    Hey everyone, I wanted to share some stuff I have transcribed and also wanted to know if anyone else on here has done some transcriptions of their own.

    Emil's licks are definitely not that easy to figure out, I've taken a few lessons with him and gotten a better understanding on some of his playing philosophy. I think that really assisted me when I was trying to figure some of these out. I've seen a few attempts at some of his solos on other websites that don't seem correct at all, so I stopped being lazy and gave it a shot. It's good ear training also, right? :cool:


    Anyways I wanted to share these with you. I'm working on cleaning them up to make more sense (correct positions). I was wondering what would be the perfect way to share these out to everyone? Just plain ol' Tabs or something fancy like Guitar Pro files?

    I'll upload once I clean it up, should be later in the evening. Just wanted to prime the post.

    Chimaira

    Crown of Phantoms - Full Solo
    Kings of the Shadow World - Half Solo

    Levi/Werstler

    Noxious Vermin, My Friend - Quick 16th Note Run
    Obsidian Fissure - Quick 16th Note Run (needs cleaning up)

    Daath

    Question for mods here, some of these were transcribed from JamPlay.com, they were not accurate (Emil did not tab them out) so I re-worked most of it. Is that fine?

    Wilting on The Vine - Full Solo (Live Version)
    Self-Corruption Manifesto - Full Solo
    Sightless - Full Solo
    Day of Endless Light - Full Solo (still messy)


    Currently Working On
    Daath - A Cold Devotion - Full Solo
    Chimaira - The Machine - Full Solo
    Chimaira - Kings of The Shadow World - Last-Half of Solo

    GP5 files should not be a problem, since Tuxguitar is a free program that reads them.

    On a side note, I think there should be a transcription thread. Like, where everyone can post transcriptions they have completed/are working on, can give advice, corrections, requests, etc.

    Just a suggestion - You should rewrite Day of Endless light solo in like 200bpm and write it down in eight notes / eight note triplets. Song itself goes like in 195 or so. Tab would be easier to read and count that way.

    EDIT: just checked the accents, seems like you're right on the solo though.

    Thanks man, I'll fix that up. Also got the mod approval to put up the rest of the Daath tabs so expect them tonight or tomorrow! Wilting on the Vine is :shred:

    Please transcribe the Dura Mater 'head'
    Avalanche of worms is one of my top 10 albums
    and to quote the youtube video "Emil is a ............"

    I joined jamplay only to get his lessons and its more than worth it.

    Hey Slowro, I have the transcription here, this was not done by me it was actually done by Emil himself.

    +1 on the JamPlay, his content alone was worth it!

    Levi/Werstler - Dura Mater Intro/Head

    Didn't know we couldn't change the OP, oops :(

    If you want a few specific licks that are difficult to understand I can eventually tab them.

    I remember there being a tab on their site "back in the day" and I have never been able to find it. Thanks :shred:

    Hey Redstone, if you can get that intro to "A Cold Devotion" down that would be awesome, I have bits and pieces from it and I can hear every note but the positioning is what is giving me trouble.

    Links work fine for me. They should just automatically download. Do you have GP5 or Tux Guitar?

    btw, Emil's picking hand is the stuff of gods.

    Try right-clicking the links and choosing "Save link as". That should be the manual go-around to directly installing the files on your comp.
