That's also a nice song ohmy.gif Probably a bit more difficult, but a challenge is always good.

Could you guys also give some tips on how to learn songs by ear ohmy.gif
My own idea of it would be to figure it out note for note tongue.gif



I'm going to bed now, see you tommorrow smile.gif

Mark.

Best tip I could give you is to first figure out the scale/s used in the song, and than start working phrase by phrase, lick by lick, note by note (I hope I made sense). that's the way I do it, and so far it's working great smile.gif

Oh and as a song suggestion, try this one, it's from Satch's new album:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oZCIulz3e8

I havn't tried myself yet, but it sounds like it's in the same scale the entire song, and mostly pentatonic so shouldn't be too hard, good luck man!

I agree with Juan. I sit watching television and play along with theme tunes and advert backing music. Great for your ears. I tabbed out X Files on guitar biggrin.gif
