Creeping Death (Fill 2)

Animated Creeping Death (Fill 2) tab by Metallica on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

During the outro is this final lead fill. Kirk uses only one hand to play fast successions of triplets here. Just get them right slowly first then work on the speed building.

The trick to this technique is to hammer / pull off the highest note with your 3rd finger (you can use your 4th if you prefer, but 3rd is stronger). As you are pulling off with that 3rd finger, put your 1st finger on the note below and pull it off instantly to sound the open string. This gives you a triplet (3 notes played in fast succession). Repeat.
