I picked my guitar back up after some months and tried to learn a solo from my teenage years. I just can’t get this line clean though (never could). Especially the single note with the question mark above seems to throw me off.
How would you play it?
I’m a natural upward pickslanter and can’t really make it work (without audible swiping). If it would be all UWPS, no problem. If I understood Troy’s pickslanting primer correctly though, this line would be a case for TWPS, but it kinda seems pretty hard to switch the slant that rapidly for that single note to stay in the thinking of [last note upstroke -> DWPS] [last note downstroke -> UWPS].
Can you help me out with some ideas? Just keep practicing with the mechanic indicated in the image or is there another trick I don’t know about (not including throwing in a hammer on or pull off)?
By the way, it’s the intro solo of Deadnight Warrior from Children of Bodom’s debut album.
