Here is my transcription of a song off of Seasons End...it's in 3/4 time.

Anyway, this is most of the rhythm guitar...you should be able to figure out the rest by listening to it. If I get enough requests, I'll take the time to transcribe the solo for you, it typically showcases Steve Rothery's ability to make his guitar sing (in much the same manner he does in "Kayleigh"), and is a wonderful exercise in melodic playing! Also, if anyone is a Marillion freak, perhaps you'd interested in the Rhythm 1 of "The King of Sunset Town" which goes like this...
E---------0-----------0-----------0------- B-------1---1-------1---1-------1---1----- G-----3-------3---3-------3---3-------3--- D---3-----------2-----------0-----------2- etc. A----------------------------------------- E-----------------------------------------
Perhaps more from this album and their others later! Later much! Brandon From: ronakaps@aol.com (RonAKaps) EASTER (solo) by Marillion (an interpretation) Here's the way I play it on my six-string, standard tuning, no capo. Lots of bends, vibrato, and harmonics - fierce emotion. Arguably Steve's most powerful solo (it's my favorite anyway). ~ - vibrato (finger or whammy -whatever fits) p - pull off h - hammer on r - release bend s - slide /s - slide from infinity b(n) - bend to pitch of fret (n) Guitar Solo - beginning at about 2:29

Could somebody PLEASE decode the 'mystery' lick at 3:41? It sounds like sweep picking. I've tried listening at half speed, but I just can't figure it out. This has eluded me for years...

Please permit me to include the following response that I received after I first posted this tab... ~Subject: Re: TAB: EASTER (solo) ~From: dta@avon.dcs.exeter.ac.uk (Dan Tallis) ~Date: Mon, 7 Nov 1994 10:07:05 GMT Message-ID: This is what I play (well, try to play, and fail!). It's not quite right but it's a start... Maybe someone else can improve on it...

(You can see it on the Easter video, on the 6 of 1... compilation.) By the way, I think Steve starts the solo on the 7th fret of the top E string and works up from there. I'm sure you've got the notes right, but it might make a difference to the tone. Also, at the end, it sounds to me like he somehow takes that final note up an octave as it fades. I can only guess he uses a harmonic... (I play:) (touch for harmonic) (top E) --12---10---5------3-------(15)--- ... but then again it sounds like it happens too gradually to be a harmonic like that. Any ideas? Dan -- Thanks Dan! RonAKaps@aol.com - Are there any other Marillion fans in Omaha, Nebraska?
