Default Need help from T-Rex fans

Hi there. New member, here.

I've been trying to figure out T-Rex's Monolith for months now. I don't hear very well even using Capo (a slow downer type thing) but I have managed to get the Verse/Chorus and the opening lead work.

I can't figure out any of the leads/solos beyond that. I'm simply not "hearing" it with all the wah.

Anybody out there know this song or how to play it that would be willing to help me out? Would love to play it with my quarterly "garage jam" with other geezers.

Thanks for any help or directions.

Somebody has a "how to" video for that song:

Sounds nice, I might learn it myself. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Appreciate the reply but that's just the verse, chorus and intro. I'm looking for the lead work and solos throughout the song.

It really is a great song. Cheers!

Hate to say it, because I'm a big T.Rex fan, but Marc wasn't the most technically gifted guitarist out there. Most of his stuff sticks to basic rock'n'roll box patterns. I don't hear anything on this particular song that strays from that - figuring out the wah timing might be harder than figuring out the notes.

You should watch Hi Hat's video again, it does cover the solos.

Welcome to the forum & good luck with it!
