    Demo in the works!

    Finally got with a band that shares the same passion for music as I do and starting next weekend we will be hitting the books on writing some original material. Probably won't be the best sounding music at first but I believe in time we can only improve 😎 I'll post more content and videos soon...

    Challenging myself (16th notes)

    I was practicing to a metronome this weekend and realized that I can only play 16th notes at around 95bpm. My goal for this month is to bump that up to 160bpm. I'll be trying to put up weekly videos of my progress as this is something that I will need to practice daily to reach that goal. One...

    Circle of Fifths Made Easy (For Guitar)

    Here's a video that really helped me understand how to use the Circle of Fifths as a guitar player. I hope this video helps someone as much as it has helped me as I do not really use sheet music to play the guitar

    Mission Accomplished

    After months of practicing and studying I've finally completed the beginners course of this awesome site. I've played for years and when I found this community the CAGED method was unheard of to me and that's when I knew I had to take the time to take advantage of what this website has to offer...

    THANK YOU PAPA GATES!

    In honor of Teacher appreciation week I'd like to say thank you to Synyster Gates, Papa Gates, and the SGS admins and staff that make this website possible! This site is very unique and in my personal opinion much better than the other online "guitar schools" I've found. Everything on this...

    Send riffs

    Do you have cool content on the SGS community you wish someone would notice? Comment to this thread so I can check out your media. As musicians I think it's important for us to lift each other up to the pedestal we want to reach. I am by no means an expert player nor am I in any position to give...

    Trying to Upload

    I'm currently trying to upload a short video from my phone of me playing some simple pentatonic patterns but when I try to upload it I get an error code saying the file is to big. The video is less than 2 minutes long. I'm just trying to show off what I learned in the CAGED lesson. Any advice on...

    Breakthrough (Long Story)

    I've wanted to play guitar ever since I heard the song "A Little Piece of Heaven" when I was 11 years old. When I turned 13 I got my first electric guitar and started learning what I could whenever I could. I even played some songs for a small church in my town. I wanted to play lead guitar and...

    Whammy Bar for Les Paul

    I'm trying to add a tremelo system (whammy bar) to my Epiphone Les Paul without having to drill into my guitar. I've looked into a Floyd Rose or a Stetsbar but I'm not sure what to look for. Heres a pic of my Les Paul if it'll help.
