Howsit Oaks... So like I started playing guitar about 5 years ago, at first I used to practice daily. I joined a band in high school, and then some shit happened in my life so I stopped playing, not completely just rarely. out of 100 (100 being Jeff Lumis (I know he's not the best) and 1 being someone who just started playing, I would rate my playing about a 20. ( I cant sweep for ssshhhhiiiiittt)  

So My Question is; Where should I start learning to play metal guitar? How should I go about it? (what scales to learn, if I should attempt to learn notation and any other advice.)

Learning songs is hard on my part because I only can get into playing songs I listen to, and for the most part a lot of the stuff I listen to is too advanced for my skill level.

I really want to play rhythm guitar kinda deathmetal/deathcore...  

I have written songs in the past year with my limited skill but I want to learn more. The songs I have learnt previously are really rusty and half assed.

I thought I'd mention I love the Black Dahlia Murder, and my goal is to be able to play one of their songs before the end of the year.


Thanks for reading!

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!
