Megadeth Riffage! - Performance Megadeth Riffage! - Riff 2 (Segue)

And we're off! With a blazing thrash beat and tons of intricate pick strokes - reminiscent of something from Megadeth's "Rust In Peace".

The first six bars are very much the same sort of "fast picking call" with a "two-chord answer" throughout, however in bar seven we are faced with one of Dave's most famous rhythm tactics which he has dubbed "Spider Chords". Follow the demonstration video closely and we'll examine exactly which finger movements will ensure the most quick, fluid and clean transitions between each power chord.
