Its from Love In An Elevator (Aerosmith), about 1/3 of the way through the solo, and its driving me nuts! I can't seem to find a way of fingering it where I can do the bends and get the A at the end of the bar in time argh! I just seem to tie my fingers in knots.

It probably doesn't help that I can't make up my mind. I've tried barring the F# and B, but then I can't do the full tone bend without pushing the B sharp, I tried using my first and second finger, but then I can't get back for the A in time, and I tried using my second and ring finger - which get tied up in knots at the end lol. Halp pls?

Edit: by in time, I don't mean up to speed - I'm playing it at about 40bpm or slower, which is less than half speed

Use seperate fingers on each fret if you can. say finger 2 and 3 for the 19's one finger 1 for the 17

Edit: if that made no sense, index and ring for 19's and the one next to the thumb (forgot what you call it) for the 17th fret

I would use my ring for the F# and pinky for the B. You can bend to the G with the ring finger, and that leaves both the middle and index finger free for the A.

Ooh I hadn't thought of that - my pinky was just sitting there keeping quiet lol. I'll give it a go thanks


If that doesn't work I guess I'll go for ring and second finger and just persevere til either I get it or my fingers fall off hehe

Thanks guys

Edit: Yay pinky works! Thankyou!!!
