This is in the first clean solo in the song, could someone explain to me real fast wtf raking is? I've heard it often used in comparison to sweeping, are they the same thing? Because I already know how to sweep (Basic stuff)

Quote by Metallica rulz
its just basically sweeping down the strings without stoping to alternate pick. its one motion a upward motion.



...so just a downward sweep, wtf why is it called raking?

Yeah you dont really need to play it as a sweep. Just a quick chord, it actually sounds better in my opinion
