        Re: Which Guitar Instrumentals can you play?

        Dee (I love to play it on my classical guitar)

        parts of Mood For A Day by Steve Howe (I've still some problems on fast parts)

        The Call Of Ktulu (everything except the solo, I haven't tried it yet)

        Is There Anybody Out There ? (One of the first things I learned on guitar)

        By Black Sabbath:

        Fluff
        Embryo
        Orchid (I've still some troubles, but I should give another try because I've improved much since the last time I tried it)

        I'd love to play Scarlet Pimpernel. It's strange but I've always problems with acoustic parts by Iommi (except She's Gone which is very simple).

          I can get the intro in Orchid and the first three finger picking patterns but I mess up after that

          Hi Psycho Man..
          Try and break Orchid down into "Small Bits", Its played around 3 Major chords C, F, and G (a semitone down from the
          "Master of..."recording) there is a nice 4 chord to one bar
          part in the middle that makes it the tune it is ....
          I'll try and explain it below;

          here's the first chord;

          String 4 fret 7; String 3 fret 9; String 1 fret 8

          next one

          String 4 fret 5; String 3 fret 4; String 1 fret 7

          next one

          String 4 fret 3; string 3 fret 5; string 1 fret5

          end up on

          string 5 fret 3; string 2 fret 1; string 1 fret 0
          (C major without the 'e' note)

          Play each chord as an arpeggio, so pick string 4 fret 7,
          then string 3 fret 9, then string 1 fret 8 (but hold each three notes as a chord).
          Then move onto the next chord, then the next, then the last chord.
          Give each chord a count of " 1 & a" so "1 & a, 2 & a, 3 & a,
          4 & a ".
          Practice slowly at first then gradually speed up, and with a bit of luck and practice you should have that "Pretty middle part of Orchid" in the can...hope this helps! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

          Remember Tony's guitar was closely "Miked up" and "Double tracked" at least maybe "Quadruple tracked" in the studio and a Bass was used as harmony and root note playing..

            And thatís for real"

              Hi Psycho Man, The bit that I put up (In key of C major)
              is found in the middle of the 3rd block of Tab down, on the
              Iommi Tab page, the order that you play the notes, on this one is slightly different and the Iommi Tab is in the key of D, where as my version is in the key of C, but the arpeggio chord changes have the same effect, i.e. same sound different key.
              The reason why I mentioned the "double-tracking", is that some people say to me "oh, why can't I get the same fat tone as on the album?" it's only 1 guitar, but if you "D-T"
              the sound is warmer and fatter, I've only heard Tony do this song on an electric live, where as on the original
              recording he uses a Nylon strung "Spanish" guitar, normally used by "Classical" guitarists.
              Anyway, what part can't you play yet?........

                the third line in the tab I put up, with the changes in the middle
                "I want to tell you, yeah
                How Good It Feels
                Sleeping here with you tonight

                  Hi Psycho Man,
                  This part you can't get at the moment is, as
                  I said before the "4 chords in a Bar" part.

                  Each chord is made up of 3 notes, hold those 3 notes like any other chord, here we go.......

                  String: 4 1 3
                  Fret: 9 10 11
                  Finger: Index middle ring Chord one

                  now you are holding the chord, pick the notes in this order
                  string 4 then string 1 then string 3 , with this rhythm

                  1 & a ("1" is the first note, "&" is the second note "a" is
                  the third note)

                  then play chord two (like you've played chord one)

                  string: 4 1 3
                  fret: 7 9 6
                  finger: middle little index


                  then play chord three (as before)

                  string: 4 1 3
                  fret: 5 7 7
                  finger: index little ring


                  then play chord four (same rhythm, same order of strings )

                  string: 4 2 3
                  fret: 0 7 7
                  finger: / little ring

                  Practice slowly at first, getting to know the chord shapes, then you can speed up the chord changes..........hope this helps....... :sorry the computer puts things in paragraphs
                  but I think you can see what I'm showing....

                    How Good It Feels
                    Sleeping here with you tonight
                    And thatís for real"

                          My band plays "The Scarlet Pimpernel" at many of our shows. Many people think its our own composition between our "Electric Funeral" cover and our original work "Behind the Glass"
