"4/4 and 8/8 sound the same it is just the notation that is different." Either you're spot on about that, or 8/8 doesn't exist. One of the two. So in a way I agree with you, but 8/8 isn't something that exists to me, so I truly go with the 2nd choice. That is the point, 8/8 exists so does 1/1. I ca...

Chemical composition? Meaning someone with silicon based fingers instead of carbon?

You being a drummer explains it all now. 4/4 and 8/8 sound the same it is just the notation that is different. maybe the guy wants to use ...

The top eight means there are 8 beats in the measure.

The bottom eight means that an 8th note gets one beat.

Why is this so complicated?

I think some people like to type too much. :D

You could write in 1/1 2/2 4/4 8/8 16/16, it would sound the same. There are no compound beats.

Tone is in your fingers.

Can someone explain why anyone would say this? You hear Vai, and other guitarists who are in the elite, say this, but I think they are the exception and not the rule. They have their own style and flare. If Steve Vai plays for the love of god on my guitar set up of course he will sound like Vai. But...

I don't think as many people don't like him for the scales he does or doesn't play, but for how bad of a guitarist he is. His technique is poor, and he can't bend in tune.

Because you've never seen it, it doesn't exist? I've never seen an arrogant moron before but they must exist because I see your posts.

YOU WOULDN'T USE A DOUBLE SHARP OR FLAT IN A KEY SIGNATURE FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND. THAT IS NOT WHAT THE ORIGINAL QUESTION WAS TRYING TO CLEAR UP.

Simply put.... If you are making a note that is flat or sharp, flat or sharp, such as.. A# to B, but you are playing in a key that B is already sharp, it may be confusing that you have a B and B# in the same scale or key, so it is notated as A##. It sounds like a B but for notation purposes it is a ...

Try playing a scale or run, and use the foot on the pedal to push up and down as the beat. Do what every guitarist that has ever bought a wah does and strum muted strings and make it go wicki wicki like bad 70's songs. :D

yngwie does not play with feeling... its just the same diminished arpeggios and scale runs over and over.. and some pretty rupsulsive facial expressions Listen to "Like an Angel" to hear him play with feeling. Not all of his songs are harmonic minor runs. And check out live at the Astoria for some ...

I don't know how fast I am, but I can play pretty much any lick out there, with the exception of ultra fast sweep arpeggios.
