Hi Ben
I have just seen your new lesson, another bookmark added!

I noticed in the lesson notation you used a rest. Would it have been the same to add a dot on or above the note?

Anyway, it will take a while but I will post my rec of this lesson.

Have a great day,
Carmine

No, sir! A rest means that there is a complete halt in your playing. Rests even have different values, just like notes! Think of it as a moment of silence.

Hi Carmine, yes Nihilist is right.. adding a dot would elongate the note but not have a pause, which is what we want. The rest means we cut off the chord and have a pause before playing the next one smile.gif

That is classic - good find ! biggrin.gif

P.S. I listened to Devil Doll yesterday, really interesting stuff. I see what you mean about him having a very expressionate voice. It really is like a great religious horror movie soundtrack smile.gif

Most of his inspiration(mine as well) Comes from classic horror films. Especially the silent ones such as Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I personally feel as if those films have greater philosophical importance than today's, and it reminds me of classic literature, and I do love reading my classic literature.

May I ask what song you listened to?

No, maybe I did not explain well. A dotted note makes the note longer. Sometimes staccato is express with a dot ON the note not next to it. I was wondering if there is any difference between the staccato I mentioned and the rest.

Thanks in advance

Yes, Sacrelegium.. not thw whole thing, because I was dying to get my guitar and practice something but quite a bit of it smile.gif

Yeah, although I've never seen the whole film, the short clips of Nosferatu used to scare the hell out of me wink.gif

Hey Carmine, ok I would use one of the slower backing tracks and instead of counting one bar as 4 quarter notes, like 1 ,2 ,3 ,4 double it up and count it as 8 8th notes.

1 , 2 , 3 ,4 ,5 ,6 ,7 ,8

That means the chords occur on the 2, 4, 6 and 8. If you keep the count and just start trying to play the chords along with your count in those places you'll start getting the feel of it. Just make sure to do it slow enough to allow you to do this. I hope that helps smile.gif

Thanks Ben.
Is the drum on the beat 1, 3, 5, 7 (practically in the down beat) counting in the way you have just told me?

Thanks in advance,

Carmine

PS I really have to learn how to listen to backing track!

Well, if you count 8th notes, which is the second method I mentioned then the snare drum only occurs on the 3 and the 7. Don't think about the kick drum, just think of the snare drum. But you won't be playing at the same time the snare hits. I hope this will make it easier to understand ? smile.gif
