I start by sliding up this note on the G string on the 3rd fret up to the 4th fret like that. And then I play the B string and the E string open, bend back to the B string open and then I slide up these notes. This is on the 5th fret on the B string. Then open E string again. And then on the 3rd fret on the B string, pull off. Then on the 3rd fret on the G string, back to the 2nd fret, open, pull off and then on the 2nd fret on the D string and then ending the whole phrase on the open low E string.
Then I use my ring finger to barre these two strings. The B string and the high E string on the 3rd fret and I play up strokes like this and then play the phrase again. Then I go to A7, the phrase before is just the same. We are just ending it on the open A string instead of the open E and then E7 like this then D7#9 so you are ending on the B note. So its trick is to of course play that fast. You have to play it slowly at first and get the timing right and the fingers following these notes in a comfortable way. I use these two fingers mostly. Some people prefer to use these two fingers. It is your preference. So now try to play this in a low tempo with a drum track. Here is a simple drum track at 75 bpm.
