Let me tell you somthing, if you're playing all 4-5-7-8 of them strings, the song you're playing more than likley sucks. I found my pick. Give me the root notes, please. I can't play by ear, but I sure do think I can rock out to whatever the other members of my band are playing. Technique? Theory? Huh? What are these? I just want to see people dance.
