    the link in the OP takes you to the site where they are. Just click the album cover and it opens as a PDF.

    Well, some kid who is trying to learn the song may get frustrated and give up, or learn the song that way and always struggle with it. I mean, in the era where you can get free tabs (regardless of the quality) and watch tutorials on Youtube, the books really have to offer perfection to justify their existence. And personally I just don't understand how somebody could put so much effort into working out an entire album note for note and not get simple things like that right. I've made a few tabs for UltimateGuitar just because I learned the songs and felt I might as well share them, and even without being paid, I was very conscientious of presentation.

    I'm not sure if this is what you are referring to, but one of my tabs was Headspace by Velvet Revolver, and there's a stupidly fast ascending lick that I spent a lot of time trying to make out the notes of. Even having slowed the tempo, I was constantly second-guessing what notes I was hearing and in what order. But eventually I was able to settle on the right lick. In that case, I have to disagree about just learning the jist of fast licks because it's when you're pushing yourself to play something fast that isn't just a simplified pattern, that you're really challenging your muscle memory.

    https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/v/velvet_revolver/headspace_ver4_tab.htm

    However, if you're referring to solos that have mistakes on the record, then I agree because you can never replicate a mistake perfectly. For example, another tab I did was Ride On by AC/DC and the very last lick of the solo is, coincidentally, similar to Slash's signature lick. But it's pretty clear that Angus didn't actually write a specific pattern and was just loosely picking and fretting around a rough idea of a pattern, and there's at least one bad note in there. In that case, to truly play the solo accurately and capture that frantic energy, you must do the same thing, and trying to play the pattern perfectly will not sound right.

    You have a point but there's something gratifying in sitting down, opening up that GnR or Metallica book and staring at a daunting riff/lick/solo and working on it slowly until you finally can play it. Especially when it starts out sounding not a lot like how it should and then it starts to take shape. Plus it helps having the music staff right above the tab to help flesh out the piece rhythmically. I've used YouTube for sure and it's quick and helpful at times but those tab books, man, those tab books are great. Maybe I'm old school.

    Slash is the Pee Wee Herman of guitarists. All act and no performance, just noise.

    That must be why he's had consistent work and income playing guitar for the past 30 years. :laugh2:
