Syn’s Live Vistalegre solo
This is the one and I have no idea what he’s playing when he’s going up the fretboard: I can get the slower notes when I slow it down but other than that.. Whooooooooooooosh?

it sounds like his usual sweeps and the triplets around them on the outside strings. I just dont know sweeps well enough to tell you which ones they are honestly. Sweeping is a big weakness of mine, mainly because I didn’t know the theory behind it and well, quite honestly never had the patience to sit down and do it lol

It sounds like a lot of sweeps. Also some m9 arpeggios. I think he does use some em arpeggios too. Maybe try slowing it down jn youtube so you can figure out the notes by ear?

Tried slowing it down on sony vegas even more than 50% and It’s really muddy. Sounds like he’s also palmmuting a bit or something so it’s difficult
