Im trying to get that kind of harmonics...I tried adding +2 to the frets that are played...tried 3rds, and 5ths, and octaves. It doesnt sound quite right. Heres a small sample of the riff im trying to work with:


-----------------------------------|--------------------------|
-----------------------------------|--------------------------|
-----------------------------------|--------------------------|
-----------------------5-8-5-8-5-8-|--------------------------|
-----------5-8-5-8-5-8-------------|--4-7-4-7-4-7-4-7-4-7-4-7-|
--0--0--0--------------------------|--------------------------|

Seems like a melodic minor harmony. Very dark sounding. Although, queer metalcore kids think they can stick this into any old song to make it sound darker, when really, their just making themselves look ridiculous.


Sorry if I offended you. I just can't stand the predictability of today's metal. It's just so freakin cliche'.

Try 6ths. I think it might be 6ths, which would be a third lower then your root. Not a 6th up.
#5
most common are thirds, i didnt watch it though, so check what ouchies said, and be aware that all the intervals arent gonna be for instance, a major third, some are gonna be minor, and whatnot

Erm...So basically change the tab and subtract 2 frets from each number? Or what?


err using notation would be a lot easier.

It would be subtracting 3 frets or 4 frets, 3 for a major 6th 4 for a major.
#8
Do you think you guys could learn that tab and try and figure it out? THe major 6th and the 6th isnt working too hot, sounds way too dissonant
#9
no figure it out yourself itll make you a better player.

you can always just tab it out in guitar pro and then add the 6ths in notation.
#10
Thats what im doing, which is why I can tell it still sounds different. Well its not exactly dissonant, and we are almost there, but it makes the overall sound too low, where instead I want the 2nd guitar to sound higher.
#12
3 or 4 frets, like ouchies said, and that is one hell of a clichéd riff...
#13
try playing 6 notes up.it sounds diminished

Yeah, its pretty generic tech death stuff. I tried the harmonization, it works fairly well, I guess Ill keep it. Thanks!

I think it's a pretty cool riff... here's how I'd harmonize it.

Edit: Whoops, I didn't realize you had already decided. Lol, disregard my post.

I'm glad I could be of help! Now don't quote me on this, I'm still very much a theory noob, but I believe it was entirely in minor 3rds.
