Queen is probably the reason I have started playing the guitar. I have been listening to Queen since 1996 and a really big fan 🙂 Here’s the guitar solo transcription of a great song called “You Don’t Fool Me” by Queen. I tried to play with the frequencies of the original track to lower Brian May‘s parts so I opened up some space for my guitar track. …

Fanfare Ciocarlia Que Dolor Trumpet Solo Guitar Cover

I always like to transcribe musical lines that are produced by other instruments rather than the guitar. All kinds of fretted (and sometimes fretless instruments as well) instruments have a similar approach and we sometimes get lost in its graphically easy-to-play attribute and try to play physical things rather than the music itself. Think about a trumpet player, they have to take a breath and play wisely …

Yavuz Çetin Fanki Tonki Zonki Guitar Cover

Here’s another transcription of one of the best Turkish guitar players, Yavuz Çetin‘s “Fanki Tonki Zonki” from his debut album, “İlk“. This song features his melodic blues phrasings, a lot of modulation and backing vocals by another legend, Özkan Uğur from MFÖ. I was quite glad about the accuracy of my transcription. It feels like it’s almost 100% accurate. When I listen to it these days, I …

Secret Garden The Reel Guitar Cover

Secret Garden has been always one of my favourite bands even though it’s not guitar-related music. Their song called “The Reel” from their Earthsongs (2005) album just sounds like a shred guitar track 🙂 So I gave it a try. It’s one of the most physically demanding songs since you have a few patterns going on but for a long time to repeat on the guitar without …

Mavi Sakal‘s “Gönlümde” played with my new setup, using Amplitube 4 Slash’s AFD100 amp.

Mazhar Alanson Benim Hala Umudum Var Guitar Solo Cover

Mazhar Alanson‘s “Benim Hala Umudum Var” has a tasty great solo written and played by Rob Ten Bokum. Here’s my rendition of it.

Aziza Mustafa Zadeh Butterflies Guitar Cover

Aziza Mustafa Zadeh (a.k.a. The Queen of Jazz!) has been always a great inspiration for me personally. Even though I’m a guitar player, I was spending much more time listening to her rather than listening to guitar players 🙂 Obviously, it doesn’t make sense for many to transcribe her music on electric guitar, but her song “Butterflies” has a really good theme and I always wanted to …

Deep Purple Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming Guitar Cover

Around 2008, I was so into this song and spent lots of time transcribing it by ear. There were not many video resources back then. I think I had just made it harder to play with my tapping harmonics rather than gently touching and picking 🙂 I used my trusty Erkan Sızarlar custom-made electric guitar with Vox Tonelab LE directly going into my M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 PCI …

Any Shawn Lane fans? Wasn’t he a genius? I think he was. When I think about his music, talent and capabilities I’m just lost for words.
