Try making sure the notes ring out individually. Hold your hand on the chord as you would and play the strings individually to make sure each string is sounding properly and then play the power chord as a complete chord. smile.gif


Im afraid its still all messed up sad.gif

It might be how the guitar is set up or a problem with how you're playing it. Is there anybody you know who plays the guitar near you that you can ask for help?

You'll get there. It just takes practice. You wont sound exactly like Kris as he has his own tone

Yeah. That is the best way for getting help. Or just record through a rubbish computer mic and we may be able to tell you what is wrong.

When I first started it sounded like someone threw a frightened cat at a chalkboard. laugh.gif It'll take a while before it sounds decent. I'm still not happy with the way I play, and I've got over a year on you. It's natural to sound badly at first, I think.

I tried tapping, SAME SOUND biggrin.gif But, on the basic tapping lesson, 1-2-3. finger on,right, finger off, right
BUT THEN, when im supposed to take my ring finger off. it makes no sound, i guess one of the strings are touching the index finger, wich i use on the 12th fret. and its no sound, but i just cant hold it any other way, to make that sound sad.gif

Wow, that explenation sucked :S

Take your time mate, time is on your side for sure, how long have you been playing?
concentrate on chords to begin with to get your left hand working and in sync with your right picking hand strumming out a few different chord changes, make sure your getting the chords (I`d stick with some open chords to begin with) to really ring out so your not muting any of the other strings with a stray finger, it all takes time, a lot of patience and practice smile.gif

You'll pick it up, bit by bit, sometimes without even knowing you're learning, and after a few months you'll be surprised how much better you are. I remember the beginning (not too long ago) and it's definitely the hardest part. It'll start to be more fun after a certain point.

I hope so, now im not having fun at all, im just constantly pushing myself,

To get you started, we have put together a 6-step course that will make you play in less than twenty minutes! These six lessons cover some of the basics that you need to learn on your way to become a great guitarist.

Erm. ive used like 3 hours on the first one...

laugh.gif Once you start to learn the regular lessons that are more about music and less about theory and technique I bet you'll have fun.

ok, i find the video incredibly stupid, no offence, but on an E5 Powerchord, he holds on the 2nd fret, on the 4th string, upper 4th, but he only plays on the 5th string, so it makes the same sound whatsoever...
