Tighten up the whammy bar so it stays where you put it.
Play the notes, but don't use the pick...your right hand has to be banging the whammy bar ferociously.
(you might be able to pick the first note in the entire sequence...after that you have to learn to get those notes out loud and clear by using ONLY your left hand.) Eventually you'll get so use to hitting on the whammy bar that it starts to replace the pick. You can actually use the force of the whammy bar to help the notes ring out. You have to hit it hard, clean, usually with your palm or wrist, and keep doing it to get the desired effect.
Its tough until you get the hang of it. Its only a 4 note sequence. The trick is getting the feel.
MAKE SURE YOU'RE BAR IS TIGHT...MUCH EASIER.
