Idk if this will help anybody or not, but making myself learn this riff with this fingering has really helped me with this song. It also taught me that I can force myself to make my hand remember positions like this, and opened a door for me to see the light. It will be key when I start learning scales, but will help with many songs, because it is the easier way when you train your hand .
Maybe you already know this and I am just late to the game, but n the hopes this helps anybody, here it is.
Ok, so you start on the A string playing
After fretting on 10 you shift your hand to this position with your ring finger over 7 as you pluck the last open A in that sequence
Here you are in position for the next sequence in bold
0-0-10-0-10-12-0-10-0 -7- 0-8-8-7-5-7
Back to open with hand staying in position in bold
Now the key. After plucking that last open A, fret 5-7 and 8 for the next two notes on the 8 in bold
0-0-10-0-10-12-0-10-0 -7- 0**-8-8-**7-5-7
Next lift the pinky for the next 7 in bold
Next life the ring finger for the 5 in bold
Last, re fret 7 in bold with the ring finger
0-0-10-0-10-12-0-10-0-7-0-8-8-7-5**-7-** open E
If it helps GREAT
It was awkward for me at first.
First thing I had to do was practice over and over to place my ring finger over 7 and fret with it. The rest, you just have to work thru it 100’s of times til it sticks. After a while, you won’t even need to think about it.
I make no claims to inventing this, there may be other tutorials showing this. Idk, but for me I just thought, “hey, this might be a good idea, and it worked for me. Maybe, if you don’t already do this, consider trying it and see if it works as good for you as it did for me.
Also, if you have any alternatives that work for this, or any other part of this, or any song, would love to hear about, see them
