    Can anybody help me figure out the main part to this song. I usually don't use tabs I prefer being shown something hands on but a tab would work.

    I'm talking about from 3:48 to 4:20. I can figure out a lot by myself. It's really the main riff that's stumping me.

    Okay. I pretty much got the main riff but it's freaking fast.

    Still any help is appreciated. The song has lots of little cool fills.

    Nah, man. I'll take any help I can. Tabs are just like looking at another language thar I must use a translator and slowly figure it out.
    I play by ear but sometimes tabs can help my ear put pieces together quicker.
    I'm actually working on another Mason song "First Rule Of Thumb"

    That's the one I'm seriously lost on haha- I might start a thread on that one

    Weird I can play all those ridiculously hard Brent country solos from Alan Jackson.
    Throw a little "First Rule of Thumb" my way and it's day 1.

    I want nothing more than to be able to play this tune and I've worked on it but cannot get anywhere. I've never done this, but I may have to give up and just enjoy the tune.

    Edit: thank you for posting that by the way.
