Hello. I’m learning a song by an early 2000’s J-Rock band called Janne Da Arc. There’s quite a few tabs for their songs, but I’m playing a song by ear there isn’t a tab or live play-through (even a cover) of. Huge mistake, as the guitarist is an absolute madman on the axe.
The part in question begins at around 1:02-1:04 into the song, linked here:
I’m wondering how I should go about playing this part. Is it just a really fast legato part? Could someone possibly walk me through what I’d need to practice to get in the ballpark?
Sounds like finger tapping to me, maybe just hammer-ons.
If you have worked out the key of the song, based off of the chords in use you may be able to have an educated guess on the notes being played, I would start with notes from the pentatonic scale.
That’s how I would approach it anyway.
Thank you! Last question… at around 3:28-3:32, any idea what he’s doing here? It sounds like sweep-picking to me, but I might be wrong.
Sounds like it to me too, but I’m no expert on that.
Have a mess and see what happens
