I have to admit i'm not the best tabber by a long shot in fact I'm having trouble with this tiny lick on Spanish castle magic...(live malmsteen version)

here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQWyNr0pKvk#t=1m59s

specifically from 2.00 to 2.03
I'm not interested in the shreddy stuff really just the tasty wah parts

so if anyone has a clue as to what hes doing I'd very much appreciate some help!

tuning down a half step the basic notes sound like

e|-------------------9----------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------12--11---9----------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------]


the only problem is the c# (9th fret on the e string) sounds like its bent up to on the B string from the 12th fret to the 14th
this however makes it almost impossible to play the run down on the G string... :?

it doesnt sound like it should be so hard to work out and even watching the video doesnt really help much.
i'm probably the only person interested here but if anyone knows how to do it pray tell!

Guitaruss ,..mate ive heard you play ,and I was impressed ,but mate BE YOURSELF ,,who cares what Yngwie does to spanish castle magic ,,he didnt play it like Hendrix yeah ,though I do think Malmsteen is great at hendrix covers ,BUT he does them Malmsteens way .
To be a great player be yourself ,play spanish castle magic your way ,if you have a way yet and from what I have heard you do ,.you do have your own way and its good .
Show Malmsteen and others something from yourself that they may say ,..wow how did he do that .

PS ,,.do you think vai would play spanish castle magic like malmsteen ,well no he,d play it like steve vai ,and so and so on.

Thanks for the advice tommy and I appreciate what you're saying, however there are some licks I hear and I have to get them 'into my fingers'...I dont mean playing the lick VERBATIM necessarily, I just want to get the dynamics of it and master it, after that your musical vocabulary widens, or at least thats what I like to think!
