Metal Madness - Exercise 5 Metal Madness - Backing Track

This last exercise involves some intense speed picking and is a bit tricky.

On the 2nd beat of each bar, do you see how we'll be playing 16th note triplets? Make sure you keep alternate picking throughout.

Now, look at the very first note of the 3rd beat in each measure. We have a single 32nd note. So immediately after we play that 16th note triplet pattern in the 2nd beat, we'll play a quick 32nd note as well. This small addition makes that 16th note triplet pattern a little more difficult. Make sure you watch the video closely to really let the rhythm sink in for this exercise.

Once you have this exercise down, head on over to the next page for the backing track!
