Hey guys,
I need alot of help lol.
I've been playing guitar for about 2 years now and I'm still having trouble making up Metalcore, Hardcore riffs. Could someone explain/teach me how and/or post some tabs please? I'll love you forever! (in a brotherly/sisterly way :P)

Thanks

i find youtube very helpful in learning new things. Just search for METALCORE RIFF and you'll see what im talking about, seriously.

Also type BOXXY and you'll learn a lot about 4chan.

You could try some Bring Me The Horizon songs. They play drop B and drop A#. Medusa is a good riffing song, and songs like Diamonds Aren't Forever and For Stevie Wonders' eyes only will help you with rhythm.

That's reported.

I Killed the Prom Queen made some good riffs back in the days. Bleeding Through too. Slayer made some stuff in Drop B, so did Slipknot.

Sorry i HAD to report you. Your comment is really really out of place.

IIT: Dont get stuck with the B tunning. I find more drop d and some c, but rarely B's. Well it doesnt change the composition process.

I don't think all there stuff is drop B, but I know for sure that "A cold day in hell" is in drop B. The opening riff is really awesome.

Dude, calm down, and if this is "your roommate" again, you better find some way to keep him the hell off of your account. I'm pretty sure in the rules it says ANYTHING posted by your account is your problem, you can't blame it on brothers/roommates/etc.

Also, to the TC.

Some scales you might find usefull to learn for -core stuff would be...

Locrian Mode, 1,b2,b3,4,b5,b6,b7.
Phyrgian Mode, 1,b2,b3,4,5,b6,b7.
Half/Whole Diminished Scale, E-F-G-G#-Bb-B-C#-D-E.

Also, the Harmonic Minor Scale is good, its the Natural Minor with a Major 7th degree.

Machine Head is one of the chuggiest, squealiest bands out there. They just do it well. What was your point again?

^Just recommending a band that uses Drop B tuning frequently, and that the TS could learn their songs for some ideas

Yes, they are. I'm a huge MH fan, and I know what they sound like.

Hell, they even consider themselves "metalcore," just not in the conventional sense.

I find it helpful to look at how bands that I listen to write their songs; oh and I also find it helpful just to play scales around my guitar to come up with a starting melody/idea to a song or riff. Check out the Harmonic Minor and and the Aeolian. OR just go here and and find a scale you think sounds cool. http://all-guitar-chords.com/guitar_scales.php
