\Megadeth/ "Tornado of Souls" Riff~Life 💜

I just thought I’d share my progress and practice of this awesome song. I know its very rough around the edges but I’m trying to bring it together. I am also thinking about the lyrics while I am trying to play and incorporate some of the picking techniques that I learned here from Guitar Hacks. The inside and outside alternate picking concepts really helped out here especially in the solo section. I know the tabs from which I am reading are close but not quite true. I will look for some other resources. Listening to the song and watching Kiko and Marty’s version of playing really helped me out the most!

I keep reverting back to my down picking unfortunately. I will stay close to it and be next to it and soon I will be away from my bad habits. My hands are still very sore from working on a carpentry project for my father. I am slowly regaining my hand. I have to finish up my guitar practice and ten songs on my set list today. My local venues around here are starting to open back up and I have a lot of work to do.

I am also working on a new cover from Metallica called “Blackened” And Yes Yes, with all this chaos going on in this world I think its time to color our word "Blackened’. :wink:

Best Regards to Everyone and Happy Practicing!



Great job my friend! Tornado of souls is no joke, it’s a tough song… especially that solo (particularly the second half of it)you’ve got it sounding good so far. I’m sure you’ll have perfection in no time.

Not too bad for one week… I’m about to get back together with a very old school friend of mine very soon. He’s an awesome drummer and played these kind of songs since the mid 80’s.

Were gonna kill it brotha! :wink::purple_heart:

Yeah! Really awesome @Frisco_Sensing! Pretty good job on the solo as well to the point where you stopped! I would need to practice that hard!
My Megadeth cover was much easier than your pick! You did really great!

That’s awesome! I’ve never attempted a Megadeth tune and I think it’s about time I try.


I admit it needed some work and I rushed to get it together. I have since improved on this song. I apologise for taking so long in getting back with you. I think your a pretty talented guitar player yourself and I think your awesome. Keep up the good work and Thank you Brotha! :wink:
