a little help with Anesthesia...

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by heretic, May 17, 2005.


  1. What is the proper way to fret this part?

    G:------10-14----10-14----10-14----10-14----10-14---
    D:*--12-------12-------12-------12-------12-------12-
    A:*----------------------------------------------------
    E:-----------------------------------------------------

    I am thinking it is :

    12= ring
    10= index
    14= pinky

    but that is a huge stretch for me and it doesn't feel very comfortable. Is there a better way?

    THANKS :bassist:

    wow anestesia.. i forgot how much fun that solo is to play.

    anyway, the way i play it is middle on the d string then 10 on the g is my index and then pinky on the 14.

    the easier way to play it is 12 on the d with index, 15 on the d with either your middle or pinky finger (whatever is more comfortable for you) and then 14 on the the g with your middle or ring (depending on weather you use your pinky or ring for the 15th fret.) its a minor arpeggio repeated.

    I play it the way heretic described it, using ring, index, and pinky, but you can use whatever's comfortable
