Re: Perfect absolute pitch course

Its not so much out of tune music.. My friend with PP is quite a fan of Van Halen, and theyre earlier records are tuned all over the place because Eddie and Michael tuned to themselves rather than a...

Re: Perfect absolute pitch course

Its kinda like how you recognise colour. You see it, you know it. You didnt know what "red" was until you learned thats what that 'sight' was called. Same with sound; Those with perfect pitch hear...

Re: Perfect absolute pitch course

Its crap. Perfect pitch has been found to have a largely a genetic basis, and is only truly able to be taught to those who are very young and still have sensory development (in experiments, it was...

Re: Melodic scale

I never said it wasnt used.. just that its not a lot to be concerned with. Its usefulness is limited to basically keeping a minor tonality around the minor tonic rather than drifiting to the major...

Re: Melodic scale

Melodic minor is a tricky scale, thats not really necessary anymore; "good practice" went out the window a long time ago, man!

The natural minor scale (the Aeolian mode) had the problem (as all...

Re: Advice on harmonizing (not lame 3rds and 5ths)

Well if you wish to look into it further, then you can try full on voice-leading type harmony (which will turn out like a chorale type piece of music, which I personally would imagine will sound...

Re: Advice on harmonizing (not lame 3rds and 5ths)

You're kinda picking an idea that just doesnt go very well into metal unless you want to sound very neo-classical. Harmonising is an area of music in which, things need to be done right, or theyll...

Re: Nicolas Slominsky's Thesaurus of scales and melodic patterns

They are, but also, almost useless as they are in the book. A "polyrhythmic scale" in this book, is basically a scale in two octaves, one scale played at a different note value than the other (the...

Re: Nicolas Slominsky's Thesaurus of scales and melodic patterns

Think Buckethead :) Theyre "spirals" because they converge or diverge, which is to say the intervals get closer or further apart as the lick goes on. An example being:

C B Db Bb D A Eb Ab etc....

Re: i'm on a visit to london please help finding guitar stores

Denmark street is awesome.

And as for the amp, if you could stretch to 160 (what i paid for mine, atleast) you could get a Roland Cube 30. Its a very nice practice amp.

Re: Playability on guitars in general

A better guitar is not one that makes it "easy" to play, It is one that makes it easy to "play".

Re: How fast can you shred?

I can do sextuplets strictly alt picking at around 130 comfortably; faster is pushing it and isnt so clean and/or not so rhythmicly accurate. I can go loads faster legato/tapping/sweeping though.

Re: NGD! Carvin Ultra V! Another winner!

The tone in the metal clip is horrible. The tone in the leads clip is outstanding. Why would you ever kill that tone with more gain?

Re: Favorite exotic scales?

I'm a fan of the diminished and wholetone scales. They seem too short/long respectively, and I rather like the sounds of diminished and augmented chords.

Usually one of the three Jazz III's. Most often the Ultex, but I prefer the Stiffo (black) ones for a clean tone as they get a trebly tone which isnt as sharp as the ultex.
