hey guys :
I listen to death metal(tech death) a little like Necrophagist but I never tried to played these stuff on guitar, I've always wanted to play this kind of riffs on guitar but I wasn't able to, my imagination on the fretboard is limited to hard rock or heavy metal.
but there's a little problem: I have a six string guitar and tuned half step down(I'm not willing to change it).
forgot to mention I'm somehow good at soloing so I don't need solos to learn(I have a cover on youtube to Necrophagist's Stabwound)

(from a personal experience) I think the more I learn from songs from a specific genre, I'll have more vocabulary to compose in this genre,because I started from blues(I still like it)

so what do you recommend me to start learning? I don't mind hard songs, but not seven or eight strings, or dropped tunning(standard tuning or half step down or whole step down maximum).
Thanks.


Note: I'm an instrumental guitarist, I don't care about lyrics.

You're in luck where most tech death is in D standard or similar.

Some songs in the same genre but aren't cripplingly hard to play (apart from the Revocation one), if you have Guitar Pro or similar:

I'd check out some riffs in this song but its on a 7 string, although they can be adapted to 6 and are really challenging riffs

Try these for more real challenges:

I think that Death would be a good start. I think they play in D Standard. You could always get a program like guitar pro. That way you could learn any song that you want as long as you started slow. It's really helpful because you can slow it down as much as you need and gradually speed it up until you can play it full speed.

I agree,
