The tapping phrase

First you have a slide up on the sixth string to the note A where you start playing an ascending A romanian minor by six notes per string (3 notes by left hand and 3 notes by right) in 3 octaves by 32's. Then you will continue playing using legato, until you can switch to your pick, as rapidly as you can. If you would use a pick that can be attached to your thumb, then you will be able to switch to picking faster.

 

The picking phrase

The first part of this segment is a phrase also in A romanian minor scale, using alternate picking, following a sweeping and sliding lick in D# diminished.
