Re: Any tips ?

Where do *you* put your pinkie ?

So, Where do you put your right hand pinkie when you are picking ? I put my pinkie a bit behind the hole so as to anchor myself ( or my hand ). Its not always behind the hole, but its always at the same distance and angle depending on where I place my hand. When I strum though I don't put my pinkie ...

Re: Strumming, how do *you* do it?

Well I know normal picking ( I think Flatpicking its called or is that another technique altogether ?), know the theory behind sweep picking :P but can't do it yet, I fingerpick, I hybrid pick, the hybrid picking I just learned recently so my pinkie is still getting up to speed, and I also pick with...

Any tips ?

My technique is good ( okay I guess ) I don't have a bass I borrow one from the school, but what I practiced leading p to the bass is my two finger picking, which I already knew how to do but...

Re: Best professional guitarists

Wholenote.com ran a "who is/was the greatest guitarist ever" poll a few years back and Andres Segovia won. Who? A dead Spanish classical guitarist, A :-) Isn't Segovia like the father of the classical guitar ( not like the guitar itself but the style of playing it ). IEDIT: Scratch that, thanks WIk...

Re: Anyone Self taught?

Sorry I am not self taught :P but I just wanna talk. I've been playing for 2 years this month ( same as Minotaur :D ) I think I'm pretty good, but I'm never happy with myself. I mean I can play along to most songs strumming chords. But my picking sucks when I try to do some heavy metal stuff. I can ...

Re: Hey from the hospital

Hang in there and don't try to do too much too soon. Once you're out, continue to get some rest and let your body heal. Man, does it show that I'm old enough to be your grandmother? Seriously, take care of yourself. I found after being without a guitar for over two weeks while traveling, I did get ...

Oh ok :), in that case I'll find one, oh and btw, the G was G7 sorries. can't find one right now, but I could mak...
