A very unusual chord, but a chord nonetheless.

Nothing beats the 'Sunday' double powerchord (ie two stacked 5ths).

Try it on piano.

the first one is i guess a G9 with a major 7th in the bass.
2nd one E7 first inversion with a neighboring tone or something like that, like the c# doesnt really belong there....
so yeah lots of inversions

~Jeremy~

From what I've learnt a chord has at least three notes, so this is just a double stop EDIT: with dead notes.

I was going to point this out, but I thought you were taking the piss.

The greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix, was self-taught.

You're a natural born guitar player. I may be as well, as I used to know someone who would spend hours playing on his electric guitar, and one day I asked him if I could have a go on it. All I did was strum it with my right hand, whilst moving my left hand up and down the neck of the guitar, randomly pressing down on some of the strings. The guy looked amazed and asked if I ever played the guitar before. When I told him I hadn't, he gave me a look of disbelief.

I've always found whole-tone scales a bastard to work with. It either sounds like Messiaen or it sounds like shit (usually the latter); I never really know where to intervallically (I suppose this is my own fault for being so very early music).

Guitar is a very simple instrument to pick up and play without having any real knowledge of it what so ever if you think about it, but yet at the same time there is a LOT to guitar..... It all depends on how much you want to really know what you're playing.

In middle school we had guitar classes as an elective... One of the few states in the nation to do so. I got to take free guitar classes for two years. We didn't learn anything super advanced (Even in advanced guitar), but I definitely learned some common knowledge and more know-how.

Our school had a guitar class in high school, I took it my sophmore year. We learned really next to nothing, except I guess how to read tabs. We mostly learned stuff like how to play the national anthem. There wasn't really a lesson plan. It was kind of interesting though at the time, I was just learning how to play and there were all these other guys/girls around so I got to hear alot of different styles. It ended up not really being that interesting actually. Everyone pretty much only took to learning how to play Crazy Train or Sweet Home Alabama.

Guitar is probably one of the easier instruments to make sound halfway neat, as long as you're just a little inventive, and there are alot of levels to that quality. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So that's neat.

Really? If you honestly can play (and it's not just ego :P ) I heavily advise learning your music theory until you can bring it all up to memory. It may seem pointless, but I thought the same (I play piano) until I decided to learn theory and as I learnt it I noticed a dramatic difference in how well I could play as you don't have to memorise the notes as you can just remember what key you're playing it in and relate to that
