How to remember scales when moving up and down the fretboard when soloing?How to remember patterns fast?

in

One expert said that i should practice scales one string at a time instead of box patterns to remember scales when moving up and down and also to make melodic licks.Is it true?

Answer: 
Don't think about scales. Learn by ear a couple of songs a week and in a few weeks, you'll become more aware of the notes and their positions on the fretboard

How to get my fingertips to stop hurting after playing guitar?Been playing for four years?

in

Hey guys I've been playing guitar for four years. I play around 4-5 hours a day on my acoustic. And I pick a lot so both of my hands have thick callus's on them and they haven't ever really hurt since I got them. But today and yesterday my finger tips have been hurting insanely bad, and I can't even play, I don't what the fuck is happening. Can you give me some advice besides stop playing?

Answer: 
Putting dabs of super glue on your fingertips sometimes provides you with a little shielding. Do it before you start playing at all and it might help. Take breaks in between these 4-5 hours practice sessions. If any of these blisters breaks and you have extremely raw flesh, you're not going to be able to play at all, due to the pain. Just as exercising any muscle, there can be overuse and injury, so make you sure your conditioning allows time for re-heal, or soon enough, you're going to be forced to a break for a few days.

How to get "sunshine for your love" tone?

in

I have a Vox Valvetronix AD50VT amp, and i really want to get "the women tone" by Eric Clapton! I tried using uk 70's distortion preset with a bit of reverb, but i just can nail the warmness of his tone. I searched it up on a few sights, and they all suggest using a "wah" peddle, but my auto wah preset really sucks. Any suggestions?
Oops, meant to say "sunshine of your love" lol.

Answer: 
First you really need humbucking pickups (you didn't mention your guitar) - preferably a hot one in the neck position. Back the guitar’s tone controls all the way off. Put the pickup selector switch in the middle position. Set the bridge pickup’s volume to about six or seven, and the neck pickup all the way up (10). The way Clapton used the Wah-wah on this was as a tone control - the pedal was left at a high angle (the sound changes pretty drastically with minor movements, so the "exact" angle will have to be determined during use). The rest was Clapton . . .

How do you sync downloaded nico nico songs into iPod? I can play them in iTunes but when I sync them into my iPod, I can't listen to some songs. Help please.

Answer: 
That happened to me recently. I found that if I played a song through iTunes While I edited data within, it corrupted the song. Try syncing them again. Or use Sharepod.
