    See a song will or sometime wont rarely wont.. BE on the same scale.. So when you want ot play the solo, Its easy to play it cause most of the notes are from the same scale.. Also when you compose, you can build a song around a scale and play leads for it easily..

    Hmm.. if you start at C, you better stick to C. But then most solos in songs are not limited to one particular scale. So, although you must have knowledge of scales and take it into account while tabbing, the best and perhaps only way for you to tab accurately is by ear training. You'll have to recognize notes by their sound. If you can identify that the song is in one particular scale, its easier for you to tab as you only need to consider the variations ofnotes of that scale... For eg... if you identify the scale to be A min and not A maj, then you know there is maximum chance for C normal note to be used and not C #... This makes it easier for you. But this doesn't guarantee that the composer will not use a C #, because he can. Hence, you just have to learn to identify each note. Its difficult and requires years of training if it doesnt come naturally to you. But its worth it.

    Go with what Essi Says.. Stick to the Scale.. Unless you are as good as John Petrucci to change Scales..

    As earlier said stick to the scale you have choosen.After evrything is done,then try changing pitch and keep doing until it's perfect.I would also suggest that if you know even a little bit of piano try it on that.It will be piece of cake compared to guitar.


    Well in my case i like C , D For major And Am , f#m For minor ..
    and well tabbing of songs is done on Sa Re Ga ma pattern Which my guitar tutor tought me .. by learning Sa Re Ga Ma pattern in guitar @ Major , Minor Scale.. tabbing will be just a game of Few Seconds ..
