anyone have an idea on what this is called:
what is it called when you play a lead/rhythm style like amon amarth? playing heavy notes and skipping strings to play high notes, makes you sound like two guitars. look up guardians of asgaard by amon amarth if you don't know what im talking about, skip to about 2:11 for the best example of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD5tU-5NXd4

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

It's a pedal riff. You pick a note, which is going to be called the pedal tone from here on out. The pedal tone is used to give a context to the notes that follow it. The pedal tone in this case is the lower note, which is used to suggest a chord.

If the people in MT didn't give you that answer, then the regs must have been off drinking. I can't see them not telling you that.

Agreed on all accounts as to the quality of the music and the video. That video made a song I already couldn't stand worse. For more discussion of this band

They're pedal tones or pedal riffs.

Gibson LP traditional and DC standard, PRS S2 Custom 24, MIA Standard Strat, Schecter Banshee 7
EVH 5153, Orange TV50H 2-2x12's

Thunderstruck by ac/dc is a well known example, Ts.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

I think you can call it metalcore too I suppose. Yeah the type of riff is a pedal tone riff where you 'pedal' a tone continously whilst playing other varied notes in the middle as stated above.

Am I the only one who doesn't think it's a pedal riff? At least not by definition.

The low note changes throughout the riff, so technically it's not actually a pedal. It's sort of like chugging the root of the chord your playing in with.

What's with all the intolerant ass wholes in this thread needlessly bashing on the music this guy listens to? I for on love Amon Amarth, all though most of that is due to the fact that I love mythology and that's what most of their songs are about.

Maybe it's his friendly demeanour and cross-posting that make people so amiable to him.

It can be referred to as a "polyphonic melody" or a "compound melody." It is a monophonic texture but leaps imply a 2-voice counterpart.
