I learnd it from this video and i don't know, but are you supposed to go like just go fast and like add a high picksound in every end of powerchord you set. Or just go on and play and do it like you want or witch is best for you ? Cause i don't get the same sound as him, well mabye bacause his AMP and Guitar is kickass compared to mine but anyway, please tell me how to strum or how i should do ?

Thanks!

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

aw, poor kid.

in answer to your question. . .it sounds the way it does because or the way he mutes the strings the majority of the time but unmutes to give this rhythmic stabbing effect.

If you count it, I think the chord stabs occur on the 2 beat, the 'and' of 3 and the 'and' of 4.

Good luck, guitar and bass basics forum next time.
