Hey everybody,

I've been busy this summer doing a lot of cool projects, and had time this week to do a little transcription of Gary Novak. I've had a few requests to check this one out, and I must say that it's pretty wild! Fasten your seatbelts...

Video is here:

Yeah!!!! Man! Terry Branam for the win!

I love this solo and was going to start transcribing it some time ago but never got around. I asked Korom to give it a go, but you have come up with the goods.

Truly appreciate it. This is a real gem.

Thanks guys, glad you like it. It was tough, but very worthwhile. There's a wealth of information in this thing for those brave enough to tame it!!

I can't follow along.

Too difficult. Can't Gary play something easier? He's one of the baddest monsters around if you ask me. Waaaay too good.

Yessss, thanks for that! I love Gary Novak!! He's just an absolute monster, I agree.

I'd love to see a transcription of this one:

I personally tried to transcribe some of his comping with Allan Holdsworth (Sixteen Man Of Tain) or Chick Corea (Time Warp), but it's just too hard to hear, one tune would take me a week or so I think... :(

I have tried to transcribe this one, but it's too difficult and too long. The main difficulty is actually not the playing, but the extremely poor camera operating. They keep on filming the wrong things.... tips of sticks that just blur, his face..... crazy fast cuts that make no sense...

It just drove me nuts, so I stopped. But I did catch some of the best licks and chops though.
