You mean harmonizing? Just play a lead line while someone else plays it an octave higher/lower.

EDIT: Yeah I'm an idiot. Don't listen to me...

A harmony is not an octave. The most common harmonies in metal are thirds, fourths, and fifths.

My bad. I thought what I said was wrong, but I couldn't tell if the TS was trolling or not so I didn't bother to check...

THANK YOU. I was about to say the same.
it bothers me when people preach incorrect music theory.

No, no, you've got it wrong. I decided awhile ago that my sole purpose in life is to misinform people about music theory. And I would have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for you meddling kids...

Seriously though, my bad. It didn't seem right when I typed it but I posted anyway for some reason. I know how annoying it is when someone posts wrong information.

listen to this guy
he's right harmonies usually comsit of some one playing the thirds fourths or fifths of the root note. four frets away from the 'ROOT'' note your playing is the minor third

such as

T
e10---15
B---------
G---------
D---------
A---------
E---------
15 is the minor third
