I want to get better at metal & hard rock so I want to keep my focus on electric guitar more…

I may love all kinds of music but metal & hard rock would always be my no. 1. I’ve been playing guitar for almost 20 years now. In fact, I think it has been 20 years. Over the years, I’ve always tried to play metal and hard rock ’cause that was the whole reason I wanted to play guitar after hearing Led Zeppelin. After Zeppelin then I started listening to other hard rock & metal bands like Sabbath, Metallica, Ac/Dc, Iron Maiden and bands such as those.

I’ve studied hard rock and metal guitar for years and figure I finally want to improve myself in that genre. Yeah, I pretty much want to become a technically skilled guitarist and doing all I can to get there. I’m trying to learn how those metal guitarists make headbanging riffs and all that stuff. I’m trying to learn how to shred and improve my lead guitar playing which both are getting worked on. When playing lead guitar for metal, most metal guys use the modes and the pentatonic scales so playing lead guitar when playing metal is not that difficult as it seems.

I still want to make a full band hard rock/metal album someday which has always been my dream. Playing in a full band is something I could be good at and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

I believe I can make some great hard rock & metal with big riffs and all that stuff. With all my acoustic songs, those are mostly hard rock songs ’cause I don’t have a band yet and that’s why I mostly write on acoustic first.

People don’t think I could do metal but I can prove ’em wrong. Metal is my favorite genre of music. Yes, I’m a metalhead even though it may not seem like it. I’ve always wanted to make a metal record and some day I will. Just waiting for the right time and not getting too ahead of myself. I’ve written metal songs on the electric guitar when I was young before, though. I can do it. Just want to improve my playing and singing some.

I love metal. I’m a lifelong metal fan. I may not have the long hair and the tattoos, I just dig the music but I do want to start getting some tattoos down the road so I can get that look. Tattoos are cool.

I love the electric guitar. I’ll never give up the acoustic but I’m just starting to like electric more. I spent most of my life playing acoustic and want to do something different for a change.
