For some advice on nailing the lick, here's Paul Riario:
"I begin bar 1 with three sets of 16th-note triplets and a staccato eighth note. The eighth note is always played on the high E string, so string-skips from the B or G strings are required.
"To skip strings cleanly, lightly mute them with your fretting hand near the bridge, as you would when palm muting. This will help prevent idle strings from being sounded as you move the pick from one string to another."
The tempo is 94 beats per minute, 68 for slow practice.
