Hi, here's a picture of a tab I'm trying to play, but I am having trouble with it (part of Keepers Of Fellow Man by ATR solo)



The trouble is, I have no idea how to pick the 13th fret on the B string. I'm sure I have my finger positioning right... but it seems physically impossible to roll the index finger on the 14th fret on D and G strings and then pick the next note which is on the 13th fret on the B string.

Can somebody help me and tell me the /finger position for this sweep?
I hope I explained well :/

Help is appreciated

It's actually not too difficult..

I'll try to draw a little tab explaining how I'd do it (and probably everyone else would)

e|
B|------------------------13-17-13 <- index, pinky, index
G|--------------------14 <- middle
D|----------------14 <- middle
A|------------15 <- ring finger
E|-8-12-17 <- slide index from 8th to 12th and hammer-on 17 with pinky


Hopefully you can kind of understand what i'm trying to say. It's easier than it looks infact.

Ah okay thanks. I was probably too lazy to try to stretch my pinky. Thanks for the help

e-------------------------------------
b--------------------13-17-13----index,pinky,index
g---------------14-----------------middle
d----------14----------------------index
a-----15---------------------------middle
e-17-------------------------------pinky

for the 6 string shape:

e---------------------------12-17-12--------------------------index, pinky
b---------------------13------------------13--------------------middle
g----------------14----------------------------14---------------ring
d-----------14--------------------------------------14----------index
a------15------------------------------------------------15-----middle
e-17----------------------------------------------------------17-pinky

you can pre-position your hand as 17.15.14.14.13.x, pinky on that lowest A. Very useful chord shape, practice it in lower registers as well.

My fellow sc Master league, I am afraid your finger positioning maybe be too awkward. The fact that you are immediately using the ring finger to place a not on the same fret adjacent to the pointer finger is bad form.

:-)

I think its superior to rolling and quite elegant. I use that concept in other situations quite a lot aswell.
