Ok so I've been working on the main riffs for Arpeggios from hell by Malmsteen and I can play most of it at a decent speed except for this E harmonic minor lick. I need some advice on how I can play this part better.

I was wonder what is an efficient fingering for this lick ? Also currently I am playing this downstroke, upstroke, upstroke. Should I be picking this a different way?

sorry if i posted this in the wrong section

Sounds like your method is fine TS, is there a particular thing about this lick that means you find it awkward?

I think my fingering might be the problem, maybe if I change my fingering it might help
Currently I'm playing it like this:
  4  2  2   4   1   2
-15-12----15s14-11----|

I find that is the natural way to play it.

That's it for me. And I think that's how Malmsteen plays it. Just pull off from the Gb to the Eb and the F to the D. That makes it alot easier for me.

EDIT: There's a slide from Gb to F in there? I thought it was just Gb-Eb-Bb then F-D-Bb?

Exellent, that way feels more natural to me, I'm going to keep playing it that way, hopefully I'll be able to get it up to speed. Time for a ****load of practice.

The slide from Gb to F is in the version 1 tab. The other versions and the Guitar pro just have the Gb-Eb-Bb, F-D-Bb.

Thanks everyone for the help!

YOINK!

Just rehashing this thread with a new question rather than crack open a new one. I've been having a veeeeeery slow go at AFH for the last couple of weeks. I've just noticed two different versions on here play it differently.

I refer to to the two descending diminished runs in the main riff. It's lines 4 and 5 on each tab.

Ver 1: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/y/yngwie_malmsteen/arpeggios_from_hell_tab.htm his starts the run on A#, 18th fret of the e-string, then starts the second run a step down.

Ver 2: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/y/yngwie_malmsteen/arpeggios_from_hell_ver2_tab.htm starts the run on A, 17th fret of the e-string, and then again starts the second run a step down.

I hope you can see what I'm talking about! So should the dimished run start on the A or A#?

It doesn't have a "tune." It's just an endless barrage of notes! :-p



Yes it has a tune, it is actually quite musical
