Making Metal Music

There are people out there that just love the metal music and perhaps even want to start making some music, but they just don’t know how. They don’t have the necessary experience not the organizational skills to make it happen, and this is pretty common thing. People believe that making metal music is rather easy, but they won’t know just how hard that is if they have never tried it. So, if you have ever wondered what it takes to create good metal music, read this, and get all of your questions answered.

The first thing you need is a group of people that enjoy similar music. Only people with a similar taste in music can make good tunes, and people whose music taste differs greatly can only make something that sound like a group of bad, untuned music instruments playing out loud. So, without several people who enjoy similar music, there is no way you can make good metal music.

Then, the next step is learning how to play. There are people out there that have had a couple of guitar lessons, and they believe that they know everything. No, you need to learn much more, if you wish to be great at this, and to create great music. First, you’ll need some barre chords tips, so you can learn how to play the guitar properly, or any other music instrument for that matter. It is also important to choose an instrument that suits you the best, and not the instrument you wish suited you the best.

Then, once you’ve learned how to play, you’ll need to learn how to write the music down. Only this way will you be able to make good metal music, because wanting to be a musician without knowing how to write the music down is like wanting to be a novelist without knowing how to write. So, take some lessons, learn how to do this, and it will make it easier for you to write down all the tunes that are coming from your heart and your soul, because that’s where the real music comes from.

Of course, when you learn how to write the music, you’ll also learn how to read it, and now all that’s left for you is to find a place where you’ll be able to play the music you’ve written down. That means you need a place for your rehearsals, and there might be a problem with this, because metal music tends top be a bit loud. That is why you need to find an isolated place so you don’t bother anyone; because you need to keep in mind that not everyone likes metal music, and some people might not approve of you playing loud instruments in your garage, in a street crowded with people.

Once you complete everything we’ve listed here, you’ll be able to start making some good metal music. You just have to remember that, besides all these things, you also need to have some talent for it, because it is clear that you already have the heart and soul for it.

How to start a metal band?

There are people out there who love metal music, and apart from that, they even know how to play the instruments. And some of them were wondering how to start playing, or how to set up a metal band. If someone is willing to do something they like, and get money for it, it’s like they are not working at all, and that is why we fully support the idea of starting your own metal band. But the problem lies in the fact that there are some people out there who just don’t know how to start it. Well, we are going to help them out, and give them some advice and tips that will certainly help them in that path.

The first step is a step that you probably already have covered, but we’ll mention it nevertheless. You need to know how to play an instrument, of course, or at least you need to know how to sing. Remember that the instrument does not have to be a guitar, as most people thing. You can choose any instrument you want, and it won’t make your future band any less metal. So, play what you like, and not what you’re being dictated to.

The next step may be a bit difficult, because it includes having some kind of a financial support. However, you will have to do it eventually. This step includes buying the equipment necessary for playing in a band. Keep in mind that this equipment does not have t be brand new; you can get a used set. Member of the “Gas Hopper” band even said that the used instruments sound better than the new ones.

Then, you need to find some other people who are willing to join your band. It is always better to find people who already know how to play the instruments, because then you don’t have to teach them, and you can start playing right away. This doesn’t mean that other friends should not be applied, but only that this way is easier. So, find at least three or four people, and start jamming. Also, these new members will also need to have their own equipment, or how else are they going to play?

Then comes perhaps the hardest step yet – finding a band name. Most cool band names have already been taken, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t think of a new one. Think long and hard on it, because you shouldn’t change the name it you find something new. A band name is like your phone number – you can change it, but then you’ll have to start notifying everyone about it.

Now that you have a complete band with a name and members, you need to find a place where you’re going to practice. This can be really hard, considering how loud metal music can be. Make sure you have the approval of all your neighbors, or else someone might call the police, which is something you don’t want.

And, there you go, you now have a metal band. Now all that’s left for you is to practice enough to get noticed, and when you get noticed, you’ll become famous too.
