I have been playing guitar for about 7 years now. I've started with classical guitar, grew up with punk music and I have a decent playing style.
I've freshly started in a band who plays metalcore (I've been listening to that genre for about a year, but I've never played it). We are two guitar players and while the other guitarist is a die-hard metal guitarist, my techniques are way too "punky" and not precise enough for being an essential part of the band. He advised me to learn this song to get started with metal/metalcore basics.
I really struggle with precision and the typical "djent" or "chuck" guitar technique (fast strumming on the lowest string, same rhythm as the double bass) and I need help to learn that technique. I am extremely motivated to learn a whole new genre and to get more technical!
Do you guys have any good advice on how to approach a whole new genre without getting frustrated and on how to be a precise guitarist?
