I decided on picking with the beat.. up on up beats and down on down beats. It's simple because it matches the pattern that my foot is patting (out of habit). So the repeating rhythym in this song is : D - u-d - U D-U-D - u d - U - d -U-D-U-D - u Where D= is the down beat and U= is the up beat And b...

Fire

What pattern should I use to pick the repeating bassline? It seems like picking at random throws off my rhythm and I was kinda hoping to use this song as an intro to singing along while playing.

Thanks

Re: Epiphone is giving away a guitar

Actually, I think that shape isn't triangle at all.  If you watch closely you can tell the top of the triangle has been lopped off which, I think, would make it a trapezoid. :-/

Re: Beginners Discussion #3 - Three Marlenas

Great Easy Lesson!!  It was a rewarding experience.  I get so frustrated with my guitar deficiencies, but this really cheered me up!  I don't really have anything to add to the conversation.  (hehe)  I just wanted to post a "Thank you" to David.   Thanks for the easy-to-understand lesson!   It's one...

Thanks for the quick reply & link!  

I should'a paid more attention to the notation when I studied that hammer-on lesson. <sigh>

Thanks again!

Re: Beginner Group - (Going to) Kansas City

Some of the riffs in the middle of this lesson have little "rainbow" marks over pairs of 8th notes... When I played flute in high school band this mark signaled a slur or meant don't interrupt the air with your tongue when making the note transition.   What does it mean to a guitar player?  How do...

Re: Beginner Group - Roll Over Beethoven

Musenfreund, thanks for the explanation.  I read it a few times, and I think it may be starting to sink in.   I've decided to spend a few minutes on theory every day in addition to my practice.  I know I can figure it out if I wrap my brain around it long enough. -off topic- Astokes! Yay for new gui...

Re: Beginner Group - Roll Over Beethoven

Last weeks lesson was easier on the fingers, but I was a little concerned about the theory involved.  This week my theory woes are multiplied.   I guess the fact that I could make "Before you Accuse Me" sound decent, helped me accept that I didn't understand the theory.  But I can't make this lesson...
