This may seem a weird thing to ask, but does anyone know of anywhere one can find sheet music for the folk, etc parts of metal songs? Like the woodwind instruments in a Folk Metal track. While I more or less don't know the first thing about playing a guitar, I know that there are plenty of sources for guitar tabs out there, but I was wondering if anywhere the same sort of thing was available for other instruments in metal songs? I figured this was probably the best place to ask, so can anyone help me?

Do you mean guitar tabs on the folk instruments, our tabs specific for the instrument being used? Or both?

Many Guitar Pro tabs contain notes/tablatures for all instruments used in the given song, including the folk ones.

I don't always like playing distortion guitar in harmony with flute or any folk instruments. playing a folk sheet music on guitar does not make sense! you can download a lot of folk metal GP tabs.

No no, I'm not talking about guitars at all. I just used that as an example of an instrument that has readily available written music. I'm talking about sheet music for the woodwind instruments in Folk Metal.

I dont know, I never needed tabs for Folk bands like Cruachan or Ensiferum, since most of their songs are terribly easy to learn by ear, yet so kick ass to play... You may want to try them out.... They're mostly in standard E tunning btw...

Yup, i know what you mean!
Like, tabs for the part played on the bag-pipes on Kamelot's "Moonlight", right? Yeah, don't know where you can get stuff like that from...
Your best bet would be to tab them out yourself.

Yes, I mean the Folk parts in Folk Metal music, but you keep talking about guitar tabs (what are guitar pro tabs anyway?). I was reasonably good at the wood recorder back in the day, so that's what I'm talking about. Sheet music for any woodwind instruments in Folk Metal music.

no u can do pretty much any instrument - u can either tab it in OR you can also use normal music staves and stuff

but it is based heavily around the guitar therefore most of the effects are for guitars...

How did I miss this post? Anyhow, that looks pretty cool. On that screenshot, is that just the flute section because you've clicked on "flute" down the bottom?

If you want there are some Moonsorrow and other folk metal band's guitar pro tabs in Doomish.com and you can see the folk parts there to get a clear understanding on how they use it ( even though you probobly don't need it...)

Ahh thank you very much. I'll test out the trail version of it first and have a look.

Guitar Pro FTW. It has tabs for symphonic effects too. Every instrument in a song is tabbed.

I get what they are trying to say, Guitar Pro is a program that plays back tabs/sheet music as midi files. When you download these tabs sometimes people include the orchestral/folk band parts along with the guitar parts. However, I would say from the prospective from somebody who was raised around sheet music that you should learn to play it by ear, when it comes to folk instrument players there is usually not sheet music involved and transcribing it isn't always easy or correct.

Hi there,

Well There is a huge demand for public domain sheet music for a variety of purposes. Some folks use this music to create public performances - and with public domain materials, there are no royalty or performance fees to worry about. Others want to build collections of royalty free music to sell to product developers. Still others build themed collections and sell it as books or CDs. However if you are looking for metal sheet music you can click here . I hope you can find something very useful.
