It's complicated to explain, but a fairly easy thing to do, assuming I'm right on what he's doing. I'm pretty sure he's playing a note with his left hand, bending the string, tapping another note with his right hand, then doing a pull-off with his right hand to the original note on his left hand, releasing the bend, and doing another pull-off with his left hand to another note. Like I said, it's hard to explain, but hopefully you understood. smile.gif

If you're talking about that one high note bend at 1:30 - 1:31, he's bending the G note at the 20th fret on the B string, two whole steps up to a B note. Keep in mind that he is tuned down a half step which, of course, flattens all the above notes.
