    Ok,

    I have tried to figure it out myself.
    I have also seen the tab in the F.U.C.K. book.

    It still doesn't sound right?

    Who plays Man on a Mission and how do you do it?

    thanks,
    kujo

    The tab book is wrong. EVH doesn't pick those three notes, he uses his index, middle, and ring fingers on his right hand to "hammer" on the strings. So that part of the tab is close. Then the last two times he plays that part he adds Hammer ons and pull off using his left hand on the low E from the 12th fret down to the 5th fret I think(I haven't played it in years and don't have a guitar in front of me at the moment)while still playing those three notes on the A, D, G, strings. Then a bend at the 3rd fret, low E and the drums come in. Michael Anthony plays EXACTLY the same parts(all you MA bashers can kiss my ass!)which give it a fatter sound and make it hard to hear exactly what is going on.

    What AFU said. Check the LRHRN video. If you know how to play "Midnight" by Satriani it is the same tecnique

    AFU's absolutely right. A lot of those tab books can screw you around. Watch videos, and watch Edward's hands, and practice, using spots on the neck differnt from what the tab books say. I also agree about MA. He's one of the most under rated bass players around. The man's got a humungous sound, and doesn't get enough credit for a lot of the stuff he does.

    Thanks for the help.
    I blew it a bit.
    I got the tapping part up at 13,14,16 frets.

    Its the verse passage I guess.

    It says low E 3,0,3,0,5,0,7,0
    a string 5,0,2,0
    d string 2

    that whole part jsut doesn't sound right. You are to use AH on the fretted notes on the low E...

    I don't know. I'll just keep plugging..

    thanks again,

    kujo
