Next Darrin explains how to perform the lick as follows; 15th fret of the first string with 4th finger and do a pull-off to the 12th fret with first finger to the 15th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger and then back to the 12th fret of the first string and then back to the 15th fret of the 2nd string to the 12th fret with first finger.
