                             Carry Me Over Solo - Avantasia
                              From the Album "The Scarecrow"

Tuning: Standard


This is my first tab that i figured out for myself.
The Solo uses a similar note cluster to the lead intro,
so you can have a shot at figuring out the intro from this too. 
It's fairly easy. 

Enjoy, and feel free to comment or correct anything

This riff is using the key of A# major I Think

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------3-4~--4-3-4-3h4p3p1--------------------------------------------|
G|--3----3-5----------------------3--------3/5-3-----------------------------|
D|-----3---------------------------------3-----------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This second lick uses A# Major too, but at an octave higher.
Octaves aside, its exactly the same notes as the first riff,
except for the ending, which stoops into higher notes of the A# Major scale

e|-----------------10-11~--11-10-11-10h11p10p8------------13/15--13----------|
B|--/11-----11-13-------------------------------11----11---------------------|
G|-------10------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

And the whole solo ends on this riff, still in A# Major

e|---11-10-11-10h11p10-------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------11----------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I've tried to put in as much theory as i can into the descriptions,
to give you an idea of how i figured this one out.

It's a great solo, and so easy to play, for something as epic-sounding

Thanks :)


Update: Here's a version of the tab in half-step-down tuning (Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb).
 Avantasia normally play in flatted tuning like tihs, so this may be of use to you:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------4-5~--5-4-5-4h5p4p2--------------------------------------------|
G|--4----4-6----------------------4--------4/6-4-----------------------------|
D|-----4---------------------------------4-----------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------11-12~--12-11-12-11h12p11p9------------14/16--14----------|
B|--/12-----12-14-------------------------------12----12---------------------|
G|-------11------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---12-11-12-11h12p11-------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------12----------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Hope this update's of any use :)
