Hey Ace, here is a tutorial for Run To The Hills. DO NOT STRESS OVER THE FAST NOTES. Focus on just moving through the notes as they change, in quarter notes. Even the eighth notes, when there are two per beat, you can simplify to just one. Ignore any quick open string notes. The intro you can play as is from the tutorial, but I made a video for your first verse and chorus to get you started and give you an impression of how to simplify.



Hey Malina, here’s a simpler version of the ending of the Four Horsemen solo we talked about. Note that we could also just cut that part of the solo out altogether – it’s exactly the halfway mark so musically it would feel pretty ok to just cut it. On the recording, it would be skipping from 4:09 to 4:30 about. Just in case you feel like you have too much solo material to learn already.
