What's up

When I'm trying to tab out a song it's like this: If I get the first note in a riff wrong (mostly I do), everything else gets wrong. But If I get the first note right, everything else gets right.

So what the hell can I do to get the first note right?!

well check the tuning by looking at other tabs by the artist, then play the first note of the song over and over, playing different notes with it, and find which one is the right one

A better ear comes with practice, so that's the best way to get good at it. Other than that, when you hear the note hum it and hold it till you find that note on your guitar.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

the reason everything else will be wrong is possibly because your root will set the key. this can easily be fixed though.

How can this be fixed?
