Part Justin, part tab and part by ear

I had a little play around with these using the special button on my strat that takes me straight to open G tuning !!  ;)

I'll have to learn them right through

You show off ;D I bloody hate you - it took me ages to tune my strat - in the end I tuned the telecaster instead which is what I should have done in the first place. It then took me ages to retune the strat . It must be the trem it is awkward to change tunings sometimes you have to keep checking and retuning. Rock steady when its done though

Why an earth I chose the strat to play a Keith Richard song God only knows ??? Good fun though

I started doing the Finger Gym yesterday, and practising right hand tapping, both on my acoustic.
I hope to get into some basic fingerstyle soon.

I've been working on transcribing Incubus' "Drive" (although I had to cheat and watch a couple youtube vids :-\)

I also just started on Justin's "Sweet Home Alabama" vids today. That intro and riff in the verse are just killer, and sound sweet once you start getting them up to speed.

I was practising the intro to Andy Mckee's 'Drifting'. That's still doable, but I don't think I'd get very far with the tapping (relatively high action near the 12th fret for fingerstyle, medium gauge strings, 13-56).

Guess I'll have to learn this off a tutorial or something, I can't possibly transcribe this.

About 6 Christmassy songs for a work "concert" which some of the guys at work are putting on.

Plus the acoustic version of Men at Work's 'Overkill'. Something like this.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeTsUzyzmvI. Challenging in parts but not as hard as it looks. We're looking at doing it a full tone lower though to suit the vocal range of the guy who's singing (not me!!), which meant a bit of transposing after the transcribing was done!

  Yes Happy Jack, it is a very addictive riff. Sadly, I still can't do that fast flick-off part. :(

  Anyway, I'm transcribing Sultans of Swing solos at Mandela's 70th birthday.Those solos are just awesome. Also learning a couple of the lick variations he does(also awesome). Smooth stuff MK. :)

Trying to perfect Back in Black.  Got the song down and know all the notes except I can't play it fast enuff.  I'm using the KM slow downer program and am trying to increase the speed at which I play.  It sounds like an easy song to play but it's not when you want to play it perfectly and up to speed. 

Learning the blues from Justin's site.  Now that's a lot of fun.  You can be so experimental with it.'

I'm learning how to use my new Pocket Pod - not very comprehensive instructions in the book so lots of IBP (Indiscriminate Button Pushing).

Will start on the Really Useful Blues Solos tonight.

Started learning Paolo Nutini - These Streets, chords are easy enough, but good rhythm exercise.
