i don't like any of your lessons really because the songs are on a 7 string

evilmpevilmp replied

He is awesome to see live, this video is the first time I have ever been able to see his pick hand. Live he flies blazing speed and precision. Very talented band to say the least they are the real deal.

olseawolfolseawolf replied

Booo! He plays them on a 7 so they should be taught on a 7. i never cease to be amazed...

evilmpevilmp replied

I had a seven string Jeff Loomis signature had to get rid of it fretboards on any 7 string are insanely big and take a lot more skill and talent. Arpeggio's are increasingly more diffcult at higher speeds on a 7 too.

jbeiteljbeitel replied

you should do one with a 6 string

beck_flanderbeck_flander replied

awsome lesson

edenajbedenajb replied

nevermind, just realised it's a 7 string guitar.

edenajbedenajb replied

hiya, i'm confused at the start of scene 2 where you say that it starts at the open b string on the 1st fret. Don't you mean the open E string and the first fret being F ??

That "ROCKED" more Gravey please.

MarkBrennanMarkBrennan replied

To play Mushroomhead's tunes (or any 7 string tune) on a six string, tune your bottom three strings down to the tuning of the bottom three of a 7 string: low E down to B, A down to E, and your D down to A. Leave your top three strings in standard tuning. You might need heavier guage strings on the bottom three to do this. Thanks to Dennis Hodges for the suggestion.

What tuning is this?

MarkBrennanMarkBrennan replied

Gravy uses standard 7 string tuning (BEADGBE), but he is tuned down a half step (A#D#G#C#F#A#D#).

anarchyanarchy replied

Never mind, looked it up.

anarchyanarchy replied

What tuning is this in ?

Time to build that custom 7 string telecaster.

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"
 

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"
 

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
