Re: Mystery Chord

The back-story is my guitar teacher wants he and I to work out a song based on the C scale. Keep in mind that I am a green beginner, slow learner, etc. (More about me if you click that globe button to the right under my profile picture.) He is only expecting me to find a chord progression I like by ...

Re: Mystery Chord

or rather it is an Esus4? That guitarchordmagic.com/guitar-chord-finder thing is neat.

Re: Mystery Chord

Ok, don't beat me . . . Turns out the first chart I typed was wrong. OK, #1 it turns out is an A5, both strings fretted at the 2nd fret (not one on the first) SORRY! I was shown to make a Bdim from fretting the G and E on the first fret and strumming 4 strings X-X-0-1-0-1, but when I pick out the st...

Mystery Chord

I have a tune I have been working on, and I am getting pretty satisfied, so I am trying to transcribe it to paper. I can't find these shapes on a chord chart though. I am wondering if there is a web site with a neck where you click your finger placement spots and it tells you the chord? In the meant...

Re: Very first scale PATTERN for a beginner to learn

Thanks for letting me know what fingering patterns across the frets you all use. I mentioned to my instructor how it was difficult to make the stretch and he offer to try something else, but I told him I wanted to work on it for a couple of more weeks before considering that. I suspect that learning...

Very first scale PATTERN for a beginner to learn

First of all, let me say that I am still visiting this site regularly to read new items in the beginners forum, and working with lessons - although, very slowly. A couple of times I thought to post an inquiry about one thing or another but figured I would get the (what I find a little frustrating) s...

Re: Used Guitar Info needed - Ibanez AEF28CS

For the benefit of those who may come behind me, here are the answers I found: 1. I think Blueline is correct; only purists will have an issue with an acoustic vs. acoustic/electric. 2. After looking all around for the Ibanez guitar original retail MSRP answer, I first; did not find it, and second, ...

Used Guitar Info needed - Ibanez AEF28CS

I have two questions, and this is probably not the right forum, but I looked and I didn't see a better one - so... I think I might like a better acoustic guitar. Question 1: Does an acoustic guitar sound better than a acoustic/electric guitar of the same setup. I assume it makes no difference - but ...

Re: Questions about teacher and lessons

I have experienced these same frustrations and also found that it was "I" who had to fix the situation. I came to my teacher a raw beginner back in January and the first two weeks were ok, but I quickly felt that there was no plan or goals. I would even directly ask where are we going, and the answe...

Re: Sheet music

Try looking at your local library. The St. Louis County libraries have a large collection of fake books with guitar tabs that I like to look through.

Re: Buzz not from the strings

could it be a bad cable? if you unplug (from the amp end) the cable to the guitar - does that effect it?

That was quick! In the time it took me to click "reply" and compose a message, David had already responded with a solution!

Re: Hoping for help resolving my G chord difficulties...

Hey, I was just having a look at your message and thinking I know so little myself that I would have to get tabs for the song and try it myself. Sounds cool, I think I will look for the tabs anyway. But getting back to your question . . . I have only been playing - or working on playing - since Janu...

Re: New Addition

I think many people start out with an inexpensive guitar because they are not sure that they can learn it or stick with it. Like exercise equipment, I think most guitars get used intensively for 6 months then collect dust for several years with the intention of returning to it. Finally they get recy...
