I know if this is the right forum but I am baffeled at Jon Schaffers gallops,I look at tabs and they are not typical gallops can any one explain the rhy techniques Schaffer uses often to play his jaw dropping riffs?
#3
well any of them they seem to have rhythms like this in general


e|-0-000--0-000--0-000---------------------------------
all on the low e
#4
Ok, there he's just adding in an extra note between gallops, so it's timed E, ssE, E, ssE, E
I recommend alternate picking the whole thing. If you do, each set of four notes starts as a down stroke (it's broken up into a set of 1+3, which makes 4 notes per larger set). Keeping a downstroke on the downbeat makes timing the riff easier.
#8
In that case should it be 0-0000-0000-0000. In which case he's using sixteenth note triplets and the timing is :
e-sss
--333

Each beat. If you separate out the fourth 0 in each set how you did, the timing becomes e-sse for each set. If you give me an example song I'll check out what he actually does so I can help better.
