Just Saw Akiro Takashaki.   Guitarist from Loudness. He is a guitar master. A madman of the Axe. It was amazing to see him control the instrument.

Yes, you do.. That is where the patience factors in.. If it was that easy, everyone could do it !! Don't expect to rock out Diary Of A Madman in a week or so....  Staying focused on the goal is the key, don't expect major advancements on a daily basis.. If anything, record yourself once a week so you can hear how you progress to maintain positive momentum...

You have to deal with sounding bad in the begining.  That was easier to do when we were young.

Thanks guys.
I'll check out youtube and google beginner lessons and see what I come up with.
Anything to get me started.

 Time is what you`ll need, and lot`s of it. Once you find that groove, you`ll figure things out easier and then it will come together nicely, but as SDB allready mentioned, time, time, time with patience , patience , patience!
Good luck

I learned by listening. I would watch the guitarist to see what sounds he would get and where his fingers were at. I loved the guitar and the sound so much that it motivateed me beyond anything to learn. I would watch glen alot. I would play along with the priest records. Black sabbath riffs are always killer. They make you smile inside when you get the changes down. It takes time. you need to be motivated no matter what. It comes down to how you manage the different techniques with your hands and body. That is a major factor on your tone. And the reasons for weilding the axe affect your phrasing.

I haven't studied guitar playing at all. When I started last December, I just googled for Judas Priest tabs (as well as looked though this sites tab section) and started playing. My friend who was played a guitar for like ten years has taught me a little bit about how to improve my finger dexterity, but nothing else. When I study a new song, I just look at the tabs from the 'net and listen to the song inquestion to get the rhythm correct. Then I'll just go through one structure over and over again until I can play it at least with the same tempo as the original. Then I'll move on to the next part, until I get the whole song nailed.

Mind you though, I can't play any solos at all, as my fingers aren't that fast yet.

Budred,listen to SDBinNY.  Just Youtube it and wing it man,blah the guitar lessons....who wants another text book scale guitarist anyways right?  I never took lessons but I taught myself by watching Glenn and K.K. but mainly Glenn is and always has been my favorite.

I am not as good as Glenn obviously,my solos are more like a Jimmy Page,Ace Frehley, early 70'sTony Iommi style....I can do a few fast scales ect... without sounding like them if that makes sense so I never got advanced with insane sweeps,insane scales fast as lightning ect....its funny because when I was younger thats what I was aiming for but now I wouldn't want to learn how to get "better' because it would ruin the style I have now because nowadays everybody sounds the same.  As how to learn yeah just youtube it and wing it from there.

I unlike some of you guys can't afford guitar lessons. Not to mention the gas to get there.
It would be a twenty mile drive.
I also work full time with varying schedules. I was just hoping someone
would clue me in on a good place to look to start teaching myself.
Glad you're concerned enough to ask though.

Budred...

There are tons of videos on You Tube, and countless guitar sites on the net.. Just be patient, it takes time and practice.. A lot of time and practice..
[jimmyjames] Tuesday, May 10, 2011 8:14:35 PM 
Why not just go take guitar lessons?

Most people posting here seem to know quite a bit about guitars. I got one for christmas and I need to learn how
to play it. I Know an old man who is a country musician. He lowered the strings closer to the neck for me. He gave me
a "Bad Monkey" tube overdrive and a "Main Squeeze" compressor. I bought a Korg tuner and he showed me how to
tune my guitar. The only thing now is to start learning. Is their anyone here willing to help a newbie. I was hoping
someone here could suggest a site to teach me some "simple" things to practice and help myself get started. I've
never touched a guitar before so any advice has to be simplistic. Could anyone tell me what  these pedals do. Any
advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm to old to become a musician but I've always wanted to play
a guitar. I don't expect to get great I just want to learn to play something. If you guys only want to talk to advanced players
it's all good. Thanks, regardless. Peace!

Nice pile of guitarsya got there.

Should work OK after the distortion, but it will amplify any noise that makes it to the input.

I  run a splitter off my wireless, one to a Boss AC 2 Acoustic Simulator, the other to a Vox Wah, and Boss MT-2, both those outputs into an A/B  switch, then to a Digitech Turbo Flange, steroed out to 2 halfstacks (everything runs direct, have not tried to run stereo loops yet).. Have decided I will need to build a new pedal board and see where the CS-3 will work best in the chain (may not need it in front of the AC-2 as it already has some compression built in)..This will also give me the opprtunity to get the rest of the pedals out of mothballs.. I  have also read that it works well after the distortion, but before modulation, so may try that as well.. I don't know.. Going to have some fun noodling with it, though...

Put it first in line and start with the recomended settings for the sound you want. Then experiment for what works best for you. Attack and sustain are the most notable differences you`ll hear.
When you figure out your attack, you`ve made a huge step. It`s dependent on you picking style.
For my level control, I ran it at 60%, it gave me a hot signal that would help keep noise down in the other pedals that made lot`s of noise when turned up.
Sustain, is subject to over kill, it will drag out your passages, sometimes more than you want. So go sparingly on that or turn off the compressor for those passgaes you want to tail off sooner.
Tone, up to you, I ran it 80% for the top end, it can get shrill depending on the rest of your settings along the way.

Compressor`s are great, they bring up the signal as it decays and level`s out the peaks if you get ham fisted. They perform better with the AC adaptors, batteries never last long in them. And the sound change is drastic with a low battery.
I used to leave mine on all the time.
