I'm not saying it's impossible, just difficult to do due to it's speed. The key (as with any song) is taking it down to a speed you can play it perfectly at and slowly raising the speed until it's the same as the song you're trying to play.

I don't think his hardest lick would've been in Eugene's trick bag. I think it would probably be in a live solo that he performed. I tend to see some amazing solos by him in concert.

I think this is because he has found his very own unique way of using the whammy bar. Nobody uses it quite like Steve :)

Ballerina 12/24 is really hard to get that clean. Quite irritating actually :lol:

My pick would be the one handed run at the end of Building the Church from the G3 in Tokyo. :shock:

I think the chromatic lick in Passion & Warfare is quite tricky. It's a real finger-twister of a lick!
