    I would literally kill for Spice Dealer and Andromeda II. *LITERALLY*
    I'm trying to figure it out but dayum.

    I'm with you there. Spice Dealer has been on repeat in my house for the better part of the week (I know, I'm late in discovering it) but I can't help the damn near bloodboiling urge to play it!

    If it is any help I have figured out the first 1min of the song probably about 90% right (I figured out a little bit more but it's no where near 100% right). If you want I can whip together a GP5/6 file but I have never made one before so it might take me a little while :yesway:

    I would definitely appreciate that! At the very least it would help me figure out what I don't have.

    I am working on it, I am just doing it in wordpad as I can't figure out the timings in guitar pro (My theory is limited). Should be done soonish, just be aware that it's not perfect as tabbing is alot harder than I thought haha (and by that I mean you will need to listen for the strumming patterns and all that) :yesway:

    EDIT: Here is the clean part... This post will be updated so I am not double posting and all that, this is just temporary.

    Title: Spice Dealer
    Artist: Keith Merrow
    Album: Retrospecial
    Author: MercyFlush (TwItCh)


    Clean Guitar (Lots of reverb maybe around 5-10 seconds with very high level + a chorus with around 30ms Pre-delay, the pre delay really opens it up)

    I just realised there is a 48hr limit on editing posts so if anyone wants up until 1min 45s tabbed just post in here and I'll write it up once I get a chance, and then It can be all put together so we have the majority of the songs rhythm tabbed out :hbang:.

    Also if someone wants to use what I tabbed in a guitar pro file GO FOR IT :shred:, I wouldn't say no to a reference in it either :agreed:

    I'm slowly figuring GPro out, so if you post it here I'll do what I can to get it in a file.

    I'm assuming you have come from Keith's facebook page :metal:

    This thread is where most of the tabbing of his songs started IIRC. I know the feeling! Same as when I came across this thread :shred:

    UPADATES!

    Thats about it for now, I can't really figure the rest out as my theory knowledge is limited, as is my skill at tabbing by ear. I hope someone can use this to figure out the rest of the song as I too really love this one in particular :)

    edit: it appears that the x's didn't work properly, pretty much it's just palmmuting on the bottom stings i.e Low B and E

    I tabbed Spice Dealer from start to the end without drum and bass track tho, and it miss the Loomis solo at the end, because it's to sketchy for me :p.

    I also put a link to another tab i made few weeks ago, of Thralldom (Demisery), it's a WIP. but i don't know if i'll have the time to finish it, it also contains only the main guitar

    Here is a filedropper link for each of them
    http://www.filedropper.com/demisery-thralldom_1
    http://www.filedropper.com/spicedealer

    You could also download it via my Google drive, I put this folder to public so you can access it and download them
    https://drive.google.com/?usp=chrome_app#folders/0B93Xr268P4-LYU9TbWFaTHZXZ00

    PS. it may be not exacly right at 100% but i did my best to figure them out with the skills i had.

    Currently thinking of doing Andromeda II and Maximilian :hbang:

    thanks for the tabs.

    Just stumbled across one of your vids from a year & 1/2 ago on youtube and thought that I'd really like to be able to practice that so I did a search here because I remember seeing your name mentioned somewhere recently. Anyway, here's that vid:



    Thanks again :)

    I love your song "pillars of creation"

    I even used the little octave chord part in one of my riffs ;)
