Looks to me like a slide from the 2&4 frets up to the 7&9 respectively.

You can do it in 2 ways. Hybrid pick - pick the lower string (starting at fret 2) and finger pick the upper string (starting at fret 4), slide up and keep the hybrid picking going.

The other way is to use the finger, that is fretting the lower string, to mute the 4th string and pick across all 3 strings.

Two other options come to mind:

Change the sound of the piece and fret the 4th string at the same fret as the 3rd and turn it into a 5 chord (also known as a power chord)

Buy an octaver pedal. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Or if you pulled the tab from the net, buy a real Slayer tab book and see how it's really played 8)

Those are just the same notes on two different strings, they are both E, so he's playing octaves.

When I play those I would just normally fret the A string 7th fret with my index finger and let it lightly touch the D string to mute it and play the G string at the 9th fret with my ring finger.

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!

Yeah, those are just octaves. Let your index finger droop over lightly and mute the string below. Play the octave note with your ring or pinky. Use a wide up and down stroke, being careful to only strike 3 strings.

Gee, if he did that what would he need internet access for, much less
sites like these :)

I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but when
you're a 22lb sledge, do you really have to be?
