First of all when I type "GAD", I mean the MAJOR chords, G (as in the specific notes GBD, that is what notes make a G major chord), A (AC#E) and D (DF#A). I was assuming and hoping that you understood that bit, or at least how to play those chords on guitar. Em and Bm refer to the E minor (EGB) and...

Isn't that only the order they are in the case of a major key? By understanding what the term "Relative Minor" means, you will know what notes are in a minor key even if your only given the major key signature. All minor scales have a major scale that corrosponds with it and has the same notes. the...

Hey there, thanks for your help. *By looking at a key signature, you know what notes are sharp/flat in that key. then using those notes, this is how you know what chords are major, minor or diminished: I Major, ii Minor, iii Minor, IV Major, V Major, vi Minor, vii Diminished. Isn't that only the ord...

Hi Ricardo, thanks for your help again! Will I start with the bits I don't understand? OK, here goes - I'll quote from your last post each time. "imagine a group of 6 chords that share a key signature" - how do I do that? How do I know which chords share a key sig? "turn the wheel so that whichever ...

Is powertabs Piracy? I think it is. Would it not be nice to just go buy the Passion and Warfare book for only a mere $19. I think so. Surely, Santa could aford that for all of the good kids this AXE-mas. Then again maybe we won't have many more if we keep on RIPPING off Steve Vai and all of are oth...

(pg 82) and on the next is like "cleaner with every strum;" (pg.86) I'm so pissed, because i was really curious what he understood by chord practice... HELP!!! Mine is exa...

It's not only the chords section missing, there are random pages missing... In mine, it's only page numbers 83,84 and 85 which are mi...

I have the Steve-approved accurate version in my Passion & Warfare tab book. This is the album version, not live G3. It's about 20 pages!

AAARRGGGHH!!! :evil: Anyone got a link to the FULL version, or to the missing pages?? Or even just a breakdown of w...

I'm self taught initially. I wanted to play like Maiden, Priest, EVH, Vai of course, Metallica. Angus Young made me pick up guitar, Randy Rhoads made me wanna be good at it!! Steve Vai made me wanna give up, initially!! But I played on and off for years, still self-taught. Sadly for me, I held a ty...

Thanks guys! Ah, I see! It's a notation thing! If there's already an A present in the scale, you would call the next note Bb instead of A# yeah? So, conversely, if there were no A present, would it always be called A#?? Is this what's known as enharmonic spelling - knowing when, for example, a Bb is...
