    i hate posers like you who try to lure other posers into learning solos on tab. you probably do reasearch to find the exact tone they used for that solo, and spend your life making guitar videos. You probably don't even know standard notation, all you can do is buy expensive equipment and make videos that capitalize the words "with tabs". I would worry about learning music yourself before you try to teach it. Poser.

  • Reply Mekkō June 2, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    Poser. learn standard notaion and stop trying to think you can teach music because you can buy expesive tone equipment. And for the posers watching, you will never be good watching some nobody to afraid to show his face teach you tabs.

    To pepole, who are complaining for "innacurate" instuctions. Just turn off the "lazy mode" and try to understand something from yourself. It's really clear turtional and you've got "written black on the white". I've learned 3 riffs for some hours, cuz nobody said that it will be easy. I must've turn back to the complete solo played on the beggining of the movie and compare to riff which I tried to play 🙂 Try to give something too, roots of work are sour, but fruits are sweet xD

    @4band1 your right and wrong, yes the single and album version are different, this is the single version which was remastered by george martin and the album version that is the version originally written by the beatles because george harrison liked the way the guitar sounded more "stingy" although, the single came out first

    I don't get the rythm of the 2nd part. I'm still listening to the full solo at the beginning to figure it out, but it seems to me that you play it a bit different than the demonstration in the middle of your video.

  • Reply n3whous3 May 12, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    and also the 3rd part is wrong. You start with sliding upon 7 on the A string, but the tab says 5. Please correct the tabs 🙁

  • Reply n3whous3 May 13, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    (and also a difference, you pick 3 times the A string's 5th fred in the beginning and not 4 as I hear it)

  • Reply oldmal60 February 24, 2013 at 2:12 am

    It starts wrong frets. George uses far more bends, pull offs, slids, to get that "flowing" sound. I know you are (as Nich Olas said) nervous so over distorded it, choppy picking, and lost the bending sustain ring. No offence but you missed many bends and some B and E string work and cut the solo way short. It comes off weak. Sorry.
