I learned that solo when it first came out in 2005 by ear and have since revised the fingerings after I saw a video of syn playing it. I am 100% sure it’s accurate at this point. 1 person likes this January 8, 2019 at 2:47 pm #182948 Christopher LonskiParticipant Here it is in powertab format if you cave on not doing it by ear. I only changed the main solo part, this is otherwise transcribed by some other dude on ultimate guitar. Everything seems pretty accurate. The only part that isnt 100% is the last lick of the first solo before the harmony in the middle because Syn is just playing that old Kirk Hammett “Snake lick” which is just random notes going down the high E. If you DO want to finish it by ear, and I highly recommend that you do to develop it more, I recommend downloading “Transcribe!” to slow it down. It also has other options like EQ settings to remove the low end so you can hear the solo better, or a “karaoke” setting to remove the lead vocals and solo so you can hear the rhythm parts better. That feature is great when its difficult to hear a rhythm part buried in the mix. You often hear parts that you never knew were there (“betrayed” is a good example of this) MIA powertab- https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kBRpOPN7mXxjK0AHYIYK3xAWPrPTUZPB 1 person likes this January 9, 2019 at 7:54 am #182970 Jaylen OwensParticipant Thanks for all the help guys i try to learn songs by ear first and if i cant figure it out i watch videos then tabs im all over the place lol and the M.I.A solo is probably the hardest A7x solo in my opinion and thanks for the help again. 1 person likes this Author Posts Viewing 6 posts - 1 through 6 (of 6 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
