I'm a self taught multi-instrumentalist who loves to blend rock and electronic music. I play mostly guitars but also piano, keyboards, bass, harmonica, flute, darbuka, a bit of drums, trumpet and clarinet. I used extensivly Reaper and have now worked in Live for a fair amount of time. I sing too. My tastes are extensive, I'm especially found of Satie, Chopin, Bach, Radiohead, Squarepusher, Muse, the Prodigy etc...

comment Good exercise for precision in picking (with pick)?
Finger picking? Do you play arpeggios or riff? I would suggest a perfect position (back ,arms and hand) or/and depending on the type of music you play, to put your pinky on the guitar top as a pivot.

comment Learning how to be a good rhythm guitarist before becoming a lead guitarist, where to start?
Man, sorry about that, I've messed up. The semitone movement is between C (root of I) and B (third of V). I've corrected my answer. The good news is if you spotted that error, you're understanding it right!

comment How to play together online?
I'm not sure there's any chance to have a latency that would allow you to play together as a group. I would just work colaboratively on a track, shared via Dropbox for example, and would keep the cam sessions to share riffs, ideas and suggestions and talk about each others works and versions.

comment Learning how to be a good rhythm guitarist before becoming a lead guitarist, where to start?
I edited my answer to try and be more thorough, though it is indeed a huge topic. By the way, you could play the interval strictly chronologicaly or in the opposite directions. (I guess the fact that English is not my native language doesn't help)

comment Should i buy guitar effects even If I'm a beginner?
I do not agree. It is a lot more difficult to sound clean with distortion because every little mistakes does make a lot more unwanted sound. As I said, for me distortion is a different instrument, and if it's the way you want to play, the sooner you get at it, the better.

comment Drum set made from towels/pillows
+1. To get yourself use to the resistance and bounciness (or rather lack of) of towel and pillow would be terrible and counter-productive.

comment Should barré chords have an acute accent on the E?
Well it obviously comes from the French so either, the é is to be kept as in "cliché" or maybe the word evolved differently in your countries, which happens all the time. Either way, I'm French so I guess I'm not on the most suited to answer this question.

comment What is a good solo to learn in the major scale?
Even though it's not rock (and that's why I comment instead of answering), moto perpetuo By Paganini (the violin part obviously) is a great exercice to learn the C scale and even to learn to sight read because of its very few alterations.

comment Can't feel meter when playing
I think it's the right direction, at least it was for me. But it requires a lot of practice. I think learning a percussion instrument. And definitly singing. A percussion instrument involves only rythm and nothing else, so it's easier and most effective to focus on meter. And singing is the opposite, only focuses on melody, so it should solve your other problem. No need to be mariah carey, but there's a reason a lot of jazzmen sing while they play.

comment Does proper technology exists for guitar accompaniment design for guitarists who play alone?
Using live to do some looping and put drum beats is rather elementary and not so hard to do. And it's much more flexible than stomboxs loopers, which requires much precision. With live you can edit your loop afterward. Not that hard.

comment Is it possible to learn Flamenco guitar on a steel-string guitar? Will it sound right?
Even though it wouldn't sound at all like flamenco, rasgueados is the only way you can achieve fast triolet rythms without a pick. I know that's not the topic of the question, but with proper nail care and technique, rasgueados doesn't hurt at all on metal strings and can allow one to play all type of rock and metal rythms without having to use a pick. I know I do. And it allows your right hand to be fully free from a pick, hence go from picking to multifinger-tapping in one shot.
