This is my first post so apologies if this doesn't come out right once it's posted. Corey and Matt play the first lick in the main riff like this live.

I understand what you mean dude, but they're the same notes so it doesn't matter which way they're played

Yep. I tried playing it both ways and I thought it sounded better(cleaner) played that way. Thanks for all the kick ass Trivium and Machine head tabs btw.
