So I work at a daycare, and one of the parents offered to pay me $60 for 3 lessons per week for his 6 year old son. The kid has literally no musical experience at all and I've never given organized lessons before. I'm wondering if there are any experienced guitarists who could point me in the right direction regarding how to begin with him?
I'm looking for a practice amp that can deliver modern metal tones at low volumes. I currently own the Boss Katana 50 — which JUST gets me into the metal territory, but not particularly well. Personally, I find the higher gain metal amp models a little fizzy for my taste.
At the moment, I'm considering something like the Peavey 6505MH which has built in attenuation from 20 – 1 Watt. What are you guys using? Does anyone have experience with the 6505MH? Any other recommendations?
My first foray into writing songs. I've tried writing lyrics first, and then the melodies/harmonies, but it doesn't work whatsoever for me. I've had the most luck with writing the melody/harmony first (It at least yields something musical that sounds good). I'm just having trouble writing lyrics to go with the guitar.
This Gates of Babylon cover is based on version from Benjamin Wood's Flametal album. I had to cut the guitar track high frequencies rather hard to avoid the humming noise, but otherwise I'm quite happy for this. Using the minor E key makes the playing quite simple. You are able to use open E and B strings in verse. The tricky part is keeping the tempo stable.
