Hi, I have absolutely no idea in what forum this should be posted in. Sorry if it is at the wrong place.

The songs i'm talking about: metal songs that don't just use powerchords. Examples of what I mean: Downfall by Exodus, Requiem and For Your Malice by Lamb Of God, and Trivium does it alot too, for example The Crusade (Song, not album, of course) and another song wich I forgot but I still remember how to play it:

-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-------------9---x-x-9---8---x-x-6-------------
-8---x-x-6---8---x-x-9---6---x-x-6---5---x-x-5-
-6---x-x-6---7---x-x-7---4---x-x-4---6---x-x-6-
-4---x-x-4---------------------------3---x-x-3-


And these are some chords used in The Crusade:

-13--12--10-----------------
-15--12--10--12--5--7--6--5-
-14--13--10--9---7--7--7--7-
-------------9---0--0--8--8-
----------------------------
----------------------------


Some of the chords are probably just powerchords, played in a way that you don't immediatly see, but that is not the point right now. Chords with a twist. I know that most of the chords I mentioned in the songs, are just normal barchords, but with a few notes cut out (the intro from For Your Malice, begins with a standard D minor chords, with the E string cut out of it, but that's still 'good' for what I'm searching for). So, as many songs as you can find. The chords can be 2 fingers, 3 fingers, it doesnt really matter, as long as it's in a song, preferably metal/rock. I don't care about tuning for now. Any ideas?

The first riffs is just a standard powerchord with a 9th added.

Try Holy Wars by Megadeth, the main verse riff is a bit different. I dunno. Vast majority of metal utilises powerchords for the most part, it's hard to find anything that doesn't.
I guess the verse riff from Crazy train is a bit different as well.

Well there's Snow (Hey Oh) by the Chilis, uses a few triad chords I think. Crazy Train by Ozzy uses some in the verse, a lot of Smashing Pumpkins stuff.. all I can think of off the top of my head.

Blood of the Scribe by Lamb of God, hell sic song to learn, and most of it doe'snt use powerchords, pretty difficult rythem, need to be able to pinch pretty well.
#9
look into Lamb of Gods stuff,
I try some devildrivers songs, especially from last kind words

And of course Nevermore (RIP)
After those solos its cool to take a break and play powerchords again

Opeth.

This is what I came here to post.

Check out most of their heavy catalogue; specific songs include Leper Affinity, Deliverance, Serenity Painted Death, and the Moor.

There are tons of songs by Opeth that use "exotic" chords (ie. something other than a power chord).
Axes:
2010 Carvin ST300C
1994 Jackson Soloist XL Professional
2008 "Jacksbanez"
2007 Gibson Flying V
2003 Epiphone Les Paul Plus

Amps:
Peavey 6505+ Combo
Peavey Classic 30
Peavey Vypyr 15

Gibson ES-137C
Parker P8EN
AC Custom Special P Bass

Dream Theater: Change of Season, Count of Tuscany, Endless Sacrifice, and tons more. Note: Songs might get quite long, but if you dont mind it then your good

Opeth: Blackwater Park.

probably a ton more but i havent learned and thing else by them yet, and same thing as Dream Theater...the song get quite long.

Scale the Summit: Pretty much any song, the use along of 5ths (power chords) with the 9th
as well as long of other cool, and some standard chords that all guitarist know.


Megadeth: Holy Wars, Hangar 18
Both are great for your metal solo chops!


GOOD LUCK MAN
