New to guitar.

by QuickTwist Sun Feb 24, 2013 11:16 pm

I just picked up my guitar and I suck. What do you think of this:

Cord progression: E,G something,C,D,F,C,G (something),E repeate

------------0----------------------3--------------------0--------------------3-----------------1------------0------------------0-------
--------0------0---------------3------3-------------1-----1-------------3------3----------1-----1------1-----------------0------0---
----1--------------1-------0-------------0------0------------0------2-------------2-----2----------2-------2--------1--------------1
-------------------------------------------------------------------0--------------------3------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------3------------------------------------------------------------3-----------------------------
0----------------------3------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------3--0-------------------

Repeat.

I'm open to constructive critisism.

I can find chords on guitar but I can't play worth a darn. I took a couple months of lessons, but didn't have the dedication to practice. I do, however, play piano and have a minor in music theory. Are all of these chords major? I assume they are since you didn't distinguish otherwise. E Major to G Major is kind of jarring because you have a G# in EMaj and then switch to G-natural. Good chord progressions have a structure and they flow well if there's a common note between one chord and the next. If you started with e-minor and moved to G (Maj OR Minor), that would flow better because G-natural is a common tone in both chords. Clear as mud?

@Lianie, So it doesn't work? I was looking at it in a numbers perspective and there seemed to be a pattern but I don't know if this means anything or not.

@Ric, I have no idea what you mean by that. Is it Good, Bad, Doesn't make sense?

I just played it one day and I thought it sounded cool.

Its not wrong if you wrote it and like it then let it be. You merely would have to be careful with more the one instrument playing the chords that no solos or whatnot over your progression then it will sound bad cause your contradicting your own progression but as it is your fine, if you do solo over it, just change keys each time you go to solo
