Allan Holdsworth – Devil Take the Hindmost transcription

Posted in Guitar Playing with tags on February 29, 2008 by Staff Writer

I started transcribing the solo from this tune once but gave up mainly due to lack of time. While surfing at TGP today, I saw that somebody had posted some slowed-down sections of the solo for people to listen to and try to work out. In that thread somebody also mentioned that Steve Vai had once transcribed this and that it had been posted in Guitar Player Magazine many years earlier. A quick search on the web revealed it as the first hit, reproduced here (and probably upsetting somebody as a result) for your convenience.

Steve – if you’re reading, can you play it? 🙂 I can’t…
