By now you’ve undoubtedly seen video of Nick Jonas’s blown guitar solo at the American Country Music Awards this past Sunday. Jonas was soloing during a performance of Kelsea Ballerini’s latest single, “Peter Pan,” when he hit the clam from hell in front of millions of viewers watching the telecast. On Tuesday, he blamed the moment on “a huge brain fart.”
While many guitarists have taken to YouTube to offer their own versions of the solo, Santa Monica-based guitarist John Huldt went one step further and actually made a transcription of it.
Incidentally, Jonas saw Huldt’s transcription and tweeted it to his Twitter followers.
You can watch Huldt perform the solo in his video, shown below. When you’re done, you can grab the transcription on Dropbox and try mastering it yourself.
