    Can anyone help me figure out what Lepond is playing in the following songs?

    Fallen @ 5:24
    Inferno @ 4:11
    Awakenings @ 2:45, 2:49, etc.

    I would be very grateful.

    I have a pretty good ear for bass, but these particular parts are buried deep in the mix. The guitar pretty much overwhelms everything throughout The Odyssey.

    Thanks, Luis. He plays something more than the F's and E's at that point in Fallen, though. It's easier to hear on the live version.

    I think it's close to this what I hear in Inferno:
    Code:
                                                 |--3--|  |--3--|    
         E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E     E  E  E  S S E  E  E  E  E  E    
    F||--------------------------|---------------------------------||
    C||--------------------------|---------------------------------||
    G||--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3----------1-3--4--3--1--------||
    D||--------------------------|-----1--3--4---------------4--3--||

    Some people have an ear for bass guitar.

    I'm not 100% sure of the end whether it's that triolepassage or similar sounding slide. It's very difficult to distinguish. Nevertheless, that was my best guess.

    Hearing? It's all about using right programs. :D Try one called "Transcribe!"

    Ptah, you remember when I sent you the clips of Sea Of Lies? One of them was processed with Transcribe!

    I downloaded Transcribe!, and it's really cool! I'm in the process of re-transcribing Frontiers right now. I never knew programs like this existed!

    By the way, I got this for Inferno's fill:

    But your interpretation sounds just as good.

    Transcribe! is so awesome. I just finished up Accolade II and Frontiers. Now it's on to Inferno, Wicked, and Awakenings.
