It has stuff like polyrhythms where you have a triplet with septuplets and quintuplets inside it, making it very diffucult to transcribe by ear. 2 measures from it: http://ftp.catalog.com/mrm/zappa/images/blckpage.gif being able to figure this out without cheating is bragable :wink: PS: Fortheloveof...

You can screw up a little bit and most non-musician people won't notice, so don't worry about it being flawless

no, i dont' really like learning that stuff note for note. I'd rather improvise something that sounds close to it. But yes, if you slow it down it shouldn't be too difficult to learn.

hey, i learned it by ear. best thing i've ever done. If you don't have a need to learn a song quickly (i.e, i got tabs for a bunch of songs i had to learn to cover at a coffeehouse), do it by ear, it's much better for you, you actually LEARN something, and you *understand* it, because you've digeste...

Eff yourself?

Ok, the song "f--k yourself" is a 'leftover' from the flex-able sessions, right? Flex-able was recorded in 1984. However the one line says "f--k yourself with the world wide web, you can ride that sucker right from your bed"... the Internet didn't come into the public eye until the 90s, and certainl...

I think RGs are pretty crappy guitars, at least the lower end ones. I'd upgrade to a standard strat, or maybe a fat strat

Then you don't type properly.

The best non-guitar warm up is doing finger exercizes on the piano. I'm enrolled in Jordan Rudess' Online Conservatory and do the finger independence exersizes from that to warm up

It's really not that hard. Just do the picking on the fretboard by the arpeggio and then tap the next note up on the E string. i.e, playing an A minor arpeggio at the 12th fret, you'll end up at the 12th fret E, you could tap the 17th fret A, or hammer that on and tap the 20th fret C. Another option...

He probably didn't do 10 hours EVERYDAY, i'm sure he took some days off to socialize/whatnot, or at least cut it back

i've seen some malmsteen transcripttions with some 11:2 and 14:2 polyrhythms, which is not quite sextuplets and not quite 32nd notes... I don't think he intentionally plays polyrhtyms/odd groupings but just crams as many notes into a beat as possible
