alright, so i started guitar about four years ago and skipped learning notes and chords and just played songs. in the past 6 months, i have become very serious about guitar playing. What chords should i learn to be considered advanced? i play metal. thanks.

Well, no matter what you play... you're gonna need to know all the basic chords, such as A, C, D, E, F, G, and a few variations of each such as the 7, 5, minor, etc.

mm four years and you dont know any chords?
well you got to learn all the major and minor open chords first, then barre chords, power chords. and the construction of chords is very important to know. ehh i can't really explain all of these so i'll let someone else do it.

Learn whatever chords you can. Best way to do it is apply them to songs you already know. If you know there's a bunch of single notes, just see if there's any chord that encompasses them. Personally though, in Metal, I hardly ever find my self playing with chords unless the song specifically calls for it.

A reviewer on Amazon.com reviewing an album by the band "HiM", said that HiM is "fag metal".
Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.
