In Eric V's article about Paul GIlbert he included a lick from 2 Become 1. i was having trouble with the fingerings. its that really fast legato lick

G-12 14 17 17 14 12
sorry about the crudness. but i was wondering on the high 12th fret E should i bar the 12th on the G and E?? or should it be induvidual fingerings? i have just been tapping that lick which seems 2 work but i wanna do it the real way. thanks

Hey there...

Hmmm... good question. I usually play this by moving my first finger from the G- to the high E-string and back, not barring.
This is kinda easy for me, I guess because I have been messing with stretch pentatonic-stuff a lot... that stuff involves a lot of string skipping while playing legato.
Anyway, thatīs the way Iīd play it. I think Thorsten would use a different fingering for the lick. I tabbed it from memory, and Paul might play it a bit differently... but itīs a cool lick anyway, and worth bringing up to speed

because E-string will ring thro the lick - and this is no good
you'll have to mute it and it no so easy...

sorry for bad English
