The opening riff to “Cowboys From Hell” off of Pantera’s major league debut is pretty much recognized as Dimebag Darrell’s signature riff.
It is a perfect example of the “power groove” style that Pantera pretty much invented on it’s own.
This Cowboys From Hell guitar lesson will cover both of the songs opening riffs including the upper and lower octave versions of it.
As with virtually everything played by the great Dimebag Darrell, these riffs are quite difficult to play for even them most experienced guitarist.
Take it slow and get the coordination down between the alternate picking and the fret-hand. If you try to play the riffs too fast too soon, it will feel like your hands are just tied into knots.
Also, the alternate picking can produce some awkward string crossing. The key here is to make sure your picking hand wrist and forearm stays as relaxed as possible. Practicing with a slow to moderate tempo in the beginning will help you develop that relaxed feel.
So I hope you enjoy this Cowboys From Hell guitar lesson. Love live Dimebag!!
