If a clean tone is dialed in: Rhythm Changes in C, just simple triads once through to get it fresh in my mind, then a second pass with some simple arpeggios instead of chords.

If the gain is up: Symbolic by Death, Redneck by Lamb of God.

On 6 - Haunted Shores Chord, then Insomnia by Periphery or some of my own material
On 7 - Haunted Shores Chord, then Flourish by The Contortionist or some good ol' Icarus Lives solo, then maybe eventually my own material.

I usually keep things mixed up. Anything from Deftones to The Facless. Lately it's been Sad But True's main riff in B Standard

No bitch picking!

The first thing i do to check how it sounds to my ears at that time is pop the switch to the neck pickup and play some E ionian holdsworth type run that sounds similar to how i write.

My writing and playing style is pretty weird, and relies a lot on improvisation, so after that i just improv some stuff in whatever key or mode i feel like. And a lot of the time I just ignore theory and see where my fingers go.

E & A minor, G & C major chords for tuning check.
A bunch of random At The Gates riffs.
Benighted by Opeth.

I'd probably do more if I played guitar for more than 10 minutes at a time lately.

In standard I have a tendency to play a friend's rendition of an old blues song called Nobody's Fault but Mine, or Vicarious by Tool if it's in drop D. My guitars practically live in open D minor lately, so more often then not, I play the intro to Ghost of Perdition by Opeth.

Do you see some of those big imposing Securitrons with their lovely laser guns and rocket launchers and scary faces? I am not one of those.

Tune, a chord or two, scale run, honestly whatever I am feeling. 6,7, or 8, it's not often the same. But to hear intonation, harmonics, and overall resonance, I always play a few measures or about half of Vai's "Die to Live".

My guitar.

















Depending on which one I'm using it'll either be chugging on an F followed by mindless clean derping on the higher strings, ripping off Amon Amarth in B standard, or trying to be Devin in Open C.

I let loose a thunderous, metallic 'clang' on my low low E string.
