Hello members of UG, i've come across a barrier in learning Dave murray solo for Aces High, do to the part where he quickly pulls off on the high E string switching between and 8-5-0 pull off and a 7-5-0 pull off, as I am constantly pulling the high E string off the fretboard when attempting to do it fast.

Is there a certain fingering or way to bypass this problem? My guitar is set up properly i know for sure and the action is right and everything as i took it to a guitar repairman and he set up the floyd rose properly. So please any advice would be helpful on this topic, Thanks guys!

Try flicking upwards instead of downwards for the pull-off. I'm not sure of the context the riff is played in, so this might be bad advice, but I do it occasionally when working on the higher strings. Worth a shot.

Hate being the person to say play it super slow 60bpm or less if you have to.

Play with a metronome or drum machine (more fun IMHO) and concentrate on accuracy.

Learning for lack of a better term "Maiden triplets" takes a lot of work.

The bonus is once you learn the technique learning any Maiden song is much much easier.

You have to have the accuracy before you work on the speed.

All the speed in the world ends up sounding like mud unless you have the accuracy to play it correctly at slower tempos .
