I think ive finally nailed the "top gun anthem" ( dont laugh! ) so ive decided to move onto this tab -

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/black_sabbath/paranoid_ver2_tab.htm

Paranoid by Black Sabbath.

The bit after the palm muting - 7 9 - this bit.
5 7-9 7

I cant get it to sound right for some reason, i play both the 7&5 at the same time, then 7 to 9 quickly ( or should that be a hammer-on? ) then the 9&7 at the same time. It seems to have one note too much to me, listening to the song, you have 3 audible notes - not 4 like you get with the above.

Second question - anyone learnt "Apache" by the shadows? Im having trouble with this piece -

333 3333 333 3333
3 3 3 3

Ive got a thick pick and cant really get clean notes unless i go really slow, would a thinner pick improve things or should i just practice my alternative picking more?

Thanks

You strum the first power chord 3 times, just downstrokes (I only finger it on two strings in the case of this song, it's easier). Then do the 7 hammer on to 9, then do the other 7 and hammer on to the other 9, and there you go. At least that's how I do it.

I didnt really mean that bit, i meant the next part.

Its something like 11x9's then 7x7's and then the part i listed -

7 - - - - - - 9
5 -- 7-9 -- 7

It just doesnt sound right.

Right at the end of the 7/5's - do i play

5 -- 7 -- 9
5 -- 7

or

5 -- 7 -- 9
---- 5 -- 7
