Learning guitar

So im not taking lessons or anything. Ive been a drummer for a while so ive been around guitars for some time. recently i bought an electric guitar an amp. I just don tkno what i need to learn. Ive been learning chords but thats it. I tried learning scales but i dont know how to apply them. I just really don know what im doing. Any advice is appreciated

You use scales to solo over chord progressions, all scales come from the one main scale which is Major one. Learn what makes up a scale what chords it consist what mood it invokes, learning guitar isn't really difficult, but mastering it can take quite a while and grasping theory can be quite confusing. To build technical skill you just do the same shit over and over that's about it really

If you want to play grunge/post rock/noise rock/punk/post punk

You really only need to learn common chords, power chords, youll mainly have to focus on the rhythms you play with these basic elements. There really isnt much to an album like Spiderland for example, but the way they use such basic methods is insane. You can find tabs for somgs on "songsterr". Some albums for inspiration:

Nirvana - Bleach
Slint - Spiderland
Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
Melvins - Houdini
Godspeed you! Black Emperor - F#A# infinity
Sun Kil Moon - Benji
Wavves - Wavves
Acdc - powerage
Fugazi - Repeater

Practice scales and chord changes with a metronome. Set that bastard around 40bpm. When you want to play at 80bpm, keep it on 40. This ensures you don't learn to use the metronome as a crutch.

Don't learn everything with shapes, it'll fuck you up later on. Learn the formulae for chords and scales. You'll be able to play any voicing of a chord, not just one voicing that might not be suitable for what you're trying to do. Learning theory will also let you write more intricate arrangements, to write for a string section, or to instantly know how to get that sound that's in your head.

You don't have good technique, so you can't teach yourself good technique. Don't practice bad habits, go blow a conservatory grad and get them to make sure you're not teaching yourself some whack shit. Good technique gives you good control over the instrument, the inverse is true. You won't miraculously develop good technique by fumbling around.

What the fuck type of advice is this, even? "Hey bro, you should just be hell lazy and limit your creativity." If you only know power chords, 4 barre chord shapes, and you can't play a single scale... well, that means you have a handful of things with which to express yourself.

Don't be a shit guitarist, man, you'll hate yourself for it. And so will everybody else.

Look up for rocksmith 2014

It's a great way to learn guitar, you can download custom songs too (they're free).

A person with intelligence of half-dead monkey can go on youtube and search for technique or try to imitate good technically proficient players. or just go to /gg/ and read Guthries book.

>Now go and blow conservatory grad
