The “Rise” solo by Nuno has been covered and explained thousands of times on Youtube. Until now I thought Nuno would play it in such a way that he always strikes the open string and then plays the two following notes with hammer ons, no matter on which string the notes fall…
This would result in a fairly even pattern: Pick - H- H
But now there are the first live videos on Youtube, how Nuno plays it.
If you reduce the speed to 0.25%, it looks to me clearly as if he had chosen a different pattern.
I haven’t figured it out yet though, what exactly he is doing.
Has anyone taken a closer look and can tell me exactly how he’s playing it?
