    Midnight-I transcribed the new tapping part

    I have transcribed in powertab the new F# Phrygian Dominant tapping piece Satriani has added to his song Midnight as seen on the Live in Denver G3 DVD and as heard on the G3 Live: Rockin' In The Free World CD. I studied closely frame-by-frame how he played it from the DVD and from a couple of lessons he did for Total Guitar and a clinic vid to get the exact fingerings for this tapping bit as well....Enjoy! (Note: Rhythm may not be exactly right, but it's close enough. I'm no powertab expert!) Lemme know what you guys think of it!

    Cheers!

    Nice one, thanks. I'll have a play of this tonight.

    Does he use any string dampening gizmos when he plays it live? Maybe an old sock around the neck?

    Doesn't look as though there is anything on there, although he may be using tooth floss or something we can't see haha. I'll have to ask him when I meet him in April. I use a sock or a bandana, just tight enough to dampen the strings.
