    I have been playing the electric guitar since the start of this year (so basically nine months) but I usually only get the chance to play in the holidays. I would also love to learn how to play the drums but my neighbours and family wouldn't like that too much. They hate it enough already when I play the guitar.

    Question for those who play the guitar: when you have to play a chord with two strings fretting on the same fret e.g. the 8th fret on the B string and the 8th fret on the G string, do you use two separate fingers or just the same finger pressing on both the strings?

    how would you play something with 2 notes, but theyre pretty far apart, without playing the notes in between? eg.

    e:------
    B:--1---
    G:------
    D:------
    A:--3--
    E:------

    Also, if that is a chord, you would play the strings in between "open", i.e. without pressing on any frets.

    How would everyone play something like this:

    e-------------------------------------------------|
    B------11-14-11-----11-11-11-11-11------|
    G--10-------------13---------------------------|
    D-------------------------------------------------|
    A-------------------------------------------------|
    E-------------------------------------------------|

    I am trying to play it by having my index finger on the G-10 note and stretching my pinkie out to the B-14 note but it is really hard. How would everyone else play it?

    I just played that, I didnt find it hard.....Maybe im just a fully PwNzOr aXeMaN?

    Practising it over and over with a metronome will take care of it though. I cant believe youre a guy.......

    How big is the file? I am only on dial-up connection.

    So did you play the notes the same way that I am trying to? Also, could you please tell me what a metronome does/is? Thanks.

    Yeah. My advice to you Merethrond is to buy a more expensive wooden one. The electronic ones are around $30 cheaper but they are so annoying and youll probably end up smashing it into tiny bits after a few days...

    Thanks. It is not going to do me much good though because for one, I don't know what timing it is in, and secondly, I need to play it as slow as possible at the moment.

    You can alter the times on them. Anything from Largo to Presto.

    What the? I doesn't matter if you can change the timing though if you don't know what the timing of each song is to start with.
