hello!

can anyone help me find the notes of this riff that plays initially?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMXa0KWFnU8

I only have classical guitar and I want to find the notes to reproduce it

any help please?

I basically need to know at which position to hold and hit the different strings, as I don't know how to read notes

thanks!

Where have you last seen them? Maybe they've gone back home to their notepad...

Alrigh, assumingmy guitar was close enough to standard but too lazy to check, its tuned to "D Standard"

Just to get you started:

First 4 notes are just open D string (the first string)

Then the rest, skip a string and play on the 3rd string (each fret 4 times)

(Fret #s) 14, 12, 9, 10, 9, 10 slightly bent up, 12.

Or something like that, I dont remember and only checked the song once. But that should get you started! Good luck, practice and keep at it and start trying to figure it out by ear,

Lol nvm im way off, just start on the 14 on the 3rd string and work down til you get it

thanks man!
but it's very hard to play at 14 fret on classical guitar
can't we condense the notes to a relatively small area of the frets?
based on that eg 5th fret of string is the same as its below string
#13
14, 12, 9, 10, 9, 5, 7 or something though I already forgot what it sounded like again and omg am I lazy
.
#14
Alright yeah, go up one string to the 4th string and subtract each number by 5, so start on the 9th fret instead

Itll be a little harder to string skip in time from the first 4 notes but hey, good practice for wheb you learn Paul Gilbert stuff lols

I don't understand - basically it doesn't sound right
can you upload each of the notes played very slowly to hear it and try to play the same?
without distortion

if that's all on one string, I think you're forgetting the first note in the riff.

standard tuning:

my bad, tune the first string to D sharp, then everything down half a step from standard tuning.

And no I didn't u noob Reddeath9, I said the first 4 open on the first

oh

EDIT: actually, that part where it goes 4-4-4-4 and then that 43 chord (end of bar 2), I think the last 8 sixteenth notes are playing that 43 chord, it's just a little unclear the first time around.

guys how do I read the tab? the number is the fret, right?
and the top line is the top string? the more base?
#20
oh yeah, you're right, the last 8 notes are the same.

Still tuned to "D# Standard" though and first 4 notes are pedaled on the 1st string.

And yeah gutaror, the lines are the strings (the bottom line is the first, heaviest string), and the number is the fret number.

So a 0 number would just be hitting the string without using your fretting hand


but you could keep your guitar in standard tuning and use his tab, and itll still sound close enough to it

the top line is the high E string, the thinnest string. The number is the fret.

I don't know if there's an online guitar tabbing thing, I just used Guitar Pro 5 and then took a screenshot.
