hello..i think i have a fingering problem with this riff:

|--------------------------------------|-----------------10-8--------------|
|-12-8---------8-11-8---------8---|-12-8----8-10-12------12-10-8------|
|------11-9-11--------11-9-11----|------11----------------------11---|
|--------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|


the speed is 139..my problem is mainly for the second measure
i can normally play faster and more difficult things but i don't know why i'm stuck in this one.. what do you think is the correct fingering?

(thanks)

CoB!

I basically rewrote the whole tab from that song, so I could play the song with no stretches at all in most licks If you'd like, I can search it up for you? I'm not sure if this lick didn't have any stretches in 'my' version though

yeah i'd really enjoy it..thank you all

update: I've just understood the problem..I didn't manage to play this lick because in the part when it goes on the 1st string i didn't lift my 1st and 2nd fingers from the fretboard. Now it's all right I can play it quite easily

This is the way I play it.. No stretches, just a finger roll at the end when it's repeating

Everything larger than 4 frets is a stretch imo.. In the first example you'd be in position 9, with a index stretch to fret 8. In my example, you're playing in position 14, with a finger for each fret from 14-17! Imo, that feels better
