Please visit Justin Sandercoe’s Tutorial for the full lesson, tab, original audio and complete breakdown of this arrangement.

The Tab file here is my own work and represents my interpretation of the song. Tab files with reference to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material. All rights belong to the copyright holders.

Note: I have learned many songs that I do not think I could have learned without the help of Tab. It seems that breaking the songs down into their various parts (intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.) and writing the tab is part of my process of learning the songs and helps me remember them better.

Don't Fear the Reaper Lick

I love this tune... easy to play, sounds great... there is a lot more to this tune if you want to get into doing some transcribing on your own too - great solos and stuff. Google More Cowbell if you have not seen the skit, it's very funny. Old, but very clever..

I didn't spend lots of time getting the same tone as the tune, but think I got it ok. It's almost certainly a Gibson and there are some live vids of him playing an SG and sme with a Les Paul. For this vid I used a Gibson SG into an old Fender Super Champ (the all valve point to pint wired 80's model designed by Paul Rivera). Used the clean channel driven a bit (volume on 8, master on 3) bass on 10, treble on 6 and reverb on about 3.
