Drill Technique 2

Animated Drill Technique 2 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Once you can play Drilling Technique 1, this ActionTab is for you. Here we apply the Drilling technique along with other simple rythmic statements - namely - fast open chord stabs and note picking.

Previously, in Drilling Technique 1, the main focus was on your strumming hand. The fretboard hand stayed in one position throughout. In this ActionTab there is more work to be done on the fretboard, so take your time and get it right!

The riff is still centred around powerchords (E - Bb - E - F). Stab the Bb chord quickly and with an open stroke (quickly raise the edge of your palm off the strings to stop palm muting just for that one strike, before placing it back again and rocking onwards). The F powerchord is picked - note the first 2 notes are palm muted, the second two are open again.

Blending techniques like these together with drilling can form the backbone of a true metal riff.
