Hi everyone! I'm new here. (Thanks again, Kris :-) ).

I've been trying to figure out how to do massive pulloff runs down one string, i.e. in bars 114 to 115 in this solo:


(Played at 208bpm)

However, I'm not sure how I should shift my hand or place my fingers as the pulloff run moves towards the head of the guitar. (A solo like this would employ the use of pulloffs, wouldn't it?) Should I shift my whole hand back after each triplet or use a combination of pinky / ring finger pulloffs while sliding my index finger back?

The Guitar Pro 4 file is here too: http://www.tjfweb.com/temp/mc/thank_you_fo...r_the_venom.gp4

Thanks :-)

Hello TJF biggrin.gif - and wellcome to the Masterclass forum.

Position shifts like this is probably one of the hardest things to execute evenly. Like you said, you have to change postion after each group of triplets.

The way I would tackle practcing this, would be to play each group of triplets twice before shifting position. The whole idea is to not practice something that's extermely hard directly - but inastead let it come to you..

One more question about this:

At high speeds, should I fret with my index finger (in other words, the last note of the triplet) immediately after shifting to the next position or should I only fret just before I pulloff with my middle or ring finger?

I can do the pulloffs of each triplet very well when playing them individually; it's just the very fast shift that's slowing me down.

Not sure I understand you fully, but make sure you are not fretting twice in a row with the index finger (this will never allow for speed). /K
