I can play it but not at his speed. I haven't really practiced it enough to actually play it fast. It is one hell of a stretch though.

Wow that sounds great... Can anyone publish any tab forms of how to learn some of the actual playing, such as the first fast example (that sounds like "woooo! you found a treasure" from many RPG games...)

Here's a tab for those who don't have it.
e|------------------------------------9-10-14-17--|
B|----------------------------9-10-14-------------|
G|---------------------6-7-11---------------------|
D|--------------6-7-11----------------------------|
A|--------4-5-9-----------------------------------|
E|--4-5-9-----------------------------------------|

It's a nice stretch. You can pretty much play it over any major/minor chord progression.

Do you want to learn the scale or his specific lick in that video? Here's the scale:

I find this a hard stretch (to play fast)

|-------7h12p7h10p7----
|----8---------------8--
|-7--------------------7
|-----------------------
|-----------------------
|-----------------------

I can do it, but not fast. I have trouble with shit like that.
And in the next part of that song it has a hammer on from 5 to 10, which is harder.

I just made those stretches without warming up and I wouldn't say that I had long fingers at all.

My advice to anybody that finds this difficult is to perform finger exercises regularly - you'll soon be hitting that 9 no problem.

Frederik Thordendal does something very similar to this gothic octave in the solo to Gods Of Rapture. His fingerings are different though... here's how he does it:

Code:
|--------------------------------------9-13-15~-| |---------------------------------9-13----------| |-----------------------6-10/12-8---------------| |------------------6-10-------------------------| |---------4-8/10-6------------------------------| |-----4-8---------------------------------------| |-4-8-------------------------------------------|

I can make the stretch pretty easy as well.
Sidenote: is that one of those videos where he goes "now just play this fret and that scale and things, like this: *insane sweeping shred of death*. Now I know this is an instructional video, but you should be able to do this too as a warm-up: *reverse insane shred of sweeping death* Thanks for buying my video." ?
