Okay, I know that y'all think that I may be jumping off of a lot of band wagons, but I am just trying to multi-task here. Does anyone know anything about playing acoustic metal? I am constantly hearing things like how there are certain sets of rules to follow when playing acoustic metal, but I don't know if there is any reality behind these statements. Any piece of information is appreciated.
play metal on your acoustig guitar?

it think its that simple if it sounds metal its metal nomatter what guitar you use
although chuggin on the low e doesnt sound nearly as brutal as it does on an electric gutiar
There are no rules. Listen to acoustic metal bands that you enjoy until you learn how to play in the style.
Well I believe one rule is "metal has distorted electric guitars". Another rule is "metal sound like shit on acoustic guitars".
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
