    Default Dreams outro - who can?

    I'm interested to know who can play (up to speed) that mad stretch lick Ed plays very fast - where he's tapping the top E string and hammering from the 3rd to the 8th fret and if so can they can play it standing up, too?

    I dont play it like that. Also it's not a hard stretch. Get Up solo was harder for me to get used to.
    VH III is Ed's solo album. So everybody who keeps saying they wish he'd do one needs to stfu and listen to III. Then stfu again.

    Unless Iím wrong I think he just hammers 5-8 and taps 13, 15 and 12. Thatís the way Iíve always played it.

    It's 5 - 8 for the first 2 arps and then 3-8 for the last one. And it's a killer.

    I learned that one a few years ago. If you're right that it's 3-8 then it's similar to the big stretches in Humans Being, which are easy for me too.

    I think I'm about Ed's height and build. Part of what makes those parts easier is when the neck is set further into the body, thus bringing it closer to the center of your body. The Wolfgangs and Axis are very obviously built like this. It's easy to tell when you compare the back of the trem to the edge of the body on a guitar like a Strat vs. the EBMM or Wolfgang.
