Been trying to learn this lick for a while…can’t figure out the best picking once I get to the high e string. Anyone have any advice?
Assuming these notes are the right ones, on the high E I’d play the 10 with the index finger and then 12, 10, 8, and 7 with fourth, third, second, and first fingers. This is then reversed for 7, 8, 10 and 11, and then a slide with the little finger into 12 which is picked as you arrive at the twelfth fret. The rest follows the same fingering pattern.
I’m not sure your tab is correct. After listening to the run in 0.25 speed I’m pretty sure these are the notes he plays.
It starts with a swept three-note per string scale run (E-minor scale starting on 9th fret on A string) and goes into his trademark fours along the E-string, ending with the standard Black star lick that’s just extended with notes of the E-minor scale down to the low E. Sorry I don’t have tab of this.
That TAB is wrong
Here’s a project if your interested
1 - Check out the TAB with Guitar Pro
2 - Create a new file and copy the intro lick into it
3 - Check the TAB using Transcribe! to slow down the playback
4 - Make any corrections if you find any note errors in the TAB
5 - Post your new improved TAB here
