I haven't been playing long, almost a year on an acoustic, but my parents brought me a cheap electric guitar package at xmas. I haven't really learnt any metal songs, just riffs off different songs. The sad thing is there isn't any guitar teachers near me, nor do i have the cash to pay for one, but i want to learn how to play Death Metal. I can't play anything fast, just Paranoid and Iron Man from Sabbath.
Any suggestions about how to get faster, and what easy songs i could try to learn?
And how do you play Death Metal? lol
There are a gazillion video tutorials on Youtube. My three best tips for (any) metal (and most other styles):
1) Learn damping with right and left hand, to make sure unplayed strings are silent
2) Play difficult parts slowly first, gradually increase tempo with a metronome. If you can't play it slowly you can't play it fast (even if you think so).
3) Find the thread we're people gives their best beginner's tips (can't find it for some reason )
