hey, lately i have been learning the harmonic minor but have been leaning it in box patterns rather than notes. is that a good way to learn it? also is the harmonic minor a good scale for writing metal riffs

Tell the friend that due to an amp explosion you are now temporarily deaf and will judge her friend solely on looks.
this is the sixth time you've asked if the harmonic minor is a good scale for writing metal riffs
the answer is yes, it can be
but theres also many other scales you can use, dont just limit yourself to harmonic minor
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.
any scale can be used to create any style you want, but harmonic minor is popular in metal. oh and as helpful as box patterns can be, it is still best to know the notes you're playing and learning the notes across the guitar is the best way to do this
