Just looking for some opinions on the synth part of this classic. This is certainly not a polished version (ex. vocals, timing issues),but I want to get the synth part really close on the guitar. By the way, it's an Epiphone SG through a Boss DD-6 delay.

Well, if you can't make it, stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive, if you can, and meet me in a dream of this hard land.

Honestly - the synth part is by far the best part. Timing is dead-on.

Its a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself.

Thanks for checking it out. Besides the synth part, the rest was pretty much screwing around. We didn't have a vocalist there so we just had someone step up to the mic and have some fun, and the drummer didn't really know the song, but I really wanted to hear how the intro sounded recorded and get a couple opinions.

The synth part sounds amazing. I'd love if you could explain how to play it? Sounds really great.

As you said the rest was just messing around, I won't comment on it.

Thanks Taso. It's actually MUCH simpler than it sounds. Put a capo on the third fret and repeat this.

------2----2--

They are steady eighth notes. Doesn't sound right though does it? The secret is to use the delay pedal to fill in the gaps. Set it up so you are playing on the bold beats and the delay is playing the others: 1 e & a

Getting closer. Make sure you palm mute to get the stacatto snyth sound and just mess around with quick hammer-ons and pull offs on the (relative to capo) 2 and 4 frets on the G string and 2 and 3 on the B to get the little flourishes. You NEED the delay set up perfect for these fills to sound right. Once the band kicks in, just go back to the riff I typed above and stay with that. The hardest part is getting the timing of the flourishes right (I wore out my CD learning this part) but once you get the feel and sync in with the delay it's pretty easy. Good Luck and have fun.

Well, if you can't make it, stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive, if you can, and meet me in a dream of this hard land.

badlands,

thanks for explaining. It is much simpler than it sounds, but I don't have a delay pedal..Anyways, it's semi-good without the pedal...Thanks a lot.
