This is great service for extracting audio from YouTube videos and can be use for transcribing tunes/performances you like on YouTube. You just cut and paste the URL of the YouTube video into a text field and press Go and you get a download link to the file after it’s processed.
Transcribing is a great way to find melodic ideas for you to use in your solos – it allows you to speak the language better than knowing scales and modes alone. After transcribing you need to understand why the notes work and how to use and tweak them for your own sound. Along with transcribing I teach the CAGED system and using chord tones as a basis for mastering the fretboard and creating melodic solos.
