Alright, so my band plays this blues song and i have three solos in it. For my last solo, i was thinking about kinda using a tweaked version of the pull offs from the Fade to Black (metallica) outro solo. I assumed this song was in Am because of the verse chords, but it didnt exactly work that well playing over the blues song chords
e|------5---7--|
B|------5---7--|
G|--6---5---7--|
D|--5---4---6--|
A|--7---5---7--|
E|--5----------|
those are the 3 chords (just shapes, thats not the rythm/timing they are played haha)


e|--15---12-----12--15-12--14--12-----12|--17--14------14--17-|
B|-----------12-------------------12----|----------15---------|
G|--------------------------------------|---------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|---------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|---------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|---------------------|


Thats the Fade to black lick (plus moving it up the 19,17,15 on high e) So would i have to move it up so instead of starting with index on 12 on high e it starts at 15? I wouldnt be able to do the last part because id be on the 24th by the third lick though

A7 - D9 - E9


It's a I-IV-V in A major. The G in A7 and the C in D9 aren't diatonic but it's bluesy and it resolves to the first A major chord.


You never said.... What key are you transposing this to?


Edit: I assume you want to transpose the Fade to Black solo lick from E minor to A major, huh?

As a rule of thumb, every Metallica song is in E minor.

Yeah, i probobly should have looked at the chords that were bein played during the solo

Iron Maiden seems to stick to E minor a lot too.

So how do i go about turning this into a usable lick in A Major?

Probably, haha.

I don't know about Maiden's songs. I love them to death but the solos are too hard for me so I don't bother learning the songs. I learn the Metallica songs in which I CAN play the solos though.


Just play the same shape starting on the 5th fret but make the changes from minor to major (raise the 3rd, 6th, and 7th degrees a half step). You do that because you know the FtB bit is in E minor and it starts on an E note and you're bringing it to A major so starting on an A note is obvious. Raising the 3rd, 6th, and 7th a half-step will bring it from A minor to A major. (had to change C to C# and G to G#)

That will make it:

e|-5---9p5----5--9p5--7p5-|--10p7-------7----10p7----|---9---------12p9---10p9-----|
B|---------5--------------|--------9-----------------|-------10--------------------|
G|------------------------|--------------------------|-----------------------------|
D|------------------------|--------------------------|-----------------------------|
A|------------------------|--------------------------|-----------------------------|
E|------------------------|--------------------------|-----------------------------|
etc.
