It's not the principle of "playing it right" it's the fact that there is a difference in the sound and therefore the potential/use of the scale in different areas. There will always be times when every note needs to be played for that choppy sound (in my opinion in slower areas/moreprominant runs) whereas hammering andlegato sounds better for more graceful and calm runs. There isn't such a thing as 'the correct way', just there's a variety of ways in which the scale/riff may be played to alter the tone and dynamics in a way that benefits the section the most. The moral is to learn stuff in as many ways as possible,increasing your versatility. Easier said than done though, and at timesmay often seem a waste of time. The biggest part of learning guitar is that practicing things you find harder until you find them easy is the fastest way to increase technique.

I'mnot picking fault at all, but with your suggested way, I find it harder to achieve clarity in the notes (fretting each means you can 'accent' and prevent duff notes/excessive and unwanted ringing). Guess I should practice it more though

Anyone having any luck making anything interesting with this scale by the way? This seems a nice filling lick to stick between things, albeit a bit empty sounding

Code:
e------------------------10-14-10---10-9 b--9-10------9-10-14-------------14------10-9 g--------11------------------------------------11-7-6~ *-[triplet=]-[triplet=]----16ths

too easy really.
and before anyone moans about me not playing it "right", i hang my guitar low, like hetfield does or used to. and it sounds more interesting to me.

Haha! What an analysis

Check out some stuff by Chris Impelliterri, for both a horrific haircut and a mysteriously bad playing style that somehow works wonders for him. I have one of those shitty instructional videos by him somewhere.

Anyway...

Chris Impelliteri! What a hero...definately one of the worst hair cuts in metal...as for his technique, all pentatonics and he hardly ever uses his little finger on one of the shitty 80's instructional vids i used to own!

Can't remember which album it is but it opens with "father forgive them". That is a kick ass album! Hair metal at its best...L.A. Guns times ten!

Joe

I think his tone was very good ( for an 80's hair metal sound ), from what we can gather from a recording like that. "Good" and "Bad" tone is subjective, when you're talking about the caliber of equipment he's using ( custom Kamikaze and a Marshall ). And especially someone on his level, whether or not you like the tone, he knows what he wants, and does'nt need a "lesson".



agreed totally

Now that is fucking ridiculous. Garr1...punk, you should know better than to make more than one thread about the same fuckin' thing. I'll merge these for you--next time I'll just close your redundancy.

Eh? I thought he made two threads about different subjects? One with George Lynch's "Gothic Octave" and one with his "Mr.Scary" video.

btw i dont play the pulloff ... i play it with open a and the rest of the notes on the a string so you can just stay in 2nd fingering position and dont have to switch to 4th or 5th... much easier imo .. can tab it if you dont understand what i mean

deifiler, youre spot on.
i think approaching music with the mindset of copying a piece absolutely is just plain boring.
making a piece sound your own doesnt necessarily come down to just phrasing, but involves technique also.
i like to slide into and out of notes and use lots of legato to make it sound more complex and snaky. i call this dynamics.
i find it interesting to hear how different musicians approach the same piece of music yet leave their personal stamp on it without sacrificing the original.
i think its all good.

I merged them, can't you read?

And yes, though they are differnt videos, they're the same damn subject/person. We don't need 80 separate fucking video threads of the same person.
