    Hey!

    Im turning to this forum to see if anyone can help me tab these few licks out because I suck at figuring parts out by ear. The song is Save tonight by Eagle-Eye Cherry since me and a couple of friends will perform it in a month and I want to nail these licks :D

    Here's the link:

    (It's a 4 chord song - Am F C G with the capo on the 1st fret)
    The first 2 licks I'm interested in are almost identical @ 0:33-0:35 and @ 1:21-1:24 - the lick where he changes from G to Am chord :)
    The last lick is a bit harder - it's a fast wah-ed out part of the final solo, but it's a blues-ish lick Ive heard before so I hope someone can tell me how to play it. It's @ 5:04-5:08

    I hope this request isn't too dumb and someone with more knowledge and skill in playing by ear can help me figure this out :D

    Thanks!

    Code:
    e-----4

    G-4/5-5
    D-

    E-
    #2
    Code:
    e-------------4
    B------6------4
    G------6-4-/5-5
    D-4-h6
    A-
    E-
    I can't quite make out what's going on with #3, but it's this kind of pentatonic thing:
    Code:
    e|:--------------:|-
    B|:-------9------:|-b9-(11)
    G|:-8-h10--10-8--:|
    D|:--------------:|
    A|:--------------:|
    E|:--------------:|
    Or maybe tapped like this:
    Code:
    e
    B
    G|:-8-h10--t13-p10-p8-p6-:|-b13-(15)
    D
    A
    E
    Justin Guitar has some good videos on blues licks:
