Acoustic Guitar Notes: The Pentatonic Scale ? A, Am, D, Dm Whats The Difference And Why ?

This is it, the “one-off” custom-built especially for Gobel by Gibson, with Serial Number 27318, which the Gibson archive dates to March 20, 1958 and hand-notes “Lonesome George Gobel Spec.” The Gibson label inside this guitar notes the serial number and “L5 C- Special” as model. The guitar is slightly thicker (2 5/8 in.) than the production model and has a standard L-5 25 1/2 inch scale to the production model’s 24 3/4 inches. This instrument is identified and pictured on page sixty-six of Adrian Ingram’s The Gibson L.5, which provides the entire history of this guitar. This L-5C “Special” has a 17 inch wide body, weighs just 4.90 lbs and has a nut width of 1 11/16 inches. Carved spruce top, highly figured curly maple back and sides, three-piece curly maple neck, and bound ebony fretboard with 20 jumbo frets and inlaid pearl block position markers. Individual Kluson Sealfast tuners with bell-shaped metal buttons. Tortoiseshell pickguard with five-ply binding. Rosewood bridge with pre-set compensating saddle on rosewood base and L-5 trapeze tailpiece. The oval orange label visible through the bass ‘f’ hole has the model designation as “L5 – C – Special” written in black ink and the serial number “A 27318″ (March 1958) stamped in black. Inside the treble ‘f’ hole is the FON (factory order number) “T 3885 1″ stamped in black. All hardware gold-plated. This guitar is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. The unique “Lonesome George’s wear marks, due to his style of playing

I guess I am struggling with the pentatonic scale. What the difference for instance the between Dm Pent. D Pent. Am Pent etc etc, I can’t find anything that explains this other than to just show me the Am version top be honest.

So the A major Pentatonic starts on the route a note on the E string 5th fret, so what the Em and where does it starts?

I am learning guitar, and at the moment the acoustic version of Clapton’s Layla.

Now I know that the basic chord structure is Dm Bd C Dm, and I want to solo over that (beyond the tabs solo form the live recording for MTV), should I be using the Dm Blues scales and if so whats the difference between that and say the D Pentatonic scale?

Some guidance would be fantastic please :0)

Acoustic Guitar Notes: (For Boys!) Which One Would You Rather Go Out With? ?

FULL COURSE, TAB, JAM TRACKS: More acoustic guitar lessons: TF on Twitter – TF on Facebook – Take your first 5 minutes of playing (or singing or ‘whatever;) and play things you’ve NEVER played before. Break free of your ruts and musical habits! Refer to your tool kit for the ’12 Steps to Exploring Open Tunings.’ Use your ‘Tuning Guide’ for the C2 tuning. When tapping a ‘chord’ (6:30) be sure to ‘tap’ the open strings first, then hammer on the actual chord notes with left hand. You may find that you can employ some of the open strings as you play melody lines or scales – and get some really cool riffs that would be impossible to do in a standard tuning. Follow your bliss! Let yourself follow the sounds, rhythms or body movements that you like – again NO RULES here!

(Boys) Who would you rather go out with? ?
Girl 1 – She is multi talented (plays bass guitar, piano, drums and electric/acoustic guitar.

She loves breakdancing. A very athletic sporty girl (but not muscly the only muscle she has is her calf muscle from all that 100m running)

She is slim and curvy. She has the whitest teeth ever! and the best smile. The best thing is that she has the most flawless skin ever (natural) so natural that she doesnt need makeup.

When shes at home she is writting love poems (sensitive girl) :) loves reading, playing on her brothers ps2 (call of the duty 4!!) lol.

Personality- Funny,charming,fun to be with and weird :) lol

Girl 2- This girl is brilliant at drawing, loves to play the piano or keyboard (whats the difference?!)

She is flexible! Loves to sing. She has one of the most angelic voice ever! Its like when she sings your heart just melts. She is a lovable person and funny as well. She loves music art and graphics! (also loves chocolate!)

She has nice brown eyes when she takes off her glasses and she looks different. Shes not that sporty but she is the the best bowler in rounders or baseball. She has a really nice figure but not muscles.

Personality- quirky, funny, lovable,

Which one? pick!

Note that these girls are best friends lol! and they are not jealous about each other! they even say compliments to each other!Im niether girl 1 or girl 2. These girls are in my class and just wondering which boys would rather go out with. Just saying to let you guys know πŸ˜‰

Acoustic Guitar Notes: My Electric Guitar Sounds Odd?

Go to for my latest videos. Click the little “see all” (below video thumbnails) to see all the videos. Lyrics and some chords at bottom of this video description :) If you cut and paste them into your word processor/editor it may line the chords up a little better over the lyrics. “Sweet Home Alabama” is a song by Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd that first appeared in 1974 on their second album, Second Helping. β€’ It reached #8 on the US charts in 1974, and was the band’s second hit single. Creation and recording At a band practice shortly after bassist Ed King had switched to guitar, King heard fellow guitarist Gary Rossington playing a guitar riff that inspired him (in fact, this riff is still heard in the final version of the song and is played during the verses as a counterpoint to the main D-C+9-G chord progression). In interviews, Ed King has said that, during the night following the practice session, the chords and two main guitar solos came to him in a dream, note for note. King then introduced the song to the band the next day. The famous “Turn it up” line uttered by Ronnie Van Zant in the beginning was not intended to be in the song. Van Zant was just asking producer Al Kooper and engineer Rodney Mills to turn up the volume in his headphones so that he could hear the track better. There is a semi-hidden vocal line in the second verse after the “Well, I heard Mr. Young sing about her” line. In the left channel, you can hear the

Thankyou in advance

Acoustic Guitar Notes: Buying A Good Basic Guitar?

I’m going to start guitar lessons but my current guitar is equivalent to a ‘Fisher Price My First Guitar’ and so don’t want to take it to lessons with me – thus, I want a new guitar that is not too expensive.

I think an electro-acoustic would be best at the moment, but I don’t know what to look for in a ‘good’ [basic] guitar – can anyone give any suggestions?

Note : I play left-handed, so I’d either need a left-handed guitar which tend to be expensive and hard to get a hold of, or of course better still would be a guitar I can re-string to play left-handed.

Acoustic Guitar Notes: Starting Guitar, Restarting.?

Okay, From the age of about 8, I’ve been playing guitar. Its one of those starter acoustics with three steel strings and three nylon. I played up to grade one standard, but missed the exam :( Im 14 now and havent played for about a year. I have never played a chord, just little notes. I want to restart now. Should I jump to electric, or by another cheapish acoustic for a while, to brush up on my skills etc, then move to electric?

I have a standard clip on capo. I slip it over and I play a G chord (for example) and it makes the high E sound gross! Like very tinny and high pitched and basically so I can’t hear the rest of my note. Why? Can I prevent this? It’s annoying me… and I need to use my acoustic soon!

Acoustic Guitar Notes: How Can I Get My Fingers To Move Fast On My Guitar?

So my younger sister just started playing acoustic guitar. She tries, she really does. All day and night all I hear is her trying to play, Can’t Be Tamed, by Miley Cyrus, let’s say, I just hear, “(weird noise) For………………..those (dink…………………….. dank……………… DUNK…………. DOM).” and then an “UGH!!! I CAN’T DO THIS!”

Well, she just basically started yesterday, and she has one note down-pat. And a few others as well. But she can’t get her hands to move fast enough from string to string. And if she does go fast she either a) presses down on the wrong strings or b) her fingers are just moving really quickly off the strings trying to find the chords. She needs at least 4 seconds between every chord to get her fingers to the right chord. And don’t even MENTION sliding up and down the frets. She has to count every fret to make sure she has it and…ugh, my gosh. That’s when she starts getting frustrated and saying “I CAN’T DO THIS!!!”

She’s 12.

How can she get her fingers moving faster up and down frets without counting them and how can she get her fingers move faster to each chord? Also, she has a habit of always looking at her fingers while she plays. She also sings, and when she looks at her fingers, its really hard to hear her sing. So how can she get out of that habit.

Again, she just started YESTERDAY and is getting super simple chords off of a website.

PLEASE, help her. Help ME! I’m so tired of the screaming, “UGH!!!” and the “dink, dank, dunk” of the wrong chords and I’d like to see my sister actually happy. So please help! Remember, y’all. Best answer gets 10 points! Woo…

And before I get a hundred zillion questions about it, that sister is NOT me. Okay? People never seem to get that! I’m almost 16 people! Not 12! So if you mention or ask about it, even if your answer is easily the best one, I’m not gonna pick it. Thanks!

Acoustic Guitar Notes: How Do I Keep My Guitar Playing Sharp During Holiday.?


So I’m on holiday, and because of family, my return home has been delayed four – five extra months. I’ve been teaching myself electric and acoustic guitar for three years, but last year I started taking lessons so I’ve got it all done now. my biggest fear is that I’ll come home to play my Fender, and my fingers wont make the same shapes they once could. I dont think I’ll ever forget where the notes are or the names of the chords, but I’m afraid my playing will become sloppy again, and it wont feel natural.
So what I’m asking for is advice. What should I do? Would it be worth it to buy a cheap guitar, or will there be no probably at all when I return home?
Thanks for reading.

Acoustic Guitar Notes: My Electric Guitar Buzzes? Keywords Music sad Guitar Songwriting website acoustic guitar tabs lessons articles easy guitar tabs acoustic guitar guitar hero songs free guitar lessons guitar notes guitar solo guitar tablature easy guitar songs free guitar…

Hi i recently brought a fender mexican strat and i notice i sometimes get a bit of buzz. Sometimes it is down to bad technique particularly when playing fast. however on barre chords and most 6th string notes on the 1st second or 3rd fret i get buzz on the 6th string. On F barre chord this is very annoying and it is not noticable when strumming but with fingerstyle or pick and strum it would be. Also on some of the lower strings i get buzz when they are picked hardly. I wanted to know if anyone knowsd what this could be. The action is quite low the strings are about 6 weeks old and i practice for about an hour and a half a day. I was thinking of getting a set up and changing the strings. I do not think on the 6th string it is bad technique as on my acoustic guitar i can play F barre chord without the 6th string buzzing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.thanks
sorry can i just add i have had it for 2 months. Also you say mexican strats are not the best but they are not bad. I can’t exactly afford a american strat. And also please helpful replies not throw it in the gutter. Many people get frety buzz and it can be due to something like low action which is easily adjustable.

Easiest guitar question ever? Haven’t played in 5 years?

Ok, well I have forgotten absolutely everything, but YouTube helping me there πŸ˜€
I’m actually quite proud of myself- after 5 minutes I’ve learn how to play the beginning notes of What Went Wrong (Blink-182).. don’t laugh, if you know the song you’ll know how simple it is, but for someone who hasn;t touched a guitar in 5 years I’m quite proud!

I have a question though, and I don’t mean to sound stupid when I ask πŸ˜›
I have an acoustic guitar, if that makes a difference..

But you know when you play?
Well, when I play, and I’m holding the string down onto the neck of the guitar and i pluck the string, sometimes it doesn’t work? Like it doesn’t vibrate and it doesn’t cause much sound. How do I change that? It’s mainly when I use my third finger (seeing as with What Went Wrong you need the 3 riffs one after the other).

Is there are particular place in the fret you need to hold down the strings?
Ahaha yeah, I thought SOMEONE might find it funny πŸ˜›
For the record, turns out I haven’t played for 7 years!
I was 7 when I started playing, I’m 14 now XD
When I played, we only learnt to pluck strings… and then my music teacher got pregnant and after she had the baby she gave up the job :/

What’s a really good website that can help me teach myself guitar?

I’d like to know the basics, really. How to play chords, good techniques, etc.
Preferably somewhere free, and somewhere that I don’t have to buy a book or anything.
I can hardly play guitar at all, but have an electro-acoustic and amp.
However, I CAN play the piano so can read music!
Really want to know how the notes relate to the strings on the guitar so I can understand it better and be able to compare it with piano.
Thanks very much!

What is the title of this acoustic chart song ?2008/9?….?

Tweet to Gavin DeGraw! Subscribe to Aislinn! I don’t even remember why I began talking with Aislinn a few months ago, but I’m definitely glad I did. She’s an amazingly talented artist from Ireland. She plays piano and writes her own songs! I heard this awesome new Gavin DeGraw song and I knew I had to pull out all the stops. I played piano and guitar and I also created the drums using FL Studio. The ending part is an original freestyle I added to make the song more my own. After I finished recording I messaged Aislinn and luckily she agreed to sing! After she becomes famous hopefully she’ll still remember me lol :) Follow me on Facebook! My original music on iTunes!
