Should I just admit defeat and accept the fact that I'm never gonna nail Geddy Lees masterpiece?

Give it another 2,000 years and you'll be right next to Geddy.

I play so poorly that I don't even dare try it! So good on you Marko for giving it a go. I'll bet you are learning even if not able to play it as you would like.

Thanks Danny but I don't think a vid would help, I know what's required and where the notes are but my fingers just don't wanna know. The triplets are so fast that the middle note is hard to nail, wether I try picking it, hammer attacking it or pulling off, the crazy thing is, in my band we do ‘Orpheus’ by Ash that has a crazy fast four 32nd note run which I can play. Sid, we should just stick to U2 covers lol

Aye! U2's With or Without You is something I can manage! I even tabbed it! Mum was very proud!

There's a youtuber “tjh3113” who does some of the best, if not THE best, Geddy Lee covers around. He does a tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWttEbE2KTU

But ya, those triplets are hard to nail

Never accept defeat Marko. If you do that, the song wins. I'm trying to do the same song, it's tough I will admit, but it can be done. I do Dream Theater on the side, and we all know how much of a monster John Myung is.
