How would this be fingered if you were playing it? HOpfully my tab is read able
High E---------10-12-13-16-17-19-20- 22-24-24-24-29-
[16th notes---------------][8th notes--------] tempo 146 bpm

its the last line to the crossroads suite. I've got a bit more to go and I'm done with the Niccolo Paganini Caprice No. 24 in A minor which is the last part of the cross roads suite. I don't know what else to include as far as information, oh the 29 is fretted against the neck pick up so don't freak

thanks Matt

The video shows a closeup of Steve Vai playing this part when he tries to imitate the Karate Kid.

I play the whole ascending run in two string patterns, so I would move up the [--10-12-13--] to the B string, and use fingers 1-3-4.

For the [16-17-19-20-] I use fingers 1-1-3-4, meaning that I would use my index finger for both the 16 and 17.

My guitars don't have 24 frets so I always played the 22 with my ring finger and bent up to the 24th fret.
