"The day when you pick up a guitar there's nothing coming through whatsoever. There's no new pieces or new ideas. And that's the sort of gift any creative person has. There's always that point when it might happen to you, when you're too old to pick the guitar up. And we're just trying to keep that day far, far away, and out of sight. " - Jimmy Page

Sorry If you have already answered this but - I'm having trouble playing notes with one hand, for example if with one hand I need to play fret 3 on the low E string as well as fret 15 on the high E string..how do you do that? I've been trying to just slide very quickly but I know that there is a way of just playing notes with one hand, I'm just not sure how

It’s fine, I’m here to always answer stuff and make posts lol

So from what I understand you want to either slide from the 3rd fret on the e string so the 15th fret E string or you just want to play both notes really quickly
I actually took out my guitar and tried to do it (what song requires this omg) but it’s physically impossible to slide from the low e string to the high E string like unless you’re using a bottleneck or your entire finger so I suggest jumping from string to string. I mean I’ve been soloing for a bit, and what I do when I have long stretches like that (The Unplugged version of the Layla solo by Eric Clapton has one jump from the 5th fret D string to 13th fret E string and I just jump).
Just practice it slow is all I can really suggest maybe just with your middle finger on the low e 3rd fret, don’t let your hand come up too far off the fret board and attack the E string on the 15th fret. In fact don’t be so extreme at first. Take it easy do 3rd fret e string to 3rd fret E, then 3rd fret e to 4th fret E etc…
Idk I think jumping like that just comes in feeling the rhythm and soloing like in the Layla example. Check out the way this guy does it. It isn’t v smooth, but it’s something.

I hope I was of some help, and if you feel like I could be clearer definitely feel free to ask, I love helping; you guys don’t know:D

I'm having trouble with the G chord(320033). I'm trying to play "Time of Your Life," but when I try to play a G chord, it's dull and it lacks brightness. I don't know what's wrong, could you give me suggestions?

-Sorry it took me a bit to reply

Hmm, is it just that cord? It could be that your hand is slanted. Make sure it’s straight and that all your fingers are positioned between the frets on every note your fretting. You might be dulling out the sound with your palm as well. Just try straightening your wrist when you play the G, make sure you’re using the proper fingering. And if anything try the simplified version of it (320003) see how it works

I hope this helped, and as always, if you need anymore help, or for me to clear things up my ask box is always open! and I’ll try to answer ASAP ofc

I've played guitar for around 5 years, and I'm 16 now. I'm just wondering how I keep It fresh and fun as I have so much passion for it. I can do chords, barre chords, picking, etc with ease now and I don't find songs an obstacle anymore and get bored easily after the first few play throughs...

Guitar is such a vast world full of different styles, man. To keep it fun, and fresh, I’d say find a style you’re not familiar with, and familiarize yourself with it. If you play blues and slide guitar, learn some Irish folk songs in different tunings with strange picking patterns, and if you already do that, get into Spanish guitar, classical guitar etc. because it will improve you as a guitarist, and keep you learning new things if that’s what you want. Plateauing seems to be a big problem for some of us (including myself) but lately I guess I’ve been working on better ear training (which you can try too. It’s a pain in the butt, but it makes you better). If anything, pick your favorite guitar player, and try to master their albums one at a time (my brother does that with Metallica), and personally I’ve been doing it with Houses of the Holy (or at least trying to)
And if you already did that…there are so many guitarists to choose from to learn from.

I hope that was of some help. Trust me I have the same problem. I find Jimmy Page’s earlier rhythm stuff p easy, but then I got to his later stuff and it blew my mind lol (as heard in my audio post practicing Achilles Last Stand omfg lol). If anything, classical/spanish guitar is an obstacle…reignite your passion, my friend. If there’s anything else I can help you with, the ask box is always open.
