I guess this is the place to ask, so here goes...

I'm trying to figure out how to play "Mental Masturbation" by Jackyl. It was on the "Beavis and Butt-head Experience." If anyone can help me out with this or point give some positive feedback, that would be greatly appreciated. Below is a link to the song, and my rendition of it.

I just started trying to do it yesterday, but what I got that sounds half decent, is tuned down a half step, and the rhythm goes something like this:

Riff 1
eb|------------------|----------------------
bb|------------------|----------------------
gb|------------------|----------------------
db|-2-2-5-5-7-7--|-2-2-5-5-7-7-5-5--
Ab|-2-2-5-5-7-7--|-2-2-5-5-7-7-5-5--
Eb|-0-0-3-3-5-5--|-0-0-3-3-5-5-3-3--

Repeat this a few times, then it goes:

Riff2
eb|------------------|---------------------
bb|------------------|---------------------
gb|-2-2-5-5-7-7--|-2-2-5-5-7-7-5---
db|-2-2-5-5-7-7--|-2-2-5-5-7-7-5---
Ab|-0-0-3-3-5-5--|-0-0-3-3-5-5-3---
Eb|------------------|---------------------

That is played twice, then it goes back to Riff 1 once, then goes to:

Riff 3
eb|------------------|----------------------------
bb|------------------|----------------------------
gb|-5--5--5-5-5---|----------------------------
db|-5--5--5-5-5---|-5----5----5----5/7--2--
Ab|-3--3--3-3-3---|-5----5----5----5/7--2--
Eb| -----------------|-3--0-3-0-3-0-3/5---0--


I have no idea on the solo.

I dont think riffs 1&2 are correct. In Riff one I only hear 2 chords. Also it is definitely not tuned a half step down. Try playin what you got but take out the power chord on the 3rd fret of the first measure for the first and second riff.

Thanks, I will try that. I wasn't expecting much, if any of it, to be correct. I'm hoping that somehow this song will be tabbed out. I hear what you are saying about the 2 chords, I guess the way the music goes, I was hearing a third. I'm not exactly good at picking notes by ear. I have gotten lucky on a few occassions, though.
