Nevermind the fact that the reach is crazy when he gets to 17__10, but I'm just wondering how I should be doing the picking. As far as up/down strokes. Whats the best way to tackle this?

Here are the tabs:

It starts on the 17 "section"


Ill admit i havent tried to play that song or solo, "but" (yea thats where the sh*t comes out) here are some clues.

Try starting that thing out with an upstroke (U) , then a pulloff (p)..

And when ever you have this type of this going:
-------10---14
--12----------
--D----D----h
^^Play all downstrokes and do the rest with hammers and pulls.


you can make a simple exercise of it:
-------10---14---10---------10---14---10
--12-------------------12----------------
--D----D----h-----p----D----D----h----p-

alternatively you kan play:
--D----D----U-----p----D----D----U----p-
but that can be trickier.
