  2. Hi all, A lot of people don't know the more exotic scales used in metal so I put together a lesson with backing tracks looking at the most commonly used scales in metal. I only ask that you don't look at the rest of the site yet as I am still building/re-doing a lot of it. Scales used in heavy metal
  3. Thanks onbongos, It's weird because it only sounds really good with headphones on - through my amp's speaker it sounds too flat with too much low-end even after EQ tweaking.
  4. I'm using a Boss ME-50 which has a very crude rotary effect, however, coupled with heavy gain it sounds absolutely awesome. Only problem is I need this sound WITHOUT the osolation noise, but even if I turn it down to absolute minimum there is still some very slow osolation which I don't need. Does anyone know a distortion/rotary pedal that allows you to keep the TONE of the effect, but switch off the actual osolation effect? Sorry if this isn't too clear.
  5. Originally posted by freeridstylee What are some good harmonizers? Only one i can find is the boss. I'm just using the one on my ME-50 - it aint perfect but it does the job.
  6. It makes a regular scale sound so damn good. Who was the first band to really "use" this effect though - Thin Lizzy? I know Queen used it more than most bands.
  7. Originally posted by Nuppu There's a nice book that might help you: Blues You Can Use by John Ganepes. LOL, he rhymed "blues" with "use". What? I'm at work!
  8. Originally posted by gennation I learned all of my theory pretty much from old Guitar Player magazine workshops and the book Chord Chemistry by Ted Greene. Ted's book is a legend, I highly recommend it. Although, it's not like a textbook theory book or anything, but it'll teach you some great concepts and show you everything you'll need in a lifetime about chords. Get it, It's under $10 at Amazon but it's worth a million. I don't have the link with me at work, but you posted an article with Ted which covered a good range of chords and weird inversions, like an extract from his book. This was very useful. I'd get that posted here too.
  9. I have a page with metal guitar lessons including palm mute techniques like machine gunning etc... the site is under construction so please bear that in mind!... http://www.audio-guitar-lessons.com/metal-guitar-lessons.html
  10. Originally posted by gennation And here's Chord Voicing lesson from Ted (the examples are the links on the right). Enjoy! http://www.guitarplayer.com/story.asp?sectioncode=7&storycode=11345 I love reading stuff that re-affirms my understanding. Great link. Did a lot of nodding through that article!
  11. Originally posted by gennation When asked to play in 'non-stardard' guitar positions is when you separate the men from the boys. ALROIT!
  12. Originally posted by typedeaF LOL @ DVD's that cover pinch harmonics. *eherm* sorry. Uhh okay. Its just this. After you pick a note, let the flesh of your thumb hit the string. Thats it. So intentionally rotate or lower your thumb so that some of the skin hits the string after you pick it. I have a friend who keeps bugging me about this same topic. I will try to get a useful angle on my webcam and post it, if it helps, buts its likely near impossible becasuse it would have to be zoomed in so close. Lol at guitar videos altogether I think they're pretty useless - I learned nothing from them when I started out, because I kept having to rewind the damn thing just to see it again. Give me a STATIONARY diagram and photo any day, it's always there, in the same spot for reference.
  13. Why are they written upside down - that confused me! e--- B--- G--- D--- A--- E--- Please! Interesting chords upside down though
  14. Lol some funny names in this thread. Some other great players to consider: Yangrit Mulmtweed Stevey Rave-On Mash (from Buns 'n' Moses) Dirk Whammet (from Temallica) Wilma (from the Flintstones)
  15. It's quite fascinating just how much western music takes from the major scale - people seem to think... major scale - major chords which is true, but you start to realise that the major scale does in fact control MINOR chords just in a different pattern or position. The major scale is the base for all (well...) western music - notice how the Aeolian (natural minor) is simply a major scale starting on a different note? This is why all the broken records on this forum will insistantly say "learn your major scales" It's almost like western music has cut us a little slack! It's fascinating how it all comes together from one fooking scale.
