So I am trying to learning Megadeth's Countdown to Extinction album as I know most of Rust in Peace. The issue is I have some trouble with songs like Five Magics(the intro riff), Poison was the cure(main riff) etc so I figured I would go with slower tracks first. I have one question about "Ashes in your Mouth" as the intro is something like this:

Does anyone actually play it like this? As in the E5(no octave) first and then the B perfect 4th following it? Same goes for the F single note chug followed by the C perfect 4th interval. In all the videos I have seen of people playing it it looks like they just hit an E5(with the octave) twice and then an F5(with octave) twice.

Which is the correct way? The riff seems much too fast to be able to hit those select notes with such accuracy, even before factoring in the palm mutes. Is there a lesson here for this track? Couldn't seem to find it. Thanks heaps in advance!
