  Yep, and I finally got a blister on my little finger, and a blister on my thumb, after playing the guitar on the MTV. Now that's the way you do it...

  Well that was pretty cheesy... :D

  In "normal" numbers, it's a countdown: 5,4,3,2,1. :)

  I,V,ii,IV= 1,5,2,4. Which might be a chord progression...

Pretty good, I can almost play the verse part fluently (with two hands indeed), and the bit that comes after it (some kind of pre-chorus, but then I don't know what the chorus is).
Got the intro nearly down too.
My right index finger hurts now, callus hasn't grown enough yet. :P

I can only play the main riff, and probably some others which I haven't memorized. And I can't bend with 13s!

Hi Guys, I've just started learning "Plug In Baby" by Muse and I'm wondering what key it's in and which scale the intro is based on. Can someone enlighten me please ???

Are you learning it with the starting note on the 8th fret 4th string yes?  Should be in A sharp.

I'm now learning Behind Blue Eyes by The Who (of course, not by Limp Bizkit)

If you want the tab, just got the intro and verse so far, but I can scan it for you if you want

Thanks for the offer but I tend to use Guitarpro tabs.

I have got a Lick Library lesson as well but thanks again

Just started Easy Walkin Blues from Solo Blues Guitar - so far so good as this one isn't too hard at all, but it sure looks like the difficulty ramps up a bit as the series progresses.

Hope to start trying to transpose RUBS tonight - transposing is my weakest area but I'm determined to give it a real crack.

Why don't you guys transcribe and depend on your own ears?  I have KM player installed which slows the sound down but does not change the pitch.  I have learned to the solo to Hey Joe by putting it at 35% and just listening and I over 3 days have it figured out all by myself with NO TABS  Give it a go.  It makes life easier when all you have to do is depend on your own ears!!

Yes, that's where it starts, but the key on the standard notation above the tab is ## indicating it's in Bm or D! I can't figure it out. If it's in A# what scale is it based on?

Licks - believe me, I try for hours on end at transposing, but even when my guitar is tuned with a tuner, to my ear I barely tell that the note played at the 5th fret of the 6th string is the same as the open 5th string. If you play 2 notes I can't tell which one is higher or which one is lower - so when transposing I don't even know to go up or down. I've been trying on and off for over 25 years to transpose music and still suck at it but I keep trying.

I'm hoping that now I know more theory I will have more success - the first RUBS pieces use the minor pentatonic in A position 1 so at least I know which ballpark to play in.

  I agree, not having to look at a dodgy tab website that has songs that were "transcribed" by GuitarPro! I dislike the lick-library website because even though I'm a member, it won't show me the full jamtrack!  :o
