    Default Ascending Spanish Fly Run

    FF to the part of the ascending run where Ed alternates between the B and E string. Does he pick every note or just the first of each triplet and hammer on the 2nd and 3rd notes? I've always hammered the 2nd and 3rd notes on but when I see him play this live it looks and sounds as if he is picking each note.

    I've always picked each note. I think playing it that way gives the run more of a flamenco vibe when you're using a nylon string. And on an electric I pick just about everything anyway.

    The triplets on the B string are legato, being only the first note is picked, and second & third hammered. The E String triplets are all flat picked.
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!
