    I think this shows up what's wrong with tabs quite nicely - there is no rhythmic or tempo information and so unless somebody has heard the tune, it is absolutely impossible to say how this should be played from what has been copied in this post.

    If it was standard notation, I have no doubt that a large number of people on this board would be able to comment on the correct fingering and the best way to play it.

    Well, I'm not well versed in tab (I can barely understand them), but try this:

    If I can explain it rhythmically - treat the 10-12-12 patterns as a triplet (these are I-V-VIII intervals). The middle section is kind of a trilled walkdown (starting note, trilled up, and then down). I've tried to block out the three sections of the phrase, so I hope this helps. Use your ear to help interpret the timing. The problem with tabs is that they are like cave drawings to language. Unless you actually experienced what was in the drawing, there was no way to understand it. Tabs are a crude way of drawing what you hear, while standard notation tells you how to play something you may not have ever heard before - and play it correctly.

    I've been playing this fun little riff for a while and what I've learned is that you hold the first note and then quickly play the next three, pause, play the next three, pause, play the next three, and then the last two.

    I guess when we are talking tab this might be the best way to explain it. Play with the cd and you'll get it.

    ok heres how it reallys goes:

    g: -----------------------------------------------11*-
    d: ---------11-9*--9h11p9s8*--8h9p8----------11-------
    a: -----11------------------------------9-------------
    e: --9------------------------------------------------

    h-hammer on
    p-pull off
    *-let ring

    hopefully this will help you a little bit, since i've added the hammer ons, pull offs, and slides. this is also the correct notation.
