    writing riffs is fuckin easy, i want to know how you turn 30 seconds of riff into a song without the next bit you play sounding like it doesn't match

    Call me a poser, but playing metal with a birdy inlayed guitar doesn't make any sense for me, I hate PRS even on Marty Friedman…

    I like to use scales when i'm writing riffs (natural minor, harmonic minor and phrgyian dominant most of the time). I take my low e (or sometimes d if i'm in drop d) as my route and then play the scale in that key on the a string (use power chords or octaves to give those notes more life) put the low string (the route) in between some octaves or power chords i play on the a string and boom there is a cool riff. Adding harmonics and using different time signatures may make it more intersting too. Experiment and see if this method works for you.

    fucking hell this is a top off, this is a riff commonly used in metal songs for a bridge, no originality at all. seriously, if noone can see that then your musical genius is being fooled by this bullshit. listen to 80's metal bridges and see how close this is. GOD DAMN

    How to write a riff:
    get good at guitar first, cover some songs, then use the technique that you've learned and just play shit until it sounds good.

    One problem I always have is accidentally hitting a harmonic then I get more mad when I can't figure that harmonic out for the beginning of a different riff (I like having three different sounding and style of riffs in each song I write other than one riff). This lesson helped me out a lot on how to better write something in without the harmonic issue.

    The problem im having is getting real clarity and presence from my guitar riffs through FL Studio. Im a complete noob when it comes to DAW's and EQ'ing tracks, I am a guitar player and thats all, anybody know any tricks? I bought the T-racks VST/Addon for FL Studio, apparently this can really brighten and present your guitar tracks, anybody know how I can best do this? Ill be adding it over the top of some rather noobish made drum tracks via ezdrummer and emulated bass tracks using Amplitube 3 Ampeg so I only really want to focus the guitar tracks, the rest of the instruments are just to hold down the beat/timing as I dont play drums and bass so cannot really get creative with those instruments.

    Also if you wipe some earwax on your pick ups it helps tremendously.

    More gain for better sustain but a better quality guitar helps too. As for feedback, stand next to the amp with high gain.

    haha, wow! I've never seen someone get so angry at a guitar lesson video before.

    Possibly a better amp for sustained notes, or a compressor/sustainer from Boss. Feedback, you'd have to have really high distortion and/or volume. If using single coils, the feedback will be easier to obtain than with humbuckers.
