why does the lead guitarist look like some Chinese president https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPgf_btTFlc
>>85848732New anime thread to kick off the evening, to be motivated to practice... What a feeling.Thanks OP
i want to buy a shitty inexpensive practice amp to use as a texture on my recordings
>>85848826You've already got an Alien.
>>85848922 it costed 2k brl in 2013
>>85848928>2k brlSo $20?
i'll write a note to remember to noodle the "here comes your man" between songs on our next reharsal to see if the band follows and we jam on it
>>85848928what was the name of your highschool?
>the "here comes your man" riff
>>85849039school for prodigious kids
>>85849074you need to study your characters, I'm getting tired of your shit. It was the Villa-lobos Highschool, from the brazilian composer. Which is ironic, if you think about it, because he is the greatest composer on Brazil's history.
What type of guitar do I want for mac demarco tier music but also metal?
>>85849122lmao thats not even half near me
>>85849122>he went to a school called "Hobo's Villa"
>>85848980Gigantic would be a good song to jam tohttps://youtu.be/YhDuN-MbVQ0
How do I git gud at writing power ballads? I love to listen to them but my god, I can't write them to save my life.
Surfer Rosa was peak Pixieshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3r-xMt9JmM
>>85849367There are enough power ballads. Write something else.
>>85849432How about some shower ballads?
>>85849122fuck off, creepo>>85849367idk just listen to that music, learn to play it and youll eventually find yourself noodling some original balladsi dont listen to much music anymore since i got this job in may
> singer-songwriter/basic fingerpicking stuff is no longer fun to play and sing> stuff that would be much more enjoyable and rewarding takes too much effort to learnI should've spent time grinding the basics way back when I first started
>>85849219>>85849450what is sammy's username on cifraclub?
>>85849447Flower ballads>>85849432For the record I don't mean shit like November Rain or Every Rose Has Its Thorn. I just don't even have the foundation for it.
>>85849475 what the hell do you want
>>85849447How bout some proper toilet music for playing when you're on the shitter
>>85849494prepare you for when i'm gone
rate bass tone https://instaud.io/3iac
>>85849473Learn some advanced fingerpicking friendo, it's fun as fuck and very rewarding
>>85849511still not getting it bro
>>85849561you'll do, eventually
>>85849570you'll do me harm?
I know that this question is highly subjective and depends on the individual, but just how good of a player do you think you could be within 2 years from nothing? Is it a total hours thing?
>>85849651>Is it a total hours thing?yes
>>85849651>is it a total hours thing?No. 1000 hours of dicking around is vastly different from 1000 hours of intense and dedicated practice.
>>85849696alright, are there any resources regarding progression/structure where I can spend 1000 hours without making them useless?
>>85849736in my personal experience, a one size fits all resource of things you should know flat out doesn't work.You need to spend time thinking about what you want to be able to do, and then start drilling the shit out of it. You're not going to have the dedication you need to excel unless you work on things that genuinely interest you.
>>85849651>Is it a total hours thing?No. The variables involved are:- Total hours of practice;- Quality of practice;- Your talent.
>>85849651Total hours is a thing but it depends on how you use those hours. 1000 of noodling you'll get no where, a 1000 of practicing you'll be getting places but still 1000s more to go. Also helps if you're younger or have a more autistic brain that can learn patterns well
I love the sound of bass but I just like the freedom of guitar I still can’t pick one wtf
>>85850049this guy gets it
>>85850120you know you can play both, right?
>>85849557Where 2 start?
>>85849406Mio give me a Bone Machine if you know what I mean
>>85850154Oops forgot to mention I can barely play piano decently and have no experience with any strings. I know I can play both but I feel like learning both at the same time could only be a bad thing?>>85850147I want to be in demand.
how to lower the action of a les paul without getting it to sound quacky out of the buzz
>>85850218Sorry, you can't fix a warped neck.
>>85850218Need a $6K custom shop, minimum. Samuel! Start saving up
>>85850176My personal progression was Scruggs style > Travis picking > funk rhythm patterns without a pick > Spanish guitar techniquesChet Atkins style is also really good, I personally just skipped it
>>85850218You bend strings too much to lower your action. Keep it high.
>>85850204if you prefer the sound of the bass, that's what you should play. You'll also definitely be in greater demand if you're a bassist
>>85850359The action on Sammy's shitplanks is like half a centimetre.
>>85850388I just won’t be able to do all of the cool parts of songs like a guitar which is a little disappointing I guess because to me, bass solos sound infinitely worse than guitars but I prefer every other sound.
Dialed in that Pixies bass tone, time to learn some of their goddamn music
name a better guitar than a maple board tele w/ neck humbucker (you can't)
>>85850447Cliff Burton disagrees
>>85850447like I said before, you can play both. the only real difference between guitar and bass is the scale length and the thickness of the strings
>>85850447why solo when you can lay down some sick basslines https://youtu.be/6NVk7nStSu4
>>85850493I can respect the skill and it’s my untrained ear but anesthesia sounds like shit
>>85850474nope, I can't.
>>85850187I would break Mio's body, not because I have something against her but I have broken my face from using my Gigantic fucking boner on myself and am nosebleeding like the River Euphrates if you catch my drift.
>>85850474my PRSit’s all about the tonewood and bindings
>>85850474literally any resonator
>>85850690how about you bind this dick to your mouth
>>85850474Ebony fretboard emg 85 (neck if its not obvious)
>>85850359 it's not for me, it's the singer's guitar, he lend it at my house for a setup until bands next reharsal
I got a bass as a gift a while ago and learned a few cool riffs and then forgot about it. Now I wanna get into it again. How do I teach myself efficiently without sucking all the fun out of it?
Hey Jcum. You could totally take the title from this guyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fqc_ktntWEs
Whats is a good guitar around 1k (i can give or take up and down) for playing music inspired by at the drive in, coheed and cambria, sikth, and type o negative,
>>85850949>tfw won't get home in time to masturbate to this before the mods delete it
>>85850949>itty bitty titty
>>85850966it would be much cheaper to get a rickety stool and some rope
>>85850949>he could have bought himself a Gibson for Christmas>he bought a Dean and a Realdoll instead
>>85850966Definitely not anything by Dean, a bad company that makes bad guitars for bad guitarists.
If you learn guitar can I join a band and live off this?
>>85851102Nice Brazilian engineering!
>>85851047900fag IS a realdoll. He plays like one, too.
>>85850949Wait where did you get the girl and how did you get her to pose naked with your guitar and how did you get her to write >arthoe on her boob

>>85851157I look more like this
>>85851295Check the archive
>>85851295It's a chick that posted it a few days back. He saved it.
>>85851475I did. Is it not a girl?
>>85851505no, finally jcum is traveling to brazil, but Sammy wants titties. Check the archive. It is a well documented plan.
>>85851458did you get a gf JCMfag?

>>85851529What's the point of making shit up?
>>85851547It's not his. His has a white headstock
>>85851586look the archive, is there. If it's there, it's a fact.
jcum saved the xvideos page of sammy dreaming of sammys monkey milk on her new titties. >Love is in the air, everywhere I look around>Love is in the air, every sight and every soundEverything makes sense now.
>>85851581Those guitars are hair metal/shred guitars, not 90's gothic metal guitars.
>>85851650paint them black
>>85851612I was there when it happened
>>85851596Oh yah forgot. I was getting depressed for a moment.
roman was the trap leader, jcum the follower, but plot twist, sammy fucks them all. I was not expecting this /gaygay/. Well played. Are you girls going to start a band?
>>85851533I have a wife
>>85852095cool man i'm happy for you i hope she likes your guitar playing
>>85852095i have a name for your band: jcum and the pussytraps
>>85851966Roman is the deceiver. Do not believe his lies.
>>85852152sammy still fucks her
Relative newfag here, I've been playing guitar for 3 years. I can read/learn tabs but I have no idea how to write music/compose or how to make a song sound "good". What video/tutorial should I start with if I want to learn this?
>>85852109How do you think i got laid on the first date?
>>85851547Thats a custom 450 mine is a custom 550
>>85852227There's no one definitive way to write a good song (unless you write pop music :3) go watch a bunch of different videos by different people and you'll start getting an idea of how the process works
i need to get a better job so i can afford a room full of guitars and amps and recording gear
>>85852508I thought you were going to say>i need to get a better job so i can afford a room for jcummie
I need to get a better general so I don't have to read blog posts all day
>>85852549Nice blog! I'll be sure to share it on Twitter and upboat over on /r/Guitar as well!
>>85852508Get into construction. (I know he wont make it but it will be funny). Or sell drugs and / or your body to the night.
>>85852549in all honesty every other guitar forum is better than this place
>>85852573Construction is literally nigger work. Long hours, destroys your body. Usually a bunch of lazy unionfags. You can do way less work and make more money than that shit
>>85852580probably, but I'm too autistic to go anywhere where I can't just shitpost and banter all day
>>85852643but you have your k-pop threads
>>85852580because you single handily ruined /gg/
>>85852718me? no you must have me confused with someone else
>>85852715I don't like kpopI don't like pop at all, as a matter of fact I don't even like /mu/, honestly. it's a shit board by any measure
>>85852779>>85852794i dont know what this is about. this is the first time i visit this general.
>>85848732So this is obviously a really simple loop of two chords and a bass line but still, feedback? Going to add vocals once I get it sorted out. https://vocaroo.com/i/s1vgGdAlmcTX

I’m selling all my guitars and buying 5 of the new Epiphone SG specials. Fuck the Les Paul, fuck the Gibson SG, fuck the Tele. Epiphone SG special VE with upgraded pickups and tuners is the guitar of Chads.
>>85853356You are a making mistake
>>85853386Says the virgin with his PRS custom 22
how do i get creative enough to make a whole damn song
>>85853829kill yourself my man
>>85853829By paying me to write it for you.
>>85853733i like kramer but how terrible. those inlays are horrific. and those guitars are chinese. same epiphone factory. sad!
>>85853042>>85853135is there anything genuinely wrong with offsets besides the hipster connotations?
>>85854064Nah, Jaguars are Chad guitars. Jazzmasters are good guitars but you just *know* that the fucker who goes to the guitar store and ignores every other option to pick out a Jazzmaster is a simpering virgin
>>85853874lmao you cant write to save your life
/gg/, how many chords do you know?
LMAO WHat did they do to larry's model he walks like a retard
>>85854064They were chosen as the official lgbt guitar of choice. Being seen as hipster is the last thing to worry about. The bridge design is legitimately trash btw.
>>85854324you have to be autistic to not know how to properly setup a jazzmaster/jaguar bridge
>>85854134Thats what you think
>>85854377I know how to. The people buying them now, do not. I don't need to remind you about the hordes of people complaining to Fender that the controls are too complicated. So they taped them off, and now Fender even makes models entirely without the switches.
>>85854343>still doesnt know what time zones are.
>>85854433>make niche guitar>gets popularized by homos and faggots alike>eventually falls into hands of people not interested by the niche but by the faggotry>complain guitar is too niche and not homo enough>make stripped down versions in pastel colors>niche retards reeAnd you are here.
>>85854433ah that's a good point, that was unnecessarily rude of me. personally I think the bridge rocking back and forth with the vibrato is infinitely better than having the strings scraping against a tune-o-matic. not sure if I just got lucky, but my jag stays in tune far better than my strat
Stop talking about fender. Buy Gibson.
>>85854527Lmfao sure thing blind lemon pledge. Because you have to be as dumb as furniture polish to not see this
>>85854546Peering around a corner and seeing Ghost Rider at night?
>>85854546This is a really confusing insult and that renders it useless
If I play every day will my brain eventually get addicted in the same way it is to porn, sugar, and soŷ?
>>85850399Congrats. My Highway One Jazz bass comes in tomorrow.
>>85854064No. Hipsters just used them for so long that they got popular and now tryhards hate on them. Jags are cool if you want something super bright and jangly. Jazzmasters sound like someone mad a strat fatter and 'clank'-ier.
>>85854064Nah I see the same bullshit spouted about Telecasters some of the time. Best thing to do is pick a guitar that looks good and sounds good to you and stop putting so much stock into the opinions of a general where MAYBE 1 in 5 can actually play guitar or bass.
>image size limit was set in 2004Then you get a snapchat cancerfile because the compression is pretty clean looking. Not even gonna re name it. How do you like my new amp /gg/
>>85855002Nice i was looking at those too bedore the latest marshalls came out. Hows it sound?
>mocking people for being virgins on 4chanFucking newfags get out
>>85855072T. Incel peasant. Real guitar players get laid. Maybe if you werent a skillet you would fuck thots too
>>85854998No, i mean you went all over the place with it. It’s a blind lemon joke, which, okay, fine, but then you said he’s dumb rather than blind. And then the whole “dumb as furniture polish” thing was just stupid and unfunny.Do better next time
>>85855190You just described why the joke went over your head. I dont have time to go in depths of the subtleties of comedy but youre dumb.
>>85855224It’s still not as funny as saying “you’re gay and you piss and shit all over the place”
>>85855253Thats not funny just vulgar and of low intelligence and immature.https://vocaroo.com/i/s0Rx8IsnJiYe
>>85855341Most people are fucking idiots, dude. Whats the point of a joke that most people aren’t going to get. Smarter jokes are objectively less funny than dumb jokes because of this reason
>>85855391Say that to norm macdonald or Mitch hedburg
>>85855437Oh come on. Mitch Hedberg’s jokes were so fucking retarded that they just looped back around to being genius.As for Norm MacDonald, there’s a hilarious clip of him where he just says “9/11” and then cracks up. Just because some of his jokes were clever doesn’t mean he was above lowbrow humour.Making a complicated pun doesn’t make your joke funny.
>>85855437The fact that you think they make "smart" jokes says a lot.
>>85854440LMFAOOOOO what do timezones have to do with your buyer’s remorse you fuggin headcase?
>>85855496Yes they are comedic geniuses i agree. I believe my joke was of the meta variety. The whole joke is i didnt call you blind. Fuck happy?
>>85855224>don’t have timeYou’ve been in this general for hours, stupid
>>85855527The fact you think they dont says more.
>>85855530Stop falling for shit b8
>come to /gg/ for guitar discussion>it's just an autistic argument between a retarded tripfag and a retarded non-tripfag
>>85855590If it helps, you’re retarded for coming to /gg/ to talk about guitars
>>85855561Yeah, that I'm smarter than them. Jesus man, did you really think that through?
Should i post a pic of r's drug addict mom?

>>85855954>the bar serves tacosLmfao, kids.Go to a real bar fuckhead where the drinks are strong and the women are loose. A dive bar as one may say. Guarantee youll find musicians there
>>85856408I hate musicians, I rarely tell faggots like you I play guitar when I’m out. And it is a dive bar. I’m still waiting on your pussy ass to post the link to that jam track so I can show you how real guitar players improv.
>>85856368Not if you drink
>>85856502Doesn’t matter, I’m cleaner than you are.
>>85856533I thought you were going to the bar. So you're a lying, dirty drunk.
>>85856482What are you gonna upload ripped audio from the bar? No fucking dive bar sells food. You dont know a divebar. Ill show you one.

LMFAO YOU AINT GOTTA LIE TO KICK IT LIL HOMIE
why would someone posting on an anonymous internet board stake their imaginary internet ego so heavily upon their preference in divebars?lmfao dude, go to your divebar then and scrape the bottle of the barrel for methed out whores and pretend that someone makes you better than anyone else ever. Like wow, this nobody is going to a shittier bar then me, they don't even have basic amenities, how envious I have become lmfaoI go to bars where nobody is smoking meth because their parents didn't ignore them and taught them self-respect. I have a bottle of whisky next to a bottle of whiskey on my shelf because I don't have to barter like some bum for shit I can just have because I provide for myself.how is this even something someone can have going on in their shit lives and think "oh man, when I brag about this on 4chan, these guys are gonna be so mad lmfao" Well, lmfao indeed
>>85856630It’s required by my state to sell food in bars you stupid fuck. I fucking hate Californians.
LMFAO IS THIS WHY YOU LIKE HIM? TO GIVE YOU HOPE THAT YOURE NOT A RETARD AND YOU WILL MAKE IT SOMEDAY LMFAO"Born in 1970 and raised in California, Frusciante dropped out of high school"
>>85856742who are you trying convince? me or you? you sound like a creep in denial about a lot of miserable things happening in your life
>>85856726>state has stupid laws because its poor>blame californiaLmfao you stupid retarded flyover. You're going to a shitty restaraunt nothing more. Ive been to shitty bars and high end bars and none serve food lmfao. Stupid hick.

>>85856782>famous Mexican intellect I live on the west coast in a major city stupid fuck, wrong again. I wasn’t blaming your state for anything I just hate how fucking dumb you faggots are.
why wouldn't a bar have food? people will stay longer and drink more, Jon Taffer's bars have fooddo these fools think they know better than Jon Taffer?
>>85856804you go to bars where you have to trade weed for whisky and coke to a methed out cuntheadcanons like the facts about yourself you bragged about itt loser
>>85856822Lmao you basically bought a relic’d amp because you’ve never actually played a show in your life
>>85856808>REEEE WHY DONT YOU KNOW ABOUT MY INSIGNIGICANT STATE AND ITS RETARDED LAWSkek>>85856810Food trucks exist and are strategically placed near bars.
Even more terrible news about the new Kramers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwLZL9ms1xEskip to 31 minutes in, the rep confirms these asian shitplanks are going to retail for over a grand or just a bit under. Even more alarming, the headstocks actually snapped on their way over from the factory.
>>85856853>too poor to travel Most single income families can’t travel lmao
>>85856829Lol i will. Someone got murdered in their a few years back. Dont be scared of fun stupid.>>85856850Relic'd means its not old but made to seem it. M8ne is actually older than you and i got it for a steal. I would have to be as dumb as you to have had passed it up.
>>85856861Only 80's metal fans care, and that's the worst music ever made, so nothing of value was lost.
>>85856885>in their nice spelling faggot
>>85856911Remember when I said you would call me roman when you didn’t have a comeback? I win you dumb faggot
>>85856853so the demand is there, and the service is there, but instead of having it at a location where it can be ordered simultaneously, you have to walk to a strategic location?here's a better strategy: have it in the fucking barthis doesn't even make sense, what's the fucking strategy in "leave our bar and go get food, and we'll hope you come back and buy more booze" what a dumb thing for an adult human to think and follow through with as a business plan>>85856885>Dont be scared of fundon't stake your life on fun, stupidyou mentally deprived idiot. You could die, and then no more fun ever again. No individual instance of fun is worth that risk.You don't have any thought processes, you spout platitudes like you have life all figured out, but none of this nonsense holds up.
>>85856896In their barstool*
>>85856932I really don’t care about your lies you dumb faggot lmao
How do I get good enough to play shit like Willie the Pimp /gg/?
>>85856920Huh? When did i ever say that?>>85856926I dont want to go to a restaraunt i want to go to a place that solely.focuses on alcohol and pleasing alcoholics. How do you not get that? If youre with women or faggots then you make a food stop.later.Ok be scared of everything and have fun like that. I have more figured out than you want me to.
>>85856956But we should care about yours? What did you order at your moms hous... Err i mean the bar. kek.
Post the trent pasta
>>85856962>I have more figured out than you want me to.I want you to figure out how to tie a noose, so apparently not.Also, you conveniently swapped perspectives from how it benefited the business to how it benefits you personally in your own irrelevant life because you had no point to make and you were called out. You are as transparent as Caitlyn Jenner, but I'm sure you'll figure out what that means B^)
>>85856962You’ve called me roman twice now you dumb faggot>>85856971
>>85857011wtf does that mean? he called you roman?
>>85856993Fun fact. I met caitlyn jenner.
>he got mad because I can buy beer and tacosImagine if he saw my guitars
>>85857011Exactly where did i call you by any name?
>>85857072Fun Fact: Most household items can be fashioned into a noose.
>>85857090Where exactly is you dad?
>>85857085I bet you had to trade a ton of weed to a meth head for those guitars
>>85857090When did you last talk to your father?
>>85857090Do you use metal music as an aggressive outlet for the way you feel about your absent father?
>>85857090How would your father feel if you saw behaving like this?
>>85857090Why doesn't your father love you or respect you?

GUITAR IS TURNING YOU GAY
At what point should I just give up playing music? I can't seem to write anything interesting. Nothing I write makes me proud.
>>85857622... and that's a good thing!
>tfw you have a Gibson and a dad
>>85857747keep writing and keep reflecting on it. also look at other music you really like and figure out what makes it good
>>85858972I like music that builds tension and climaxes with anxiety or bliss. That probably doesn't make any sense. Generally, the only stuff I can write involves open chords and barre/power chords. I can't write many interesting leads and all my simple chord songs just sound boring. Like, some of my favorite songs are drone songs, but I can't even do that right.
I’m having alot of fun learning 30+ parts from Radiohead songs
Which is an easier transition?Guitar -> Bass or Bass -> Guitar?
>>85860048I'd say guitar to bass is easier in terms of actually playing the instrument, but as far as musical skill translating, bass would be best to start with. Nothing is worse than a guitar player playing a bass like a guitar.
>>85860048guitar >bass obviously. it's the same shit minus 2 strings
