ah ok, I see.... yeah, I guess it would be interesting to see some 'real world' examples of harmony usage depending on style. I mean it's all in there, it all comes from the same theory - it's just a matter of how it is used, be it Metal or Jazz.... this could make up some nice and inspiring articles.....

One aspect is how a tune is arranged. We've talked about this a bit already but it's certainly important when you think about how and why different styles sound as they do. Havin' 2 distorted guitars will sound heavy - take a jazz standard, make all chords power chords, add a straight 4/4 drum beat, and it will sound heavy - no matter what. Well, maybe not a great example but you see what I'm aiming at.

BTW: Iron Maiden love melodies played in 3rds as far as I can remember:D Is actually pretty cheesy if you think about it but performed with 2 dist. guitars (and/or bass) it sounds just damn cool.
