Try playing the tabs differently, listen to the song while looking at the riffs, I know, I was trying to learn Seasons in the Abyss and it didn't sound right either, that happens with a lot of tabs, just play the tabs different styles and speeds and you'll get it. I think Raining Blood was also like this for me

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
ok thanks man, i'm gunna try haveing a good listen to the track and watch the video and try and figure it out for myself. The solo is confusing me too because the sound of Jeff and Kerry's guitars are drowned in delay, i'll get it eventally though

I didn't have any trouble with raining blood, but then again the tabs i had were printed in a magazine and had advice on how to play them under each section.
