Sorry to do this here - but how can I cancel?

Almost every single time-based purchase on the internet is a subscription, and when you sign up, you agree to auto-renewal. That is how 99% of service-based commerce on the internet works. And only SOME countries require you to be notified that your renewal date is approaching. Just last week I had to cancel an annual subscription I haven't used in two years because I saw the charge on my credit card bill - I must have missed it last year. My point was that my annual Legend did NOT auto-renew, so I was assuming we didn't do that here.

As for "being a douche" and "denying the guy's wishes," I don't run the finances of the site, but I can tell you this is not something that has ever been done here. I don't know if there's anything written into the code to address it, and I don't want to assume there is. That's why I added the code/money people to the thread.

I'm no implying that people have been rude however like you just said people forget things. You wanna be for the community? Make exceptions. Show people theres a reason to come back.

Sorry to do this here - but how can I cancel?

Hard time.believing its change on its own. I mean synner could be a real douche and deny the guys wishes depending on when it renewed itself. But I'd imagine a place for the community would understand situations like this where something just renewed and took someones rent payment away. Which happens daily to people without realizing it.

It is either, depending on what you signed up for, but I don’t believe it auto-charges. I know it doesn’t for the annual. I don’t get involved in the money changing hands part, though.

Introduction To Simple Chords – Em & G – Lesson 12

Well, if we go purely on theory, its often about the placement of the third. So, for exemple a chord is made from a root, its third and its fifth. If we take this exemple, what will determine if its Major or minor is the placement of the third.

So if its Major, its gonna be the root, Major third and fifth. If its minor, its gonna be the root, minor third and fifth. The minor third is one half step (so one fret lower) than the third. here is an exemple

This is an E Major:

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

This is an E minor:

-0-
-0-
-0-
-2-
-2-
-0-

just notice that its the difference in one single note between those two. And the only note that changed is the third of the D major scale which is a G# in major and a G in minor!

In a purely sonically perspective, its true, the major chords sound happier while the minors one sound sadder! I hope it helps, dont hesitate to ask if my explanation wasnt clear

Minor 3rd are the definition that makes either the sound Happy or Sad/Mellow. Or Other way making the Chords either Major or minor just by flatting the 3rd

Example i’m using is in the key of C. Reason i’m using C as a reference point is because there’s no # or flat. Easier to explained.

KEY IN C -

C D E F G A B C (Notes)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8(Degree)

W W h W W W h (Interval)

Formula in the Key of C

C Maj : 1 3 5 = C E G (Happy Sound)

C minor : 1 b3 5 = C Eb G (Sad or Mellow Sound)

In any keys ur in… the 3rd define major or minor.

How you go deeper by counting is by using intervals in another terms by simply refers to the distance between two notes.

Degree of Scale is in C Maj:

(Degree) (Name of Interval)
C - C = Unison
C - D = Maj2
C - E = Maj3rd
C - F = Perfect 4th
C - G = Perfect 5th
C - A = minor6th
C - B = Maj7th
C - C = Perfect Octave.

*This is just Theory but when we understand this we can really understand almost all 12 keys easily as well buddy.

With regards on how many sharps or flat every key will hv. Lesson Circle of Fifth Papa Gate will elaborate, explained more and in depth without doubt. Keep Rocking buddy! 😊🤘✊

Introduction To Simple Chords – Em & G – Lesson 12

Light top Heavy bottom Ernie Ball strings, .10 - .52, something like that.
I saw it here on the site somewhere but maybe it's different
Usually when u playing in drop tuning… ur need heavy gauge either .10 to 52 or .11 to .54 or mix string where heavy gauge goes to .54 and high gauge to .10 reason being when u drop tune or open tune u need that heavy Chuck warmer tone kinda Clarity and not forgetting if ur on Standard tuning and u drop to Drop C.. make sure ur intonation need to be readjust reason being due to the bow or corvex of the truss rod. ☺️ As of Me Syn Gate string not pretty sure. If sweaty palm he might used Slinky Ernie ball thou. But whatever it is. The best way for a guitarist is to try a few brands of string and u will definitely know what is to ur liking and comfortability. 😅🙏🏼🤘✊

Hello Everyone

I appreciate that man. Learning guitar has been something I’ve wanted to do for a longgg time, and I’m glad I finally am. I remember being back in grade school and drooling over the Syn Custom. Needless to say nothing has changed lol.

Also a shot a day keeps the doctor away, I’m pretty sure. I’m looking forward to participating anyway I can. Slowly I’ll get better and hopefully this time next year I’ll be posting an Afterlife cover.

Fcuk yea!! Go for it. We are all here to support u in ur new adventure journey.! Trust me all Artist we looked upon were like us at 1 point. So u never know maybe u will be the next generation Artist where ppl look up at u and all man.! We can’t predict the future but we can strive to be one. My philosophy and motto “ Treat urself as an Artist even if u aren’t” its like mental replacement so you will start having ur own style , image and etc. No doubt when it comes to influences.. Syn will always be 1 of them man!

How do I get in contact with Syn Gates?

With the responses hes gotten I'm not sure hed really feel welcome sharing anymore. And let's be real not everyone follows everyones music. People definitely pick and choose who they wanna comment or like in the riff section.

Not that I'm saying screaming for syn to check out your stuff Is good you also arent gonna get anywhere asking the site members. Best thing I can suggest is just post it. And maybe people will check it out. Most wont have much to say though so I wouldn't be hoping for good criticism. A select few will give you a.good run down. But that's if they notice it there.

Best advice I can give is just post it and move on. That's the best place to have syn see it.

Seriously this can be related to just bare with me…

Dude that was like incredibly coincidence as i speak out of my experience whereby u giving this video as a proof that its all connected buddy. Much appreciate! ☺️🙏🏼🤘✊

My late buddy and me was literally self taught and that time there’s no You Tube man. We hv to secretly go to the library under music section or tower records, Borders or HMV and take that opportunity to listen to those latest album way before A7X man. I remember we went to the library and took whatever notes scales or anything we wish to learned and wrote it on napkin and papers man. That’s how desperate we were willing to go. Am thankful nowadays theres You Tube to improve and make more research on stuff i doubt or dont understand. And when we went all this big shot A star above the sky bands like A7X, Dragon force, Slash, YJM came to Singapore for tour i always be like shit man…! I cant see how they perform and especially Syn gates when A7X 1st ever tour to Singapore was at @Fort Canning” i was there but Dwamn i cant see much of how hes playing… Somehow inwish hSyn might consider cming to Singapore for a Guitar Clinic session. Hahah. In my Fcuking dream.!
Again.. Cheers for that Video. Johnny Christ and Zacky are cool as well. No doubt!

How do you make practice enjoyable?

That’s a great question. I used to be in that phase. So as a lefty my creativity start to kick in and obviously as a guitarist I wish to be a great player 1 day “Hopefully”… hahaha. So what i did was 2. Things. No.1 I find someone who hv the same interest and direction where i wanna be.. and make a deal that every week we learnt the same stuff and not to debate or compete with each other but to make thngs interesting and fun as nobody wants to be a fluke when they say they will do it. No.2 Both of us keep exchanging music knowledge theory and make a plan out of it on how are we going to execute this over beer or coffee (Black) haha and promising together not to have debate or argument whose better and respect each other opinions and ideas.

So basically when i did that we recorded our progress each day as of what we have planned on learning be it a “Chop/Phrase” from our fav cover solo, riff, new scales or picking technique; and we send thru and fro to each other. Without both of us realised we were actually having fun and progress together and there’s no judgement or envy between us for who gets it faster or getting it better. The bedt advise is to find someone who you can relate in the same direction as u wish to be and then u be having fun. Btw just by noodling in front of tv is a fun where too to develop ur muscle memory.

But sadly a gd buddy of mine died and a piece of me died with him too till to date and i can’t relate myself playing with anyone with the same “Chemistry” like what i had before.

Conclusion or the Main Point is like going to the gym. “Buddy System” where a gd friend will push u and u will push him or her together and hv fun.

Trying out new things is always an option, like new chords, new style of playing, or trying to cover a song you never thought of covering. Also, setting small reasonable goals each practice session acn delay the process of losing interest in practicing. What I do is, I just start playing tons of breakdowns with my amp on full blast for 5-10 monutes, just to refresh and then go back to practice again.

💯 % agree with Sayonil Mitra. Music is an art and an expression of urself without words but thru emotions. scientifically our brain can only absorb maximum only 10min of practise or study. Its a Journey and ur the captain of ur own Ship. Inspire urself by always place ur guitar nearest to u.. and wake up have the habit to motivate urself by listening to ur fav songs as a start off day before u dive into training mode. As of myself.., no joke at this very moment.. every single day I’m listening to Ludwig,Batch, and etc. listening to Vivaldi, Sonata movement 3 and so on and forth. Just to get me pumped up and hype. ☺️🤘✊🐰🐇🐇🐇🐰

It's all about the purpose of why you're picking up the guitar in the first place, for example "One day I wanna play guitar in a band on stage".

If you're playing guitar merely as a hobby, you might not get as much satisfaction unless you take the hobby as a form a relief from the everyday life.

It's always good to have a purpose so that we know why we are doing what we are doing, and everything that comes after is part of the process of achieving what we want ;)

This weekend I plan to hit up another song I have planned. I'm still debating on what song that may be. Brutality has so many harsh grinding riffs that it's hard.to pinpoint a good acoustic riff without picking a song that was cleanly played. I'm thinking maybe famous lie. But even that song has clean parts everywhere.

How do I get in contact with Syn Gates?

Rather than be like “Hey Syn look at my music”, maybe try and be like “Hey everyone look at my music I’ve created! And suggestions / criticism would be appreciated to help better myself in my musical career”. Synner is about everyone’s guitar journey and helping each other out 👏🏻
Now don’t get me wrong, Syn and PG are here and they see what goes on. But if that’s the only reason why you’re here, it’s missing the point of all of this
