hey man i read your post again and i have a doubt? did you mean't a VST guitar amp simulator or did you meant just a guitar vst?? the ones that i posted on my previous post are guitar amps simulators but just in case you meant just guitar vst:

Electri6ity

That's the true definition of having a guitar on your keyboard, take a look at the sound demos they have, your head will explode due to the epicness of this beast

Yeah Electri6ity is the only one at the moment that doesn't sound like complete shit/liquid ass.

Though I suggest running the raw guitars from it into an amp sim from Lepou or TSE, then into a speaker cabinet impulse.

You'll have trouble getting a convincing guitar sound without actually playing it or getting someone else to play it. However, this is a good start: http://refx.com/products/slayer2/summary /

Uh, yeah a guitar vst. I'm a noob, so if I can find a VST guitar instrument with metal distortion already put in it, then I'll take it. Oh by the way, my budget is ZERO, so I'll need something free if possible(it's probably not.)

Also, I have a distortion VST called Redskull. I heard it's pretty good, but I have nothing to test it on. See, I can record my guitar, but it is a really crappy guitar, and also I use audacity to record, sop there's no point in trying.

BUT, if anyone knows a free, distortion-free guitar vst, there might be a possibility I could use Redskull on that, and have a decent sound. So if any of you know one, then please say so :)

I hope that's sarcasm, Slayer 1 & 2 are both awful!

You'd be better off putting distortion on a piano and tweaking it a bit to sound like a guitar (It's very possible and I'm not the only one who would vouch for this) if you're looking for something free.

Guitar VSTs are generally expensive if you want half decent quality, because the amount of sampling that has to go into a guitar VST to give it a sound that is even close to what a real guitar sounds like is mind boggling. The guitar is one of the most dynamic instruments on the planet, and is therefore ridiculously difficult to recreate electronically should you want all the dynamics that come with it (Palm mutes, bends, slides, harmonics, etc.).

So as long as you aren't looking to do anything to complicated with it, a piano with some distortion and a little tweaking can get you by. But if you want something more diverse, you'd be better off finding someone who can play guitar for you unless you're willing to dish out some cash.

Well, i can play guitar pretty good, but like I said, I have no recording techniques or equipment.

Anyhoo, about the piano. Can you show my how to do this? Or know someone who can?

Well, if you can hook your guitar up to the PC, there are a few free distortion effects out there (I couldn't really name any, as I've spent probably $2000+ on my guitars/equipment by now, so I've no need for the free stuff).

As for the piano, just grab a distortion VST, throw it on the piano and play around with the envelope and reverb a bit, there's really no perfect way to do it, it really depends on what kind of sound you want. I'd point you in the direction of the person that got me started on it, but I honestly can't remember who it was I picked this technique up from.

Impact Soundworks: Shreddage

Combining that with Electri6ty (whatevz the name) and the amps mentioned above you're pretty much set.

Avoid slayer 1 and 2 at all costs though.

Yeah Slayer is bad indeed, but this demo sounds pretty cool: http://refxcache.com/slayer2/slayer2.mp3
But yeah I agree, it still sucks.
