Great stuff! Is the systematic term for the tuning something like D6 or something like that?
Correction, something more like D6sus4.

Oh my god! I've been waiting for this so much as I've been too lazy to transcribe it myself. Too bad there's so much stuff I'm doing right now, but I will learn it in the future definitely ! :)

The tuning is called "Double Drop D".

This was the hardest TAB I have had to write out I think... and Dario didn't like putting it into Sibelius either!!

J, I was asking for the 'systematic' name for the tuning. ;)
Just like standard is some kind of A chord with an E in the bass.

Holy Crap! This TAB is SIXTEEN pages. I'll be old and decrepit before I learn this. :(

Is the demo version on Justin's MySpace the same as the one on the album? If not I'll have to wait 'till the 28th so I can purchase it off iTunes. If it is the same, I'm good to go.

I'm at part C/page 3 (not 99 lol)/18,75%/bar 18. It's really fun to play even though I can only play just that little bit. Justin, you're a genius.

@ Cue Zephyr - it's pretty much the same, but not quite - but close enough to learn from - the bit after the solo is a little different is all.

Systematic name - I guess you could call it a D6sus4.

@ PJMCM - yeah - but it's lots of repeats!

Alright, I'll manage, I hope! I want to have it down even before the video comes out, haha.

So I was correct about the systematic name of the tuning, thanks for the acknowledgement.

Part D, still at it. :D

Damn...I love this...but it's kind of confusing.  Can Justin or someone decipher what I'm supposed to do here:

      ______
|---(0)----2
|--------------
|----0---------

The the underscores are supposed to be hammer-on/phrase mark thingys.  I just don't know what to do with (myself :P great song - sorry offtrack) the (0)

Hey J, I have a little question for you.
How do you slap the strings and play a string at the same time?

Edit:
The tabs seem to differ quite a lot from what is played in your demo version, Justin. :P
That's fine though, because I'm really having fun with listening to it and trying to work out what you are really doing.

the demo and recording are different.

you'll have to wait for the video for the how to hit and play notes at the same time, too hard to explain with text! sorry.

@ mbarrett12 - the bracketed note is just a tied note (not played, still ringing from earlier in the tune), so hammer on the 2.

You caught up with me, haha. Great stuff J, looking forward to the other 3 parts (and the album :P)!

You seem to be bending with great ease, what gauge strings are on your Jester? Because either I suck or my strings are a bit on the heavy side.

This is a beautiful acoustic piece that I believe could become a real classic of the genre (hope that doesn't sound too pretentious!). Thanks so much for taking the trouble to produce a set of video lessons showing how to play it properly (though I have not yet been able to find Part 4). The new camera purchase has certainly paid off; the video looks and sounds fantastic full screen at full HD resolution.

Thanks also to you and Dario for producing the score to back up the video. Given all your efforts, I hope you will forgive me for pointing out that there appear to be some errors and inconsistencies between song and tab just in the first few bars, which is as far I have got so far. The main point I would make is that D Mixolydian (i.e. key signature F#) would seem a more suitable choice of key than D Major. It may be the choice of D Major as the key signature which led indirectly to the bend at the end of bar 1 being shown as a full bend rather than a half bend; the former (if you can do it!) would take you to C#, which, though consistent with the key signature sounds wrong. I am sure it is meant to be a C natural, hence the choice of D Mixolydian.

I realise that this is not likely to be a problem if you are using the video lessons as a reference, but there may be people who for whatever reason need or want to learn the piece from the score. In any case, I'm sure you would want the definitive score to be correct!

@ Smudger54 - we're on it... Dario should have me the corrected version soon.

Thank you!

I have worked through it a couple of weeks ago. Now I'm meticulously trying to play it fluently, and still waiting for the album to come so I can play along with the album version, since it's different form the demo version.
I don't play it EXACTLY like J does, but I'll get there. I'm having a lot of trouble with the intro (as well as the intro with the bass note), and the fast run to conclude the solo.
