Does anyone have the ridiculous 16th note string line at the very top of Disco Inferno written out? I can transcribe it but it would save me a bit of time if I didn't need to take it down myself. Key of C (it's in B in some places).

in case you need a quick reply, with the caveat that I don't have a keyboard to hand, I think it's basically a Db9 run ending on the C.

Here's Bernmeister's from an earlier post where someone wanted it:

I happen to have the ong from one of my recent cd-correction processing results, sounding ok digitally, so I just played it back. Trying a decent acoustic piano patch along with it isn't the same as catching the lowering string melody during the phrase or catching the pure tones of the brass playing a G7sus-4, but to me it seems that by and large it's just a standard C minor scale played downwards, shouldn't be too hard.

Good idea, upvote here!

One of the great things about keeping this forum is that as long as the OPs keep the images on their servers, we can go back in the archive to the beginning and find them. However, longer term, I suspect we'll have a better option…

It is of paramount importance that the images in the Van Halen thread from Zeronyne be restored to glory.

dB, please make this a top priority! wink

FWIW, distributing transcriptions is almost certainly a copyright violation. If so, I wonder if we might NOT want to make a google-discoverable thread announcing that we have them.

Just something that occurred to me. I'm sure someone here knows the actual facts.

Isolated parts though ? Like a transcribed Jazz solo, not sure that is copyright protected. But I'm certainly no authority.

Then you should try Kapustin Etudes sometimes. He wrote those pieces for people with 15 fingers!

I believe it is. You can transcribe for you. I believe that as soon as you hand it to me, you violate the copyright. That solo is owned by the owner of the sound recording, as far as I know.

This intro transcription seems to be making the run a few times a year (pun intended!). Glad it's still helping those who need it.

As for the sticky, you guys are killing me! smile
Much too kind! But you know I'm always glad to help when I can.

Cheers!

While we're on this thread, I caught this transcription last time, and it's worked well for me, so thank you Mr Meister.

I play 4-3-1-3(over thumb)-4-3-1 etc on the way down ending on 2 on the Eb, then 1-2-3-4 up the arpeggios ending on 1-2-4 for Bb-Eb-G at the end of the run.

Cheers, Mike.

Jerry

Jerry,
What's written works. Everything is just doubled down an octave. Real strings played in octaves tend to produce an interesting sound that sometimes gives the impression that there's an octave jump here or there.

Of course it works - it's all the right notes - I was not questioning your formidable ears/skills. Never!

Just chatting a bit about the way I heard it... I knew it was a somewhat false phenomenon. It's all good!

Sorry, Jerry,

I didn't mean to come off as imposing and such. I just meant that strings tend to "fold" in and out of unison as an effect, or as a matter of playing range. We can also attribute the effect or impression of octave replacements, on a passage such as the above, to individual dynamics and fingering. These players weren't mixed like a synth, that's for sure. Gotta love real strings! smile

There's no way in which I can see a Db 9#11 in there, sorry.

The chord instruments play something in between Abm6 and Db9#11 under the string line... I haven’t played the part recently but IIRC they play (semi quavers) Eb Db Cb Ab F Eb Db C (mi7).

They play all the notes of the chord other than the root...

I'm seeing an Fm9b5 if those notes had to be summed into a chord, but the run itself as noted is just all G7 altered scale, as far as I can see.

So I think it's safe to see the opening as a run over G7 alt, which resolves to Cm, no?
