So I'm dating this girl who's into metal. I can tell by her eyes she's not impressed in the slightest with my jazz stuff so I want to write her a metal song.
What songs should I listen to to get a feel for how to make a good metal sound? I'm talking rhythmically. I'm just playing by myself so I'm not so interested in crazy lead stuff more just how to get some nice heavy sounding metal riffs/rhythms going.
Well shit, you are getting into metal for a better reason than most of us! I just got into it because I genuinely like songs about dragons.
What kind of metal does she like? Metal is pretty broad. Classic metal? Thrash metal? Death metal?
