Is there a tab or some kind of musical sketch for the introduction to Races--that eternally ascending bit before TYMD--or the outro that plays on the final track fade?

That tab, aside from not being what RainMustFall2 was after, is absolutely shite.

If there was a .midi that has the intro on it, I could decode it from that, if anyone has one with the intro on it.

Alright! I figured it out.

I instead found a Teo Torriatte midi and decoded the end of the song. It's an interesting cycle of chords that is overlapped by the octaves so that it sounds as if it's going ever upwards when it's really just following its tail, in a sense.

Roughly, the "bursts" of chords go like this:
Dm-Em-Dm, Em-F-Em, F-G-F, G-Am-G, Am-Dm-Am, Dm6-C-Dm6, C-Dm-C, and then it repeats the cycle. Pretty clever, I'd say.

Interesting. Care to direct me to the MIDI you found?

And Brian-Harold-May: Obviously you were only trying to help.

I don't know how knowledgeable you nor RainMustFall2 are as regards tabs and transcribing guitar, so I was just pointing out that your link was not worth bothering with.

Hopefully you're not too well-versed in transcribing and you weren't to know. It was nothing against you.

You should know where to find the midi. I downloaded Teo and used Power Tab to decode it, I forget which instrument is used for the outro, it's one of the "overdriven guitars."

You download the midi to some folder. Then, go into power tab, do file->import midi...

After that, import the midi you want to decode, in this case, it will be "Teo.mid," I believe, in the folder you downloaded it to. Then, select the instruments you want to tab out (the outro should be one of the "overdriven guitars.")

Scroll to the bottom to see the tab for it. If you want PT to figure out what chord something is, click on the tab at the chord you're curious about and hit F12, and it will show you the suggestions.

I consider myself a decently knowledgable musician, but I'm not really sure by what you mean, putting "A major" on the third fret...? Shouldn't it be the fifth fret (fifth position)?

If you've been playing for a few months, most of the chords I listed should be more or less within your understanding--otherwise, please rephrase your question and I'll try to help you out in any way.

Wait, I think I understand you. You're thinking of a G major, and the tab you listed is actually a mismash of G7 and Gm7.

The G major triad is G B D - G being the root note, B being the major third (thus making it a major chord as opposed to minor or sus4, etc), and D is the fifth. If you know your chromatic scale (which you should if not by now), you can form a G major bar chord like so:

355433

Or like so:

755433 ...which is more similar to what you had proposed, and is the same thing, essentially. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

I would guess FQG was being sarcastic...

If only his chord had an Ab, rather than one of the Bs, it would be a glorious Bb13b9 chord.

Oh, and good luck playing 755433.
