I use spider riffing to play a lot of my bands songs. It is a great technique and pretty simple. Dave Mustaine is the most famous person to use it frequently I think.

Spider riffing, huh???

Care to explain incase not all (or any) instructors know what that is. I never heard of it, does it require a Line6 Spider amp biggrin.gif

Say you are playing an E5 power chord with fingers 1 and 3 and you want to play quickly an F5 power chord next to it you use fingers 1 and 3 for E5 and 2 and 4 for F5 to quickly switch between the two without moving your hand. It is very useful in my bands music. I hope you understand that? Dave Mustaine invented the technique I believe and uses it a lot smile.gif
