The opening lick is a somewhat simple arpeggiated figure that is a bit tough on the timing but, with a little listening to the album, it should be playable in no time at all. I'm not sure if the timing is as accurate as it could be. I don't compose music for orchestras but, I do know a bit about timing, etc. I'm just hoping that it's right. When playing Riff: 2, try and play it as "fluidly" as possible. If you listen to Mike's playing on the album, he plays it a great deal of finesse. So keep that in mind performing that particular riff. Riffs 3, 6A and 6B are all pretty much similar but, with a slight variation in each. The guitar solo is a bit tough. Mike doesn't play a guitar a whammy bar to my knowledge (at least not live) so get your fingers warmed up for some serious vibrato! Riff: 4B has major vibrato in it. I must give credit to Mark Wiebe (rwiebe@mindlink.bc.ca) for his transcription of "Denied". He had recently posted his version to OLGA as I was in the middle of mine. I used his solo for a bit of inspiration and borrowed a couple of notes from it for my transcription. The outro solo is a bit buried in the mix. Hopefully, someday I can figure that out and I'll be able to post it. The last lick in the song is basically in free time and it's a distorted and contorted version of the opening riff. Listen to the song for more details. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or comments at morgano@ici.net. Enjoy!!!
