OK, i'm working up to full speed on this at the moment. I reckon i am about 3/4 speed at the moment. There is a passage whivh is hampering my speed. I hope someone can help...

The bits i am referring to are in bold... What fingering do you use to play the E, D,G part?

G|--------------6-7-5--------------|------------------9--9----9----9------|

for the 12-12-12 on E D G just bar it sweep style. im sure that whole bolded part is played sweep style.

what i mean by barring it sweep style is to roll ur finger off so u dont let any 2 notes ring at 1 time.

You've got to apply a serious amount of pressure to barre it ! and it leaves you hampered for the next part. Is that how you play it?
#4
I play it with my index on the E, and my ring and pinkys on the D & G. Next I use my ring finger on the low G note with my index on the D and my pinky on the A#. Thats what I do for that section. Just find something that is comfortable for you.

I would just use my thumb to play the 12th fret on the e string and my index finger for the D and G, then just sweep it. It might be weird to do the 13 with this method though.

Cheers bumper, i've kind of been playing it like that but i get tangled up in myself when trying to up the speed. it's my most annoying bit...

Just practice it alot then, and eventually you'll either stop getting tangled up, or you'll find a better, more efficient way to play it. If you do, be sure and let me know!
