You see this in so many songs that you would think everybody would be able to do it perfectly, but I'm never consistent with it:

------15--12---------------
---------------15--12------
-b14-------------------b14
-----------------------------
-----------------------------
-----------------------------

The tempo of this lick is usually triplets or 16th notes at somewhere around 130-140 bpm. I can play it, but sometimes I screw up the bend because you have to do it quickly. I usually bar the first position (in this case 12) and pick 15 on the e and b strings with pulloffs on the 12th, and bend with my 2nd finger on the 14th.

I chalk it up to not practicing this type of lick much at all, but I was wondering if there's a better fingering for it or an easier way.

Well.. this is the first time i've ever came across that lick.
But, that I did was use my middle finger for the 14 and bend with that, and use the ring for the 15s and index for 12s

Bend with 3rd finger, supported by 1st and 2nd.
Use and Pinky and 1st for the 15th and 12 frets.
Then Repeat first part.

That's how I'd finger it.


That seems harder, for me atleast

Me to. I find that most often people play something similar to this:

--------12--------------------12-------------------12------------------
-------------15--12---------------15--12---------------15--12--b15-
-b14------------------b14------------------b14-----------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


That's what I think of as a standard blues riff. Oh yeah, and it's easier.
