how would you go about learning a new genre? im gonna try out for this band next friday (scene, hardcore kinda stuff), but ive been mainly a progressive/fingerstyle guitarist for the 6 years that ive played. so id like some advice from you smarties.
thanks.

Listen to the music and start learning some songs you like. You'll pick up on licks and techniques that you often see, and it should generally show in your playing style, naturally.

why not apply what you know from progressive fingerstyles to little girl hardcore and be different.

What specific genre do you want to learn? It helps to start somewhere then maybe that one genre you choose will lead you to learn and explore to the sub-genres as well.

theory. once you understand the basic tonality of a genre or style you can pretty much tackle it. i got roped into playing a country show for a benefit once. i read a brief article and listened to a few records. going from the prog idiom to that of the hardcore should not be all too difficult stick with phygrian modes and power chords. accents are ussually pinch harmonics and tritones on the third beat and odd meters will rarely be an issue except in the more demanding breakdowns

3 steps to learning any genre:

1) Listen
2) Learn
3) Emulate


^ this

and since you have only a week, the "learn theory" option isn't really going to do you much good.

Learning some songs in that genre is the quickest and surest why to get a handle on what they are doing.
shred is gaudy music

thats the beauty of it, its an unknown territory, so if you happen to find a place for it, it will set you apart, thats the only think about modern hardcore that i like, its totally up to you, ive seen ska hardcore, rap core, jazz hardcore, folk hardcore. you can really do anything with it.

edit: yeah lol i love the pit but asking a question there not related to missile silos, killing women, how amazing petrucci is , or fapping your better off somewhere else lol
