Does anybody know what fingerings to use and whether I should downstroke or upstroke in this lick? (from the 22p- on)
Thanks!

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.

The sweep needs a rolling bar. I use that shape all the time. The most common way to play it would be 1 4 3 3 2 1 4 to get to the top of the arpeggio.

Then, for the second part, I'd switch positions to play the note on the 17th with my ring finger. That should put the rest of the notes within reach. That's just me though. See if it works for you, but it's in no way the only way to play it.
The guy's a beast, but he uses 8s. So he's shit.

Personally, I'd just make it easier to play:

E||------------------17h-22p-17----17p-------
B||---------------18------------18-----18----
G||------------19-------------------------19-
D||---------19-------------------------------
A||--17h-20----------------------------------
E||------------------------------------------
B||------------------------------------------

No sense in making it difficult

That depends entirely on where it goes afterwards though, that fingering might be easier for that little osolated lick but if you need to end up lower on the neck for something else then the original fingering is better.

Sure, but I'd guess he's probably right - some things are horribly tabbed or imported from something else and not refingered.


Depends really, I'd say if it was something by say Marty Friedman that tab is likely to be accurate; he's not exactly known for doing things the easy way

Marty's really good at fingering things imho, as weird as his lines are I don't think I've ever seen one I think "Ok, why doesn't he just try this..."

I'm a stickler for good fingering, tbh, makes life sooooo much easier.
