This is an E pentatonic scale. Hit the open E string as your bass note, then hit the A on the 7th fret, then E open again, then 5th fret... Listen. I did this kind of slow then more regular speed. Hope it helps :thumb:

Disclaimer Edit: Actually, it easier to play in E pentatonic as I did not look at the exact tab to know any better :D

take it slow and learn each phrase bit by bit and practice them and then slowly piece it together

If you meant all those "v"s in the tab, that means big time Angus style vibrato.
Yea I know what everything stands for but I just can't play it. I downloaded something called transcribe to slow it down so I can hear every little bit better.

I remember when Back In Black came out when I was in High School. I used to play the whole first side of that album after school.

Slowing down tracks works for some people - I never go that route.

Try repeating sections of the solo with your CD player - and listen as closley as you can to whats going on. Then simply try and reproduce it on your axe.

My old guitar teacher was a big believer in also singing the part - then playing it on your guitar. That helps sometimes too. .

If that's the case, then only one thing will help you.........practice, practice, practice. Do it over and over and over, so many times that you can hum the solo, and you can close your eyes and visualize your fingers on the frets. Eventually it will come.
