what songs did all you guys find REALLY helped you learn? Also more specifically what metal songs helped you learn that sound?

Don't worry about saying "not songs, just improvising and learning the chords blah blah blah lol i know that stuff already, just for future reference lol)

Now that I almost had triplets down, I'm able to play metal songs a bit better. But I practice the same songs and I'm not sure what other songs to move into to gain more experience.

what if they're not metal songs
i learned alot from pink floyd
Fender MIA Strat w/EMG SA's
Fender Super 60
Boss RT-20 Rotary Sim
Ibanez AD-9 Analog Delay
EHX Big Muff

"Doctor Kindly Tell Your Wife
That I'm Alive, Flowers Thrive
Realise, Realise, Realise"
yeah i was just saying songs in general and added in more specifically in case someone has songs that apply to the sound i want. but i know not to limit myself so yeah of course not only metal songs

are you looking for some song suggestions?
*reported*... twice in one reply!

OH NOES!!! Theowy is scawY!!!
What I think are more important than songs that help you learn (because any song can help you learn, as long as you analyze them) are songs that you WANT to play. If you can get a riff down that is fun to play, you going to play your rig more often and get better.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.
I'm still a bit new to metal method, and these few helped me along the way.

Paranoid - Taught me hammer ons w/ powerchords.

Iron Man and Heven and Hell - How to slide a Powerchord well

Weezer songs - the art of downpicking to weird time signatures.
1981 Gibson Les Paul Custom (Black Beauty)
1980 Marshall JMP 2204
Master! Master!

But, yeah, we have a thread dedicated to this type of question at the top of the forum. Please delete this and post there.

Also, the triplet and the gallop are very different; you should read the link in my sig about the gallop so you're not confused. Too many people think the gallop is a triplet.
Well I learned 'Blood Bound' and that was great for getting my fingering better. Plus it sounds great. I'd recomend 'Run to the Hills' as well. I haven't learnt it yet but it's an amazing sng and you can't go wrong woith IRON MAIDEN
From Here to Eternity? You can go wrong.

Edit: Anyway, as I said, there is a sticky for this topic, so I'm going to find Elv ( ) and see if he'll close this or merge it.
