Hi guys,

I'm practicing figure 2:8 on this page;

http://www.guitarworld.com/art-shredding-m...-enemy-and-more

I can't decide whether that should be done full alternate (except for the 2 power chords at the start) or switching back to a downstroke for each group of 1/8th + 2 16/ths. It sounds better and more metal without sticking to alternate picking, but I guess that will limit the speed of it?

I suppose an answer might be to learn both ways. Thoughts?

I would treat it this way:

Keep Your right hand movements able to do regular downstrokes on every 1/8 ...then only add the upstrokes while You have to bring 1/16. Just add the upstrokes to the regular 1/8 movement and it should be ok. Regular movement will also make You keep a better timing.

Hi mate! The best right hand combination for galloping is DOWN - DOWN - UP. Using this combination, you will get the correct sound and accentuation used for metal music easier. You won't have problems in the future, you just have to practice hard.

Let me share two great lessons based on this topic:

Yeah...Gabriel we both had same solution in our minds but I hope writing it down in two different ways might help him to understand what we're talking about smile.gif
