Practice SLOWLY. Keep all notes equal length....

and I probably wouldn't tap the 15th fret on the E string (unless its meant to be played that way by whoever). For that I'd just a downstroke then pull off to the other frets.

Your fingering is right for the G string part.

SLOWLY m8. Speed is a by-product of accuracy.

Sea of Lies by any chance?

That fingering looks okay, there's a video of Michael Romeo doing this on YouTube, look and see what he does.



Wow! There's someone else I've just discovered.

^ spend some time in the Shred Forum. In the meantime, Guthrie Govan, Shawn Lane, Allan Holdsworth, Paul Gilbert, Frederik Thorendal, Ron Thal, Buckethead.

Youtube em all.

And TS, your fingering is just fine, its just a tricky position shift. I'd recommend perhaps writing a few position shift etudes if you find that hard, or just focusing really hard on that shift. Either way, good luck, and once you have that down it's just memorizing the solo notes.
