Almost ... LOL
Hey Ken, I have a question re the 32nd-note run right before the chorus:
Assuming all alternate picking, and starting on a downstroke, I just cannot get the final string transition clean, when switching from the b to e. Down stroke on b, then upstroke on e. I've tried backwards pick slant, but that isn't working for me. But if I switch to starting the run on an upstroke, all the string transitions are easier, and favor a downward-facing pick slant. I suppose I answered my own question, but I'm still curious...
Did you find this run a problem to get up to speed? How do you pick it?
The downstroke-to-upstroke string transitions when going to higher strings always give me trouble, and I've practiced the 4-note, 16th-note triplet Paul Gilbert exercise till I'm blue! I can get them, but on the thinner strings, especially high up the neck, it's just frustration. And I recently switched to a JP Jazz 3, which does help, but still.
Thanks for any help (from anyone!)
I think he was going for this:The first one is 4/ 17 15 14 15 17; 3/ 14 16 17 sl 19 17 16 17 19; 2/ 16 17 18 sl 19 18 17 18 19; 1/ 17 18 19 (how I play it) Bold 16 is 18 2nd time.
