Right, been learning the solo to Stairway to Heaven. Pretty much got it. However, the fast part with the bends is confusing me a little. I've got the timing and the notes right and everything, it's just the speed. The only way I can get it up to speed is if I do a little sweep to pick all the notes, otherwise I can't get it fast enough. Is this how Jimmy Page or anyone else who can play the solo does it?
I play them single notes, you just need to be quicker. It really isnt that fast.
I haven't really concentrated on my lead playing that much since I started playing, I'm much more of a rhythm player so I haven't got particularly fast hands yet.
