo Answers for this, but I will do anything to solve my family situation.
I am 18 and live with my mom (who is a single parent), my older brother (21), and my younger sister (14). Because my parents separated years ago, my sister has pretty much grew up with my mom as the only parent. And well, my mom spoiled her, pretty badly. Along with hanging out with bad friends, she has, for the most part, turned into a rotten, disrespectful child. On to examples.
My sister will talk back to my mom for anything and everything. Whether it is for trivial things such as food or just to blame her for things she doesn’t deserve. My mom, does nothing about it. Never hit her once. She’ll tell her to go to her room but all she does is throw tantrums and become destructive. However, it’s not just this. She is really selfish. She will hog the computer just because she wants to play some stupid game for hours, without letting even my older (very respectful and pacifist) brother on the computer to do college homework. She’s self absorbed, and likes to take advantage of my mom for money. Often, my Mom will give her money just because she is her daughter, while disregarding all of the disrespect she gets back in return. And if my Mom ever asks to borrow money from her for the family, my sister will do nothing to return the money she was given. She’s a materialist, likes to blow money on clothing/makeup/etc. and doesn’t give a crap about what anyone else gets. Another reason why my mom doesn’t deserve this is because her mother (my grandmother) doesn’t have much time to live because of spreading breast cancer.
Now I’ll talk about how she treats me, specifically, while trying to restrain my hateful feelings. I am an amateur musician/composer looking at getting an education at the local community college (where I will be staying with my parent), then transferring to a university. Music means a lot to me, more than anything really, and so does practicing my instruments. My two instruments at the moment I am playing are my electric guitar and my keyboard. I like to play them both equally frequently so that I don’t lose skill. The thing is, my sister absolutely LOATHES me playing my guitar and keyboard (note she listens to Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, etc.). Most of the time, I can’t even play it because she says it “annoys” her. Well pretty much, any musical instrument I have ever played in the house annoys her. An example, when I used to practice my trombone at home when I went to school. Pretty much, this is the scenario I am faced with:
I start even slightly playing a melody on an instrument. She comes in, shouts at me to stop, I say no, and then she puts her hand on my instrument forcefully to prevent me from playing. It pisses me off more than anything. I swear I have almost long myself countless times to where I nearly hit her. I can’t play whenever she is home, which is all the time because she rarely goes to her friends, and also goes to online school. And I can’t play at my friends’ because their parents don’t allow it. I’ve pretty much no where to do individual practice, and it depresses me more than anything. I have told my mom countless times how important it is to me but she hardly does anything because she has no control over my sister. None of us do.
I don’t have a job so I can’t move out, nor do I think I am ready to live on my own. Being I’m going to college in the fall (again, community college), I would have to balance out a job, college, and hours of practice, which would be hardly doable. Another thing is I would feel like I am leaving the problem to my mother and brother, which would be not fair for them. I want to take care of this problem while I’m still in the household.
Ok, that’s about it. Long read, I know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
How much trouble would I get if I hit my sister? I don’t want my chances of getting jobs getting jeopardized nor do I want to be put in jail.
I would probably totally ignore her and maybe find a quiet park or something to practice? Do you have a portable amp? Get one! Lol or even if you find a place that is a little busy (park or something) you can get the head phones that can plug into an amp and only you can hear it… Who knows maybe you will meet people just like you and they have a place you guys can play…. She sounds like a stuck up biotch too btw lol.. You could dish out a taste of her own medicine and when ever she does something consistently that she likes go yell at her lol i used to doo that to my brother, worked sometimes.

Drop c tuning
Drop d tuning
Pentatonic scale with blue notes
Can make up a solo
Should i take music, ive been playing a year and a hlaf, and i can do all that^ to perfection, and ive got 2years before i have to perform my final gig. I only have lessons every other week, but when i take BTEC, ill get them twice a week.
I cant take GCSE, there is no such thing any more
Is it a secondary school BTEC? If is is then NOOOOOOOO do not do anyyyyy BTEC’s. Colleges/Universities don’t like BTEC’s. GCSE’s look wayyyy better.
What level of a guitar player should I be considered?
I’ve been playing for a year, have not taken 1 guitar lesson.
I know basic+other chords (Major, minor, sus4, maj7, m7 and some others?)
I know quite a few scales (Major pentatonic, minor pentatonic, major, harmonic minor, dorian, phyrigian, and lydian modes, minor blues)
I can play easy songs like Californication and the chords to Hotel California almsot perfectly, less than 3 mistakes. I can play the Sweet Child o Mine intro almost perfectly.

I always alternate pick.
I can play these songs (full):
Stairway to Heaven
All the Small Things
Peace of Mind
How far we’ve come
Smells like teen spirit

And i am working on canon rock/sweet child of mine too i can play all of sweet child of mine til the solo starts (my goal is to play the full song)
so anyways, yes for no lessons that is good.
Describe me using this list…?
I sat down and thought of some interesting things about myself…
1. I blend to meet the desires of others in social situations. I fear that no one knows me the same way.
2. I, too often, ignore those who love me and seek love in those who just don’t care.
3. Sometimes I have conversations with myself in the mirror because I worry my facial expressions are quite right.
4. In my heart I know that there is some type of Divine power behind this crazy crazy world.
5. I overthink everything.
6. Mascara instantly makes me feel sexier.
7. Even though crew didn’t work out for me in high school I would love to pursue it in the future.

21. Even though I have learned many lessons from my sixteen years of mistakes I find it hard to change my ways and am often burned more than once.
22. When I watched some old home movies and heard my Gram’s voice for the first time since her death I realized that I didn’t even recognize it. I wish I weren’t as young when she passed.
23. I wish that I could shuffle cards the fancy way.
24. Everything about fish makes me cringe.
25. I hate calling adults on the phone.
26. I wish I could have an encounter with the paranormal. It really interests me yet frightens me at the same time.

33. It fascinates me that when you focus on body movements they suddenly become dysfunctional.
34. My tounge is fairly long, I can touch my chin with it.
35. The sound of acoustic guitar makes me feel at peace with the world.
36. I have an awful habit of buying clothing in bulk and then wearing the same thing over and over again.
37. I have an obsession with prank calling people.
38. I aspire to the effortless and graceful strength of Atticus Finch in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
39. I wish that I were born in the 70’s. I feel like kids have gotten meaner since then.
40. I am always up for a good back massage.
Now using this list please predict some things about my life. I want to see how my experiences and thoughts in this list transfer into my present state. THANKS!
So in your future I see some complete random stranger on the internet reading your list and thinking hmm you sound cool. Maybe if we are ever in the same place at the same time perhaps we could hook up and discuss your habit of googling people at random or maybe we could search for it online together. Ps. Check out my question about hugs.
Help please.. Family Issues..?
I don’t know what to do anymore..
Nothing ever works..
Basically, I see my Dad barely 5minutes a day, And speak to him about 5Minutes a week on a good week.
It’s not like he Is never at home, he just chooses to almost ignore me.
He never has took an Intrest In what I want to do.
I am looking to start basketball training, after playing for 3 years, I asked If he could give me lift’s there and back.
He said no..
The fact my brother came out of the blue saying he wanted to start football, and then my Dad took him to training 4times a week, and one-two games a week really annoys me how we wont even do one lift for me.
He never ask’s me how my day has been,
What I do, or just anything.
I’ve played guitar for over 2years. I have one lesson a week, which Is £12 for half an hour, I pay for this all myself..
After two years of playing, he has not once asked how Is my guitar going, or listened to me play.
He just wont seem to do anything with me,
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
When you are having your 5 minutes with him, let him know how you feel. He may have no idea what you are thinking. When he said no to taking you to basketball training why didn’t you ask him WHY he couldn’t do it? He may have a good reason or at least you would know why he said no. Maybe, it’s just that you are distant to him, because you feel distance from him. Give him a chance and talk things over with him. You may find that he does care very much but if the two of you keep ignoring each other you’ll never have a father/son relationship. Give it a try and see what he says. Good luck.

I’m thinking about starting to learn bass guitar…any advice?
The last few days I’ve just suddenly been thinking about learning to play bass guitar. I’m 17 and play the violin. I just passed my grade for exam earlier this summer and I think I would like to begin learning another instrument too. I have desperately wanted to learn drums since I was 13 but there is nowhere in my house to put a drum kit so I have never been able to do that. However now I am thinking that as I can’t learn to play drums, I would like to learn bass guitar.
Is there any advice you can give me? How much do beginners bass guitars cost? I don’t know how to play guitar and was told if I learnt that first it would make learning bass easier, but is that not just the same thing as saying if you learn bass first it makes learning guitar easier?! I don’t have any desire to learn how to play guitar soo.
Is it better to learn how to play musical notes or to play tab first or both or what? Would it be a lot better for me to have lessons straight off or could I self-teach at first (although to be honest I think the structure of having lessons might help me start to get into it properly)?
Is it a particularly easy or difficult instrument to play or somewhere in between? How long do you think it would take me to be able to play easier bass parts of, say, pop-punk songs? Also, I have small hands and short fingers which sometimes hinder my ability to play violin; would the same be true for playing bass as it’s another string instrument? Will being able to play violin have any kind of benefit if I start to learn bass? I’m not naturally a musical person so I know it will be hard work to learn to play another instrument but I think I would like to do that anyways. However, having read all of that, is there another instrument that you would suggest for me instead?
I know there are A LOT of questions there so anyone who really helps me out, thank you so much in advance!
Grr, typo; it should say that I passed my grade FOUR violin exam earlier this summer.
You are actually an accomplished musician (by rock standards) so I’d suggest guitar but you should find bass easy enough to play reasonably well fairly quickly.
Buy a 30 inch scale bass if you really have small hands (standard sizes are 30, 32 and 34) but at least try out a 32 as the longer the scale the better the bass sound generally.

You will get very helpful answers (we were all beginners once) and probably a decent deal on a well set up bass.
Beginner guitar player?
ive had a guitar for two years, i used to take lessons and am no regreting dropping them, id like to increase my guitar skills so i can play and feel comfortable playing, just recently formed a band with some bodys and would like to play rhythm while singing, so how can i increase my guitar skills and what are some easy songs to learn to play for beginners?
The key to increasing your skills as a guitarist is FOUNDATION. You want to build good technique from the ground up starting from the simplest, seemingly mundane things. For instance you should hold the neck with your thumb behind the neck in position with your middle finger on your left hand. If you play with a plectrum you want to make sure you’re getting pure sound on ever stroke, as you get more advanced you can train your right or left hand (depending on your handedness) to play finger style which will open a lot more doors. Slow things down initially, if you can learn to play it PERFECTLY slow you can increase your speed. Buy a metronome…let me repeat that…buy a metronome. The best guitar players, or more to the point the most desirable guitarists to play with have a great sense of rhythm. Rhythm is more important than the notes, if you miss one or two notes during a performance chances are no one will notice, but if you’re not in time then people will notice, trust me.
As far as songs to learn go I’ll say this. Obviously you’re not going to get very far if you’re a beginner and the first song you try to learn is Sultans of Swing or something of the like. Pick songs that are playable but still challenging and more importantly that you’ll learn from. That’s why I suggest a regiment of exercises like playing scales or designated chord progressions to help you theorize and build your technique on the guitar.
Stay away from tab!!!! Tab has ruined many a guitar player. It accomplishes one thing, you know that song how that person has interpreted it, that’s all. Train yourself to learn songs by ear or by standard notation from reputable books. By learning songs this way you’ll build more and more skill every time you learn a song. If you learn by ear you’ll train your ear to improvise and pick up on chord changes when jamming, if you learn by notation you’ll increase your theoretical abilities (I wish I had done more notation, I can read now but when it comes to rhythms I’m still lacking)
Lastly, actively listen to other guitarists. Try to think about what they’re doing to get those sounds. Copy their technique then work on making it your own.
guitar for beginner..?
hi everyone, so i am 17 years old and i decided i am going to start taking guitar lessons, i start in a few weeks and i am very excited, but for those who play very well guitar, do you think i am to old to start? because i hear most guitarist start at a very young age but what do you think? is it easy?
i have both an acoustic and electric guitar, which do you think i am better to start with?
You’re never too old to learn an instrument! A few key things to remember when starting though; it will be hard work, and you won’t be playing anything amazing for awhile, so don’t give up too easily! You want to start with the acoustic guitar, because you have to press the strings harder and you will build up callouses faster in your hand. You will want those, because otherwise your fingers will be raw and achy from playing. Start by learning your strings, and then start learning chords. Before long you will be playing any song you like!
I am learning to play the guitar for my girlfriend, what are…?
What are some good soundning Romantic…ish songs that are kind of easy for a beginner to learn. She (my girlfriend) loves the guitar so i bought a $250 one and i am taking lessons but my instroctur tells me i am getting to far ahead of myself., (she’s full of crap) do you know any songs that i could learn to play sort of easily.
Your teacher knows what is best….maybe your rushing too far ahead by skipping important things in music theory, are you able to read music well….do you know the scales, when playing do you know what key your playing in…..these are all important things if you want to become a good musician, and your teacher knows this…..most young people are in a hurry to learn the songs, I know I deal with that all the time with my students….what I do is every once in a while I teach them a song fingerstyle like the Beatles song Yesterday, or Claptons Tears In Heaven, that seems to keep them satiflied for a while while their learning the correct way to play music….it can become very boring for some people while their laying down the important foundations of musicianship, and this seems to keep them happy, when they do work on a piece like Yesterday they see for themselves how much they still have to learn. By saying that your getting to far ahead of yourself I know exactly what she/he is talking about…all young people are in a big hurry to play the music and skip the foundations,
once in a while I do let a kid do what he wants and then he see’s for himself that he doesn’t know as much as he thouht that he did and we go back to where we let off !!!!!!!! Get this book to see if you know as much as you think you do, ” The Very Best Of Fingerstyle Guitar “, put out by Hal Leonard…this book has the two songs that I talked about, this book has the chords, lead, fingerstyle picking, and tab…..work on this to see if you really do know more then your teacher thinks, also this will keep you happy and you can still keep on with your lessons. If you want to hear this played the way that my students do, (first year students do) go on youtube and type in this : Peo Kindgren plays Yesterday…..he’s a fabulous guitarist who plays like I teach using the fingers….he’s a classical guitarist who plays everything from Bach to the Beatles, and the way he plays Yesterday is the way that it’s written in the book that I told you about….well good luck to you, bye !!!!!!!

P.s this is my brothers account, just so you know, not that it matters anyways.
