How were you able to do that? Did you or some family member has a job like that?

Yay, clarinet! Played that all throughout High School. Nothing like getting jealous towards saxophones because THEIR thumb key bumps them up an octave, not a silly twelfth...

What's a silly twelfth? Is it like halfway between a perfect twelfth and an augmented twelfth or something?

It probably takes a ton of practice.

I'd say that makes him a poet and/or lyricist. music is usually needed to be a musician. P

And digitally speeding up your song.

Dragonforce is pretty close to the top of how fast the guitar can be played by humans. If you can't play that fast, you're pretty normal. Most people, including professionals, can't. But there's more to being good than just technical speed, so I wouldn't feel bad about it.

Michael Angelo Batio's songs are basically nothing but practice songs. Absurdly fast and clean, but no real musical passion. Robotic in all the best and worst ways. :P

Yes, but different speakers use different cables. It could be one of those fat headphone like cables like guitars use, or a three pin cable like microphones use or a power cable or even bare wire that gets wrapped under a screw.

Assuming you mean the type of cable pictured below, I think male-female cables don't exist but you can buy adapters from Amazon pretty cheaply that'll let you use a regular cable. I'm sure you could get them from ebay or from a local music shop if Amazon doesn't ship to wherever you are too.

I play bass guitar, though I'm dabbling in drums. I played keyboards for a year but never really learned anything.
I also play harmonica.
Wish I could play guitar, but I only know 3 chords!

Hey another bassist who's awful at the regular guitar! :D

Also, generally you wanna avoid too many connectors. Ideally you'd just get a really long 1/4" rather than add an extender to what you have.

There seems to be a lot of bassists on this forum. Maybe we should start a very, very loud, very, very low-register band.

I joked about having a bass quintet in my college jazz band. Our director wasn't a fan of the idea.

I'd be the bass bass since I have a B string. :B

What really helped me speed up my playing was playing scales. From standard Major and Minor scales, to pentatonic scales. After getting comfortable with playing a scale by memory, I would try to play the scales faster and faster. Part of being able to play fast, especially when it comes to riffs, is being deft enough to make a smooth, but quick transition along the fret board. It's a skill that comes in handy if you want to play something more on the technical side, as individual notes are more enunciated.

When it comes to the sheer speed of the notes, practicing tremolo picking is an absolute must. Since I played drums (specifically Grindcore) before I played guitar, having to play blast beats already prepared me to move my hand fast. It just requires more precision when it comes to guitar.


Bass is something else that is a gem. I actually learned how to play 6-, 7-, and 8-string guitars before learning to even play a 4-string bass. Now that I play a 6-string bass, I have a deep appreciation for the instrument, as there is a lot of variety with what you can do with it.

I learned to play on a 5-string, actually! I figured it'd be more natural to start with it from the very beginning than learn on a 4-string and then upgrade later.
