    The Rhythm and Solo sheets are separate from each other. Also, there are no lyrics in the book. Not a problem really, but sometimes its useful to look up at the words when you lose yourself in the sheet music. Just two things to be aware of. That said, the transcriptions are super clean and easy to read.

    I'm started from the beginning. Although I know some of these tracks they're some slight variation to the way I was playing

    Just got my copy of the Death guitar tablature book yesterday and I'm pleased. Huge thank you to Relapse Records, Steffen Kummerer and everyone involved in the making of this awesome book. And now, for the nitpicking. :squint: Did anyone else who has the book catch the 26th, 27th and 29th fret notes in 2 of the songs? I wasn't aware that Death used guitars that had more than 24 frets. Or did they? For those of you who haven't seen it yet. The songs/pages as follows.

    Perennial quest solo. Page 246. Tab indicates 26th fret notes being played.
    Zero tolerance solo. Page263. Tab indicates 26th, 27th and 29th fret notes being played.

    I'm gonna give the benefit of the doubt that Steffen Kummerer may have tabbed it wrong and/or Chuck Schuldiner/other guitarists may have used guitars that have 29 frets in the studio. Mistakes or not, I'm pleased with the book and can't wait to learn some stuff from it. :cool:

    Congrats for the book, lucky you for getting that book, to this side of the world the shipping is more expensive than the book itself.

    In respect to the mistakes thing... It maybe indicates an orientation to play these notes where no fingerboard frets, near or over the pickups?

    It might be. I know that particular articulation isn't new and that Chuck Schuldiner wanted to think outside the box for the music he wrote for Death and so, maybe he did use that articulation on those 2 songs. :cool:

    Hi everybody. I just got this book and was wondering a lot of the same things so I sent a message to Danny Tunker (Alkaloid, ex-Aborted), one of the co-authors of this book. He said the following about the transcriptions:


    Danny Tunker Wrote:
    'Hey man. Glad you like the book. And I'm glad it's finally out there since we finished the damn thing in 2012! Steffen transcribed the songs off the first 4 albums and I transcribed all songs from 'Individual Thought Patterns', 'Symbolic' and 'The Sound Of Perseverance'. All leads were checked by Bobby Koelble. He recorded his leads on Symbolic on a Washburn 29 fret guitar, so there will be some notes that will be hard to reach without.
    As for confusion on certain press releases only mentioning Steffen; that's a Relapse thing, but it's since been corrected and I'm still in the book, so there.'


    Kummerer didn't transcribe those songs. Danny Tunker did and Bobby Koelble (Death guitarist on Symbolic) double-checked. He recorded his leads on a 29 fret Washburn guitar.

    Awesome! Huge thanks, ArtHam, for contacting Danny. I'm gonna learn Bobby's solo in Zero tolerance in the future and it's good to know about the 29 fret guitar that he used. :cool:

    I have the Dying Fetus guitar tab and it's freaking brutal on the forearms. I was working on that one song, Atrocious by Nature more than a few times and by the time I was done, it felt more like a workout for my forearms than a guitar practice session. :flex:

    Also, you lucked out on getting the Dying fetus tab book when you did because I believe Relapse, according to their Ebay store, only have 2 copies left.

    Why this book is even out of print?
    And why I can't even buy a godd@mned pdf of it?
    Sorry.
