How to play the  Man of Steel Theme | fingerstyle guitar

This song is not complicated to play, but it is involved. There are no complicated chord positions, but the relentless major-scale section of the song my prove to be difficult for some beginner guitar players.

My favorite section is the opening — its simple and beautiful.  I loved transcribing Man of Steel. The tab is available below:

    Okay, I just couldn’t watch this post going uncommented. I don’t know how much traffic it’s getting on Youtube or how many comments but I sure hope that it’s getting as much as it deserves. I really love this tab and I think I do for a reason. I find it very hard by now to say that certain blogs are some of your best because I’m losing track of all the stuff you have on here. Let’s just say it’s another outstanding tab.
    And now I’m off to bed!

      Thanks Daniel, this is BY FAR the best thing I’ve done. Honestly, I’m so locked into what I’m doing with Intellimusica that I can bang out transcriptions in minutes now. Man of Steel took me quite a few drafts to get it just right. Especially when you are working with an alternate tuning — you have to decide which parts to sacrifice so others can really shine through.

    Yeah, I’ve noticed that too on a much more unprofessional level. For example that most songs are simply built upon chords and once you figure the chord out you can just decide which note you need to or want to emphasize but that’s just the theory … and whereas it’s relatively easy to find a capo position I have no idea how to figure out if i hae to change the tuning of the guitar. Any advice on that?
    Also I’d really like to know what it is that makes certain transcriptions way better than others to you and how you would judge or evaluate the quality of a good tab. I assume that you don’t just go by the time you spent on it.

      Right. It has a certain something to it. I feel like my version — no matter how many people attempt to transcribe it — is the quintessential Man of Steel Theme for guitar.

      Not to sound like a dick, but that’s what I was going for — and I think I achieved it. I’m always trying to out do myself, but this is the tab that I am most proud of so far in 2013.

      No advice on Alternate tuning other than to say I tend to stick with tuning only the E and A strings in most of my posts. I hate rearranging the entire guitar!

    Hey Evan! Nice work! I found a great song from the movie Up… It’s called Married Life and I was wondering if you could make a tab for it… Keep up the good work!
