Been trying to write some stuff and I dunno I like the way this one sounds. I was kinda going for a prog metal/technical death metal riff. It doesn't sound that great, but it was the best tone I can get out of a spider

You're probably wondering why I have the camera looking at the TV instead of myself. Well I wanted you guys to judge with your ears instead of your eyes. I have nothing else to record it with otherwise I wouldn't have used a cam. Also I don't want people looking at what I'm playing

From what I can hear, it sounds pretty good. Doesn't sound like Tech Death in the least, but it could probably pass for Prog metal.
My gear:
Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels
B-52 LG-100A 4x12 half stack
Rogue LX405 Bass
Yamaha classical
Some sort of acoustic Squier
Boss Flanger
Lyon Chorus

lol do you seriously play the guitar with the TV on and that volume? the music is of no genre just notes and tv noise
I had to get a replacement after I broke my G string. What a pain in the ass!

umm wut's wrong with you? you ask people for help discerning what genre your song is, yet you cannot seem to take 1 second of your time to turn off the damn t.v.

you phail so hard

I think you should have turned the TV up more.

Dean MS STD V w/ Dimebucker

If you sped it up it'd sound like an Every Time I Die riff.


So then it sounds like metalcore?

The TV isn't THAT loud. And I didn't want to turn it off in case I miss a huge play.



You can mute a TV. You should know this, you did it at the beginning of the video.

It just sounded like a series of 1-3-4 patterns to me tbh. Not like tech death, prog, anything.

It sounded like a sloppy scale exercise.

bit math-y, a bit all-over-the-place.

i guess what i'm trying to say is that it isn't structured random notes like you get in prog stuff. it sounded less prog than inexperienced, tbh.

Well I thought it was good. Still good to get others opinions tho.

So then anything I can do to make it sound more proggy/tech death-ish?

well, either you go all over the place and make it totally out there and morph it into something from a Between The Buried And Me album or you refine it, make it more melodic and catchy, and put about 49768671984728647289468 extra notes in there and call it tech death.

it needs to be more extreme... more interesting. it's just an ordinary riff right now.

I too think this young man could join Decapitated.

Nah, he's too good. He'd outplay them and they'd get pissed off and quit.

lol @ the one star ratings

There is no pleasing you people


Well, what did you expect? You put up a crap vid and expect good ratings.

We'd be pleased if your vid didn't waste our time.

Who gives a **** about the video? This is why I don't like putting up videos on youtube. Is the riff good or not? And what genre does it sound like? That all I give a **** about.

And BTW as great as decapitated are, I think I'd rather join Necrophagist if I could play their ****. They always seem to be looking for guitarists too.

But it wasn't even a good riff.
