look at extended chords - particularly maj7s and add4s - and learn some songs by related bands. Look into fingerpicking and arpeggiating those sorts of chords played in predominantly major progressions, and make good use of fast slides in higher-register licks/riffs. Many of these bands use open tunings, too, so look into what common ones are used.

A good song to get a feel for it is Never Meant by AF.

tune to open c and feel it

your time will be better spent falling asleep with the mattress on top of you missing the blanket that was emma's love than learning dork guitar things

Start at the beginning.

Get familiar with a lot of alternate tunings and listen to a TON of first and second wave emo.
