Can anyone tab this 3 seconds section out by ear or recommend free slow down software?

    I'd like to learn this flurry of notes at the 8.12 minute mark but it's like nothing I know how to play so am having a hard time breaking it down. It seems to be a pattern repeated 3 times with a variation on the last repeat. Wondering if anyone knows how to tab it out by ear or using one of those new slow down software programs? If you know of a free program that will work for this please let me know. Thanks.

    Audacity is free software.
    It suits all my purposes for home recording and editing.
    You can change pitch, change speed, etc etc.
    Only slowing down audio - video, I don't know.

    At first glance, looks like a diminished scale arpeggio.

    You can slow it down on youtube, click settings on the video the 3 dots if your on your phone. It should have an option for playback speed.

    Thats what i did with some of Shawn Lanes licks was slowed them down, then used my ear. This one looks like he is sweeping two different arps. Maybe one dim first then one major/minor and then back to dim to finish with.

    I prefer to economy pick them but to sound like that the dim ones would sound better with the sweep stroke.

    I think he is sweeping them too. Something I have never bothered with but I like the small run he threw in there. My brain just has trouble grasping what notes he's playing. I've heard him play that same run or something very similar before on electric.

    Here are some of his licks he uses many look similar to some of Shawn's ones, their are many sweeping ones near the end.

    As mentioned YouTube will do it.

    Some times I can import a clip into Logic Pro and if the clip is clear enough it will recognize the pitches for me.

    Thanks, I will check them out. I'm pretty sure he has a basic bag of tricks he repeats just like everyone does which is why I recognised it in that acoustic clip. Hopefully it is already tabbed out somewhere in there or elsewhere. The more references to take from the better.

    I just clicked the wrong way and sped it up by mistake, everything sounded amazing on the fastest setting even the intro.:)
    I did try the slowest speed and can see better but still hard to picks the notes.

    Doesn’t it look something like


    3-5-6 or 3-5-7 on the A string

    And then dropping down to the B string and going 7-9-10



    On the first of three passes.

    Sounds like a sweep but looks like a run?

    I'd like to learn how he gets that acoustic to sound so "big" without feeding back!

    1. Use YouTube to MP3 web site.
    2. download MP3 and load into Audacity.
    3. highlight part you want slow, slow that part — I slow by 30%, any more and it gets too distorted. Also note, use the setting to change tempo without changing pitch
    4. hit shift and the play button at the same time for infinite repeats of that passage.

    You might need a file called “lame.dll” or something like that for audacity to read MP3s. It’s one extra minor download and is easy to do

    I do this all the time to learn tough solos and passages. It has really improved my ability as a guitarist (IMO)

    I think he might be starting on the a string 2nd fret and playing across the strings sweeping as he goes to the 3rd fret d, 5th fret g and so on. I can kind of make it out on .5 x speed but it's still a bit of a blur and the sound suffers. Ill have another go using the links above tomorrow. My eyes and ears are fried after watching that clip a bunch of times in slo mo.

    He's really digging in on the strings, seems to be playing through a dyna comp too. Lost of palm muting going on there. I'm really digging this part i'm trying to figure out but the intro jam and whole song is really cool too. Its a variation of one of his songs he normally plays on a tele with his band. Lots noodling around in the beginning.

    I like the intro.



    That’s how I play, I mean, that’s what I try to sound like.





    I looked up his tabs, a lot of song titles with a single word, that’s cool.



    And of course, Every Rose has its Thorn is a classic.

    It's like a whole other song he should work up. I like it too, especially the slide on two strings part. It's nothing like the original version of that song though. That acoustic has a nice tone on the lead impov at the start. I think it might be tuned down a half step too because I was playing along earlier and my tuning sounded sharp.
