Which scales do they use for most of their solos? Preferably Sidewinder, because the acoustic soloat the end sounds great, and I think I could do wonders with that scale. But if you dont know that one, just give me the ones you do know of. Thanks

The rest of the band brings him down so much, especially the singer, he sounds like he's whining all the time. I'd like to see what he could do with the other 2 guitarists from BTBAM.

Yea he's way to good to waste his talent in a band like A7X. A lot of their fans are young teens whose music taste will change with time, whether they go a completely different route or they will indulge in heavier forms of music, who knows, but they will move on. That's just a recipe for disaster for the band.

No bandwaggons here. I've hated A7X for quite some time, certainly way before I joined UG. But Syn can play.
#22
Syn is a good guitarist, and Waking the Fallen was quite good, and I loved City of Evil, but their newest album is total sh*t.

Anyway, Syn uses minor scales with a lot of chromatics. The chromatics are what gives his solos that slightly evil feel.

Syn isn't god, especially live, but he can certianly play well.

But yeah Synyster Gates is one of the biggest inspirations to my playing. Once I started learning A7X songs I kind of adapted his style since I was so new at playing. I know he's not the best but he's not the worst at all.

And Minor and Chromatic scales!
#24
if i remember correctly he uses (slight variations of) the romanian harmonic minor scale a lot on city of evil

I could care less. Fact is you and every other fanboy (of his)somehow believe that if you say he is amazing it will happen. He isn't anything special. He is average with a but get attention because emo kids started listening to A7X and propelled him up the charts.

Have you ever really listened to Avenged Sevenfold? He can play fast with emotion on top of it. Some people just like his style of play, obviously you not being one of them. I'd definitely say he's above average.

This thread is getting real off topic.

STOP ****ING GRINDING ON SYNYSTER'S **** HERE AND TAKE IT TO THE AVENGED SEVENFOLD THREAD. Jesus Christ, this thread is to answer the question of what scales he uses, which has already been answered thoroughly.

Racism... against the human race? Sure, go ahead
#37
OMG, this thread is full of epic win. I've been saying Syn and the Rev (drummer?) would be so much better in another band without the lead singer, current second guitarist, and bass. Seriously, the drummer is really good. And Syn's not bad, but between the crappy bass, second guitarist (Johnny Z or something like that) and the singer guys whiny voice I really can't stand to listen to the band. Plus, I think he really needs to find a genre and stick with it, a7x was really good when they were heavy metal, now they're what I class as "Radio Rock", and they suck at it. Hard.
#38
uhhh ok anyways staying on subject they use alot of aeolian mode scales, i think dorian, chromatic, and minor harmonic scale
