I will have to look into this, when I saw you saying "train your ear" I originally thought that you had bought that perfect pitch thing that's always advertised in Guitar World

Then it plays the interval in a random key and you've got to identify it. You can use default songs or add yours. For example, i couldn't remember well the minor second and minor third songs it had, so i entered a few notes from Windir's 1184 and Metallica's Orion. There's a lot of options, and it's designed to increase relative pitch (i believe that's how it's called), so you can figure out any song by ear.

I think it works :) started two days ago and i've already picked out a few intervals in songs without even thinking about it. Very useful tool IMO.
Cool. Added to faves!
Thanks!

I'll have time to use it now, since my music comp asignment is over. It would also be a great help in my analytical essay coming up

Learning the bass line from 'Run For Cover' by Marcus Miller. Very cool slap-bass groove...

Picked up this book called The Guitar Grimoire: Scales and Modes by Adam Kadmon

Now to all those who are wanting to learn scales I'd highly suggest you look for this book. It's only $25 and has over 6 thousand diagrams in it. In the front it also tells which degrees of the scale are need to make chords like the Major, Diminshed, Minor 7th etc.

There's the deep end.

Then there's Teen Town.
So my mom was like "Clean your room" and I'm like "No way fascist, I'm the Punkest", then I stabbed her with my Linkin Park pen.

haha indeed, I suspect it'll be quite some time before being anywhere near up to speed... But even playing it slower, I'm sure it'll be beneficial and fun. Also I've got his transcription book so I'll learn some of his other 'easier' grooves along the way.

'tis quite a comprehensive book. Literally just diagrams though, not much instruction per se.

I think the important thing is listening to the accents he uses, and the notes that are held just slightly longer than expected.

You're doing it the hard way, mate.
