Hey all smile.gif,

So, I've been trying to practice together with a friend of mine, we've already played some Black Sabbath together, but now we're kind of lost and don't know what/how to practice together... So I'd like to hear if anyone got tips about practicing together and some songs to try?

We both like to play rock and metal and our skill pretty avarage...

I hope you guys can help us out. smile.gif

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums biggrin.gif

Well, you could try some Iron Maiden. ALL their songs are great, and they're played by several guitars =)

And when you get tired of songs, let someone play chord progression and other one modes on top of it. Then switch, the first one plays modes and other one plays chords - with a metronome of course.

Yeah you should try jamming together.Like a blues or funk jam. I remember I used to practice with another guitarist the part from Dream theater Metropolis part 1(a long run in B minor played by keyboard and guitar simultaneously).We started slowly with metronome and raised the tempo bit by bit until it sounded really great

+1 to Ivans idea. I do that all the time. It's good for several reasons.... The metronome improves and keeps the timing of everyone together. It gets the creative juices flowing both rhythmically and during solos. It also improves your ears as to what each mode sounds like. I've been doing this lately with my friend - it's fun too!

Screw covers - make your own songs!

Alice cooper is very good as well. Harmonize a scale together (to a metronome) with different intervals.
