Re: The B note buzzes when I slide or hammer on.....

Well, if it only happens on that one note, then it's not your amp.

You might have a fret that's standing a bit proud higher up the neck

Re: Question on practicing guitar

Continue with the routine - concentrating on one area at the expense of the others only brings limited improvement

Re: Modifying an Ibanez RG120

Everything except changing the finish is a matter of buying the right stuff, following the instructions to the letter and not rushing it. I don't know how you're going to deal with the finish.

You can buy a new guitar for less money than the cost of the mods you're looking to make.

Re: Greetings ! Ibanez piccolo guitar.

Well, everything's tuned up a 4th, so play E-shape and you'll get A-something. Play B-shape and you'll get E-something

Re: using whole tone in rock

It's going to work more in a Jazz context. Look for chords with -#11 or -b13 suffixes

Re: What guitar technique is used in this video?

Violining - volume down to zero, play your note/chord, volume up steadily (don't just ram it back to 10 because you want steady volume swell)

Re: What is the effect pedal used by the guitarist?

He could easily be using a pedal to record a loop (as Ed Sheeran does live), or the band could be miming to their final mix complete with overdubs

Re: first time ^^

The Sunday Songwriters board exists to accept individual responses to a theme - as your lyrics don't seem to fit a SSG theme I've moved it to the Songwriting Club board.

Re: Bass Guitars Comparision

It's inexpensive, comes with zero hype, and I've gigged it successfully.

Re: What scale would I play over this chord?

For the Bb+ chord it's time to start tinkering with the G major scale and start focussing on chord tones. I'd be looking to emphasise G (in the G chord), F# (in the Bb+) to F natural (in the Dm) followed by G# (in the E7), G natural (in C) and finishing with F# (in D) to give a pair of chromatic mov...
