    Barre F Chord

    PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE! Seriously it feels so unnatural at first but with time it is so easy and you probably wont get it overnight, I certainly didnt. If you have trouble with stretching try the shape at higher frets (for example a C chord at the 8th fret).

    Tapping issues

    When i was learning it i started it slow and just did the pull off to 9 and hammer on to 11. It really is that simple when you think about it, but it is super important to nail the rhythm/timing slow. Then you can just speed it up from there. As for the muting the left hand is the same as...

    New riff, any tips?

    Warmness on the soul is one of my favourite solos to play, You should learn both solos for so far away and gunslinger. Gunslinger is especially fun to play.

    Pentatonic scale. I know a lot about the major scale, like the pattern of how to get the notes in a major scale ,WWHWWWH. but the lessons about the pentatonic scale dont really explain why the notes are what they are or the pattern for them. Plus i still only know the basic position for all...

    Changing strings

    I get what you mean, these are the steps i follow. Get the string through the tuner with enough left over to wrap it around 2-3 times.

    Changing strings

    Temporarily having all the strings off does not have a negative effect on your neck or truss rod. You can leave it for days and it wont really effect it much, plus how else can you clean it properly. As for getting the string tight around the peg i hold the string tight or sort of pull it...

    I wish I had 2500 lol

    I wish I had 2500 lol

    I could very easily afford one but I’ve already got a syn custom and 2500usd (considering i live in Aus aswell) is a lot for a guitar i already own just in a different colour. Yes its cool but paying like $4000 of my own currency for a korean made guitar still makes me say no to it.
