Me and my friend are trying to cover the infamous Halloween theme, but we have no idea where to start, we have the basic notes, but we're also trying to put in a good solo in there, ANY help would be greatly appreciated wink.gif

There are several tabs for it @ UG.


--------------------
Guitars - Schecter C1-FR Hellraiser Black Cherry
Ibanez Iceman w/ DiMarzio Super Distortion in the Bridge and DiMarzio Humbucker from Hell in the Neck
Xaviere XV-700 Cherry Sunburst (Les Paul copy)
Lyon Def Leppard Special Union Jack (to go under construction soon - 1st thing to be removed will be the Def Lep logo on the headstock and then off to change the pickups etc. - plays pretty well for a Target special)
Washburn KC-40 (in pieces and about to be re-painted)
Yamaha Classical Acoustic

Bass - Signed Gene Simmons Punisher Tobacco Sunburst #345 - Collector purposes only

Amp - Roland Cube 60, Roland MicroCube

Effects - Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah

I just started messing with it after reading your post. Sounds like the main riff is A#-G#-G#-A#-G#-G#-A#-B. I haven't looked at any tabs, I'm just going on sound, so I could be off. But the intervals at least I think are correct.

Anyway, if you tune your guitar to drop-D, crank up the distortion, you could could use power chords in place of the single-note riff, using the G# as a pedal tone (mute with your picking hand, too) and make this sound really metal-style. Once you get the main riff sounding good like that, record it (Audactity or whatever), and you could then play with lead lines over that. This appears to be the key of G#-minor, so work with that scale and try to come up with something cool.
