    Any Djent/Prog metal fans here?

    I love especially Mark Holcomb’ s style. If you’ve ever cared to differentiate between the members styles, misha has more of the djentier polyrhytmic stuff while Mark writes in broad embellished chords, like the main riff of scarlet. I’m just astounded that people can write such original ideas...

    Any Djent/Prog metal fans here?

    I recently have been really into bands like periphery, animals as leaders, wage war, etc. I was just wondering if there was anyone on here who liked that kinda thing. I would love to pick your brain about songwriting for that genre since it seems a little more intensive than say thrash

    Good low-intermidiate guitar solos

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate the advice. I’ve been working on the solo in another day by dream theater which isn’t too bad except for the stupid run in the middle

    Good low-intermidiate guitar solos

    I’ve been working on httk for a bit now. The part that leads into the sweeps (the economy picking part) messes me up every time. It’s so stupid fast

    Good low-intermidiate guitar solos

    so I’ve been looking for a guitar solo that could help with the techniques I’ve been working on here (sweeping, legato, economy/alternate picking) but have been getting frustrated. I feel like no matter how long I spend on a lick I always stay stuck in the same place. I’m looking for something...

    Most Badass Song you have listened to and why?

    Make total destroy by periphery. The build into the last statement “as we reduce them all to bones” is just supreme

    Favourite Avenged Sevenfold song?

    Crossroads is cool, and I love the solo in dancing dead, but M.I.A is just such a cool song
