What's the best way to play a powerchord, way 1:

|-------------------------
|-3----------------------
|-1----------------------

or

|-3-------------------------

Please tell me what probably works best for death metal.

Well if it's on a tab, I guess you might as well go with whatever the tab tells you to do. I prefer playing the second one, just because it sounds more full to me, and I like using more fingers for whatever reason. Granted I never play death metal, just do whatever is more comfortable to you.
