look up classical scales. I assume there are neoclassical scales, but that kind of ruins the entire idea of it actually being classical.

LMAO, it's funny but it's true...

Basically, just go check out Mr.Loomis_shred's thread "playing neo-classical"

There's some info in there that should help out a little bit in terms of getting into a neo-classical sound.

I can't believe none of you have mentioned the harmonic minor scale.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

neoclassical could use a major scale, or any other scale...just use it in a classical way

You need to know your scales and theory down pat. You should also know how to write in standard notation, (it's easier than just remembering everything you come up with on the spot )

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

All I did was learn a bit of everything. Then, you don't have to limit yourself to just neo-classical. You're trying to start too big, I think.

You need to have a very good concept and backround in musical theory and you need to practice for several hours a day, but if you like that kind of music, the results can be well worth it. Start off by learning actuall classical peices arranged for guitar (Paganini is a favorite of neo-calssical guitarists). This will heklp you a great deal to learn how the theory is actually applied, then once you have a good understanding of how to apply theory to music in the contect of the guitar start to compose your own peices.
