The riff in question here is the main riff of YYZ.

It goes like this according to the tabs on here:


I'm not quite sure if this is even right... When I play it, it just sounds wrong... especially the second measure.

I'm currently alt-picking it all. Maybe if you guys could provide me with a better picking pattern...
Could you guys help me on a more efficient picking pattern or is alt picking a good idea?

And are the notes on the A string pull offs?
