In this Raining Blood guitar lesson we are actually going to take a look at the first two guitar riffs in "Raining Blood" because I thought they sounded so cool going from one to the other that skipping either of them wouldn't be right. The first riff opens the track with one of those dissonant melodies that Slayer are masters at writing. This opening riff is rather simple to play and shouldn't give much of a challenge to most players. The second riff is where the speed is drastically kicked up a notch or two with a fast gallop rhythm. Pay close attention to how I pick this riff in the video lesson. Picking it in the way I will demonstrate in this Raining Blood guitar lesson will help you make that gallop rhythm nice and consistent. After the gallop rhythm we end the riff with a quick little melodic sequence. Be sure to keep those notes slightly palm muted (especially on the 6th string) in order to help those notes kind of pop-out better. As always, if you would like to learn all of "Raining Blood" simply like this video lesson on YouTube. As soon as it gets 600 likes I will teach the entire song note-for-note. In the meantime I hope you guys enjoy learning these classic thrash metal riffs! Carl..
