TapOut - Breakdown 1 TapOut - Breakdown 3

This part contains a continuous 16-note riff, with some off-beat accents occurring thanks to the placement of the un-muted notes in relation to the muted low C. This type of riffing can get really mesmerizing, so please use this riff as fuel for creating your own groovy ideas!

Technically, there’s not much to say here, apart from focusing on the picking pattern. Feel free to use any picking pattern you feel comfortable with, but I urge you to try my suggested pattern first, since this makes it really easy to get the up-strokes accentuated.
