I do not know what type of "style" name you give this type of playing, i have called it "overlap guitar" as two guitarists play two differant rifs in two differant keys at the same time: Zacky and Synster gates from Avenged Sevenfold, do it in lots of there songs. An example of when it is played is in Beast And The Harlot when Gates plays the 1st solo, mid way through the solo Zacky and Gates play the "overlap guitar". On the album version i have (which idowloaded from itunes), the "overlap Guitar" starts at 2:09 and finnishes at 2:15.

My question is:
What is the technical term for this type of playing as i want to learn how it work so i can use it in some of my bands songs as i think it sounds fantastic?

Thanks
Andy

Yeah, harmonizing. Avenged Sevenfold do a lot of it using thirds. Just look up interval theory and you'll be able to nail the basic idea of it

This.


Off topic, just why do SO many people nowadays think of techniques as 'That thing that A7x does'? Sure, they got some good leads and songs, but why are they given credit for things people have done for many, MANY years?

Last night, one of my friends(who just started playing guitar a year ago) told me sweep picking was invented by Synyster Gates...


On topic again, just learn your theory.

Harmonising

They don't play in different keys, they play different notes of the same key that are in harmony with each other. Hence 'harmonising'

You've asked this before

Ts, learn the theory behind the major sclae, you'll need to understand that before you've got a hope of understanding harmonising.
Actually called Mark!
