harmonic minor and phrigian, or you coud just do a kirk hammett and just use the pentatonic.

E and A minor pentatonic.
Blues scale.

Warm up, play around in key, put in some bends, you'll get better.
...
Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.

well the blues scale is just a pentatonic with a passing note meaning its just as easy to shred on as the pentatonic.

so its a good starter but i feel lit lacks feeling *when applied in metal*

for some later scales

Diminished half/whole or whole/half

Melodic Minor

and then try out exotic ones as you feel more comfortable to appling to your music

The beauty of Metal is that you can use any scale you want becuase Metal has no boundaries.

Hardly any music has boundaries.

Augmented scale? My brother was playing an augmented lick over a riff I was playing yesterday, and it sounded nice.

I'm strange with my guitar playing, but i play the mixodolyan (sp?) alot around the 10th position.

But I agre, phygirian is very dark sounding for almost slayer sounding riffs.
If im not mistaken, the raining blood riff was written in phygirian?
