Now Your Ships Are Burned tab

The blog post for the lesson is missing the tabs but I have a PDF copy of the original lesson that Troy did for “Now Your Ships Are Burned” that has all the tabs. Think I grabbed it from scribd some time ago but it’s probably still there. It would be great if the post could be updated with them…

In case you haven’t checked it out, it is probably one the best guitar lessons and insights to a player out there. Even though it came before CTC it’s a coda to the Volcano seminar with Troy showing how to play Yngwie’s solo with all the tools you learned from the seminar. Best part is Troy demonstrating that you basically only need two scale fingerings to play 90% of all of Yngwie’s stuff!

Wow man! Thank you for posting this! I never knew that you could find such amazing material if you go back to blog posts that are almost 12 years old!

Now I have plenty of interesting articles to discover :slight_smile:

That post has some cool stuff in it but there’s nothing in there about what actually makes these lines playable, i.e. downward pickslanting, so the entire thing would really need an update. That, and we’d probably have to SoundSlice all the tab examples. We’re still working on getting the tech in place to add new content quickly to the platform. Once we get some more interview content up and running, we can take a look at some of this older stuff to modernize.

Cool beans. I’d love to see some more analysis like this in the future. As for what makes these lines playable, you show most (if not all) of them in Volcano so it’s like a lesson in applying what you’ve learned from the seminar.

This rules. Is the tab pdf in the blog post?

Just leaving this here…

Three ways to play the intro lick, which one does Yngwie use?

Based on Troy’s original transcription

I’ve synced the rhythm to the original audio and changed some of Troy’s notes

Hopefully Troy will find time to comment
