Guitar playing technique and approach?
« on: February 03, 2014, 03:16:27 PM »
Brothers, tanong ko lang kung anong approach ang ginagawa nyo sa worship. Open chords at power chords lang ba ginagamit nyo or nagamit din kayo ng triads and other stuff? Ano din ang approach nyo sa instrumental part ng mga kanta?

Share ko lang yun sakin. Usually open chords or power chords lang ginagamit ko pag verse at chorus at sa instrumental lang ako nag scale. Yan ay kung di ko alam yung riffs and licks ng kanta. Usually sa instrumental ang ginamit ko ay major at minor scale lang tapos depende sa mood. Di ako nasunod sa chord progression basta nag lalaro lang ako sa mga nota ng scale.

Share your knowledge naman guys! :D

Nice one. Simple lang kasi ako.. minsan kasi wala kameng keys, so plucking na open chords madalas. At kailangan ko talaga ng Capo. hehe. kahit key of G which is kaya namang gawin kahit walang capo, nagcacapo parin ako para lang maiba yung tunog with key of D pattern. with some reverbs and delays on. hehe.

Pag chorus part na at sasabay na yung drums kadalasan heavy rhythm chords ginagawa ko with 1st stage OD on. pero minsan ginagaya ko yung Hillsong or elevation, yung tipong may guitar line sila sa chorus and verse.. hahaha.. maiba lang..hehe

Sa instrumental part naman, simpleng scale lang talaga. Di ako nagmamabilis na lead part. or flashy. Medyo takaw atensyon kasi yung mga flashy lines lalo sa mababagal na kanta.. 2 overdrives on, with delays.. minsan analog setting para dark, minsan dotted 8th plus quarter note combo..hehe..

Mine goes with open chords and usual chord stuffs when acoustic or even electric. I also play triads, octaves and inversions to add flavor. Pag hindi ko masyado siprado yung kanta I improvise and add lines na approprate sa key ng song, same with leads and I tend it to be close to the record. Most of the time nagiisa lang akong guitar player and I cover a lot of ground so my delays and reverbs are always on to add space. There are times may keys and acoustic akong kasama which makes my life easier. I also do a lot of lead lines lalo na pag lincoln brewster yung song, Old hillsongs like Reaching for you, Planetshakers this is how we overcome etc. For my part I need to understand almost everything etc since I need to be flexible in our group as a Rhythm/lead guitar. :)

From standard open chords to power chords to major and minor triads to octaves to major and minor thirds, anything goes as long as its pleasing to the ears and of course lots and lots of delays :lol:

Sir pano ba gamitin yung triads na yan? Hahaha Diba yung triads ay yung tatlong note na bumubuo ng chords? Na stuck na kase ako sa open chords, power chords, octave, saka scale.

tama bro yun yung mga notes na mag-spell sa isang chord.

Maraming style ang pwdeng gawin sa praise & worship eh since malawak yung scope ng mga tugtugin. From Rock, blues, Jazz to soul meron kaya maganda ding makinig sa maraming genre ng music dahil may time na darating na kailangan mong tumugtog ng ganung style.

I usually play lead guiar sa church, may acoustic player at keyboardista kami. kailangan ko lang umiba sa ginagawa nilang dalawa pero need pading Locked and Glued beat and time yung playing ko.

Yes bro. Exactly. If you know your pentatonic scale. Just look for the Root - minor 3rd - Fifth for minor chords and Root - major 3rd and Fifth for major chords. For example: Aminor : Root - A, Minor 3rd - C, Fifth - E.  If you combine them together as a chord they will form a A minor triad. Kahit anung note start ok lng as long as you have the 3 notes together. ECA-ACE-EAC etc  They are all over the neck kaya madami kang magagawa na triad chords and can experiment as well. :)

Yung rhythm na namin ang bahala sa (pag-strum ng) chords so most of the time, picking na lang ginagawa ko then depende sa bigat nung tugtugan kung mag-i-strum na rin ako. Then yung chords na gagamitin ko, ibang position ko kukunin. Ina-apply ko na rin ngayon yung mga natutunan kong chord inversions kay Nigel Hendroff. Minsan I try to play arpeggios using notes sa pentatonic box shapes, parang sa concept ng CAGED, with matching delay for ambient effect. Di rin naman kasi kailangan ng 3 note per string scale runs sa praise and worship kaya single-string major scale lead lines na lang ginagawa ko, tapos kapag upbeat ang kanta, I try to inject some bluesy pentatonic licks para mabigyan ng kulay yung music. Alalay lang din ako sa volume ko, I give my best in being sensitive sa level ng sound ko, I just want to blend with the band para maganda tugtog then increase my volume if needed (for some lead lines and solos). Minsan yung mga lead lines na ginagawa ko is binabase ko na lang sa melody ng kanta.  :)

chord inversions mostly! perfect for support and filling in the gaps! and perfect for instrumentals as well, I generally don't like doing line solos (mainly because i'm not good at it), but I use chord inversions and stack the overdrive to get my guitar stand out from the rest.. it makes the instrumental more, ear-friendly for conservative pastors at the same time you can rock it out hard like doing a solo, after all you are only doing "chords"

lots and lots of delay!
You don't choose the guitar, it chooses you.

If at any point in time you cannot afford a particular guitar, don't play it. If it chooses you, you have to buy it.  If you simply can't beg, steal, or borrow, you will eventually die of a broken heart..

Depends. Minsan kasi kailangan ng song na yung egtr ang magdala ng song, specially sa mga fast and heavy songs. Tapos sa slow worship songs, fill in the blanks lang, tapos minsan stomp on the dirt para ma-accentuate yung force ng song.  Minsan din naman kailangan maging iba ang tipa mo sa acoustic or other instruments. pwedeng same lang, mag iiba lang sa timing at dami ng notes para maging buo yung spirit ng song.  wala ako kasi masyado alam sa technique, kaya sinusundan ko na lang instincts ko.

ako most of the time improvised solo's. lalo na sa mga kanta ni Lincoln Brewster. Hindi ko kasi gusto ung attack ng mga solos nya, it feels like a guitar duel hahaha.

Best guide para makapulot ka ng technique na lagi mong magagamit is knowing your playing style first, then acquire a correct guitar tone that suites you then discover, just play around the frets you'll discover something new.
Wag sa oras ng rehearsal hahaha sa oras ng practice mo sa bahay.

may recent akong pinapractice, nag tune down ako sa DADGAD, tapos nag cacapo ako depending sa key. Simple lang ung chords kasi pag naka DADGAD, okay pang rhythm. na enjoy ko din sya sa personal worship time ko, kasi i can focus more on the actual worship than moving my hands across the fretboard. :)
