    Ok here is one ...
    while playing anything fix a couple of ur fingers on particular frets .........
    like if u are begining with G or something .... when u change to lets say ....
    Em, dont leave the 5th and 6th strings 3rd fret positions......

    Heres another one .....
    Try messing up the guitar tuning ..... but by some formula .....
    For example: tune first strings at fret 5, second at 4 then 3 2 1. ......
    then try n play tabs of differentn songs and try to play correctly ...... you would have to artistically adjest your tabbing with respect to tuning .... its fun
    start with a very simple tab .umm like .. Nirvana's come as you are base tabs ... !

    have fun

    ok here goes another .....
    no matter what song you are playing .... just play ANY THREE strings .... finger pick them .... sounds nice. selection of strings is off course very crucial fer eg. if the song u are playing is mostly on D and A and Am and stuff ... last three strings would be amazing .....

    another trick will be with you shortly ....

    arrite .... this is something i came up with accidently... and this may sound insane but it sounds really great.

    Guitar: Acoustic
    Tape: Duct Tape
    ( this is getting intersting ... right :p )
    Now tape the second (or any fret you want ... wen u know what we are doing) fret of the guitar ........

    Play any fast track with heavy strumming and play tabs of that song .... it WILL sounfd like drums playing in the back ground ... and when i say drums .... not exactly 'drums' drums but brizilian tribal beats drums type thingy .... :s .... yeah ok this is weired but try it .... its fun.....

    and once u get the hang of it, tape any fret and playyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy :)

    I guess i play one little trick.. Middle of the Punishment Due solo, You can play the solo with you hands above the fretboard.. Just like tapping.. But playing the actual notes.. Playable even with paradigm shift..

  15. jayanth

    jayanth <.: : Call Quits : :.>

    LOL.. Sad joke.. though..

    hehe a jokes a joke so really doesnt matter it was sad o happie .... and about that duct tape thingy .... you can use any kind of tape but that brown packaging tape would work too ... also to improve this trick ... u can just simple place a card (those plastic ones ) at the top portion of the neck ....... this sounds stupid na ?:p but this sounds BEST .... place the card in such a way that the card would go under the 6th string., over the fifth, then under the fourth, over the third, under the second and over the first ....... the sound will change if you move the card while strumming .... try it and do tell me what you think ....
  17. jayanth

    jayanth <.: : Call Quits : :.>
