Ya know something... Risk really ain't that bad. It's not heavy thrashy Deth but it's 'fun'. I much prefer it to Thirteen and Super Collider.

Hey guys, guitar question. When you play Holy Wars what picking method do you use for the main riff? When you hit E 6 times then hammeron from D to E on A how do you pick that part? The 6th note on E is an up stroke alternate picking then hitting the hammeron just seems weird, it throws off the rhythm of the song. Does Mustaine down pick the whole thing like Metallica loves to do? I've played the riff a million times and can't get it to feel quite right, I can play Malmsteen sweep picking easier than Holy Wars.

but it's not triplets those 6 notes, it has like a machine gun esque chugging quality to it, which I can do, but then hitting the d right after feels awkward. For some reason this riff is one of the hardest things I've ever tried to play, it's amazing how having dynamic picking rhythms makes a song way harder than anything else.

I just alternate pick it and downpick the D. It might take some practice to nail it, but that's how one would generally play a riff like that.
