I'm REALLY starting to get ticked off, i cannot play anything but blues, i came and asked before about a week or two and people said try using dorian scale so i did. and guess what im using A dorian and im STILL playing blues, i think its my phrasing i cant help but use full bends alot---of B|--8-------- and B|-12b(14)p10-----
G|-10b(12)-___G|-----------------12- [ /end code]

what should i do instead of these??? like what would be the metal form of those things

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.

the metal thing would be add chugs in the mix, and don't focus on scales or keys or anythig, just play something, if it sounds bad...youron the right track

Well, start by asking yourself what you DO want to play, instead of what you don't. Once you know what you WANT to do, come back and tell us, and we'll get you on the right track.

You're leaving the sixth out. Much less bluesy with the sixth.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

i know the bends can get really addictive, but when i need to play something metal, i simply stay away from bends and the swing kinda feel. i tend to throw in some palm muted stuff inbetween alot of notes, and i try to play in minor. im not the best when it comes to music theory, but i do believe the sixth is to create tension, which should help make it sound less bluesy. just what i do. good luck tho

You leave bending out?

You should still bend and lay on notes even playing metal, it'll give your lead playing more character. If you notice any of the great shredders can play very fast.. very heavy but they'll bend and lay on notes that really strike the listener.
