About tabs, I'm too lazy to make one...sorry..

Yeah, I found this video while seeing if anyone had already covered the song (for lead guitar). I used it as a base for my cover I'm gonna do, cause although most of the riffs so far I could do by ear seeing them being played helped. So thanks! And soon I'll hopefully have a cover of the lead guitar.
You're welcome my friend!

The Bard's Song - The Hobbit

I think that was actually the first BG song I learned. I recorded myself on a tape recorder years ago playing the rhythm and then I would play the leads along with the tape. That was a fun way to jam with yourself. :)

My first was Majesty. I loved it so much, that decided I must learn all BG songs. This is how I found My music.

Last played: Noldor. Not very interesting song, but as usually The Solo makes it worth playing.

Woohooo! I was waiting for this. Will try it today after work. I expect that the rhythm guitar is tabbed precisely - the youtube video assures me on this. You even tabbed the lead guitars. Great! Thank you very much!

Good luck, Edain! Looking forward to it. :)

Last played: Tanelorn (Into The Void) :twisted: Thank you, loren! We all appreciate your efforts. The tab is almost perfect. And I must say this song is quite challenging. At least for me.

My small amateur notes about the lead guitar section, if you don't mind:
* It seems that at the end of 10, 12, 14 and 16 bars there should be no tremolo picking on the 7th fret.
* Lead guitar in chorus is not complete.
* In the verse 4 the lead guitar must be probably in the lower octave, I can't hear such high notes.
* Not sure that "After Chorus" from the 211 bar is correct too.
* The solo is tabbed perfectly! :wink:

And my thoughts about the song itself: for me it is like a combination of styles from FTB (Damned For All Time) and TFTTW (Weird Dreams) albums, but there are also new elements that I didn't notice in their previous works.

* I used a vocal remover (it gets very handy at some points of some songs when there are so many layers) to distinguish what is played and make this tab. At the chorus I didn't hear anything else played by guitars. Maybe something like a backround thing just to give it a nice touch. I just didn't see the point to try to tab this precisely as it is not that audible. Maybe there's indeed something else I didn't hear, I don't know. :oops:
*Well similar to what I said above, that's what it sounded to me so go to hell :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: .....Kidding! :mrgreen:
*This statement of yours I really can't see. I think it is exactly what is played in the actual song. Maybe you need to increase the rhythm guitar volume at that part to see what I mean. (I forgot to make a volume adjustment there)
*Thanks mate!!

Road of no Release - but as I'm not really a guitarist without the solo. :mrgreen:

I want to learn Majesty, it will be original and very amusing. I don't know when I will, 'cause it's not very easy for me, I've been playing only since last year, and so...

I just finished learning Nightfall, and I have to say it's probably my favorite song to play now. :D

Nightfall is truly a very pleasant song to play.

Last played: Banish From Sanctuary. I think this song got the best solo.

One of the only two BG songs I know, Welcome to Dying. I learned it and Majesty all the way through, and Dying is, IMO, much more fun.

Traveler in Time, rhythm

I'm not much of a lead player... at least the faster stuff. I can do the "Nightfall" and "Fade To Black" kind of stuff though.

I don't want this topic to die. Come on guys and gals, I want to know who is playing what!

If anyone wants to know ( :lol: ), the last song that I played was... Road Of No Release, tabbed by loren, of course (on the new guitar, that I bought recently, btw). Although I played it not entirely, only until the solo. It will take time to learn this very nice song.

In terms of not letting the topic die, the last bg songs I used to play were the bards song (own arrangement for guitar solo, combining the 1st&2nd guitar and vocal melodies) and the time what is time intro on my classical, lost in the twilight hall and the lead/solo sections of mirror mirror, born in a mourning hall, into the storm, punishment divine on my electrics. I think I played a bg song on my western too, but I somehow can't remember which ;) Also, that's no particular order, since it's been a few years since I played them.
I wanted to make solo arrangements (one guitar plays all melodies) for harvest of sorrow and APAFS too, since the bards song sounded quite nice, but somehow I lost interest ;)

Been listening to Wheel of time, voice in the dark, and the bard song for two weeks on my ipod. Listening to blood tears right now.

my favorit BG songs are voice in the dark, bard song, blood tears, wheel of time, and past and future secret.

I think the topic is what song you played, like on your instrument, not like on your stereo ;)

Sadly Sings Destiny. I start to really enjoy playing ANATO songs. To this moment it was my least favorite album if it goes about playing it myself, maybe because of its complexity.
