Great topic Sam.

I'll add that for those of you that haven't actually done it - it's the first one that's the hardest and the most daunting. But after you accomplish your first honest transcription - the next one's easier (even if the solo/song is 'harder'). And it gets easier and easier the more you do.
Also, don't attempt your first one with something ragingly difficult. Pick a solo that you actually know at least in your head and that you can sing.

*Whenever I have trouble finding a melody on guitar I sing it and then transcribe from there.

**You will learn more about music and guitar playing by transcribing (on the guitar and on to paper - by hand) one, simple 12 bar blues solo than you will playing through 100's of somebody else's TABs of anything.

Great advice in there Ken! The singing to transcribe part was actually taught to me by Cosmin laugh.gif before this, I kind of somehow "knew" what pitch I'd get when I fret a specific string on a specific fret, so I'd just figure it out without singing it out tongue.gif But that made composing my own solos/melodies that were in my head tougher, so I started doing that for making my own solos and melodies smile.gif
