R means release.

^ When you release a string, you dont need to have it in a bend before hand.

If, you pull off, or release, you should give the string a very little bend, not enough to change the pitch, but enough to make the string vibrate again when you pull your fingers off.

doesnt have to be, could just pick 5 then pull off. like 5p0--5p0.


'r' and 'p' are kinda the same thing.

I would assume |----5r-5r----| would mean |------5p0-5p0-----|

You guys are complicating matters way too far. Just play what you hear in the music, if not, play what you think sounds right, it wont make that much of a difference.

First off, why on earth would you use a tab that has less votes and a lower rating than the one RIGHT below it?? Makes no sense.

Second, I've never heard of 'r' referring to pulloff, so I gave the song a listen and I concur with this tab:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/n/nirvana/lake_of_fire_ver2_tab.htm

he bends 5 to 6 then "releases" it, or bends back down, to 5 again over and over, then plays the 3.

Choose the right tab, not the easiest. And remember, you can't play the song based on the tab alone, you HAVE to listen to the song.

Dont make me laugh.
Are you honestly telling me, that theres absolutley no theory at all behind all those arpeggios, sweeps, scales, modes, licks, harmonics etc?

There is ALOT of theory that goes into shredding.

So whats the theory behind arpeggios? Chord notes played seperately. Sweeps? Fast arpeggios. Licks? Improvisation, or make things up as you go. Scales=Modes. Harmonics? Rest your finger over the 5 7 or 12 fret.

Woah, that was a lot.

Someone got banned... awww

I wasnt talking about the theory behind arpeggios, but how they are linked into one another, and how other things link into each other.
