Ive been practicing scales for lead, but im not sure what to practice for rhythm. all i know is open chords and bar chords. Also for metal what chords do i use apart from 5ths? can i just make up chords with notes from a scale?

thanks but

"You can use all of the 7 intervals in whatever key your are playing in, but the sweet spots in my opinion are one and four."

Are you saying that chords that use the 1st or 4th as the root sound good? sorry but im still learning the basics of theory.

For each degree of the scale there are what chords you should play:

1-major
2-minor
3-minor
4-major
5-major
6-minor
7-diminished

So if we are in the key of A for example, and an A note comes along, then play A major. If a C comes along, then play C minor. If an E comes along, play E major, etc, etc.

So try to remember that when you are playing, and you will make some good chord progressions.

Well the 7th can be used with any of those chords such as major 7, minor 7, diminished 7 etc. 7 chords are used more for jazz, and are hard (for me at least) to make them sound good within normal chords.

Sorry I screwed up here. The 5th degree should be dominant, not major. You dont have to worry about dominant chords when playing just major chords. A dominant chord is when you flat the 7th of the chord, however, in this case, we dont have a 7th in the chord, so we just keep it in the 1-3-5 format, which is basically a major chord.
