I get cramps in my fretting hand when playing barre and 5th chords. Anyone got any solutions?

Hendrix was SHIT!

If Hendrix was alive now he would get a chance to see me play and realise how shit he really was. I AM GOD. How anybody can even being nearly as good as me is stupid. Watch me play and bow to me. It's just as well Hendrix died or he would be embarrassed now. HIS STYLE WAS SHIT. Bum notes should not make legends.

If Hendrix was alive right now he would probrably be better than he was in 69 and you would be bobbin on his nob BOB!!!!!!

Re: Hendrix was SHIT!

Lets make this short and nice sweetpants. First of all, get rid of the name, its obviously a missed attempt at being funny. I'm only 18, and probably have the least mature sense of humor on the website, and even I don't think It's remoteley funny. You're obviously a degenerate who has unfortunatly failed in life, so somehow acting like a ravaging homosexual should make up for it. Your thought process is nothing less than just plain weird. So, you should get off your ass, which is probably quite sore from the frequent rogerings you receive up the poop chute, and go get A LIFE. By the way, if Hendrix were here, he would listen to you play, then take one foot and stick it in your mouth, take your other foor and cram it up your loose asshole, and take your guitar and knock you out with it. Stop wasting your time here, it would be better spent picking up other men of your kind.
Sincerely,
One of Jimi's devoted Fans

Re: Hendrix was SHIT!

I don't know what yahoo said Hendrix was shit ,but theguy has his head up his ass. Obviously this total shitfor brains does not know the first thing about music.
Hendrix was an orginal. He created a style that other are still trying to copy to this day. Many bands and guitar players took many of his playing technics. Many of Hendrix songs are still get air play. There are not too many guitar players that can say that. That title was only for a select few like Hendrix. Hedrix was way ahead of his time. Hendrix set the stage for many bands that followed.If you bothered to listen you would hear that.At least Hendrix had the balls to create a orginal song and was not a wannabee like alot of shit bands you have today. Wake up asshole and listen to the music and style that Hendrix played. You will hear a orginality that was truly his own.

Re: Hendrix was SHIT!

It is quite obvious you do not have the brains that god gave you. No self repsecting guitar player has ever said Hendrix was shit. If anything Hendrix style was something to imulate. Hendrix started a music revoultion. Something you could never even come close too. Even if you tried .That is especially true if you stopped yanking your meat. Does you music get copied by many bands that went on to big stardom, I think not. Most people probably throw shit at you when you make a very crude attempt at guitar playing. I use the term loosely asshole. So, take your brains out of your asshole ,asshole and put them back into your head. No and not the one with the small head. IF YOU WERE SMART and it is quite obvious that you are not you would listen to Hendrix and realize that he is the master of guitar playing.

I want to play power chords like the pros, PLEASE help

I can play 5th chords perfectly, but I have to keep my hand at the
strings and use my wrist. I want to be able to play in and up and
down movement like my heros, Blink 182, Green day and so forth.
PLEASE HELP!

Re: I want to play power chords like the pros, PLEASE help

Hey man,
This is going to sound really awful, but you have to keep practising, it's the only way to play like a pro. I don't think there is any secret or magic word I could tell you that could solve your problem, except not to give up, and to practise untill it hurts. If you are playing diads, or two note power chords, try out different ways of choking any strings you aren't playing. Think about how much pressure you really need to hold down a chord, making your life a little easier. Are you using enough distortion?! :-)
Don't give up buddy, you'll get there!

Re: Ace Frehley Doll

If it's the original Mego version from the 70's you should sell it on Ebay. You might get $100 if it's in really good condition. If you have the original box that's even better.

ibanez "vai models"

are these rock guitars as good quality as my gibson les paul standard and if so, do they hold there value as much

Re: ibanez "vai models"

Quality is a debateable issue. Ibanez are made in Japan, while Gibsons are made in the USA. Most people believe that USA instruments are better than imports. I think your JEM is a 7 string, right? That's a whole different animal. The value of the real JEMs is pretty high from what I have seen. Les Pauls cost more and hold their value- in the 2,000 -$3,000 range. JEMS are around a grand. Both hold their respective values pretty well. I have owned Gibson and Ibanez, and would take a high-end Ibanez over a Gibson. But only a high-end Ibanez (I would consider the JEM high end).

: are these rock guitars as good quality as my gibson les paul standard and if so, do they hold there value as much

Re: ibanez "vai models"

only top o the line ,i mean the best ,becuse no jap guitar can really hang with a nice les paul. but if it was a nice brand new gem or a les paul standard with no frills i would have to take the gem just because i want a floyd rose.

Neil Young

Just watched a Neil Young concert on Directv. What am I missing? This guy is touted as some form of superstar, yet he plays guitar worse than an amateur and his entire performance is sloppy. His guitar solos are completely uninspired, mostly single notes that he strums as hard as he can, sometimes breaking strings. When he plays these solos, he dances around like a maniac, really believing he is playing inspired licks, yet if you take away all his theatrics and just listen to the notes, he's basically playing crap. Is it just me, or has this guy put one over on the music industry?

Re: Neil Young

Jimmi, we're looking for some intelligent discussion here. If you disagree with someone, that's quite all right. But you don't have to resort to insults to get your point across. Want to try again?

Re: Neil Young

bog off you miserable prat!

OK, you made your point, you don't like Neil Young....... nothing new! Me, I've been a fan of him since 1972 or so, and I allways seem to meet two sorts of people: those who love his voice, and others that hate him...... it's very personal I guess, nothing you can do about it..... the same with his guitar playing, technical spoken it is not very impressive, I agree, but if you can't hear the FEEL he's putting in his solo's, thaen there must be something wrong with your ears.... personaaly I hate the guys who can play 30 notes in a second and make the guitar sound so icecold..... there is allways this contradiction between technique and feeling, and there are not much guitarists who can make the golden road between them

Re: Neil Young

It's just you.

Re: Neil Young

Its just you.!!Neil is great,hes just having fun.listen to some of his music sometime ,hope you change your mind.Kind of sad you feel that way,everyones entitled to there own opinion.

all
