    Can anyone give some tips on writing a guitar solo?

    I think that you should try to sing the solo. Most people think that when they will learn theory they’ll write killer solos, but it’s not true… it just makes it faster to transfer the melody in your head to the guitar. Alot of people fall in the trap of playing solos that only involve what their...

    I'm Giving up guitar sorry

    To be honest, in the beginning, I recommend learning songs you wanna play right away.

You also notice improvement much faster with songs than with...

    Unholy Confessions cover almost finished!!

    Everything is fine man, it’s YOUR cover. I just think you should film yourself playing the guitar and singing, was that in your plans? You need some sort of video/videoclip, there is no question about it. But to answer your question, I like your screams, they sound pretty fucking demonic haha...

    opinions on different kinds of picks?

Pointy tip for : Less pick distance to travel before...

    How to get "feel" in your playing??

    It might sound weird but when I force myself to do faces or be more expressive physically, my guitar playing somewhat follows :p Using different picking dynamics (hit the string really softly vs extremely hard) can tell alot about how youre supposed to feel about a note.

    What's your song writting process?

    Man… I wrote this really fucking cool and emotional 30 sec long riff… But I wrote it maybe 3 months ago and I DONT FREAKING KNOW WHAT TO ADD TO IT, WHAT TO HAVE AS A BACKING TRACK FOR IT… Basically I have no clue what to do with it and it saddens me because I really feel like there is something...
