Hey Team,
I have added TAB for the "Touch Of Grey Solo" YouTube I did a few months ago.
I labeled it line by line (in case there is any question on any segment).
Cool,
Pete B.

Edit: I have added the CAGED Chord forms for the first 4 lines (so far).
Strum along using just the chord forms on the neck, then add the arrpegios with the picking hand.

THANKS MAN! I really appreciate this one! I have watched the video in amazement a bunch of time and I know the basis behind the caged system but Ive never been able to totally figure it out.

I wish I could PM you a beer! :drink:

Ditto! Thanks soSO much for the tab. I've wanted to play the solo for some time, and the vid helps, but the tab+the vid is the best way for me to learn! You're awesome!

Thanks for this one, all this time i have been so close but never gave it enough time to figure out exactly.
This was a great tab for the solo sounds pretty dead on to me.

Amen Pete! I was listening to the album version of this last night (I know - not a touchhead, just need some ol' reassurance from the boys) and was thinking: I should check around for this solo sometime. Lo and behold, here it is right in the most active posts. Talk about synchronisity. Thanks again.

Pete, that is really freakin' good. Right on time too. I have a gig with a wedding band Saturday night and they asked if I can play Touch of Grey. I've always known the tune but never worked out the solo correctly. Thanks again. That Strat sounds unusually woody and nice too btw.

Hey Pete, I just saw this and the associated video for the first time. This is the only Garcia solo I've ever really wanted to learn, (instead of just improvising around the melody) because it's so damned beautiful and unlike anything I'm naturally prone to playing. I wanted to say thanks, and tell you how beautifully you play it! I hope the four winds blow us into the same city sometime so we can pick together. Cheers!
