  1. Hey i'm trying to learn symphony X - sea of lies. I can play the main riff and all but I can't get the stacatto sound. Its 8 16th notes. I can play them to speed but does anyone have any advice how to get the stacatto?

    Wow that song is pretty good, i'm trying to learn it myself.

    I think i know what part you mean:


    I still cant get the part where have to use my ring-long-ring working together..

    anyway, when i do staccato i usually just press down the string fast and then take them off, maybe this wasn't any help at all but you did get a bump :p.

    Left-hand muting. Lift your fretting finger slightly right after you pluck each note.
