About the tabs:
- This is a TAB set. No videos are included.
- Currently about 78 tabs I have written. You only download ONE SMALL ZIP file that expands to 78 pdf files.
- That comes out to about 25 cents per tab !!!
- Tabs are mostly full songs but some just the solos. The title of the tab file will say 'solo' if it only covers the main solo.
- I have personally created all of my tab to show how I technically play the licks.
- An amazing number of notes are not picked. These are the usual hammer-ons (h), pull-offs (p), bends (b), slide (/).
- If there is not an 'h' 'p' 'b' '/' before the note, that means I actually pick the note.
- This detail will help you start to develop the habits that make it easier to play faster.
- You not only learn awesome solos, but develop your technique as a guitar player.
- This is NOTstandard musical notation.
- NOTE: This is a TAB set. It does NOT include videos.

About Playing Guitar Solos
I've put together a library of lessons and slow-motion videos to help you uncover just how these solos were played, and the techniques used to play them.
How do I figure out these Guitar Solos?
Now, after a lot of experience, just by listening I can usually tell which strings they're on, and recognize common patterns they are playing, but I by no means have perfect pitch. So I still have to verify the key and get the fine details by sitting down and matching each note to what I hear, to make sure I'm in the right place on the neck. I recognize 'open' strings by ear, and open chords vs bar chords, so many times I can logically deduce what key a song is in just by listening.
But in the end, to get the fine details, you want to stop the music at each note and analyze what you are hearing. It's a lot easier these days as there are tools to slow down the recording, but you still have to get in tune as close as you can and then start matching up the notes.
And I never play through an amp or any electronics to try to get the same sound before figuring out the music. That would make it complete chaos to me and much more difficult. If you learn to really listen to the 'music', to the 'notes' behind the electronics and the effects, you will more easily find them on your guitar. So with my electric unplugged and the volume very low, I just match up the notes.
It also helps immensely to get 'exactly' in tune. So when you get your bearings on what notes they are playing, find a long sustaining one, and tune to that note. Then do the same on other notes on other strings, to compensate for when you tune the whole guitar and it's not just right. Keep re-tuning to notes and playing along until it sounds exact. From there it's a lot easier to figure out all the other licks.
That's it really. Nothing magic, just basically a lot of work. But it also leads to a lot of learning.
