Idea For A Metal Ballad

so, here comes the rhythm part which is based on 4 simple chords. i was trying to do something in the way Alex Skolnik (ex-Testament) played on Testament ballads, which as i noticed was not necessary playing difficult chords but taking easy ones and switching a lot inbetween the chord tones. by the way this rhythm is a good exercise for fingerpicking, so why don't you try to leave the pick and muscle your right hand fingers a little bit.
