Anthrax - This one line has me Caught in A Mosh
I've been trying to play CIAM for what seems like forever now, I've pretty much worked out everything in the song except for one part, the line that goes
I know someone that reads this might play the song differently but that's how I do it. Now the problem is those two zeros. Since there's a bunch of fast notes on the A string I put my thumb on the E string so I don't hit it, so when the 8700 part comes up I have to quickly move my thumb back onto the pickup and then back onto the string. Moving my thumb back and forth is no problem since I've done it so much doing scales, but for whatever reason I just can't hit those zeros. I can do it perfectly practicing at the exact same speed as the song, but whenever I play it with the song it's a total train wreck. My fingers just seem to skip over those zeros no matter how much I practice it. I can do it half speed full speed standing or sitting, no matter what I can't do it to the song. Even when I have the song blasted into headphones in my ears to hear it better I still have trouble. Any suggestions from anyone that knows this song and might read this?
