    Hello,
    I'm trying to play this Song since two weeks.
    I had no Problems but there ist one thing I cant play. Its the last variation of the main Riff, it goes like this:
    PHP:
    G||--------2-4-7-10-7----10-9-7-5--|-----9-0-5-9-0-5-9-0-5-9-5-5-4--||
    D||--0--0--------------0-----------|--------------------------------||
    A||--------------------------------|--5-----------------------------||
    E||--------------------------------|--------------------------------||
    it's very fast(132bpm).
    Does someone know how to play it easer, or has someone another version of this part? It's just too fast, and I can't go so fast like this from the 5th to the 9th fret.

    so long...
    Roger

    P.S. I'm sorry about my bad english :(
     
  2. Intead of playing the note at the ninth fret on the G string, you could hit the same note on the fourth fret on the D string...that way you'd only have to move one fret rather than four....:)
     
  3. By the way....this might get more responses if it were in the Tablature Forum.
     
  4. Or, you could play up at the 9th fret and hit the 10th fret on the D string. That would be easier.

    Thanks!
    This works nice.
    It's still fast. But now I can tab this part.
     
  6. That's what I meant to say...I guess my brain hadn't fully engaged. My previous answer wouldn't even work.

    I would say that is a mid-range tempo - fast would be about 160 and very fast would have to be around 190. I've heard Jazz musicians play effortlessly, at tempos above 220!! :eek:

    for me it's fast ;)
    220bpm? I don't think that this sounds good.
