This solo is based in e natural minor (e-F#-G-a-B-C-D) and starts with some melodic bends and slippery slides. Bar 4 is best played with alternate picking; start with a downstroke, then try the same with an upstroke to see which is most3comfortable for you. in bars 5 and 6 use your second finger to slide up and down the scale on the second string while letting the first string drone throughout. next, position your second finger over the fret wire at the 7th fret and lift your finger off as you pick to produce the natural harmonics; then grab the whammy bar and give it a good shake! The solo finishes with some melodic unison bends before climaxing with one of Phil Collen’s trademark alternate-picked scale runs.
