Thanks for a informative answer!
I use power chords with added octave. you cant really do minor power chord.

I start of with E and move to B, sound good. But I dont know about the G#minor since i can use power chord there.

-------------------------------------------
---------12-9--10--12-------------------
-9-9--------------------------7---------
-9-9--------------------------7-------G#minor?---
-7--7-------------------------5---------
---------------------------------------

Can you use C# chord instead or something? Or shall we pick another key
I think I want to use D major instead now that I think of it

Hey Erik, of course you can play a minor power chord - I mean I like to call them like that - check this out:

D-------7---
A-------3---
E-------5---

you can look at this as a minor power chord - if you add distortion smile.gif the 5th doesn't matter that much, so we can exclude and replace it with a minor 3rd smile.gif have you tried using these?

If we would switch to the D major scale your progression would become D A F#m G A nothing bad with this but if we stick to the E B G#m A B in the E major scale, you can use open string chords which would suit the 'summer feel' purpose way better than the D major wink.gif

What say you?

Cosmin

Okay lets go with e minor. I have an idea using open strings, playing them, using only two chords and playing pentatonic over it. The backing will change between those two forms. Well Im sometimes bad explaining in english, I will record and show instead.

E--4---

And wait, one more thing.
I had a D in my progression, I wrote the wrong chord I think.
Should be E, D, C#m,A,B something like that,

Hey mate - yes, the G#minor chord looks like that. You'd help loads if you'd show me what you mean, because out of what I understood, the whole progression was in E major not minor smile.gif

let me know wink.gif

Of course, in the Key of E Major smile.gif
So I did som recording, you here the first chord, E and then G. The third chord???? I dont know which one, nothing really sounds correct hehe.
So to these chords I need a third one, with a similar variation between it.

Well, you see in my progression, I skipped one chord And went to play E, D, A as an ending!
Baam baam -di da di di, baam baam di di di di, (skipped chord) bam, bam bam. What is that chord supposed to be?
And of course if necessary change the chords a bit, but I want to keep that idea.

Also, in the end of the file I added another backing idea, My idea is to switch between the first and second idea. I just use E and D in the second, I can play some pentatonics over that, kinda of rock. Maybe I will do them open instead.

Well I might not be the easiest student to work with here tongue.gif
But I hope you understand now smile.gif

Yes this was very helpful! I will raise the tempo and play it a little different.
So which chord were power chords? Did you take the dsus4 as an open chord?

Hey Cosmin, time to start practice serioustly for me now, I have lots of time for guitar now.
So we were working on theory remember? Well I have learnt the first 4 # up to E major, and im beginning on the flats, thinking of learning up to the 4 th. I have not started singing the notes yet, shall I start to do that?

I can come up with an effective methode to learning the names of the notes. The most effective one is reading notes, I did it when playing classical, but I only played up to the 5 th fret, so the notes above I dont know very well, I have to think to know them.
What methode did you use?

Also regarding harmonizing, the most important thing maybe is learning the names of the notes that make the certain chord up rather than the position?

And the lessons, I should work with them right? So I go with my ESP for drop tuning then.
Also I will work on my new song, but that is free time wink.gif
cheers

Aloha Erik! biggrin.gif

Let's take them one at a time wink.gif

Singing the notes is crucial my friend, it'll make a huge difference in time smile.gif so YES, DO START RIGHT AWAY!

About learning the notes smile.gif I liked to know what I was playing so I simply broke down the passages i was learning, be it chords, melodies, riffs, whatever and analyzed them on the neck - in time, I realized I knew what was where biggrin.gif

Regarding harmonizing - YES! That's the way to do it smile.gif positions help you in the visual direction, but knowing the notes will allow you to play those chords everywhere wink.gif

Now, with the lessons, sure man! Can't wait to see some drop tuned meanness from you biggrin.gif

let's rock!!

Cosmin
