Buy a real book and start learning heads to popular songs, Take the A Train, Autumn Leaves, Satin Doll. Then learn the chords to all of them. Then you can start to solo. A good place to start when you solo is to play the 1 3 5 and 7 of the changes in quarter notes through the whole song. Once you can do that at tempo change it to the 3rd 5th 7th and 1st of the changes. Then you can start to do the same thing but make more off-beat and more like a solo. Playing through the changes starting on the 3rd of the chords really brings out the melody of the changes and makes it easier to play a melodic solo.

Do you know how to find 7th, minor 7th, and major 7th chords to each "regular" chord? They are pretty easy to find.
I could explain it but it would be kinda hard through text. I'd just look up the shapes somewhere online.

Shifting back and forth between those while finger picking has really helped my fretting hand independence and how fast I can alternate between chords in general. In turn, it will also help out with the single note stuff too when you go back to it. Your pinky and ring finger get a really nice work out. People always complain about the pinky being the tough finger. But it's really your ring finger since it's sharing tendons with two others.

Question:
Ok, so i played bass for a few years (like 5), and ive played other instruments. I can read music just fine and i was pretty decent playing bass. Now that i dont have anyone to jam with, i wanna switch to guitar and play as stress relief from college.

My question is this. What suggested guitars should i look at that i wont likely outgrow very quickly but isnt overly expensive. Ive played bass long enough to feel the difference between a ****ty guitar and a decently setup guitar so i think if i start back at the bottom i will get frustrated and quit quickly.

I guess im not asking for a direct recommendation, maybe just what i should be looking for in a guitar, or what features i do and dont want or what i should stay away from. Once i get a generally concensus of what i should look at or for, im going to go try a few guitars to see what suits me. I just need a place to get started.

Acoustic? Electric? Something small and light or thicker with a deeper tone? Do you need an amp? What's your price range.

Be as detailed as possible when asking for things like this. It will help us find better matches for you.

Electric solid body for sure. Ill take care of the amp. Im not really sure on the price range. Im trying to figure out where i stand on that. Im thinking of spending around $500 on just the guitar. Im trying to also figure out if i want to go with a 22 or 24 fret. As far as size of the guitar, comfort of playability is important but after playing bass for many years, i doubt that the weight is really an issue. lol

I snagged my Schecter C-1 Classic for $600 a few years ago. Incredible guitar. But as far as what I like, here are some of my suggestions:

http://www.zzounds.com/item--FEN0148300
http://www.zzounds.com/item--FEN0148202
http://www.zzounds.com/item--IBARGA42FM
http://www.zzounds.com/item--IBAS570B

There are also various Epiphone models available to look at as well.

Yeah Schectors are real nice. I've liked the tone out of all the ones I've played. I'm a big fan of my Gretsch Corvette. However, all the other Gretch's I've played in the $500-$600 range I've been unimpressed with.

Honestly unless you're hell bent on buying a brand new guitar, I'd check the used market. There's always sick guitars for every price range if you're willing to snag something that's been played on a bit.

Really depends on what kind of sound you want though. Not something that can really be decided until you've played for awhile I suppose. But a good indication of favorite guitarists or tone that you really like would be good to know in reference to what you'd be comfortable with playing. Not all guitars sound the same. Nor is all prog rock the same. Do you want a thicker, hotter, humbuckered LP styled tone or do you want something cleaner and sharper like a single coiled strat?

I gotta say, playing classical guitar has been one of the funnest things ever. Revamped my interest in guitar again, and made me a better player quicker than anything else I've tried. Taking it slow and having to go back to the basics was the best thing I could have done. Some of the stretches and finger independence required to play some of that stuff, makes playing "rock" a lot easier on electric. Overall, I just feel more relaxed and fluent with the instrument.

AND, I get my Dual Recto tomorrow

And Treghc, I keep forgetting to bring headphones to campus so I can check out your stuff. But I will!
