    There was a "songwriting challenge" on the Metal-Archives forum, and it was supposed to be a bunch of contestants but in the end we were only two who made complete songs Oh well, here's my entry. It could probably be longer, but I just wanted to make a short old school death metal headbanger...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    It's for my popular music songwriting class. I wrote the melody and lyrics, and produced the instrumental behind it. The only thing I didn't do is sing. I've had pretty decent feedback on it from my friends in pop music but I would love to hear from people who prefer something thats probably the...
  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hello everyone, Since I've just started getting back into music/guitar after a 2 year break, I am finding it hard to write music that is even remotely interesting to me. I wanted to get some idea of how you guys approach songwriting. Do you sit down with a guitar and noodle in a key and...

    I like AC/DC, but this is hilarious. The Last Second Of Every AC/DC Song Ever Recorded • Lazer Horse

    I think a lot of you guys here will dig this: https://khemmis.bandcamp.com/album/absolution Been spinning this album a bunch since it came out on Tuesday. It's fairly similar to Pallbearer, but IMO with more groove and better songwriting. Also the album cover features a gnarly wizard with...

    On a scale of 1-10 please. How douchey is yelling "Mosh" before a mosh break. Usually I just do like, inarticulate gurgles and screams, but sometimes actually words are nice, it makes you look like an intellectual. Will people feel like they are having their intelligence insulted? What if...
  8. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    The title basically sums up everything. I've written about 15 songs, and all of them use key of C power chords for the whole song, with lazy solos that are actually just scale variations. Any tips from people who used to write all their songs like this?

    So, like anyone in their right mind, I fucking love 80s metal. I think the songwriting was usually a lot tighter and more inspired than most modern metal. It's difficult to pinpoint, but I think one of the huge things is that I haven't really heard a single modern metal song that has prechoruses...

    Besides Dan Swano's ridiculous falsetto this is actually as good as a lot of "real" glam metal.
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm certain this happens to everyone at one point, but I'm wondering to what extent. How often do you fuck up a riff or any part of a song you are writing and it sounds good enough to end up in the song? I do this multiple times a song, and I wonder if my songs are more fortunate mistakes rather...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I have been using this method to teach my guitar students for the past 8 years. I find that in the beginning when they are learning theory related to the guitar or bass its best to remove the circle of fifths to the equation till they can get a grasp on the basics of scales and modes. Below is...
