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 ...

Could you send me it perhaps? :wink:

That first one is my favorite vai-lick, and it seemed weird to me too at first, but my gp-tab showed the fingering. playing those same notes with first the ring finger, followed by the index, feels really smooth. It's so fun to play it.

Okey, thanks for the inputs everyone. 8) I've been experimenting a little with it and it's getting a little better. Seemed to work much better as you let the finger lay across the string, dampening. I was able to 'squeeze' the pull much harder, not being afraid of any other string sounding :)

Ah man, I do pull down when it comes to Satch runs, say in the middle of the neck, it's just those open string ones that tear me apart, but I guess I'll do what RAI says... You always know deep inside that eventually it always gets down to just that; practise :roll:

Pull-off direction

Hi. I'm selftaught and don't know any guitarists in personal so I don't know general habits of playing but I was wondering if it's normal when you're pulling off to open strings, to do it upwards/against the body rather than away? It seems to me, as when I'm playing SRV's "Scuttle buttin'" or Van ha...

Well it seems like picking speed has been his main priority, and the stuff he plays is often very alternate pickingfriendly. And of course practise your ass off for years but i guess you already knew that. Though even if its impressive alternatepicking scalear patterns at those speeds, i find it som...

On G3 05 tokyo-dvd, Vai comments and reflects upon the early days when Joe was his teacher and how important that time was for him, and he also mentions how "absolutely musical Joe was, and still is. He's always inventing on the guitar." Guess he wouldn't lie about his old buddy.

I tend to lean to the eric clapton kind of way already mentioned where you even remove the thumb to get a more soulful, a more free vibrato, at least when I'm doing a slighter vibrato. Eric Johnson talks about this and claptons way in The fine arts of guitar video, and explains that what you don't p...

a powerchord only consists of 2 notes as mentioned but really, if you stack another tonic, and even another fifth again on top(requires some stretching) it will still sound quite the same. If you want a 5 note-powerchord, just take a minor barrechord with the root on the low e and mute the flatted t...

Tapping noisy

I'm sure someone here can answer my questions. :oops: When you tap, how are you actually supposed to mute the strings around? I'm getting all kinds of buzzing all the time and it's just such a heartache.. You can't mute at both sides with palmmute without accidently muting the string you're playing ...
