Melodic (Black?) Metal (GP5, GPX)

Started playing around and ended up writing this. It kind of sounds like black metal, but I don't think I'd really call it black metal. Either way, it's a LOT different than my other music.

I have one, it's not a bad amp by any means. It can get pretty loud (you can clearly hear it over somebody slamming on drums), I think it's a 65w. Its overdrive channel's a little weak, so you'll...

I'd say stop learning patterns, first. You end up teaching yourself a certain shape, and it gets hard to play anything outside that shape. That was the case with me, anyway. I did that for years, and...

I bought a body from a Jackson Dinky with nothing in it, and it was routed for a Floyd Rose. Will any FR fit, or would I need to get a specific one? Thanks! :3

Cannibal Corpse used Eb for a few albums I think.. So there's definitely nothing wrong with using it for death metal.

Tuning doesn't matter so much as tone when it comes to playing heavy.

I kind of agree with this, but wood type also has a lot to do with sustain, weight, and how well certain frequencies sound.

Mixing Active And Passive?

Is it possible to use an active AND a passive pickup in the same guitar? I've been thinking about putting an active in the bridge and a passive in the neck.

I use the earplugs I take to the firing range when I play drums. I'm not entirely sure what kind they are, but I can hear people talking just fine. I just use them to keep my ears from ringing.
