Yep, got this one earlier in the week.

A bloody good album and well worth having in your collection. A long time coming and well worth the wait.

A man in a Purple dress and Black widow's eyes are the two stand outs for me.

The best Rock group ever in my humble opinion.

I might be wrong, but I think you are supposed too fret the chord indicated (but don't strum it) and pick the notes indicated.

Hope it helps you if I'm right. If not, sorry I'm pretty new to it myself. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

Probably an idiotic question, but here goes anyway....

I just bought a set of planet waves instrument cables, one end of the lead has the words 'shielded end' printed on it, the other does not.  Question is, does it matter which end I plug into the guitar, pedal or amp?? 

Hope you can help out, cos I'm pretty clueless about such matters.  <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_redface.gif" border=0 alt="Embarassed">

Good idea, anything that aids the effort to keep these sites open has to be worth backing.

I'm still a newcomer to the guitar world,but even at this early stage in my learning I can see that Chordie is a great aid when it comes to finding tabs for songs I like,as well as picking up tips etc.

I'll be using the link to purchase songs from time to time. And I'll be adding my name to any online pettition there is. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

One things for sure, I'm pretty certain my foot can't keep time. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

The thing is, as soon as I try to introduce my foot to help keep time my actual strumming gets shot to pieces, I guess I need to refer to the posts above...I.E 'keep practising'.

Thanks for the advice folks, it's nice too know I can come here for some tips etc. <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

glad to hear your coming along well


id start by saying always play at an angle, keep your fingers angled toward the bridge. trust me that makes a world of difference.

for anymore tips we need to know more about you. are you interested in playing lead.


Um, to be honest I haven't thought that far ahead. At the moment I'm just working on chord progression charts, the odd riff and doing my best at strumming along to a couple of tunes.

My rhythmn isn't exactly too clever,my picking isn't too bad and my chord changes are coming together slowly(less air time) with every passing week.

In answer to your question, I would be happy enough on rhythmn to start off with.Hope that helps some?

I've only been learning guitar for a couple of months and I was hoping some of the more experienced players could give me some tips.

How to avoid bad habbits,how to keep my hard won calluses,some tips to improve the dexterity of my fretting hand, that sort of thing.

If you have any tips at all I would appreciate them.

Thanks.  <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif" border=0 alt="Smile">

I play a Mexican Strat......well, I try to play it anyway!

I've only been playing for a couple of months.
