I am struggling to play this section of the solo. The tricky part is the bend 12th fret bends on the high e and the B string. I believe you are supposed to bend up on the high e string and then bend down on the B and the high e. I am struggling to keep hold of the High e if I am able to grab the B string.

Is there any particular way to approach this? When I bend up and grab the B string, the high e just slips from my fingers.

Hi Ben, in this case, you are right! you are supposed to bend up on the high e string and then bend down on the B and the right e.

It takes alot of practice to learn that kind of stuff. But, there is a way to aproash this. bend up the B string, without it slipping out. Heres a tip.

If you are struggling to keep hold relax your fingers, make sure your fingers move very little and can play the B string.

Learning this kind of technique is very important. If you have any other questions about this, post it here, or contact me via pm.

Cheers,

Sorry about that. I've editted the tab. The first 12 fret bend on the b string is actaully pre-bent as you need to push it up whilst bending the 12th fret on the high e. You then need to grab the b string and bring both the high e and b down at the same time.
