Hi guys,

does anyone out dare have or dare to finish the tab for the cover that these 2 guitar monsters did for Donna Lee?Someone started out a transcription in Soundslice but never ended it up:

Any help will be appreciated.

    While it's not the solo, I figured out the chords played by Benoit under the head and posted them a while ago here:
    This is well worth studying at slower speeds and working up to tempo as a rhythm workout. Or more accurately, this helped me out.

    Thank you,Jim!I already kept this chord sheet by you,I got it time ago and help me a lot to learn them.Now I am working with the tune and there's no need to say it's really hard stuff that's why I needed extra help with the tab.I know it's not the best way tho learn nothing at all but it is out of my reach by now.These 2 guys are have their fast fingers loaded with heavy fuel!

    I recently learned Adrien's solo on this version. took me few days tho. I need to figure out a way to share solos with others. I used to use guitarpro and that was great be really time consuming to produce an accurate notated solo. I still haven't figured out the sound slice thing.

    Maybe someone else could help us with the several ways of transcribing easily and quickly.I have only tried the handwritten and text format.

    man if you guys just want the notes and not the rhythm or ornaments, i can transcribe that almost as fast as i hear it, but since i have to go note by note, it wouldn't be at the same speed of the recording.. i'm guessing less than 30 minutes but i'm super busy.

    I wish that the transcriptions that i have to do were that easy

    That one is easy??? :-)

    I guess easy is a relative thing...

    Haha, no, you missed where he wrote "but i'm super busy". So probably not an offer to transcribe, but more likely just a flagrant brag ;)

    It might sound like a brag however there's a lesson in there too. The more you do it, easier it gets. It's a skill. And I believe Dennis was sincere when he said that.
    Especially​ for you @Josechiky if you think this is too advanced for you to transcribe then I'm guessing it's too advanced to play. Tackling the whole thing might be just a source of frustration instead of reward.
    In that case you'd be better off picking a section that you especially like, even a single line or a lick and transcribe that yourself.
    That shouldn't be hard using amazing slow downer or similar program.
