Riders on the Storm Solo Transcribed!
« on: March 04, 2009, 02:27:38 PM »
Hello!

Not sure if this is the right place to post, but I thought I would share this with you, if interested!  Basically, I always loved the tone and solo of keyboard solo off Riders on the Storm by the Doors.  For some reason I couldn't find the solo anywhere so I decided to sit down (on the computer) and transcribe it!  I've never done anything of the sort before, but I think its quite a good result... If anyone is interested, I would be more than happy to post it for you to learn!

Alright, here they are... I'm open to all remarks!  The Keyboard Solo is my first ever transcription... took me a 2 days I believe, but two days well spent!  I also include the guitar solo, also transcribed, but that only took like less than an hour because it's pretty short and not too complex!  I mainly wanted to hear and write out the chords of the keys since Manzarek plays something different during the guitar solo.

I'll certainly give this ago at some point.

Right now I'm all bent on Long Tall Sally and I generally obsess over only one song at a time.

haha, I am pretty much the same... I like to learn one song, but very good and "feel" it.  I always find its somewhat easy to learn something, but theres a small lapse between playing notes and playing the song.  For this solo, I am almost dead on and its been a couple of months already

I tried out your keyboard transcription last night and found it excellent!  Thanks very much for posting it.
