Those are the first two parts to "Hey Mike'? Thank you!!! How were you able to transcribe them? Do you have a machine that slows it down? Anyway, there's no rush, I'm just so glad that somebody has the tabs to this solo! If you can eventually tab the whole thing, even if it takes weeks, that would be incredible!
I notice a lot of three note per string runs in the first part where MAB plays 3 notes that are all 3 frets apart, out of the diminished scale. Interestingly, Zakk Wylde has used this same lick in his onstage solo segment of his shows. I saw it one month back when he used to write a column for a guitar magazine, probably Guitar World.
One question. Is the first part all picked, or does he just pick the first of every three note pattern and then hammer on the next two notes? Thanks!!
BTW, are the two sections of Hey Mike that you posted meant to be played back to back or are they just two random excerpts of the solo? I think you meant those two parts combined to be the entire first section of "Hey Mike" but I just wanted to be sure. Did you transcribe that yourself?
blackjack > Yes they are meant to be played back to back, I don't have the song on my pc right now but I think these are the first 20 seconds or so. I transcribed them using the software "Transcribe" (30 days trial).
Yeah Mike always seem to play those amazing fast diminished runs in his solos lol, kinda like Shawn Lane. I could try to tab the whole "Hey Mike" solo, it will take a while though.
Edit: like I said I don't have the song on my pc right now but knowing Mike, I think the whole solo (excluding the arpeggios) is alternate picked, that's crazy lol
Thank you very much for posting the arpeggio section! I really appreciate it.
I know it could take a long time to transcribe the whole solo but so far you have tabbed up to the 21 second mark. The entire solo is 53 seconds, and like I said I know it could take a while but if you could even tab up to the 35 second mark, just 14 more seconds of it that would be really cool. The section from 21 seconds through 35 seconds is my favorite part of the solo.
Damn, it says that the software I need to open any of it with my computer ( a Mac) costs $30 to buy!!! I guess I'll just have to wait until you have some time to convert it into the format you posted the first couple parts. I hope you get the chance to, but if you don't, thanks for the parts you did post here on the forum!!!!
Hi jason, I would greatly appreciate it if you would tab a specific bit from MAB's awesome rendition of burn, specifically, the phrase (if thats what you would call it, im still reading up on theory) from 4:05-4:15. It sounds really cool. Thanks in advance!
