  1. not sure if this was the right place to post this so if its not just move it to wherever you wish...

    i have been practicing tap with this simple thing that i think i might have made up but also may have gotten from my sub concious because it sounds slightly familiar but cant seem to put my finger on it. The problem is i have been thinking of writing a song around it because it sounds so cool.
    its two handed tap. the left hand taps the e and g and the right hand taps he d and a strings. i play it melodic at first and then rapidly fast.

    E:--12----------12------------:| x2
    ____L R R L R R L R R L R R

    E:--10----------10------------:| x2
    ____L R R L R R L R R L R R

    ill record a sound clip when i get the time

    Back in my tab days, ok like 6 months to a year ago, I got the tab for Stu Hamm's "Quahogs Anyone" that looks VERY similar, if not exactly, the same to this part of the song.

    It's just a powerchord (root, 5th, octave) with a minor 3rd on top.
  5. well i looked up stus and its not like that and definetly sounds nothing like it the way i play it. Should i use it? Sounds great with a little chorus on my fretless and then some short delay
  6. I say use it. Heck lots of things have been used before and still sound good. If you like it use it.

    Nice sig. by the way. :)

    Sorry, i need to learn how to read tab sometime...

    Well i don't think you can copyright a chord, so i think you are pretty much free to do whatever you want, legally.

    Especially when it's that generic.

    I'm fairly sure someone has played a minor triad w/ octave (clever!) before.
  9. yeah i guess the way i posted that sounded really stupid considering its pretty much a chord but it was the way i was playing it that made me think i heard it like that before. Ill have to get a sound clip up here to show you what i mean.

    It seems good guy:)
    Ionly want to specify that what you play with the left hand is a quick-hammer-on, not a tapping:cool:
    I don't wanna be judged bad, but it looks like an 'arpeggio', I don't seen the need of using tapping:cool:
    I think it will be cooler played with a 'barré' on the 9th or 10th freet.:D


    Try this guy!
