    Default anyone know how to play this?

    Hey guys,

    check out this video from the US Festival. Look at the parts at 25 seconds to 30 seconds and especially from 45 seconds to 55 seconds.



    I have been trying to figure out how to do that little speed picking run Eddie runs up the neck for a long time and still not sure how exactly he plays it. Does anyone have this tabbed out or know exactly what he is playing? It almost sounds kinda like a part of spanish fly but he appears to be staying on the B string and hitting a note or 2 on the high E.

    anyone know how to play this little speed run up the neck? I have been wanting to play this for years but never could find the tab for it to see exactly what he is doing.

    thanks,

    Rob

    here is another example of a guy doing something just like it.

    He is playing spanish fly but the run up the neck is kinda how Eddie does it and not how its tabbed out in spanish fly.

    in the video he is doing it from 18 seconds to 25 seconds.



    gotta figure this out tonight after work.....

    I find that to be pretty much the hardest EVH lick/pattern to play and get sounding decent with all the little nuances...... good luck with it.

    I just need to get the exact tab for it so I know how to play it.

    I keep trying to slow it down to see what frets he is playing and what he is doing but I can never completely see.

    I don't know. It looks a bit more complicated than that. It seems like the run involves the same shape using both strings, not alternating between them.

    I love this thread topic...I've always wanted to figure that out!
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    me too, I have been playing guitar for 16 years and never spent the time to figure this run out.

    as far as what OOKRAMOO posted, I just played it that way all the way up the neck to the 12th fret real fast and then finished like Ed does with spanish fly and I gotta tell you, it sounds about right. I see what you mean it almost looks like Ed is staying on the B string and hitting a few notes on the E too but the run sounds right the way ookra posted.

    nuno probably the best I have seen at that technique, no clue how they pick so freakin fast across multiple strings.
    my left hand is very fast, but my picking never was close to that. I practice it alot lately, but nothin close.
    I SURVIVED TEXAS LINKERS WEEKEND I, II, III, IV and VI and VII.barely made it to VIII time to slow down
    I musta had a broken middle finger for V

    I fucked with it tonight, I can't do it fast enough, it sounds like shit. Reason number 4,997,000 why I'm not Ed. But that's definitely how you play it. My fret hand is fine, it's the picking hand.

    People don't realise quite what an incredible right hand techniqhe Ed has, getting the timing spot on with your picking is 95% of a lot of it. your fret hand can be as accurate as anything but if you can't phrase your picking right it's never gonna sound correct. which is why i rarely play anything by Ed the way he plays it...especially since i started to get arthritis in my right thumb and wrist.

    me too. I was doing it last night but once I get to the 8th fret I am not sure exactly what he is fretting anymore.

    ookramoo posted this is how you play it and Brett agrees,


    457 568 what is the rest of it to the 12th fret?
    457 568


    anyone know.
