So here we go again. Things seem to be going back to normal-ish. Shops are open, people are again buying crap they don't really need. Oh, that reminds me, I could use a new guitar.
In a couple of weeks I'm hitting the new 30, which was the new 40, but is really the old 50. My family hates buying me presents, they say I'm hard to buy for. I've been umming and ahhing about a new actual telecaster for a few years now. Not that I don't like my artist telecaster, but I do have a hankering for a legit one.
Every time I get caught checking it out on my phone my wife rolls her eyes as if I've just been caught watching porn, and tells me to just buy the freaking thing.
Maybe I will.... maybe I will....
Until then it's straturday and I was looking for a Steve Vai Whitesnake song to work on but couldn't find a backing track. A lot of their material has synths in them and I've never been in a band that has keyboards so I've never really learn't one.
The solo is short and not too difficult apart from the run at the end. I used the program Transcribe! which has a cool speed up feature where you can slow down and loop something you're learing and incrementally speed it up every loop. So starting at say 75% every loop goes up by 1% until you get to a speed where your playing falls apart, you get to 100%, or a family member throws something at your head and tells you to shut the hell up.
Anyway! Here t'is. Hope you like it.
