how come I can move certain chords for one or two frets and they still make a legit sound? It's called sliding I know that, but why does it work? You've literally changed every note in a chord and it still works. (wanting to play blues, sliding was introduced to me there)

How far would you drive for the guitar/ bass you've been searched for, and the price is right. Hour? 2 hour? I found my next bass.... out of state... ~3 hours away.
>>
>>62049020
Well, it makes a whole other chord. Like a standard F major chord is the exact same shape as your standard E major chord, and if you move the barre up to the 3rd fret you get a G major

>>
>>62049020
assuming you're talking about open chords, it's simply because there are so many different chords and ways to make those chords. As long as the notes all fit on the same scale, you've got a chord in there. Generally the added rule is to not have 2 notes s half step apart, though you cab break that rule too.

>>62048948
Yeah original Hyperion run. I really love them, might grab another one someday to have a backup.

I've only DIY'd a Fuzz Factory as well, which was pretty easy, but that was at least....7 years ago and I had help at the time from a friends dad who liked electronics as well. He basically taught me how to solder while I was doing that.

>>62048905

Also I dunno, I guess it's low quality but at that price most basses arent going to be perfect. His has stayed stable for 7 years minus one setup he got about 3 years ago for some fret buzzing.

I live in Chicago and there are a few bands like Bassel and the Supernaturals or Hip Trip that are made up of guys I went to university with that were music majors; they seem to like what they do and play some fun, interesting music. (Gramps the Vamp is another band to check out. In fact, most of these bands have members that play in each others' groups and have been playing together for years.)

Otherwise, I can't recommend BADBADNOTGOOD highly enough. They're a young (I think all around 25 years old now) jazz/fusion trio from Toronto that take a lot of cues from hip hop. They recently did a collaboration with Ghostface Killah called "Sour Soul" and the instrumentals on it are great.

I've also really been digging on Kamasi Washington's debut album, which features a lot of young (20/30-something) jazz musicians.

I think the reason you don't see a ton of prominent jazz musicians that are celebrated the ways guys like Davis, Parker, Coltrane, and Jaco were back in the day is because the focus in contemporary jazz is shifting from soloing to composition. Washington and BBNG's works are particularly indicative of this shift.

Beginner here. Looking into buying a bass. I've literally never picked up an instrument, but when my friend let me borrow his for a bit I got into it. Had to return it later. My dad has a fretless bass. Is it worth it to go out and buy a bass, or should I try to learn with the fret less?
>>
>>62054964
I don't see any harm with learning on the fretless. You may struggle more in the beginning without frets to define the fretboard for you but learning correct intonation while relying on position playing will really develop your ear well. Nothing worse than when a guy thinks he can just jump from a fretted to a fretless bass and every other note is a semitone off.

The bass player in my band (we play prog rock) uses a fretless exclusively and his intonation is effortless. I say go for it.

>>
>>62055142
I don't know if I can be much help desu. I'm only incidentally a bass player, as in I only play if there's one at band practice or a jam session since I don't have one of my own.

But if it makes you feel any better I think most musicians feel like they are "jumping without a parachute" when they start. I picked up guitar because I wanted to play Green Day songs in a band and their music might as well have been astrophysics for all I knew about playing guitar when I started. Now I can improvise over jazz changes and play Guthrie Govan licks. Don't let the learning process intimidate you. Just practice as often as you can, and look up whatever you don't understand online. There's WAY more information about fretless bass technique alone, from beginner to advanced levels, on YouTube than you could probably ever want to know.

Since you have a good bass to play already. Try picking up a shitty bass from a pawn shop and use it to learn songs on/get basic muscle memory of where the frets are or learn a few notes at a time on it and switch to the fret less and match the sounds? Maybe?

Hell I dunno I'm a beginner too. But that's how I would approach it.

I'd go with the Pacifica. The Affinity series are truly garbage. That being said, if you're willing to invest a bit more into a Classic Vibe or Vintage Modified model from Squier you'll have a quality instrument that you can gig and record with. I bought my Squier 51 back in 2005 and I still use it. It's not my main guitar anymore but I used to gig with it and used it to cut leads in the studio.

It's all valve. I'm really considering dropping $180 for the micro dark terror by orange and getting an orange 2x12 cab. I'm not sure if I could justify spending $650 on the regular dark terror.

I currently only own two bassed. CIJ Fender Jazz (some kind of 60s reissue), and my first bass which is a cheapo ESP LTD B-50. I had a few others over the years but ended up hating them and sold them, like the Lace Helix I had for a while. Don't know what I was thinking with that one. I also had a CIJ Fender Precision, but no matter what I did, I could never get it set up properly, and it always felt shit to play. So I gave it to my brother who plays gigs with it somehow.

I also gave him my big old 400w solid state amp made by some Australian company, and a crappy 4x10. I currently only have a little David Eden and no cab whatsoever. Just playing through headphones and computer like a fag.

How many times, for those that have gone through pro recording; you're trying to lay down your part but keep fucking it up, and the singer or someone else keeps hounding you? I kicked a singer out of the room because he kept giving shit to his nervous as fuck guitar player. Once the singer was out of the room, the guitar player layed down his solo perfect. I guess what Im saying is, leave a motherfucker alone to do his shit. Singers arent even paying attention to whats going on while their singing. My boss gave me shit for kicking out the guy paying, but it worked out in the end for everyone.

I don't really think it's fair to lump a six string in with those ten string monstrosities though.

I'm sure we can all agree that (in the right hands) two extra strings on a bass could be very well used. I just wanted to see if there was any legitimate reason for a ten string to exist or if it was just needless faggotry.

Depends - If they're both in a shop, get the cheaper one as it'll have some sort of warranty attached to it.

If the 2nd hand one is a private sale, I'd say the extra 20 for peace of mind (warranty etc) is probably worth it.

Dunno desu, Stingray or a jazz bass like Marcus Miller
6 years although the past 2 I have barely played. Last year I dunno, just didn't play much, and this year I got a Roland synth and I've been playing that. Still good though, just not as fast, not too rusty.
Stingray and jazz bass as I said, think it's a 75 jazz bass.
Flea, Larry Graham, Marcus Miller, Mark King.
Nah

so, I've been playing with a basic riff and built a bunch of parts off of it, but it's hard to put them together. The riff is a bit unusual. I don't think of fits onto the chords I'm prescribing it. I like the roots being where they are but the last 2 measures confuse me. I'll try to tab it out. The roots are A G F E.
A---------7--3---------2--3--------2--3----------2--3
E--5--5---------3--3---------1--1--------0--0--------

Looks like Am, Gmaj +4 or whatever or just using the 4 as the fifth for the next chord, F with b5 as passing tone, E the same.

You could play this easier with open A string and second fret D string so you don't have to move position.

Made some shots: http://imgur.com/a/kMLgs

Measured the string height on fret12 for E, exactly 2mm. But I am getting fret buzz, is it my fault? Tried to record it, but my phone's mic sucks.

Sound (is 0:08 a fret buzz?)

>>62057574
Fret buzz is normal for most guitars man.
>>
>>62057353
With the b on the f and the c on the E, how do these notes affect things? If they are simply off notes, how should they be felt with when multiple instruments are played? it seems like if the guitar is playing Fmaj and the bass plays F F B C or F F C B, the dissonance would be pretty strong. I know that's allowed, but what are some ways to mitigate it?
>>
>>62057680
this, you can make any guitar buzz if you play hard enough. If you get buzz in only a few spots you need fret leveling, if you get buzz on a whole section of the neck you have setup issues.
>>
>>62057574
Is the buzz above the fret pressed(sympathetic) or below? If it's above it's technique. Where does it buzz? Only one string, one fret, or all. And take a pic closer to the headstock and then the whole neck so I can see the relief.
>>
>>62057820
Only the low E buzzes. Made a pic where I hold down a fret, I rec.d the sound that way.

It is totally possible that I am strumming too hard to be honest.

Oh I misread the E chord, it goes root, fifth, flat 6.

It's more like you're playing the same chord in the last three measures but lowering the bass note so it's like a slash chords.Gmaj, Gmaj/F, Gmaj/E or something

Those are fine in my book. I used to have a bit of bias against 7 string guitars but I later realized it was pretty hypocritical given that I play a 5 string bass. That said, even though I started on a 5 which is still my bass, I've been drooling at pic related for a long time. The only reason GAS hasn't won over me is because I can't afford it right now.

My guitarist does most of the writing, but I can just tell you that you need to keep things rhythmically complex and interesting, that's the biggest part. Other than that, the minor scale and all of its variations, along with the diatonic scale, are your friends.

Fair enough

A simple insult isn't an ad hominem, I didn't use it as an argument. And I'm far from a manlet. That said, if your 5th string is floppy it's not because it's a 5th string, it's because it's not thick enough for the scale.

That may be where I'm doing something wrong, I'll ask my drummer friends for some more complex drum patterns.
I hate chugging though, the best breakdowns are the ones with a little bit of spicy playing, like in Flesh and the power it holds. I'm looking to write some stuff more similar to Necrophagist/Obscura anyway so I doubt I'll do breakdowns.

kek, I can't tell if that faggot is serious or not yet. On top of that, he doesn't just talk about range, the faggot says guitars are "inferior" because the intonation isn't perfect. I mean, give me a break, only an autist would care about that shit. It probably even sounds even less organic because of the perfect intonation.
>>
>>62059771
Coming up with complex rhythms really takes a lot of practice and planning. It did for me, at least. Try just coming up with cool shit my taping your hands on your knees when you're away from the instrument, then put notes to it when you pick it up again.

Chugs have their use over wild leads and stuff, the sort of thing that's difficult for a drummer to lock on to. It sounds pretty groovy imo. The Faceless do it a lot, and they do a good job of it
Breakdowns are dumb tho

because there's more than one diatonic scale

a diatonic scale or mode is 7 notes, 5 whole steps and two half steps

There's a difference between an ad hominem and an insult based on an assumption. Which was based on the fact you complained about the 5th string being floppy, which shouldn't happen unless you were playing a short scale bass.

calling a diminished scale 'brutal' is a pretty juvenile way to describe it

tense is a better description. django reinhardt uses diminished and half diminished runs all over his music and none of it can be described as brutal, tense yes, but not brutal

>>62060242
maybe a riff can be brutal but no way a scale in itself can be brutal. That's just extrapolating too far.

I think you meant retarded, and it's a tie.
>>
>>62060499
The latter. There's nothing wrong when listening to a genre you don't like because you want to study and take some of their technique to apply them somewhere else, but not listening to something you like purely to appear as "better" is pretentious.
>>
>>62060499
not listening to metal even though you like it is more pretentious i guess. if you like it, you like it, and that's kind of it.

i personally have no interest in metal, i find it all very lame. i don't do this, but at best i would only listen to and use metal for technical exercises.

Ok, hear me out.

I agree, almost all ERB/ERG players are faggots just trying to look cool. But look at a bassist like Thundercat or a guitarist like Tosin Abasi. They have a talent or a greatly aquired skill, and both of them can groove really well. Idk about dic size, but they are both black so you do the math. What I'm getting at is that ERG's like in your pic are the heigh of faggotry, but some people can use them pretty well.

Nothing wrong with five strings, unless it's a really shitty cheap one where the B string flops around and sounds like mud. It's worth having the low B just so you have a D note lower than D2. You can't really play a proper root note for a D chord otherwise, and I always find myself wanting that low D

New to guitar here. I've been practising using a cheapo guitar and haven't been having problems until I recently hit the e chord. My fingers on the 2nd fret can play OK, its the pointer finger on the first fret that I'm having extremely hard problem playing, there is buzzing no matter how close I am to the fret, I literally have to press extremely hard down for the note to register, is it me or the guitar? I don't have this problem with the d or a chord.

New to guitar here, I know a guy who's actually pretty alright with a guitar who's been explaining different chords and musical terms to me. He says that if I want to play rock, all I need to know is power chords.
I don't know more than him but that doesn't sound right, do I really just need power chords /gg/?
>>
>>62063229
well you can get through a lot with just power chords but i dont know why you would want to stop there

Maybe if you want to play punk or slam death. Using major, minor and even augmented/diminished chords will give a lot more flavour to your playing

power chords are the minimum. Yes to play rock all you need is power chords, as in to play a few rock songs. You can't play all rock songs. I say the same thing to people I teach, I think it emphasizes that even amateur music is still "real" music.

>I'm totally dumbfounded at how different chords=Different genres of music.
Your quads tell how right you are.
You can use almost everything everywhere
>>
>>62063333
you can get through a song by playing a simpler version of a song. Similarly, instead of playing full chords you can play power chord versions, which are partial versions of the full chord. Look at a picture of an open E chord online. Compare it to an E power chord. Also, as the guy teaching you this stuff.

This is so wrong, it'll only work if they're 1-3-5 triads,
>>
>>62063480
that's actually not even chromatic

chromatic is octave/12 semitones, this is quarter-tones
>>
>>62063333
certain chords typically lend themselves to different genres. you'll recognize how certain chords/progressions "sound" jazzy, for instance. it's not really a rule, though. like 80/20.

you'll figure this out as you learn.

How practical would it be to make side money as a musician?

>>
>>62063523
well okay then semi chromatic
>>
>>62063418
He was telling me what octave chords were because I asked about black metal, he said that octave chords are what makes black metal black metal, and if you don't play black metal with octave chords it's not going to sound like black metal. So that's not fundamentally true?
>>
>>62063385
>>62063523
Why does every time someone does something microtonal it sounds just unmusical ?
That's just my judgment but it always seem they go for the really small intervals, which gets too close to a minor second and doesn't sound quite right
>>
>>62063484
You can do it with an chord that includes the root and 5th. So pretty much any chord. Power chords don't include the 3rd which makes the chord major or minor.

>she's my ex

That's absolutely fucking wrong.
Take this for exemple.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tW4AlW2n5A
First riff is just a minor melody with the E string droning about, an octave, 9th and 10th interval.
Then's comes a minor A chord.
What comes after is just a bunch of minor chords - again - being moved around the neck.
I'm too lazy to analyze the rest of the song but black metal is mostly minor, although you can use atonal melodies for a more chaotic effect.
I think there's even a nargaroth track that's in major.

>>62063679
No I don't think that's the problem, I'm usually open minded. But I'm not too versed into microtonal music so I haven't got too much exemples.

>>62063615
A Sus chord loses all its meaning if you turn it into a power chord.
>>
>>62063797
>>62063679

I don't know what you're getting at with this power chord thing. A major chord loses its meaning too, but that substitution works. Just like you could just play the root note and nothing else, there is incomplete information. I just don't know why you are correcting me.

>>62064439
Okay, you may need to adjust the height of that particular string slightly. You may even need to adjust the truss rod.

If you bought a used guitar then the worst case scenario is that it has worn frets but you'd probably have buzzing elsewhere if that were the case.

Start by raising the saddles (bit by the bridge that the strings rest on) of that string by a half turn of the screws and retune before checking for buzz again.
