Alright guys. Here's the thing. I have NEVER crossed over and made an attempt to play in drop d tuning. For most of my guitar playing life, my songs have always been cheerful and happy, but life has taken a turn, and I feel it's time I put a recording in, or at least start working on, a song that is a bit angry . Problem is, I really have no idea how to do any of this. Could anyone show me a few "angry" metal songs/riffs/chord progressions that I could jam out with on the acoustic? Thanks!

Most acoustic metal isn't angry. It's usually sad, or, in some cases, upbeat (see: Alcest).

insideac has a video of himself playing Necrophagist on an acoustic. I forget which song.

The intro to Black Seeds on Virgin Soil by Old Man's Child is acoustic.
Shadows Fall and In Flames both have some great acoustic instrumentals (SF does at least) and both have great acoustic intros (SF: Those Who Cannot Speak, The Light That Blinds, IF: Moonshield)
Behemoth- Sculpting the Throne Ov Seth
I guess none of those songs are angry, just intelligent...

Morbid Angel - Desolate Ways.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Not a 100% Metal per se. But Breed 77 have an amazing feel to them and they often utilise acoustic guitars.

Yeah, Orion would be a good song for the acoustic.

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.
