    ashc,
    when i post the backing tonight, maybe we can have a traiding solo thing going on! you just pick every 2nd round, and we post it to let the others fill the gaps with guitar!
    Personally i wouldn't mind a strickly rammstein thread . hmm.....


    @mattblack850

    thanks as well..don't worry about this one then.. i'll maybe do a strickly country one soon. a slower one.

    C'mon Russ you've got the chops! Unless you want to wait for the naff synth dueling version - I recommend you do it now

    Well, I'm up for having a go as always.

    Can't promise anything on Sven's level though

    ...just waiting for the backing track.

    The Backing + Tab

    Finally here it is.
    a bit late due to internet/telephone probs at home - so i had to burn it on cd and upload it now at work - and hope not to get fired for that .


    There are a lot of scales and (odd) notes you could use!
    Since every chord is two bars long, you have a bit time to experiment.
    Try hearing the melody first in your head and then figure it out on the guitar, or just practice your pentatonic licks over it - whatever you do, i hope it will be usefull and makes you improve.

    I used: A minor, A harmonic minor, A hungarian minor, and a bit A minor pentatonic with a b5 (blues scale).

    I tabbed out the ending arpeggios for now, but will deliver a bit more soon (couldn't tab the whole thing out yesterday ).

    yeh, Thanks for the tab phantom, really great stuff, im learning the licks right now. didnt even realise there was 2 guitars playing the minor 3rd till i saw the tab, very cacophony! cant wait for you to tab out some more parts. BTW, is it hard to make power tabs, ive tried before in guitar pro and stuff, but i struggled making simple riffs, do you think it is because i dont know much about beats, rests and time signatures, some of this stuff looks impossible to transribe on a computerised program. For those people that transcibe YJM songs i praise them cause i believe its harder to tab it out on a pc than actually playing it. so help us out please.

    Hi Satch.

    I suggest learning a bit of notation format. It's very helpful.

    There may be some articles around here on it or you can certainly buy simple books showing you the value of notes and the like. Your minims, crotchets, quavers and so on.

    It's not too hard to get your head round and once you get into it, it becomes much easier to transcribe.

    A good skill to have.

    I'm getting into it more now and enjoying it.

    Mind you, there is a world of difference between me tabbing out a few of my basic runs that I have done on the strickly series and being able to tab out Malmsteen!

    do you think it is because i dont know much about beats, rests and time signatures
    Yep, i think so satch_master.
    hmm.. we should really have a rhythm article here on ibreathe.. that would help you out i guess.
    as for being complicated: if the rhythm is steady it is easier to transcribe and tab out.
    as you see in my tab, there is that bar of sixtuplets and the rest is straight 16th notes. that was tabbed in 5 minutes.
    for other parts it is a bit more of a hassle cause i have to figure out the right note length, where i played it exactly within the bar and so on...

    yeah the tab sounds a lot like cacophony - i realized that as well after i tabbed it out. in the recorded version i had the 2nd voice not that loud - i wanted to have just a slight harmony that is not overrunning everything else since it sounds pretty fat anyway.
    after listening to it again for a few times i think i should have thinned the leads out a bit.. cut more bass frequencies and so on, then the harmony part could have been stronger. oh well. .
