what techniques and understanding do i need to know so i can play the styles of Unearth, Trivium and, All That Remains. Like how do they usually construct riffs and solos.
modes/scales for basic theory, a good understanding of sweeping, pinch harmonics, and the ability to play fast (shred style) also helps.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.
