Hello guys
Ive been playing for almost a year and now i want to learn before i forget by Slipknot


This is the intro, but i find it very hard to do that riff on 3 strings and a little hard on 2 strings so what should i practise to learn these kinds of riffs i general?


D. 0h2--0h2h3p2
A. 0h2--0h2h3p2
E. 0h2--0h2h3p2

Etc etc

#1 practice it slow to the point the fingers fall into place each and every single time.

YouTube it and see if other people are using the same fingering as you for sometimes it helps to use different fingers and we don't always think of that so seeing how someone else is doing it, then trying it, and see if that is more comfortable is a big help. My teacher does that for me here and there.

Try playing the riff just using the top string first.
Then once you've mastered it add the additional strings.

With this type of riff, you'll need to basically only use your index finger and middle finger.
index to hammer onto all the 2's and the middle to hammer onto the 3's and pull off.
these fingers will need to basically barre the top 3 strings.

Hope this helps.

Slipknot is surely understood for its consideration getting picture, forceful style of music, and enthusiastic and disorderly live shows.The band quickly rose to achievement taking after the arrival of their eponymous introduction collection.

That tab is actually kind of wrong, watch this from about 4:30 onwards:

Either way, this is a relatively simple example of this kind of playing (with certain notable exceptions, most Slipknot isn't exactly technical), so your best bet would be to practice exactly this riff.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
