They May Not Be Satan's Best Knights...

Hey!

DETROIT ROCK CITY
Quick one this time. Fun songs, some good stuff in there. The solos aren't too hard, and are actually kinda fun to play when you get them memorized. Only thing I hate is that this songs has a lead and a rhythm, so while it may be easy to switch between the two on a Fake Plastic Guitar, the two parts are too far away on the fretboard to combine easily. It's possible, but tricky.

Surprising the solo wasn't the hardest part about this song. It actually feels natural once you play it a time or two.

Anyway, hardest part is right here at 1:29-
e|------------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------------
G|-----------------------------------------
D|---------------------------1---------1---
A|----3--3-1---1-3---3-1-3---3---1-3---3-
E|------------3------------------3----------


Easy enough, right?
Play that one and a half times (11th note) then go into this:
D--10-10-10-10-8------
A-------------------10--

Repeat for another one and a half times, then take it up one full note:
e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------3-------3---|
A|----5--5-3----3-5----5-3-5---5---3---5-|
E|------------5------------------5-------|

And the kicker:
e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|----------3--------1------|
A|----5-3-5---5----1---3----|
E|---------------3----------|

Looks simple, but switch positions at the speed the song is played is pretty tricky.

SETLIST UPDATED

Tomorrow I start a series I call "Weekend Of Hell", where I try to write my song for the Rock Revolution contest. I might get a couple songs knocked out of the way while I'm already on the guitar.
