I was not going to submit to this contest until I realized how much it is parallel to what I've started doing with the beato book I recently purchased it. Since the two are related I have added the video here as a submission. Its longer then planned.. but I do all 7 chords. You don't have to follow them all. It starts off sluggish with the open notes on bflat but it gets better. Next week I plan to make a simple chord progression using the chords. If you want to suggest a progression for me to play over that'll be helpful. I could pick it myself.. but its more challenging if you pick it for me. I'll do the video of finding the scales I need with the chords from the progression. Then ill record it and solo over it and add that too. Thats basically my plans going forward. But for now.. you can watch me play the chords in the family. Big tip.. I am a FULL STEP down. Pg teaches you these same chords in c major standard tuning. (I'm step down g minor/bflat major)

  • As it appears my buddy Ryan is back with me to try and write material together again. It looks like we will use the name dinner with the reaper. He gave me some drum tracks that I've added guitar parts to. We also have a buddy who will play guitar with me. While no centz will still carry out material this could become my main project going forward. I'd post the riffs but I don't wanna give too much away yet.
    Didnt actually do a video for a song this weekend. Some of the songs coming up dont really need a video so ill be skipping those for here. There will be a written blog its just too long to post here without taking up forum posts.

    2 years ago today I last saw avenged. Here's the album content. I'll add the videos in the comments

    Have decided that I won't post the blog links cause i dont think anyone is really going to them due to having to sign in. Id post them here if the status would fit 3500 characters. We need a blog feature here.
    Came across an article today from a local paper. This article contains a story of a house fire. The victims in the fire.. are the same people who robbed me of my guitars in 2019. Karma comes around full circle. You get what you give. Unrelated to the site.. cept for those you may remember this story.

    I have noticed that status updates can hold more characters. Is there now an unlimited amount of characters you can use? Cause I dont see it, and I think thats a great upgrade.
    When Day Turns To Night

    this weekend will probably contain another 2 of these due to the time I got off work tonight. I'll do the video tomorrow. While the structure of this song isn't your typical song its actually one of my favourites. For that reason. It's one of the first songs where I started to explore song structures that werent always the same patterns. im also trying to make them a little shorter. Last one was 20 minutes long.. so thats not bad considering the song was 6 minutes long. Let me know if I need to cut back more time. I can try to use smaller and less words .. but thats a very hard thing for me to do lol.

    Im basically doing a written blog in reverb Nation and a video blog here explaining what I wrote. I see a lot fo students say they struggle writing songs. So im gonna show them what i did when I started (the ones you're seeing now) and how they were laid out. And eventually that will lead into the ones written with the help of the school. These ones don't really add up with theory perfectly but if you look past the theory side and look at the structure a lot of it makes sense. I didnotice you need a account to read the blog. They are free theres a premium too but im not here telling you to make an account. But my music is there for now. Looking for alternate routes for spotify. You can always pm me and I can always send files.

    Here is revenge review. I forgot to play the song at the end. But you can always go to my reverbnation account to listen.

    First video of a weekly series I will be attempting. Recently purchased the beato book (which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE PURCHASE) which opened my eyes to a lot of things I've never looked into before that I missed or didn't bother looking into at this school. Not that the material isn't laid out well here the beato book kind of puts things into a more detailed perspective. Anyways, being a step down on my guitar, I started with the basic chords to the scale I learned first (which is the g minor/bflat major). Using these chords I made up a pattern and eventually near the end tried to put it into a song but couldn't do it due to my fingers tensing up.. I hit stop took a stretch and finished it off. The audio is in the comments

    Long and detailed. I explain some history and other trivia. I did not explain the solo before the bridge so I'll explain here best as possible for william. I start on (10th fret 6th string) and shred triplets up to the 22nd fret (g octave up). All over an open c chord. But I begin playing the g originally off a g in the chorus (it's a g pull off to an open before hitting the g again for the bridge). So in my head it works. I thought of making it a c major scale.. it's just one shift. But I decided to leave it. Sounds good the way it is.
