Hi. There is a very specific part of the guitar solo to Mannfred Mann's cover of Blinded by the Light that I can't quite figure out. The solo starts at 2:51 and the part I'm curious about starts at 3:40. At 3:40 the lead guitar does a little tremelo picking on a note that gradually gets quieter until it's gone. Then there is a whisper of a note. That's the exact sound I'm taking about. After That whisper comes a scream of that same note followed by the rest of his exclamation. How does he whisper that note so perfectly? The note is an A from bending the 15th fret on the high e. Any thoughts?

sounds like he just slows his picking down and lighten his attack with his pick. i could be wrong though.
