So me and my drummer decided to practice a track by Haken called "1985". The first time we were in our rehearsal room we hadn't prepared anything and it was all a bit of a mess trying to come up with something, so now we have decided to practice this song.

However, given that the song is largely keyboard driven, I decided to go ahead and make a backing track from a very nice tab of the song. I still had to fix some things of course to make it work, but in the end I think I got something decent down that can work as a backing track for me and the drummer to play along to. I probably still need to redo the vocals at some point, they were more difficult to get right than I thought they would be.

I also recorded the second guitar, as I can't play two guitars at once. See the tab for reference laugh.gif

I wanted to share the backing track with you guys. There's a count in which is in 7/4, as is the intro riff. Here's both a tab for 7 string guitar (the original is on 8 string) and the backing track:

Attached File  1985_for_7_string.gp5 ( 143.14K ) Number of downloads: 177


Attached File  1985_backing_no_guitar.mp3 ( 17.08MB ) Number of downloads: 21


I'm thinking I'll keep updating this thread with the progress of learning the whole song, hopefully in the end bringing a video from the rehearsal room with me and the drummer playing the song.

This is flat out impressive dude!!! You do a far more convincing GUITAR PRO than the RINGS OF SATURN guy! This is a challenging bit and I"m sure it will serve you both well as you get know it and each other through it. Like I said before though, don't stress over it! Just enjoy learning it and take your time. Keep up updated!

Todd

Thanks, Todd. All I did was take the tab, edit some things in it, export the midi and import it in Reaper, then choose some instruments for it etc. So the hard work is ahead now learning and playing the complete song smile.gif

Gotcha. Great way to do it imho! All the parts are there. Just replace tracks as you learn.
