Most popular riff

This is my audition over the blues part of the backingtrack. I had it down pretty fast but took a while to get some tiny mistakes I didn't like out and syncing up audio with video is hard.

  • You know those days where you hear nothing in your head while improvising, no melody no nothing, so you just run licks and patterns you know making it sounds ridiculously inspired. I'm having one of those. I can't come up with anything worthwhile and I have been trying for an hour or so.


    I'm also pretty tired so that's probably the reason. I guess it time to put the guitar down and play assassin's creed or something😅
    So we call power chords 5 chords, righ? Like D5, E5 etc. But aren't power chords on the low E string technically just minor triads? :unsure:

    Okay, not sure if I can follow. But three note power chords are also a thing, right? And playing them on the low E string would basicly make up the first three notes of a minor chord if I am not mistaken. That was where I was going.

    Three note powerchords are usually root, fifth, octave. Otherwise it's kinda just a chord because a powerchords really is kinda defined as just a root and a fifth. Analyze the notes present in the chord and you'll know whether it is a powerchords or not

    what Ids said...
    There's this easy gypsy jazz tune I like to solo over called Dark Eyes. I always used to struggle with coming up with ideas over that one which is weird because it's like one of the easy ones(just like minor Swing you can get away with just using one scale). I've been playing lots of gypsy jazz lately and suddenly that whole run out of idea thing kind of dissapeared. I love moments like that.

    Also, I practice gypsy jazz by playing over tunes and it works. That's probably also the reason I barely upload myself playing it(I simply turn on a backingtrack and start playing over it 😅)
    Ok there are too many online gypsy jazz guitar schools. Robin Nolan, Joscho Stephan, Stochelo Rosenberg and than you have al lot of courses in DC music school(in the style of Birelli lagrene and jimmy Rosenberg are the two most notable ones)

    I think I'll first finish the courses I have In Robin's school and the two courses I have in DC music school before I start going into Joscho Stephan's school, Stochelo Rosenberg's school, the Birelli Lawrence courses and jimmy Rosenberg courses 😅

    All while remaining a member of the gypsy jazz transfusion club of course 😅
    I'm reading the interview with Brian May in the latest issue of total guitar and it's really great!

    Also, I think I should try listening to the temperance seven because that's where he got inspiration for the harmonies from

    Also, I just got to the part where he gets curious where certain people are. Asking about Jeff Beck and Dimebag Darrell. Afterward the interviews goes on to say where Mark Tremonti, Synyster Gates and Nuno Bettencourt are placed. In the interview doesn't really go into Mark Tremonti or Syn but he goes on about Nuno Bettencourt for a long time calling him underrated and one of the best living guitarist.
    In case anybody was wondering about Marty Friedman's picking technique, he's gypsy picking 😅

    I envy him because gypsy picking is weird to pick up(I basically only took elements of it that I considered absolutely essential to playing gypsy jazz and getting the volume/sound I was looking for) especially for people playing rock/metal, he just learned himself playing like that from a young age and plays his music like that.
    Am I weird for liking John Mayer's version of All along the Watchtower more than Jimi's?
    Here's Jimi's
    And here is John Mayer's

    May be a tone thing but idk

    I think it doesn't necessarily work that way. There's like a steady state or a saturation point where adding more doesn't do a lot anymore in terms of fullness. However, if you take one of them away you will miss it nonetheless

    What i mean by full, Is that you have 3 guitarists, one of which does lead AND vocals. He gets more freedom and his job is easier. So if John Mayer misses a chord, or fudges a note (rare but which happens to the best of us!) you wouldnt be able to tell as much unless youre watching him like a hawk you know? Thats what i mean

    I do genuinely think his guitar is louder than the others. I mean all those little diddly food he does while singing are louder than anything else.
    Basically, in cleaning my room right now and while doing that I start thinking 'hmm, Alan Holdsworth uses some beautiful chords maybe I should try putting his songs in the harmony polls'

    Haven't really chosen one but it will happen someday probably
    I just figured that when I do a tutorial for a solo I should split it up in multiple parts to make sure they won't be ridiculously long to sit through. Floods has the benefit that you can pretty clearly distinguish between 2 parts of the solo.

    I like how you can learn something new every day 😅
