Since most of us is thrown all over the world, I just had an idea that it could be fun to share the names of most popular guitar terms written in Your native language biggrin.gif For example my, polish terms:


Lick = Zagrywka
Chord = Akord
Scale = Skala
Fret = Próg
Pickup = Przetwornik
Bridge = Mostek
Palm Muting = Tłumienie dłonią
Finger = Palec
Bar = Takt
Note = Nuta
Alternate Picking = Kostkowanie naprzemienne

I just wonder how those sound / are written in Your language smile.gif

Heh, excellent thread, Darius. Some of the older guitarists in Poland call tapping technique - "dzięcioły"
dzięcioł = woodpecker smile.gif

I still remember those funny moments when I was a kid and I asked some more expirienced players for "how to do this, how it's called" adn some of them had no idea so they gave those techniques some weird names and bothered to try top explain something they didn't understand tongue.gif

Here's the deal in Romanian biggrin.gif

Scale = Gama
Fret = Tasta
Pickup = Doza
Bridge = Punte
Palm Muting = A palma
Finger = Deget

I'd also add:

16th notes = Saisprezecimi or 'maruntele' which literally means 'little ones' laugh.gif The old players say that in here biggrin.gif
Dive bomb = 'Fluierata' - another term which was used by the guys which grew in the 70-80s. It means 'a whistled one'

My fellow countrymen, feel free to correct me:

Lick = Lick (we stick to the english term here)
Chord = Akkord
Scale = Skala
Fret = Bund
Pickup = Tonabnehmer
Bridge = Brücke
Palm Muting = abdämpfen or abgedämpft spielen
Finger = Finger
Bar = Takt
Note = Note
Alternate Picking = schneller Wechselschlag (had to look that one up, mostly we also refer to the english term)

So, in English they would be:-
Lick = What a Cat or Dog does to you.
Chord = The noise you make when you hit 3 or more strings at the same time.
Scale = The white stuff in the bottom of my kettle.
Fret = What I do when I get letters from the Taxman.
Pickup = What I try to do on a Friday Night!!
Bridge = A completely non-sensical Card Game.
Palm Muting = Noise reduction for Coconut Trees.
Finger = What bad criminals do when they grass on each other.
Bar = The place to go to pickup.
Note = What I get from the Doctor to get me off work.
Alternate Picking = Ambidextrous pickpocket!!!
