This was an intercontinental project. Andreas Lemke in Germany did the
first part (on acoustic guitar) and Bill Thomas did the electric solo at
the end here in Pittsburgh. Love that internet. Frankly, I think Andreas
did the hard part, and his is certainly better developed, with timing
and everything!

We hope this will shake loose some more Steve Hackett fans.


After The Ordeal by Genesis - Selling England By The Pound (1973)

This is my personal interpretation of the non-drum part of the song.
It is not intended to be an exact transcription of the original
guitar part only. The weakest part of this interpretation is the
beginning of Part C (sorry).

(From Bill Thomas:)

ELECTRIC GUITAR SOLO

Note that the main part repeats. Also, the notes in the parentheses are
only played the second time through.

Play LEGATO, as in, very smoothly and with no discernible connection
between notes -- a hallmark of the Steve Hackett guitar style.

Then there's the ending, when Gabriel plays flute, and the guitar part
becomes very minor.
