O.k. I am looking for some brains to pick. I'm working on this song..


And what I'm thinking is picking the riffs and sliding the chords. What do you guys think?

I find it a lot easier to fret or finger the riffs and walking notes compared with sliding them.  Especially to get cleaner transitions.

Great song!
