We have a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing to round things off, start­ing with clean picked arpeg­gios, mov­ing through palm muted open fifth string and power chord com­bi­na­tions, mov­ing into a short lead sec­tion. I’ve man­aged to cram a cou­ple of other con­cepts in too, namely sweep pick­ing in bars 15 and 16 and a half-picked de­scend­ing scalar fig­ure in bar 18. The trick to this is to al­ter­nate be­tween a legato string and a picked string to cre­ate a com­pro­mise be­tween all legato (smooth) and all pick­ing (stiff) that many play­ers pre­fer as it com­bines the best at­tributes of both.
