release
it while pulling of to the next note.

Well about that scale running after the small D arrpeg im not sure at all, 
its
something similar, if you figure it out let me know.

in this part petrucci shows some of his good hammering technique, this is a 
fast
run wih similar technique as in metropolis 1, only this one is shorter and 
faster

this part is mostly fast unhuman picking, i divided it to sections so pay 
attention.
