Man, I hope this hasn't been covered dozens of times already but I had a simple question about the intro riff to the Four Horsemen. A well known video lesson on youtube says that you alternate pick the riff with the open E and use the 7th fret (A string) and 5th fret (A string)....some tabs show a hammer on, some show a series of pull offs...

Which one would you guys use:

Still didn't answer his question.

Tab #2 is how it's played. There are also some other inconsistencies in tab 1 which are not correct, like end of the first line (end of riff). That is completely wrong.

Also in tab 2, the first bar of line 2 should be replaced with the last bar of line 3. That tab is otherwise completely correct. I've played this song for almost 20 years, so trust this n00b.
