DOWN-PICK­ING

Us­ing strict down-pick­ing en­sures a meaty, uni­form at­tack for riffs. If you reach your speed limit, sim­ply in­clude some al­ter­nate pick­ing. Check out James Het­field for se­ri­ous pick-hand tim­ing!

TAP­PING

The flash sound of a tapped lick is sur­pris­ingly easy to achieve. Ham­mer a pick­ing hand fin­ger of choice down onto a string be­hind the de­sired fret. Flick your fin­ger down­wards to pull off the note, and re­peat.
