Hey all! This is a follow up to my previous video on How To Learn Songs by ear which seemed to resonate with a lot of you. In this video I’ll be discussing how I learn guitar solos or lead guitar parts by ear using a real world example and how I go about transcribing it. I’ll be using Greta Van Fleet’s The Weight Of Dreams to demonstrate. This song has an epic 3 minute guitar solo, and although I don’t transcribe the whole thing, I show you my process in real time.
