Hi!
I'm trying out this Rude Mood (at least the main riff), and I was wondering, what do you do on the up stroke to get that sound? I can't really describe it, if you listen to the song you'll probally know what I'm talking about. Do you it the strings open, or do you muffle them and rake them? I hope you kinda understand...

Thanks for any help.

Yes to all.

You will only be fretting the actual notes -- "the bass walk thingy" -- the other strings will be open but frethand muted and raked on the up stroke.

Same concept as in pride and joy, cold shot, I'm crying are 3 more examples.

I find it easier to keep a "metal" like feel to the strumming. Like the Chuga Chuga but try to include all the strings not the 2-3 strings atypical to the metal type groove.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Thanks, it's was hard to figure out the rythm down when he (Stevie) is playing so fast.

Thanks for your help!
