At Least That's What You Said guitar solo

Recommended Posts

Inspired by this great video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvwJSiyPG1s

 

I set out to try to meticulously tab out everything that's going on in this song. Needless to say, it's quite difficult to pick everything out, but I think I have a pretty good stab at it. There's a few "key" licks to learn, and then you interweave them with improvisational riffs. Jeff doesn't really play the song the same way twice from what I can see from live videos. Learning the licks below should give you a good basis to somewhat imitate what he's doing. Mainly from what I can see it's a lot of very cool variations on hammer ons and pull offs.

 

I use this software to help slow the recording down and pick out the notes: https://www.seventhstring.com/xscribe/overview.html

 

I'd recommend using something similar to help play along. However it's tough to be 100% accurate with all the stuff going on and the distortion. 

 

For his effects, Jeff is using some sort of quick delay and what sounds like a Crowther Prunes and Custard pedal, probably through a Vox amp.

 

The tuning from what I can tell is drop D capo 5, but it's very rarely relevant, only one note in the initial lick leading into the solo is for sure a note that you can only get by being in drop D with a capo.

 

Anyway, here is the drop D, capo 5 version, corrections very much welcome:

 

Lead in riff

B---------------------------------------------------------10~~10~~10~~10~~10b--

Then this lick, played with lots of vibrato       (4 measure of 12)

E-----7-9b--9b--7-10-7--7-9-7-10--7-9-7-10--7-9---12-12-12-12--12-12-12-12--12-12-14-14--
