Breakdowns. Lots and lots of breakdowns.

Metal, not hardcore

Make it really fast, or really slow. Use distortion and palm muting, usually a minor key, a few twin guitar harmonies, if you use cleans make sure it's creepy or epic arpeggios, and put some angst and rage into it. Listen to a lot more metal and it will rub off on you.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

depends on what type of metal you want to play.

Metal should just come naturally, play what your heart desires, don't force anything or it won't sound good.

You don't "learn" how to write music, douchebag, that defeats the whole fucking point. And, what The Frayed Ends said, just try as hard as you can to be this band and you'll be fine.

Tune to Drop J

Gain on 11

Wank
Quote by forsaknazrael
You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

Wow, who knew? No band that tunes to Standard is metal.

No it doesn't. tuning has little to do with heaviness, it's the passion behind the music, your tone, and the riffs themselves. Just tune to whatever tuning you're most comfortable in.

*turns profile on private*

EDIT: Exactly. Just turn up the volume really loud and you'll be good, TS, that's how it works.

start simple, then work your way into the crazy **** that most metalheadsa like doing. playing in a form of drop d usually helps with the heavy tunes.


because no one knows how to pedal an E string in standard...

Don't make jokes about it, it's a serious condition . I think this post is enough proof of that .

God of Sushi, I'm going to give you advice that may or may not appeal to your sense of rational thought.

Stop. Don't. Forget about it. Writing music is not in your future.

You came onto an internet forum asking for help on writing a genre of music. That in it self is enough to convince me and anyone worth their salt that the advice I just gave you is the best you'll ever get.

Exactly. This was essentially the first thing I said in this thread, albeit, much more crudely and more bluntly.

Everyone saying tune the guitars down: It doesn't really matter either way, but imo, anything that's tuned below C# sounds a bit 'trytobebr00tal'.

And if you have to ask how to play metal, go to wikipedia.
