hi, i need some help on my guitar skills. right now im pretty much in to slayer and can play songs like angel of death but i'm no where near being able to play for instance the verse riff in silent scream. It may be faster, but i cant even play it slowly. im reffering to this tab:
The tab seems pretty correct, from what i can hear in the recording. My problem is the string skipping.
now because (atleast in my browser) of the font it looks screwed up but u get the picture. how in hell do i jump to the D string and play that '9' note? ive just played four '0's fast as hell and if im gonna hit the D string i cant avoid E and A. Ive all the time thought muting them by holding my left "pointing finger" (sorry english isnt my native language) loosely on E and A was the solution, but it doesnt seem to work very well and still E and A are going to make some noise, on the album u cant even sense that. also, what do i preferrably down-pick and what do i up-pick?
This riff is just an example, i have trouble with all songs that have this string skipping. sorry for bugging you with so much but here is a riff wich i can half manage, verse riff of song: necrophiliac
again the font screws it, the A string notes should of course be between the "222222" sets. This i play by hitting both E and A strings when i come to the '4', '5' and '2's, but muting the E string with my finger. it sounds pretty good but still the E string makes some noise (not much though but i cant hear any on the recording). after the part i have here, instead of one of the '4's its a '4' on the D string as a variation, and thats really hard to get to sound good.
So what am i doing wrong. have i been approaching this in a totally wrong way or what? please need help!!! I would really appriciate it since i feel its a barrier in my development ( or something^.^)
Thanks / Pillows
