dude, they aren't hard. they all have the same basic techniques (on their only chasing safety atleast) just get tabs and learn a bunch of there songs until you can grasp the songwriting they do i guess.

First of all, listen to some better bands. Pretty much any band in the Christian music spectrum isn't going to bring anything new or innovative to the table. Anyway...

Try learning some really technically accomplished bands like them, like, As I Lay Dieing (IMHO a good band).

A few techniques that bands like that use:

Pinch harmonics
Triplets
Vibrato
Triplets
Octaves

Read up on those techniques, and they should give you some skills that you need to play that style of music. Good luck.

Sure they are. That explains why their albums have Parental Advisory stickers on them, and I can't find them anywhere in Christian Music stores. Suuure they are.

"It all started 2000 years ago!" then a lot of unintelligable screaming about jesus.

That's a song of a friend's hardcore band, MyChildren MyBride... sorry if you've heard of 'em. Nice guys, old friends of mine, but man... I can't stand their music.
I have an addiction...

what do you mean by triplets? what are they? (they must have been important enough for you to write them twice, lol)

I hate being a dick but if you like these bands (which I'm assuming you do) why don't you figure it out yourself, listen to their records and try to figure out what they're doing, trust me it's the best way to learn.

Triplets are a kind of note rythym where you play three notes per beat. Look it up.

And yes, they are important.

99.9% of them seem suicidal....

Put this in EVERY song:


d---------------------------------------
a---------------------------------------
f---------------------------------------
c--0------------------------------------
g--0-----------8---7---8---10---8---7---
c--0-------0-0---0---0---0----0---0-----


and there's your basis for just about ever hardcore/metalcore song.

They suck..

Just kidding. If you want to write "screamo songs" You have to write the song around the vocal harmonies (one guys singing and one guy screaming). Dont forget the two step break down either.

A quick explination on triplets-

Regular 4/4 timing-- one-and-two-and-3-and-4and
triplets (3/4 timing) one-trip-let-two-trip-let-3-trip-let-4-trip-let

If you do it fast, it gives you the gallop sound that alot of metal bands use.
Not Enough AssHatery
