What string is this on? If you're having trouble, try playing it on a lower string but higher on the fret board. Since the frets are smaller, you wouldn't have to stretch as far.

It's doable with average sized hands. You could also do it cross handed where you're right index finder holds the 2, and you tap the 12 to 9 with the little, and index finger of your left hand. Another way would be to hold the 2 with your left hand and tap the 12 to 9 with the little and index of your right hand. It's the same idea as the first but with out having to get in to the cross handed position. Either way it makes it so you do a small stretch instead of a large one.

not if you're attempting this after 2 months since u started playing the guitar

Then don't play something so hard when you're still in the baby-steps stage of the instrument.

Disagree with this, I'm where I'm at today because I shot for the stars. You're probably right in the fact the OP will probably get discouraged as hell (because when I first attempted Yngwie after 4 months of playing I did want to shoot myself), but because I kept at the Yngwie stuff my skill blossomed way faster than anyone around me. Of course this left my chord knowledge (shapes only, sort of; despite knowing the basic arps) behind but set my finger independence up huge so I could pick it up in a few days :p

Never set the bar low.


... though of course if the OP is confused on how to hold the guitar/can't make two fingers rub together for dick all then I'd definitely agree with you there.

Play something challenging, yes. Trying to tackle a semi-difficult Van Halen piece involving tapping on an instrument that isn't so receptive to tapping after only 2 months, no.

This!

The guitar is very idiosyncratic, so it simply repeats itself. I have large hands and 2 to 7 is hard.

I've seen Eddie play this song live and he played it on the middle of the neck, D and G strings mostly.

If that 2nd to 7th fret is on the B string for instance, then simply move your hand up to the 6th fret of the G string and play 6th fret to 10th fret.

2-7 isn't that big of a stretch when you work on finger dexterity and other stretches. Incorporate 5 to 10 minutes of stretches into your practice routine and you should be able to do it in no time.

The largest stretch that I feel is possible on a guitar is a perfect tenth, first fret low E string to the 7th fret D string. Looks like this...

-7-

-1-


A good practice chord is the Shawn Lane Chord, also known as "The worlds hardest chord".

--0-
--6-
-12-
-10-
-8--

Middle, Ring and Pinky for the 8, 10, and 12, then use your index for the 6.

Probably just make that one easier by moving the B note to the next string so the 9 on D now becomes 4 on G
