Quick question...how do you play a riff like this...

e|-----------------------------------------
b|-----------------------------------------
g|----------------------------------------
d|--5-----------------------------------
a|--5------------------------------------
E|--3---00----------------------------
e ss

its in2/4 time just to simplify but how do you play two sixteenths in a beat instead of four?
Skillfully.
What tempo? Unless it's mosh speed, that's not too hard.
Idont know what tab it was but I seen it before and I have been trying to figure out how to accurately play it.lets say its at 192 bpm.
Is it a song?

Anyways, I was wrong in my post above, there would only be two sixteenths if the power chord in an eighth.

I would count it like this:

5--
5--
3--00
____
1e&a

Sorry that's crowded. The powerchord gets "1-e-&" and the first 0 gets "&" and the second 0 gets "a". That is the first beat seperated into sixteenths.

...

Sorry I didn't really know how to explain that well.

in 4/4 time at a fast pace no its 4 beats with 4 notes per beat for the first 3 beats then the final beat has 2 sixteenths instead of 4

dick

but its funny
this thread isnt making any sense to me :S
well....play the chord and just get your index out of the way and play the 2 other notes alternate picking

if its really fast just upstroke the chord and fall down picking the 00

It's really stupid and nobody knows what the hell they're talking about.

Metal Society:

That's 14 sixteenths. That does not equal 4 beats in 4/4 time. That's 3.5 beats. Don't say "fast pace", give us a damn BPM.
I did just read my posts its 192 bpm and I think that it is actually in 9/8 0r 5/8 I cant remember
The whole eighth note followed by two sixteenth notes... Listen to just about any song by Iron Maiden. I'm sure you've heard the Trooper, and that bassline is a perfect example of an eighth and two sixteenths. It almost sounds like triplets, but it's simply three quick notes played in succession over a 4/4 rhythm.
