Im at 150bpm at the moment, any more and it gets messy.

So pleased at the moment though because i couldn't even attempt to play this until last month no matter how mant times i have tried in the past.

This is sounding great JP.

Your phrasing is so much more accurate than mine, but I get away with a lot at full speed because the mistakes are over so quickly Wink

I'd be interested in your fingering in the fast bit, it looks different to mine - and I've recently revised how I do that too. Could you tab it for me please?

Very good JP, well impressed!

I feel like I should be joining the current Midnight Express challenge, but I don't have an acoustic. Ho hum... I'm having enough trouble with Peacemaker Die to be honest. Doing my head in...

Cheers guys.

Mint- Yes ofcourse i will, i will do it Sunday if thats ok.

I am 99% sure the notes & phrasing are correct.

Fingering, picking & fretting is another story, i have also tried many variations, this way will work best for me i think once i get the swing of it.

On another note- my NB15 arrived yesterday, on a quick plug in first immpression i am blown away by the little fucker for the price of 80!!

Ill review it in more detail when i get chance to have a play Sunday.

Sorry this has taken so long, it's rushed, i have forgotten how to tab stuff as it's been so long, hope this makes sense.

haven't watched video yet (limited bandwidth) but that's different to how i do it

doh!

i see though, that you do a pull off to open string after the 5-6-5 slide (or just 6-5 slide) on the second part of the run... i always thought that might be the easier way, but it's always so hard to 'unlearn' the way you've taken months trying to learn

i've basically not been practicing this for a while... other stuff to do... but still fascinates me... every now and again i have a breakthrough where a minute difference in fingering (yeah) makes it a fair bit easier to play... then find out it's wrong and start again!

That's really strange, the part that I thought you do differently to me, you pretty much do exactly the same! Even watching a slower tempo vid isn't that revealing, it seems.

Thank you, by the way.

Don't know if this is known about, but it's my contribution to this thread.

As I've stated numerous times, if I can't learn a song I really like relatively quickly, it takes the fun out of listening to it and playing it. That being said, my playing has been stuck at mediocre for 25 years, but I still got tons of girls back in the day so Razz

Anyway, you folks have way better technical skillz than I would ever care to attempt. This site isn't much use for me but .............
