I may be in over my head, but I will do this.
I was listening to some Beatles tunes last week(anyone surprised?) and decided that I wanted to learn a new one all the way through, but one that would much more challenging than Hey Jude, I Will, or any of the other completely first 4 fret tunes I've done so far. While my Guitar Gently weeps is of course way beyond my realm of ability right now..... so I settled in on Something. The tune itself was not too tough to learn, but the solo, with it's slides and bends is kicking my ass.
... but I WILL DO IT!
I found a great instructional video on youtube that teaches just the solo with demonstration, and tab. I've got the first two thirds down with some rough edges, and have been through all of it slowly just once. I'm taking it in small bites, and putting the pieces together. I'm hoping to be presentable with it by week's end. I think when I get this one down I'll actually feel like I can play something.... no pun intended.
