    Need Help with "You Really Got Me" ending

    Next Sunday, Dec. 2nd, I'm playing in a recital at Austin Guitar School where I take lessons. I'm playing "You Really Got Me." I've been working hard on trying to get the solo down. My teacher and I didn't have time to work out the ending.

    I can't speed pick, but can tap/hammer on pretty good, does anybody have any ideas on how to do a hammer on ending? Got tab???

    Thanks in advance,
    Dan

    Fuck Tabs. Just take parts of the solo that you know and incorporate that into the ending. Yeah, I know the song actually ends in E, but just make it end in A and do the same stuff from the solo, just mix it around. Nobody will know the difference.
    We train dogs for cattle and sheep herding. They're very different. Sheep are a lot like supermodels - they bunch together, they rattle very easily. Cattle are like drunks at a hockey game - two will want to fight: "Who are you and what's with your badge?"

    Two of them will be like: "Leave them alone, let's go see the game." Another one is lost: "Where'd you guys go?" The dog has to deal with all of that. You work them off a whistle. It's the original video game.

    It's just a pentatonic E-run basically from the 12th fret. There is no speed picking on the end though.

    If it's the lick I'm thinking of, then to play it note-perfect at album-speed is going to take you too long to master, not to sound like a jerk or anything.

    He does some cross-picking, like Brett said at the 12th fret, and then flows down into the lower/middle strings with some hammer-on licks with his first, middle, and pinky fingers, and then slides his first finger, in descending fashion, through a few notes on the "A" string before coming to a halt on the "E" power chord.

    .....unless I'm remembering that lick from a different song!
