I’m dipping my toe in again . I barely have any experience ,except for one relatively easy solo that I seemed to luck out on and following a few vocal melodies (I really enjoy doing that actually,should do it more).
anyway Im a big Slash fan and some guy on YouTube did a great improvisation piece that I liked so this afternoon I spent 30 minutes installing transcribe , downloading the video off YouTube and actually transcribing the beginning few notes .
im quite buoyed by my initial success ,although to be fair it’s a few slow expressive bits at the beginning. The challenge will come when it gets into those endless Fast cascading picked/legato type runs . I’m working on some similar type stuff in paradise city / November rain outro solo’s so hopefully
the experience of working on these and the transcribing will consolidate eventually into some sort of proficiency .
I figure if I do a bit each day as an extra to my regular practice I might be able to improve my ear , My ability to construct my own solos, to improvise and to transcribe more stuff in that style Also I’m thinking when I do use tab books for learning specific stuff it should improve that too.
