Brilliant! Thanks so much for all your effort here. Realised I have a LOT to learn about time signatures e.t.c. Do you have any recommended resources @NReilingh for getting on top of all this stuff? Any books or websites that go from the basics to super advanced? Thanks again.

To my ear, it sounds like the rhythm guitar is playing for 6 beats. The first strum is for two beats, and then there are 4 palm-muted notes. Wouldn't this indicate 6/4 time? Am I hearing it wrong or understanding the notation incorrectly? Thanks so much for all your help @NReilingh

Wow! Thanks so much for adding all of this analysis. I have only had a quick look and realised I will need to come back and go through this slowly to let it all sink in. Will make another comment against your other answer.

Sorry - I meant 160bpm as a dotted quarter note :)

OK here are the files. Firstly a link to the Guitar Pro version - db.tt/9hne3CPS Secondly a link to a PDF version - db.tt/veM8hJG3 Would be great if someone could take a look and see if they agree, otherwise I think this may be the ticket. @Whiskas

Thanks so much for all the input guys. I think I may have cracked this nut (with your assistance). I have tabbed out the lick in Guitar Pro and it fits perfectly with the following parameters: 6/4, 160bpm where each beat is a dotted half-note, notes are triplets per quarter note (of which there are 6 in 6/4 time). Am sure there is a more academic way to express that, but hopefully it makes sense! I will post a link to the guitar pro file and a pdf of the staff/tab for the lick in a few hours so you may take a look and see if you agree. Hopefully it will help others looking for this in future.

Thanks Whiskas. I think I may have made a break through on this and wanted to check my understanding. I think that this tune may actually be in 6/4 time. The drum beat seems to conform to this measure, it fits with the bpm being played, and it also fits the notes being played per bar. That is, in the first bar of that lick he plays 18 notes. 18 notes fit perfectly as triplets in this time signature. You can play 3 notes per beat for 6 beats in the bar and everything fits throughout the entire run (and the rest of the tune too). It also seems to have a 6/4 feel (I think). What r your thoughts?

Thanks so much for the answer. I think I am still confused though. How many bars are in the ascending part of the run? I think it is 4 bars. If that is the case, then the first position of the lick takes one bar. In that bar, 18 notes are played. If this was 3/4 time that would fit perfectly, but it doesn't seem to fit. I think I am getting confused on this whole thing.
