    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!


    First time posting a thread in Beginners Q&A so please help out. I've been trying to play this tapping lick from the intro of 'Bite The Pain' by Death.

    continuation of Riff A.1

    Can someone please explain what the hell is going on there? I know fretboard tapping (or right-handed tapping if you wish) but I don't understand how this is to be played.

    I guess the 2nd t is actually for a pull-off. Does it sound right then?( i havent heard the song).

    This is the transition from the intro to the vocals part right? Its tap/pull off/pull off. Impossible to tap all three notes. And I tried it, with the pull-offs. Couldn't manage the speed but I thought it sounded right. Try it with the pull-offs. The tab is wrong.

    Alright cool. I figured the tab was wrong because as tejas said it's impossible to tap all 3 notes. It sounds better with pull-offs.

    Thanks for your help people.
