i'm trying to show my cousin how to play raining blood the way i learned it and have always played it. when i showed him the really fast section after the galloping frenzy, he saw what notes to play and rather than picking each note as i assume most do, he used tapping. i tried it and i gotta say, it works out really well. does anybody else play it like that? i've been playing it for at least a year and a half and never thought to use a tapping technique in that section.

yeah, i chicken-picked Eruption all way through until last year, what do you know?

oh and most Slayer songs can be played by putting a vibrating toothbrush on the E string and palm muting

well tapping is smooth and slayer is mostly about heavy picking.

exactly, theres tons of way to play different songs. you can play the same notes, but the tone will be different based on the technique used, for example downpicking vs. alternate picking, same notes different sound.

I use the same method a bit, not for that song in particular. For example, Dragonforce- Through the fire and flames (if you look at a live video you will find they do it also) and for the crazy train-ozzy solo
