Baroque Sound

How can I get a Baroque period sound in my music. I'm looking for stuff like music from the castlevania games or kinda like Malice Mizer ( if any of you like them). What scales, efffects, techniques, etc. should I use.

heh... for some ideas.

As far as scales and techniques... everything is game. Pedal tones are a common characteristic. Moving via circle of 5ths/4ths sounds classical. Playing super fucking fast scalar and through arpeggios sound classical. Using wide intervals sound classical.

Analyze Yngwie Malmsteems's "Baroque and Roll"

Also a definite characteristic is hetereophonic texture - that is a melody, with the 2nd guitar playing it with only small differences.
Also, harmonize shitloads.
Pretty obvious really.

Bach's six cello suites is a great example.
Man, I get real sweaty after I wack my dong. Yeah, cause I headbang while I do, and I can't really "Jump" (haha ) like VanHalen in a dorm room, so I just walk back and forth....haha a couple days ago I was jumping up and down on my bed, with my pants down and my roommate came in when I wasn't looking, hahaha.
