Earlier in his career Laiho used a lot of harmonic minor actually. Said so himself. Now in the newest album (AYDY?) he started using more of diminished kinds of scales (not exactly sure which dim scale) and of course he's used diminished arpeggio (sweeps) from the beginning nearly.

For sweeping he clearly likes to use tapping for expansion of the arpeggio, and he also does those tap-bending kind of things; see this:

none of the sweeps in there are hard...you usually find the same patterns in lessons teaching pplz how to sweep

oh and I noticed hes starting to use the pentatonic minor a bit

Tunings : 1 step down, always.
Favoured techniques of Alexi and Roope : Fast alternate picking, sweep picking
Double what you play with a keyboard most of the time

Those are IMO the most important elements of Children of Bodom. But there are many more. Check out their tabs, see what you can pick up from them.

Oh and be absolutely amazing at guitar.

^the alexi laiho signature model is about $2000...i don't think you'd want to dish out that much for a guitar, especially since it doesn't even have a neck pickup and is just hopelessly awkward to play sitting down

be original

Seriously no offence but grow up fanboy..you dont need his guitar

If you really want it you can get cheap asian copys for like $300 american somewhere but they arent worth shit

and its not a song its a jam, people dont usually name jams...but from what Ive seen there a guitar pro file of it called demonstration #2 or something...mots of the song is missing but all of alexis leads on most songs are the same kinda patterns so you shouldent have too much trouble picking up on the missing parts...too bad roopes guitar is so quiet

And I find V shaped guitar THE most comfortable while sitting down since I allways sit in the classical position

Its not too hard find the tab or pick it up yourself

The main riff is simple, then play a few licks, do a chromatic run up the E string, another run up from the 16the fret or whatever, then that bending lick laiho allways does (ofcourse thats not exactly whats going on but Im trying to show its not too hard to pick it up by ear)

you know like ect
----------14-----------14
------14-----------14
-16^---------16^

you say your a shredder so Im sure you have picked up on the patterns laiho allways plays

No, old CoB albums are Drop D and the lastest album is Drop C. I remember Alexi telling about it in a instructional video on youtube or google video.

Tbh that's not quite right since most of the old stuff is with tuning low to high: D G C F A D, while the new album is: C G C F A D. Something Wild (1st album) was tuned down 1½ steps if my memory isn't failing me here.

Come to think of it you might be right, too bad I can't remeber the exact vid in which alexi tells about CoB tuning.
