The "solos theme" part is played using 2-string arpeggios. If I remember correctly, the solo starts on 12th fret B-string, goes 10th fret high E-string and the 12th fret on the same string, then repeating the order a couple of times and moving on.
You would then play the note on the B-string with a down picking motion, the 10th fret on the E-string with a downwards pick again, and then the 12th on the E-string with an upstroke followed by a pull-off to the 10th fret.

Hope this helps, if not, ask ....smile.gif

Long time since I played it tongue.gif

I understand, but when I make the pull off of the 14th fret to the 10th fret, I haven't sound whith a distortion so I don't hear the 4th note of the theme.
( sorry for my english, I hope you will understand )

Sorry, I think I make a bad pull off so I will work, thanks.

Yeah, I understand..smile.gif Just work on pull-off and hammer-ons in that solo, you don't have to play it EXACTLY as the record. You can make it sound nice by playing it with some hammer-ons and pull-ofs combined. smile.gif

Good luck!
