I learned the other day that Ron Asheton (Stooges) played power chords everywhere in the open E shape.

Elphenor 07-23-2016 01:41 PM

I've noticed you can use that shape everywhere and it sounds good

Well sometimes I'll have to mute the high e and the b strings

Disco King 07-23-2016 03:43 PM

Because it's a perfect fourth interval

Disco King 07-23-2016 03:45 PM

You can play power chords like that because it's an inversion of s perfect fifth interval

You are now less post-punk for knowing this. And you can never unknow it.

wait what's the open E shape

Damn look how punk this guy is doesn't even know what an open E looks like

teh b0lly!!1 07-23-2016 04:48 PM

:smoke:

teh b0lly!!1 07-23-2016 04:49 PM

to be clear though, i obviously know the regular open E shape.

i just don't understand what you guys mean by applying it to other chords.

Elphenor 07-23-2016 04:51 PM

As in you just slide it down the fretboard the same way you do with power chords

teh b0lly!!1 07-23-2016 04:53 PM

ah yeah. i do that.

but i mostly keep to only a few certain spots where it sounds good. like, if i have to mute the e and b strings i might as well just use a standard power chord shape and be done with it.

Elphenor 07-23-2016 05:10 PM

It's funny because I have a song I wrote based on just moving the open E shape just because it sounded good didn't really think too much about it

Disco King 07-23-2016 05:28 PM

Open E to me is 0-0-1-2-2-0, but since Sunken specifically said 'power chords,' I assumed he meant x-x-x-2-2-x. Like, that's still an E power chord, but it had the fifth (B) as the bass note instead of the root. Alternatively, you could take the B as the root note and call it a Perfect Fourth interval instead.

In retrospect, this required a lot of assumption on my part as to what Slunken meant. If I misinterpreted him, it's probably because I got no sleep last night.

Disco King 07-23-2016 05:33 PM

I like 'dreamy' chord tensions, like 7ths, 9ths, etc., and I can get some cool chords by taking a chord shape with open strings and sliding it, while keeping the open strings open (so long as all notes played are in key).

for example 0554 for G, 0775 for A

Elphenor 07-23-2016 07:08 PM

wut I play G 320003

slunken 07-23-2016 07:09 PM

oh forget it

Elphenor 07-23-2016 07:11 PM

that's only 4 strings too what language is this ahhh

teh b0lly!!1 07-24-2016 01:25 AM

haha
if i hadn't asked for clarification you guys would still all be seriously nodding your heads

teh b0lly!!1 07-24-2016 01:27 AM

fucking around with chord voicings and different tunings are one of the best ways to make the guitar sound fresh to my ears.

after playing for so long i basically cannot play basic chord progressions anymore without being bored by it (unless i have a particular idea for a song i'm trying to get through). what are some of your guys' fav tunings?

slunken 07-24-2016 02:06 AM

lol

teh b0lly!!1 07-24-2016 02:22 AM

TIME BOMB

cork_soaker 07-24-2016 12:28 PM

i can play the bury me solo with accuracy surpassing that of the original recording

Ah.

Don't see how those are power chords, though. They've all got dat major third. Those are major chords with E as a bass note (which is still a cool idea, it creates a droning thing, similar to that thing I like to do with open strings I was talking about). In the case of that G chord, it's a G major sixth. Or, if you want to look at it as an E chord, it's an E minor seventh.

In the case of that A chord, since E is already in the chord, it's just an A minor triad inversion.

The cool thing about doing this stuff is that the same chord shape gives different chord tensions, depending on what relationship the droning note has to the rest of the chord.

Yeah, there's more than one way to play a chord

Allow me to blow your mind

355433

Or even

320033

What witchcraft is this? How can the notes be in more than one place? Highlight the below text if you think you're ready for this

Should come in handy for the whole "pfft I barely use the top two strings" thing

I pretty much only play in standard tuning or drop D tuning (I may lower all the strings by the same number of steps, but the intervals between strings are always the same as one of the aforementioned two tunings) because it's how I learnt otherwise, it'd be like learning a whole new instrument, and I'm too lazy to do that.

I also get bored of regular triads and am always trying to play with different chord tensions. Even just throwing a seventh chord or two into a progression can really spice it up.

As for voicings, I'm lazy, so I haven't really internalized any inversions yet, and I just default to the basic voicing of any given chord. Maybe I should try learning more. I was thinking lately that learning just three-string chords could help with sticking triple-stops into solos.

teh b0lly!!1 07-24-2016 04:20 PM

so i'm seriously considering buying an RME babyface. the older one, not pro. around 500$ give or take. small, portable, high quality audio interface with two good quality mic preamps. pretty much all i need. and i'll be able to take it with me wherever i go, which right now is greatly appealing to me as my old DAW computer is a huge desktop computer that i still haven't even unpacked because it's such an enormous hassle.

what are you guys using for audio interfaces? any recommendations for USB powered ones?

Disco King 07-24-2016 04:31 PM

I've got a Tascam US-200. The Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 looked cool, too.

teh b0lly!!1 07-24-2016 04:49 PM

yeah i'd checked that one out too. significantly cheaper - like, half the price - which makes me a bit suspicious that the mic preamps are probably not of very good quality.

i mean let's be honest, anything will probably be an improvement over my old mbox 2 pro, but i'm not sure which price range really gives the best bang for buck.
