Can anyone play the main solo bit out of 'Wonderboy' by Tenacious D. It's an absolute bastard and it's pissin me off tryin to get it up to speed. It only takes a few seconds but sounds amazin. Can you post tips on how to play it eg. finger runs, fingers for strings etc.

just start playing slow, build up memory in your fingers for it, than slowly bring it up to speed, there's not some magic answer, practise

I agree, just start really slow and build up speed. When I was trying to learn Call of Ktulu, I never thought I'd get the intro down, but I eventually did just by going slowly up a metronome...

Play it on Windows Media Player and slow it down to as slow as possible. Then, after you have COMPLETEY mastered at a certain speed, move up a bit. Believe me this has worked for me countless times. Just don't try to progress to quickly.

Audacity also has an excellent feature for slowing down songs without changing the pitch.

Just play a D minor pentatonic improv. But if you wanna play the solo exact the way they do just learn it and if your a beginner just build up the speed slowly. It's not a terribly hard solo.

slow it down and learn it perfectly, then gradually speed it up as everyone has said.

Not really worthy of a thread, once again, just practiceC'mon, it's a decent question... the replies here have helped the guy.

KingJay: It's not an issue of how long someone's been playing; what if they've been doing rhythm for those 6 months? What if they only played once a week for the first 4 months? I know a lot of people who are/were like that... not everyone starts off listening to Vai, Meola, etc.

Threadstarter: Just as a side note, to help you out with developing your speed for soloing, you might want to check out http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=308621. There are some good exercises in there that will help you to pick up other solos easier if you work on them :).
