Does anybody have any video's or clips of a Children of Bodom solo played on a guitar with only 22 frets? I'm in love with the Jackson RR1, but it has 22 frets (I want to buy a guitar made in America, and want two humbuckers).

how many of their solos utilise the 23rd and 24th fret on the top E?

They're the only ones that are unique to a 24 fret guitar. You can check the tabs yourself to find out whether it'd suffice or not.

No I know that, they are just one of my favorite bands, and most of Alexi's solos DO use the 23rd and 24th fret, I just want to hear what it sounds like when someone bends or uses another note.

I have seen someone that plays one of their solos on 22 frets but he doesn't detune so his rhythm wont be as low. Also there are guitars that are made in America, have 24 frets and two humbuckers, just look harder.

That's a really bad example; you can't even hear his guitar.

TS - What you're going to have to do is either substitute a different fret to take the place of the 24th fret or harmonize what Alexi is playing with something you can play without the 23rd and 24th fret. It's not that big of a deal if you don't care that you're not playing the exact CoB solos note-for-note. But if it's that important to you just get an RR24 then. That's kind of why it was made.

Here's an example of a guitarist who harmonizes due to not having 24 frets. The ending solo (arpeggios) is what I refer to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmFGaibzrdw

Or he could just bend the note before picking it. IE tab says 24th fret. He bends the 22nd up a whole step to make it sound like the 24th.

That's not really feasible because at least half the time Alexi uses the 24th fret in a solo, it's to tap or it's simply just passed by too quickly to have time to bend from the 22nd fret.

there's one dude on youtube who's covered literally almost every song by COB on a 22 fret guitar.

here's one video.

ever hear of the 24th fret harmonic?

I assure you, covering most COB songs on a 22 fret guitar only poses minor challenges.

There are probably quite a few Bodom songs which features solo's not using the highest frets. You just need to look at tabs.

You should add to solo's though, not just learn em note by note, im sure you could easily miss a couple of notes.

Thanks guys. This might not even matter, because I just tried out a Jackson Rhoads (the GC slip said model 290, which I don't think is right, but it was around $800), and I'm not sure if I like the feel of a Rhoads. I'm going to go back and try when it has all 6 strings on it.

I did, however, really like a Dinky DK2T (I think) that I played. So I'm thinking that I might really like an SLH2 Soloist.

Why don't you get the 22-fret guitar and learn to stop using tabs? Improvise the solo and play the rest by ear.


Agreed

I didn't deny that. In fact, that's exactly what I said if you scroll up and read my first post. I was simply replying to someone who said that you can simply bend to hit the 24th fret notes.
