Here we have another 16th note pattern, and we'll again be using only downstrokes to help our picking attack. When you practice this riff to the backing track, you'll hear guitar harmonies playing along with you. Let those harmonies guide you with your timing.
Also, the last measure in this section will be our "transition measure" into the solo. We'll be playing palm muted thirty-second notes on the Low E string. Practice this part very slowly at first. And remember, the metronome is your friend! :)
