Thumbs up

what most of everyone is saying is right, but the main part of learning to play death metal (almost 90% of it) is just listening to the music and picking out the guitar pieces. BTW that In Flames song someone was referring to was "Moonshield" not, "Moonchild". Some great guitar-oriented bands in heavier/death/melodic death metal are from the Scandinavian countries. I'd recommend Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Opeth, Children of Bodom, Immortal, Decapitated, Dimmu Borgir, and Old Man's Child to start. Death Metal has some of the best trained musicians out there right now, especially if they are classically trained musicians that don't stick just to distortion-powered death metal. When musicians do acoustic/classical pieces or work them into the metal, it usually ends up really good.

i usually play in c or b. like darko said, if your tuning that low, listen to some nile, or malignancy, but that shits not easy by anymeans. i first started playing some at the gates tunes and then some dying fetus. learn some of their songs to get the feel of the style and work from there. after getting used to it the style will grow on you. use a lot of tremolo picking, hammer on pull offs, palm muted notes, harmonics, shit like that.

a few songs to start off with:
at the gates - cold
at the gates - blinded by fear
dying fetus - vengeance unleashed
dying fetus - grotesque impalement
cephalic carnage - black metal sabbath

anything by six feet under is easy

I use standard tuning and I can lay out some killer Death metal riffs. Basically all you need is a good distortion and then just make up a riff. I use a lot of trills and tremelo picking. PINCH HARMONICS use a lot of those too. A lot of palm muting aswell. Riff should sound like-- dun dun dun weee (PH) dun di do dun doodley doodley (trill) dididididiidododododod (tremelo picking) DO DO!

listen to these death metal songs

-Im going to rape my mom by jesus bitchslapper
-cut off your buttocks and wear it as a hat by the rapers
-impale your brothers and sisters by family murderer

OR you could just listen to yngwie malmsteen, jason becker, michael angelo, or marty friedman for some REAL talent. Why sing when it sounds like a looonnnngg burp?

Your 13 Shred, your musically taste will soon realize how redundant shred is. You don't need to buy a Yngwei or Angelo album when you can download one song and get the whole album. Technical talent dosen't equal good songs either.

Anyway, this thread is gone.
