A Metal Riff.

A bit of metal riffage for today. I was working on a guitar lick over a track by @scarebear and got distracted by a post of his on twitter for the new Avenged Sevenfold song -  the title track to their new album "Hail to the King". I haven't listened to a lot of Avenged Sevenfold but I I really liked the guitar on this track.
Anyway today's guitar lick is in the same tuning as this song as I was in the middle of practicing the main lick.
The tuning is a drop d down a half step. So from low to high the notes are C# G# C# F# A# D#.  The riff opens with a 16th note palm muted section then a half time slower part followed by an "Orion" inspired section. Here's the guitar tab and video. Have a great weekend.
