First of all I'm not really sure if this is the right forum to post this in, so if it isn't, tell me and I'll delete it and repost it in the right one.

Anyway, I'm looking to experiment with playing more melodic music. I want to keep my music rock based and everything, but I want to get away from the heavy, crushing music style that some people see as talentless, and try more "Nice" sounding music. (NoHomo)

I need to know things like which tuning is best for melodic music (I know melodic chords and whatnot can be found/made in any tuning, but I find it true that some tunings are better suited for melodic music..

I also would like a few examples of melodic chords. I know a few but I want to make sure I know the right ones.

And also please mention any other tips you might have for me.

Thanks very much.
With enough money saved you will buy a new straw skirt and coconut bikini, a airplane ticket back to civilization and a large Mesa Boogie amp and a Gibson Explorer and shred the faces off with METALLICA!


Your tuning has absolutely no bearing on whether or not you can play "melodic" music...no matter how you tune a guitar you've still only got those same 12 chromatic pitches to work with.

Have a watch of these vids, they'll open your eyes (or should that be ears?)
