    Though they may not have lived up to your expectations, you can take comfort in knowing your child is doing what makes them happy.

    This isn't relevant to the actual thread topic as such, but whenever people are arguing about how famous/successful Dream Theater are, I always think of their collective faces when they asked Marco Minneman what his favourite Dream Theater song was, and he says he's never heard any.

    Hey guys, just wanted to know if anyone know which songs Periphery did, that sounded good, weren't straight noise metal, and were on six-strings. I've listened to them for a while, and I feel like it would be worth learning a fair bit of their music, but I'm lacking a 7/8 string and don't really like playing noise metal.

    So, any suggestions or recommendations are welcome! (I'm in the middle of learning Scarlet, currently.)

    6-string drop C is their most used tuning along with 7-string drop G#.

    To be clear on what I meant by what I said, I don't like playing noise metal. I'm okay with listening to it. Even with songs where the guitar doesn't seem to have any basis on theory, they compensate with vocals most of the time (see: Make Total Destroy)

    So, I'm not saying I dislike Periphery. I'm just saying I need stuff with theory.

    Mr. Jarzombek, as I recall? I like him a fair bit, including his guest solo with Obscura, and work with Spastic Ink.

    If you think there isn't theory behind Periphery songs, learn more theory.

    Why do people constantly think I'm saying they don't use theory at all?

    I just said they use theory. Sometimes they don't, but usually they do. Anyways...
