The intro to BTBAM's Informal Gluttony.
Quote by korinaflyingv
On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.
the only one i'm remembering right now is one in the beginning of Informal Gluttony by Between the Buried and Me

Let's make this the Pit's motto:

"Forever alone, together"

I can't give you any specific licks, but I can give you the most common scale that western music uses to sound Arabic. Just lower the 2nd degree and the 6th degree of the major scale(Just in case...
E-8--9--------------------------- ...not the best tab, so I hope you can read it.)
Harmonic minor or phrygian dominant and you're set.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.
Vision of Division by The Strokes has some licks in the middle of it. It probably doesn't start off sounding like it would, but it does.
The Project Hate is a metal band that uses a metric fuckton of Middle Eastern sounding riffs in their arrangements. If you don't mind that it's metal and very blatantly anti-Christian, they'd be worth checking out.

The intro to Unas Slayer of the Gods by Nile is super easy to play and sounds all exotic.

Sounds like poop shredding it though, at least on my guitar. The distortion doesn't have the kind of snarl it does on the album.

This one?

Parts of it sound a little middle eastern to me.

For the first 47 seconds, that's the most boring song I've ever heard.

If you want Middle-Eastern sounding stuff, look up Consider the Source. They are a progressive instrumental Middle-Eastern/Indian metal band. Epic beyond belief.

In terms of scales, Phrygian Dominant is good. It's the fifth mode of the harmonic scale, or you can just think of it as Phrygian mode with a natural third instead of flat.

If you want some really interesting stuff, go with the Phrygian Major/Byzantine scale. Its the Phrygian mode with both a natural third and natural seventh. Leads to some crazy chromatic runs.

What's all this poser Middle Eastern stuff here? American rock bands, mostly. Try this
