Foggy Mountain Breakdown - Variation III

For this variation on good ol' Foggy Mountain we journey to the upper reaches of the fretboard.  Most of the playing is out of the G and E minor chord voicings up the neck with a few distractions thrown in (such as the chromatically descending fourths in measures 3-4).

The end of this variation features a barrage of triplet pulloffs.  All of the pulloffs descent from 3rd fret to 2nd fret to the open string.  If you have yet to encounter these types of pulls before I suggest spending some time with the metronome working on only one string and when you feel comfortable try it with string switching.

Without further adieu, here is the video of the variation played slow...
