8/17 - Tab Updates

Posted on August 17, 2019 at 11:40 PM

No video this weekend, but here's a pretty substantial tabs update:


-I updated the "Other Bands/Misc." page a bit. I now have it sorted in the following order: LP drum tabs, LP remixes I've been involved with, LP covers I've been involved with, and tabs for other artists. I've removed entries for stuff by my non-LP-related music projects as part of my efforts to keep that side of my music career as its own entity. I also added a tab to this page, it's actually one I posted ages ago for a Leo Brouwer classical guitar etude and never put on the page for some reason. This section will likely not be updated very often, although I do at least intend to add tabs for the listed covers/remixes that haven't been posted yet.


-Bass tabs: I updated my tab for Iridescent a bit (the bass in the second verse is a little different than what I thought, and the C notes at the end of the song are all played on the low D string instead of the A string), and also added a separate bass tab for the Iridescent "Energy Up Version" from Transformers, as the bassline is a little different in that one.


In addition, the following guitar tabs have been updated in some significant form (many others have seen formatting updates, but no changes to their actual content):


-Iridescent: I reverted back from thinking the main guitar line is played by a combination of two guitars, it's actually one. I did change some of the 2-note chords to 3-note chords though, as the low G under the first part of that riff is very prominent on the album version. I also made a slight change to the slide at the end of Guitar 1's clean line after the first chorus, and the rhythm guitars play a higher variation of the A5 chord at the very end of the song from what I thought they did.


-Iridescent (Energy Up Version): Made all the changes necessary for this version to be consistent with the album version. I also realized that the EBow guitar part is present in the second chorus of this version along with the extra clean guitar, so I added that as well.


-Not Alone: The part Guitar 1 plays at the end of the first verse is a little different from what I thought, and Guitar 2's entire part is a bit more complicated than what I had before.


-Carry Me Away: Added a lot of parenthetical notation stuff for when notes are carried across from one staff to the next.


I have a few more tab updates in the works, mainly I need to completely redo Mike's remix of Castle of Glass from Recharged (there's a lot more guitar in there than I thought), and potentially look at updates to a few more things. After that I'm going to jump back into working on the LPU 15 and 16 songs, then tackle a few oddball songs I've never tabbed like Bruiser, Closing, Fiends, and some collaborations/remixes.
