Hi.

I need some advice. I find this lick pretty simple but when I try to play it fast it's really difficult. Especially because I have to move my finger from the B string to the e string all the time.

E||------9-----------9-----------9-----------9-------||
B||--12b---12p-9-12b---12p-9-12b---12p-9-12b---12p-9-||
G||--------------------------------------------------||
D||--------------------------------------------------||
A||--------------------------------------------------||
E||--------------------------------------------------||


Any advice on how to play it to make it less difficult?

You could try barring across both strings at the 9th fret, but I don't recommend it.

Just do it slowly first, with the index finger moving between strings. I can do it.

Ive tried barring but I find it difficult to bend the string then.

I'll just have to practice it alot then.

You'll probably have heard it before, but start off slowly, until you can play it well slowly, as you say you can do, then build up the speed gradually. practising with a metronome helps too.

Barre the E and B strings with the index finger.

barre-ing is lazy in my opinion. as 'the other guy' said, just start slowly

eventually it'll become 2nd nature

slash has a tutorial somewhere with a similar lick

i only consider it lazy in regards to this particular lick, not in general
