By Outside the Octaves
Hi, I recently got my first 7-string guitar, and also am now looking to start sweep picking.
One thing I'm looking into now is how to time my notes to a metronome so that I can work on getting my technique down and slowly raise the speed up over time.
What I'm confused about is, say the initial 12th fret (or open) C major arpeggio sweeping pattern everyone uses starting out that utilizes 2 octaves. Now that I have my new Schecter C-7 Deluxe, I have yet another octave open to me below the original 2. This 7-string gives nine notes in the whole scale "box" and thus has me wondering how I should do things. It looks like I should have groupings of 3, and therefore should do things based off of that. Consequently, 4/4 time doesn't seem to fit, but 3/4 might not be right either. I know that it's whatever works for me, but in the end, I don't accurately see what is right for me yet, as I'm new to sweep picking and timing things.

Me playing The Lowest Common Denominator by Null1
Hi, I mostly play in Drop B (stuff like Slipknot, Korn, Some Manson tracks and so on).
So what would be some crucial guitar techniques for me to learn if i want to create my own stuff?
The three i can think of right now are:
1. Pinch harmonics
2. Switching between picking individual strings and playing power chords
3. Palm muting.
Also what are some good scales to practice finger agility?
