I'm trying man,....
still no luck,..
been to like 6 of the biggest tab sites on the net so far,...
I'm gonna call my friend who talked to Ed personally once,..
he runs my favorite music shop. he will probably have something for me to give to you at some point if the tab DOES exist. you want the REAL DEAL no transcribed/interpereted stuff



(I have never read any tab ever,..but I hear from a lot of people it works, and to try to find original data from the artist not an interpreter, cuz sometimes they are off)

Use your ears! Tab is an essential crutch for beginners, but it has to be cast aside eventually if progress is to continue. If you really want to grow as a player, you need to give yourself a good education in theory and learn how to transcribe by ear.

It may seem an intimidating task, but just take it one note at a time. When listening to the most hellishly fast/intimidating/depressing shred licks, just reach out with your ears and grab one single note. It doesn't matter which one. Rewind, find a second note. Repeat, and before you know it things will come into focus. Progress will come more quickly than you might expect. Watch lots of instructional videos - youtube is your best friend. Start to recognise the patterns. I resolved to learn absolutely everything by ear, and six months later I was operating in an entirely different musical universe!

Rock on :guitar
