    Stick to intro or progress through song

    So, I'm much more confident with the transition from intro to main theme in "Going to California". I know it, I just gotta get the muscle memory. So now I'm wondering should I progress through the rest of the song while still working on getting the transition up to record speed or should I get...

    Can't play with recording

    I'm so frustrated. I've gotten the second part of Going to California up to the speed of the recording. Checked it with a metronome. But when I try to play along with the recording it's like my fingers just stop working. Is it just a mental block? How do I get past it? I can play the intro with...

    Can we post acoustic stuff in the riff section too?

    I've been working on some acoustic stuff. I know this school is aimed at electric, but is acoustic welcome too? Rock on.

    Tuning issues

    Ok. So I've had an Epi Les Paul since 2005. It sat neglected in it's case for the last 2 or 3 years. Got it out in October of 2020 and changed the strings. It's been sounding fine the last few months but now it's doing something weird. Clip on tuner says strings are in tune, I've tuned the...

    Fingerpicking

    Do I need nails on my picking hand to finger pick successfully? I find it easier to use my fingertips but the sound isn't as bright as when I use my nails. Maybe it doesn't matter?

    Stairway to Heaven opening chord shape

    Ok. So I'm banging my head against the wall here. Finger picking and the other chord shapes are not a problem. I can't for the life of me figure out how to play that opening chord shape. No matter how I try, I can't get my ring or pinky finger to hit the 7th fret without muting the g string just...

    Guitar EQ booster

    So I'm working on the opening riff to "Fix You" by The Offspring. I found 2 of the power chords that are being picked, and I found one more note but there's another one in there that I can't quite hear with everything else going on. Anyone know of any programs or EQ settings that can bring out a...

    Bomber jacket size question

    Hey everyone. I was thinking of getting the bomber jacket but both size charts are different. Anyone have it? What size chart did you use? I'm shaped funny so I know it won't fit perfectly, but I don't want to have to exchange it for a different size if I don't have to. Thanks.

    Is this cheating?

    Is it cheating if I use tab to double check my ear? I figured out the intro to Heartbreaker by Led Zeppelin but it didn't quite sound right. I double checked with 3 different tabs and they all said that I was correct. Turns out he was putting some bends in there that made my notes sound off...

    Possible key confusion

    So I was picking out Jingle Bells and I thought I had it. But it sure seems like the first part I figured out and the second part I figured out are in different keys but I don't know how to tell. Any help?

    Pantera suggestions?

    So I've been listening to a lot of Avenged recently and I feel like I should be listening to Pantera now. The only song I'm even remotely familiar with is, "Walk". What songs do you all think I should start with? Rock on.

    Hi everybody. My name is Iris from Washington state. Big fan of Avenged and Syn. Signed up about a month ago and finally got around to going and getting my Epi Les Paul electric from my parents house along with my older than dirt little Fender amp. Really excited to start learning and meeting...
