    Learn scales more than you learn anything else. When I teach people, I can't stress that enough to them if you're interested in lead guitar.

    easy riffs that will teach you stuff:

    led zeppelin's heartbreaker
    smoke on the water
    aerosmith's sweet emotion will make you good at a lot of things
    Heart's Crazy on You
    Eric Clapton's Cocaine, Sunshine of your love, Layla Unplugged
    Working Man by Rush (the whole song is easy, first song I learned)

    What kind of guitar do you have?

    If you really want to kick ass, learn sheet music and sight reading.

    I do.

    I don't charge for lessons because if you get some kid who has parents forcing him to learn it, it'd be pure hell for both of us. But if people ask me to teach them that really want to learn everything, I'll do it.

    Plus if I can convert people to real music from hip hop, that's a major plus.

    I liked it until I came to my senses and rediscovered real music. Now I can't listen to a full rap song.

    The forums I post in on this site have little to do with rap.

    i forgot to mention..

    some of the songs i listed are played in drop-d.

    assuming you've got it tuned correctly, the 5th fret of the low E string should sound like the open A string. tune it down so that the 7th fret of the low E string sounds like the open A string.

    it's basically a lazy way of playing power chords with a bassier metal sound.

    im kind of in teh same boat as you... it all started when i took up guitar and remembered that guns and roses were my fav band

    and when i hear rap today makes me just have no feelings... but throw on some good shit like some all eyez on me or something and its evident that hiphop is real music.

    people act like you cant like both

    i go by quality, not genre. a 5 star album is a 5 star album regardless of the style of music it is. therefore i appreciate the good and disregard the bad and ugly unless it's stupid enough to deserve public ridicule.

    having said that, i'm a rock/metal fan first and foremost. hard rock has always been my favourite and that will never change.
