Index, middle, little finger. I forced myself to use my little finger as much as possible when I was beginning and I'm glad I did. Gilbert has said, elsewhere that he got into this habit almost by mistake and simply feels comfortable with it now and that it does have its advantages. http://icanhasc...

Re: Chordtones question

I was looking over some jazzchords over at www.jazzguitar.be and you would assume that they got the theory right, since it's a jazz site and all but when i saw a cmaj9, it only contained c, g, b and d. that is no third in there. That aint a cmaj9 to my knowledge. Of course 1 chord can be many other...

I think that Adam Kadmon's Guitar Grimoire series book called Chords and Voicings is the best. You can find it anywhere on the web, or at Amazon you know. This book sucks balls. I have it, don't buy it. It's worthless as it only provides partial voicings most chords. For example he listed a C major...

OOOOOO! I absolutely love an Abm/maj9 sus 11 add 6 no 5!!!!!
It's so great! Because chord voicings determine how great a song is, not the chord progression or melody!!!

Re: What The Heck Is Feel???

If Clapton has better "FEEL", than Vai because he does not practice, then so be it. Who are you to go off saying that Clapton doesn't practice. Just because Eric Clapton doesn't write detailed articles about his practice schedules in magazines (Guitar World April 2004 "Steve Vai's 30-Hour Guitar Wo...

I have to disaagree. Although it may not be bad to put a partial song away and come back to it later, most people are liable to forget about it and not come back at all. I suggest writing the whole thing: beginning, middle and end, then re-writing what one feels is necessary. The point is to just fi...

I totally disagree with that. If you sit down with your guitar ready to write a song from scratch, and finish it that same session, you're going to end up with a thin song. A song is much like a story, you build on it... it has a start a middle and an end. What I do, is to jam on pieces... scales, ...

as far as your chord questions go, its mainly just an ear thing, whatever sounds good in the context of your song. But as a general rule of thumb, 7's resolve to the tonic, and diminished chords build tension to resolve back to the root. They can also be used to bridge between key changes.

Peace.
