    Just my opinion, but I think this is going to be harder than the 'regular' puzzles.

    I mean, in addition to the key signature discussion already, this short snippet can be at any tempo, have any number of effects applied or not, have an almost infinite variation of accompaniment...

    Those 4 notes, even in that sequence, likely occur in dozens if not thousands of songs, rock or otherwise.

    Add in Dan's favorite warning of Confirmation Bias, and I can't see how we'll ever "solve" this except by blind luck or random guessing (which is greatly frowned upon).

    I think you're right - that part of the song recorded has the bend, picking while still bent, release, then the same exact pull off into the trill. Nice work, curious how you got it. are we spoiler tagging solutions now? my bad

    Now that i've got the spoiler sorted i'll have a guess based on the magical clue thing from the newsletter.

    Spoiler:  Show
    say Dan is it Hocus Pocus by Focus
    probably not.

    Gotta go with this. It fits with the newsletter clue, and October is the perfect time for a pack of theirs. I certainly hope so!

    Hmm...I just don't hear it. In my head I'm hearing a tune very familiar to me that I just can't place. In my imaginary tune, the riff repeats a second time but resolves with a B->A. Or in other words, I hear this in my head:

    Dan's charted notes:

    E----------------------------------------------------------------
    B------------------------------------------10p7----------------
    G----9b11-- 9b11--9b11r9p7----------------7------------------------
    D-----------------------------------9---------------------------
    A----------------------------------------------------------------
    E----------------------------------------------------------------

    Second part of the riff I'm hearing in my head:

    E----------------------------------------------------------------
    B----------------------------------------------------------------
    G----9b11-- 9b11--9b11r9p7-------------7-----------------
    D-----------------------------------9----9--7------------------
    A----------------------------------------------------------------
    E----------------------------------------------------------------


    EDIT: You know, I just took a closer look at the Strutter tab you posted and I guess there's no denying that exactly fits Dan's clue. So I guess you're right. Now I want to know what is this song I have in my own head!

    I noticed that trill lurking in the back so I googled 10p7h10p7h10. Kiss was among the results and I remembered them being mentioned in the newsletter thread, so I followed that lead.
