well put my index on the 8 and ring on the 10 and mute the D string with my indexfinger by moving it a bit downwards and 13 16 with index and pinky and last 17 x 14 with index and pinky with muting the g-string again

don't know if i got the tab right , but it's a bit messed up:D

hope this was what you needed

yeah, the best way to play the F octaves i think is to use your index (i) finger to play fret 8 and to mute the D, B and high E strings, use your ring (a) finger to play fret 10, and use your middle (m) finger to mute the E string.


m i i a i i
E ------------x
B ----------x-
G -------10----
D -----x------
A ---8--------
E -x----------


This way allows you to strum the F octave without worrying about hitting other strings.

And yes I know i've used right hand fingering notation for the left hand! :P

Hope this helps.

ps I use the same shape for power chords with the root on the A string, except for I use my 3rd and 4th fingers to fret the D and G strings.

not sure really. i just find it easy to rest your 2nd finger on the low E string round about the 9th fret. after all, its not doing anything else when you use that shape. You can mute the E string with your index finger, but I personally find it easier this way, and i think its worthwhile giving it a try.

to play the F on the g string on the d string, then you'll have to fret the 15th fret, which means you'll have a impossibly large gap between the 8th and 15th frets. you can play an A octave by playing the A string open and the 7th fret on the D string.

It might sound hard at first but its a really easy way to strum octaves fast without hitting other strings accidently. try using that shape, making sure that the strings that are meant to be muted are muted, and the F notes are ringing clear. Then you could start on the 3rd fret (C) and go up the C major scale C D E F G A B C using frets 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 15 on the A string:


C D E F G A B C
E x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--|
B x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--|
G 5--7--9--10-12-14-16-17-|
D x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--|
A 3--5--7--8--10-12-14-15-|
E x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--|


Check out Dave Navarro-era RHCP. The album One Hot Minute has loads of octave solos like this, for example "My Friends" and "Tearjerker". Loads of bands use octaves though, as its a good way of adding depth to a melody.
