hmmm, well, if u want a more metal sound, go for RATM. Or Try Stick To Your Guns, they're fuking great.

Or just do what everyone else is doing and just play breakdowns for 2 mins straight

do master of puppets, its a challenge but its not too hard. just skip the solo if you want.
#8
The philosopher and Crystal mountain by Death aren't too hard, plus they're in D, and Kreator has some easier songs that are in D standard. You can just skip the double bass drumming until your drummer gets a second pedal. There's also probably a lot of metalcore/nu metal in drop c but I don't listen to that stuff at all so I can't reccomend anything specific.

The best thing to do would be to tune back up to E and play some easier Metallica, Megadeth type stuff.

ok guys I don't know if this is the if this is the right thread to post this in, but i need songs for my trio to learn... we are kind of beginners and the drummer is too broke to afford a double bass pedal so we can't play anything requiring double bass work. We want to learn thrash metal (wth sreaming) ad other types of metal with low growls and grunts and no poser emo crap...we all hate that...Anyways, make the songs pretty easy and i have been playing guitar for 4 or 5 years on and off. and please make the tuning either drop c or d standard

first correct your spelling. Don't use IM speak on the forums.

You rely on a forum to pickyour songs? most thrash metal is not in drop C or in D standard, nor does it have screaming. You can play any song, however, in these keys just play it like you would normally. It will simply sound lower. What do you define as thrash metal? Thrash to me is Antrhax, Megadeth, Testament, Watchtower, etc etc. Those bands dont really have screaming vocals. or low growls. They have raspy voices. For beginners, I reccommend you pick a few songs for covers and than go from there so you can get your band tighter.
How about

For Whom the bell Tolls- Metallica
I don't wanna stop- Ozzy
Overkill- Motorhead

Also I think if you want to sound different and set yourself apart from everyone else stay well away from drop tunings either stay in standard d tuning Sepultura/Refuse resist or War for territory easy songs then challenge yourseives with Death. Spread the word man the more people who stay away from drop tunings the better our metal community will be. And drop tunes

Drop tunings are not whats killing Metal communities outright i think (that could be attributed to poser bands) but Standard tunings are definatly the way to go
#17
yeah man I probaly generalised to much on that i just think its hard to distinguish between drop tuned songs and bands it is like they all sound the same really almost like the idol tv shows popular for a few months then who?
#18

yeah man i flat out refuse to play any drop tunings I have been asked in the past to join various bands and found out their tunings I politely ask to tune to standard or D standard if not see you later. Im in a 3 piece now luckily with a guitarist who is as much against drop tunings as me so there is hope man
