So I love neoclassical metal. Yngwie, Jason Becker, etc. I can play leads and solos in that style, but I'm having trouble writing the rhythms for it. I know the chords that go with the scales (natural minor, Harmonic minor, melodic minor) So do you guys have any advice?
Its just like making a progression for any other song. Try using diminished chords and chords from harmonic minor though, I don't know much more to tell you.
Base the chords around the leads that you write. Try to hear chord changes in your head as your playing the lead part, and then just figure it out from there.
Ok. I'm gonna have to dig out the multitracker and experiment.
