No, only the 14.
Else there would be 2 arrows (one above 14 and one above 15)
Also only the 15 in the 15onB + 12onE.

And it does sound weird if you don't bent it right away because the note you're bending the 14 to is the one that goes best with the 15 in that music.

Keep the D at the 15th fret, and just bend the A up to a B.


Yeah if that doesn't make sense. Bend the 14 on the 3rd string and keep the 15 on the 2nd.
Stop whining and learn your theory!

Yeah, some black guy with a yankees cap walks into the ice cream parlor, and I said "We dont serve your kind here," as in, yankee fans, i guess he thought something else and left.

Yeh you should only bend the 14

Enter Sandman as a first solo? Don't you think you're jumping a little in the deep end? lol

Good Luck

That's a really bad choice for a first solo, it's simple by Metallica standards but it's not what I'd call easy, and it's made harder by the fact that it's difficult to hear what's going on at times because of the wah.

My advice - ditch it for the time being, you're struggling right at the start and it gets trickier, and learn something more suitable for a first solo like Highway to Hell by AC/DC or All Right Now by Free.

You're not going to be able to play something like Enter Sandman until you've got a better grasp of the basic lead techniques it uses, such as doublestops, slides and bends. You should also spend some time practicing the techniques themselves before attempting any solos.

If you try to play something that's too far ahead of you without building up to it then yes, things are impossible.

Year and a half?? That's wayyy too much time IMO.
Mine was Hotel California solo, when I was playing for like 6 months.

Enter Sandman is bit hard dude, you'll get better by playing an easier solo.
[Also, when you will finish the easier one it will give you motivation to start learning another, it's addicting when you achieve success]
