Hi guys!
I have a question. How would you finger/fret this intro lick from Alter Bridge's 'Isolation'?


D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
F|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
C|---------------------------------|-12----7-----4-------------------|
G|-0-3-8-7-----0-8-7-5-------------|-8-----3-----0-------------------|
C|-0-3-8-7-0-0-0-8-7-5-0-0-000-0-0-|

How do you reach from the third to the eight fret? Also, the lick in the song sounds "smooth", but when played it sounds like seperate fretted notes... Any idea what I how I can play it like the song?

Thanks!

3 to 7 isn't that big of a stretch. It may take a while for your fingers to get used to it, but it's a pretty standard stretch. But I suppose you could change the 7 to a 2 on the 3rd string if you wanted, but that wouldn't be practical at all for the riff.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
