comment Learning pick and finger-picking at the same time?
@shootingstars no not at all if you have the time during the song to adjust the grip off you plectrum to allow for finger playing faster songs maybe a problem. dropping the Plectrum maybe a concern haha!

I have to disagree if you can learn different styles it will broaden your musical horizons playing with different techniques is a great way of increasing proficiency with any instrument. Different grip with drumming for example.

comment How to adapt guitar playing style to a new genre
@muffin haha no problem the list goes on I would run out of characters on the comments section if I named them all :P. Heres a few more to get the creative Juices flowing stemming from Metal core to thrash to Groove Metal. Lamb of God, Disturbed, Hatebreed, As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, Chimera.

comment How to adapt guitar playing style to a new genre
Asking Alexandria wouldn't have been my first choice but alternate picking is a key technique to materialize in Metalcore its mostly 4/4 timing signature and above 150bpm so teaching your brain the alternate picking manoeuvre would be very beneficial look at the likes of early Bullet for My Valentine, All That Remains and Trivium. you will be surprised to know that metal has punk influences in some of its riffs and structures.

comment Drummer: Follow Bassist, Guitarist, or Lead
I think the structure of a song and the time keeping is a team effort I find myself in certain places following everyone at different times. its just what clicks to me that "Oh now I should be playing this riff" and so on..

comment Difficulty tuning in Drop D
I would definitely check whether you have a floating bridge because those are also part of the tuning process as it will drop if the strings are loosened.

comment Getting Started Recording and Arranging Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Etc
I would suggest splitting this question into the three separate questions that you have stated although be warned the second question WILL be closed as off topic. and the third will not be well received as it is purely down to personal preference. but for the first question you need only buy 4 cheep mics 2 for overhead 1 for snare and 1 for bass drum.

comment Is there a “standard” or “typical” drum kit layout?
In practice there is no real Standard set up, because you need to adjust the positioning of each individual element to suit your person. Each kit is unique to its user. that's the way I see to be honest.

That will greatly reduce the life of your cymbals also. You are aware of this right?
