Happy new year mga PeX guitarists!
wag gumamit ng paputok baka di na tayo makpaggitara haha!
hello to all rakistas here! happy new year po sa inyo.
btw, i've been playing guitar since 1998. una ko natuto mag piano, chords lang ako, not into notes. hanggang sa nasira yung piano / keyboards ko, nag shift ako to guitar.
nakakatawa mga influences ko sa pag gitara, The Moffatts actually, hehe..pero kung hindi dahil sa kanila, hindi ako magkakaroon ng passion sa pag gitara and even kumapa ng chords. it helped a lot. minsan pumupunta kami sa mga studios para mag jammin sa iba pa naming mga friends. hehe...
masaya nga maki-jam sa ibang tao, lalo na pag mga banda ng friends mo, mas madami kang natututunan at the same time natututo rin tayo makipag-interact with other people who have dierent interests in music.
happy new year!
Thank you very much for the answer so it does not matter what chords you will use as long as it sounds good? Im not a note guy just like all of you but Ive noticed that some guitarist changes the chords/notes along with the tone of the vocals..is this necesarry or not?
about the solos, I dont know the scales but surely I will study it sometime in the future....for example in composing solos is it necesarry to follow the scale of just be creative and experiment with different sounds regardless of the scales?do the solos need to corespond with the chords?
at first you may still follow the scale shape that follows the chords. But of course, you might want to experiment a bit sometimes. Music, like all other forms of art, experimentation might end up as masterpieces.
there's this conflict between what sounds good and what sounds right.
it's up to the player
Cool, may thread palang ganito. Ngayon ko lang nakita, haha!
I've been playing for almost 4 years pero wala pang formal lessons. I just picked up my dad's guitar and he taught me some basic stuffs and then I had the song book with the chords as my teacher. Tapos ayon, napuntahan ko ang ultimate-guitar sa internet at natutunan ko doon kung paano magbasa ng tabs. In school, I TRY to read notes but I just can't. Nahihirapan talaga ako. Stick lang ako sa chords, tabs at kung kaya, by ear na rin.
Main influence ko Red Hot Chili Peppers. Idol ko si John Frusciante. Okay kasi style niya, iba-iba rin ang tugtog. Mostly RHCP songs tinutugtog ko pero may ibang songs rin naman kapag tutugtog banda namin. I'm part of this music club (not the orchestra type..bands talaga) kaya naka-experience na rin akong magka-banda at tumugtog sa live audience. Sobrang saya
Hello na rin sa mga fellow guitarists dito!
jsut tried mt attempt on Metallica's "Creeping Death"
ang sakit ng right hand ko! kaasar na mga downstrokes yan!
ako kaya ako di matuto tuto, hindi ako makapag aral ng mag isa. pag mag isa lang kasi ako, inaantok ako. badtrip.
kaya yan hehe.. tyaga lang...
makapaggitara nga uli sa linggo hehe
about the examples, when the vocal pitch is changed it is necessary to adjust the notes? like in the songhits when the pitch of the vocals if increased the chords also increases by a sterp or so.
but for example when composing and you have done a specific riff and a vocalist has high voice will you need to change the whole thing? even if the original riff sounds better? for example I am kurt cobain and I wrote smells like teen spirit which starts on F5-Bb, then the vocalist sounds like maurice gibbs, so will I change the whole keys?and it will definitely sound like crap but considering the rules of guitar playing, the guitar riff will sound dull
I have another question?
how do you use a capo? what fret do you need to place it?can you place it anywhere?

pero depende pa rin sa nagko-compose yan, this is just my side of things
don't take my advices as it is, you can ask other guitarists for their side of these things, like getting second opinions from other doctors. You'll learn a lot. Then take it from there on how you'll you execute your music

Does anybody know where I can find tabs for old Kundiman songs? I tried online but I can't find them anywhere. I'm not good at playing by ear.
yess just learned how to play howie day - collide.. on my guitar .... might post it on youtubee ....
Meron palang ganito. Hi there, just learned "Shoot to Kill" by Greyhoundz. Grabe ibang-iba ang tuning, drop-B (ewan ko kung ito talaga ang tawag sa tuning na ibababa sa B yung string 6 tapos itotono na parang pagtono ng pa-drop-D).
BTW sa TS, hingi lang ako ng permission na gumawa ng similar thread, yung para naman sa bassists. (Will not make thread until permission is granted.) Thanks
^^ hehe sige llang.. mods na ang bahala kung ime-merge o hinde eh hehe
nakalabas na ba yung bagong album ng Greyhoundz!?!
@ermonski, ive read something about using capo on the net but its not that comprehensive. All I understand is that its used to cheat, to make easier...how do you guys comment on this? and are there experts there who can share how capo is used? I just got interested in it but I still prefer to play without a capo but it sure looks cool to play a capo since our fingers cant do it all
here are some videos on capo
another question what is the difference of a telecaster from a strat? which is better considering the number of pick ups in the strat is greater than the tele, which sounds more cooler?if I had to purchase from the two which will I buy first?
