Hey guys, how are you all doing ?

Concerning the Paul Gilbert presentation on Guitar Wars, playing To Be With You:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ligr9aMFcQ

I need to learn this song, but I'm having some trouble with the tapped arpeggios. So I wanted to know if any of you can help me out with the first three he uses from 1:09 to 1:15 (the second set of three I have figured out already).

I know more or less where he starts and where he ends each of them, but I just can't find out what's in the middle..


Thanks in advance for any reply :headbang

i don't have a guitar nearby but it just sounds like major arpeggios- and they're the same inversion so- it just sounds like the same pattern up on higher and higher notes without any changes to the structure or chords

and the last chord has a rhythmic variation and stays on it twice as long (maybe 3x as long)

so...just move the same notes up

Yeah, I'm almost getting it, but I can't figure out the exact notes he's playing. I can just tell the first 3 notes and the last 3 ones, the middle notes I just can't discover.

I know the first one is a D (major as you said) arpeggio and it starts at the D string, 12 fret, then a F# (4th fret), then an A (7th fret).
And it ends with the same notes (on the B string), but in the first inversion: 3rd fret, 7th fret and 10th fret.

If you can try to figure this out the next time when you can pick up the guitar, I would greatly appreciate it.
