I wasn't sure if I should put this in musician talk or here, but I decided to put it here since its not really an easy lick to play.

In this lick:

|-21-17----21-17----19-16----19-16----17-14----17-14----16-12----16-12----|
|-------19-------17-------17-------17-------14-------14-------12-------12-|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Would you play it strictly alternate picking, or do a kind of hybrid picking thing, D-U-U and so on?

Its somewhat fast BTW. From Jordan.
Gear List:

Ibanez AJ30ECE Acoustic-Electric

I don't think it matters that much, just do what you are most comfortable with.

I would personally alternate.

you don't do it... Its by friken Buckethead!!! No but seriously it seems like the only way your gonna have a chance at getting this close is by subbing in some legato pulloffs where he is actually plucking every noteand possibly transcribing (don't know if this would actually be easier, Id have to try it) the riff across the strings as well instead of just the two little strings. pm me if you ever manage to pull this song off with a recording or something. I'd like to see more than one person do it.

I doubt I would ever pull off the entire thing, but I just want to learn this section because its a cool lick and I could change it around and just use it for fun. But yeah I will try alternate picking and the legato sounds like a good idea too.

But I tend to inside pick FYI

And at fast speeds legatoing it wont make "that" much difference. Now I say "that" because I know some tard is gunna quote me and say something about how the notes are less "sharp" and ****, or how So and So does super fast legatos that don't sound like double picks or something of the sort. But its effin Buckethead its probably 200 BPM anyway.

Please use tags for tabs....

I would do that economy picking, although you can

alternate pick it
pull off the highest note
legato everything

There is no "proper" way to do this unless the original clearly uses one method for musical purposes.

i guess its triplets or sixtuplets?
cus it sound loads better as 16ths (and ending on a cooler note )
or you could completely swing it in 16th swing or fast 8th swing,
i would personally transpose it but this also has nice sound..

oh, and i guess i'd go alternate in every variation, maybe the triplet feel id go eco but not the sictuplet and def not the swing or 16th, why would you make it unnecessarily harder

anyway, fun lick, did you come up with it or did you borrow it?

It's from Jordan, by Buckethead. To OP, I've seen a lot of people tap the highest note and pick the B string.
