    It's gonna be tuff to find a lot of songs from the Silver Rain album. It's probably almost better to learn it by ear. I was looking for "La Villette" and that one is hard to come by too. You might as well get a glass of wine and some candels on a friday night and just practice it all night. Good Luck!

    I was obsessed with this song when it came out a while back and figured out the whole thing, minus a few parts (Mainly at 0:15, and I got lazy after the solo.. haha). I suggest you try and do the same. It's really not that complicated, and if all else fails, play it through a program that will let you slow down the song and have at it.
     
  5. Good ole pentatonics
     


  6. just goes to show, when used the right way they sure can get the job done without sounding like basic penatonic noodling:bassist:
