This is the opening lick to one of my favorite solos, but I'm not quite sure how to pick it.

They're all 16th notes, and Q = 140

|-------------------------------------------17-12------------12-|
|---------------------13------17-13-------------13-----13-----|
|--------------14---------14---------14--------------14--------|
|---------14------14---------------------------------------------|
|-12-15----------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Just to be clear, the 12-15 and 17-12 are hammer/pull offs
PM me for newts

I'LL ALWAYS NEED THIS

That's how I'd do it anyway.

economy picking (mix of sweep and alternate picking)

The last notes are definetly sweeped.

Alright, thanks guys. I'll work on hybrid picking it, since the guy who plays it tends to do that a lot in his songs anyways. I didn't think about that.

I'd finger it like that, Sweeping + outside picking.

This is how I would do it for sure.

This is most definitely Takayoshi Ohmura's solo isn't it?

Anyways... this is how I do it.

There is also a pull off between the 17 and 13.

I have one of his albums, what do I get?
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Sweep section 1 and 3, If you can make sense out of it, thats how Id do it. Follow through with the up and down strokes, basically sweep them

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but just an FYI to people; Takayoshi Ohmura uses a lot of hybrid picking in his playing.
