Melodic Death Metal Guitar Lick #2

A second look at a melodic "death metal" guitar riff/lick. This is using Drop B tuning down a half step. I figured if I put on a set of Dunlop Zakk Wylde strings with .60 low E I had better include a drop tuning lick. Again this was by request. Well outside my normal rock guitar playing style but I hope listeners can enjoy it and use the riff as a springboard for their own ideas. Note the muting on the low B. I used a diad inversion to give the riff a slightly different feel than with normal power chords. Ended with a little neo-classical style lick that I hear in this genre in my limited experience. Thanks for the request. Keep em Comin.
