    The thing starts at 2'43

    I can t get it down for some reason. Must be the weird rhythm which I don t understand. Is there any logic in that ?

    Pretty standard metal riff and rhythm, use palm muting.

    The stuff he plays before that from the beginning is more complicated really.

    I can play the beginning of the song, at maybe 80 % of the speed, and i m stuck here. It s the rhythm which i have trouble with. I don t find any logic in it. I m just going to learn it bit by bit.

    Yeah the notation is weird, but hearing it it doesn't seem as complicated. Try beating it on a desk or doing it with your voice, it doesn't seem as complicated.

    Those are some triplets that are throwing you. I don’t know that I agree with the tabbing of that rhythmic structure.

    to me it sounds like a rumpa-tump-tump-tump, rumpa-tump-tump-tump rhythm borrowed from military music - the rhythm of a snare drum in a marching band. what he's playing seems to have at least two variations - different versions of that sort of rhythm - but the idea of just beating out the rhythm with your strumming hand sounds like it might help; got a drum around?

    the tab is weird..think there is a back stall of a sort..a pause a back pick..it looks like he wrote it out as a triplet then 2 single note..its the pause/timing i believe that makes the rythmic thing happen..when we do this stuff live, i stand right over by the drummer and lock in

    Whatever genre, if you are having a problem grocking a complicated rhythmic figure, get the rhythm first ... by muting all the strings with your left hand and use the muted strings like a percussion instrument ... just pick or strum the rhythm on the muted strings until you sync up with the video. Once you can "drum" the rhythm perfectly, add the notes.
    I find that easier and faster than trying to get the notes and rhythms at the same time.

    Thank you guys for the advice. I can play triplet, i just don t know when the E quarter note is going to pop. I m going to write it down like triplet, triplet, E, etc... It should work for me that way.

    hey quick idea, look up hardcore..metalcore,type beats and play along ..soon you forget you are playing and it becomes a natural in sync reaction to the beat

    This track reminds me why I don't like metal.

    The notation has that riff split in measures in a weird way which looks more complicated.
