Deep Purple�s �Pictures Of Home"

Anybody have a transcription for Deep Purples Pictures Of Home?

 

Solo starts at 2:56. The lick Im having trouble hearing is at 3:15, is doubled on the second pass, and then transitions to the next phrase. No way Ill have this 2 handed cleanly for tomorrows gig, but I still would like to know what that lick is!

At that point in time it sure gets more than average complicated, the first run sounds like what I'd think a jazz lick (based on timing of the harmonics in the sound), the constructed slightly merry-go-round type of the rest of the solo I'm not sure I could play from a few times listening, and it sounds kind of mechanistically very accurate.

Just the first run.that will give me enough of a map to figure out the rest! Or just give me numbers based on the scale for the right hand (Ex: starting on B: 1-2-3-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-1 .) Or just record you doing a pass at it S-L-O-W-L-Y. I just need a couple good hints to put it together. Even slowing it down a whole step hasnt given me enough of a clue.

 

Why did I think I could learn an album of Jon Lord Master Class in a few days? Were performing the Machine Head album in its entirety tomorrow nite and while he never played the songs the same way a 2nd time, thats no excuse for me not learning one of the coolest licks on the album. SHAME!!!

I don't know... to me the best part of Jon's work is the amazing rhythmic playing during the song. We used to cover this song as well... The drummer loved the intro... He nailed it!
