3 Classic Metal Riffs
This riff reminds of something off Fair Warning by Van Halen. We use a pattern that repeats every 3 beats, so there's a sort of syncopation that makes the riff really cook. As in the previous example, I use the 1st finger of my fretting hand to mute the low E string in between the upstrokes of my picking hand. This creates the silence that you hear on the beat in beats 2 and 3 of each measure...
