    Ziggy Stardust, after the 3rd verse. Solo implemented during chorus Am G F/E.
    Were messing around playing it, and I thought it would work. My brother doesn't agree, imagine that.

    Hmm, that's a tricky one. We play it and part of what I like so much about it is the simplicity of the song and how it gets everything that needs to be said in ~3 minutes. If I would put in a solo I either would A) extend the intro chord progression before coming into the final verse and solo over that OR B) if the solo has to be over the chorus chord progression, after the last chorus go back into the intro riff like twice then jump back into the chorus progression where the solo would start and when the soloing is finished sing the chorus once more.

    I have to agree with "it doesn't fit" Some songs are simplistically sublime. This is one. Brother wins

    This song was on one of the Guitar Hero games and it was redone by the GH band and included a solo before the last verse. I'm a fan of the original and I don't think every song needs a solo, but it was well done.

    If you want to solo on Ziggy material, Moonage Daydream, Width of a Circle or Cracked actor will be your playground. A solo on Ziggy just wont fit

    The best musical advice I can give is to do what you think works and don't ask the membership at large here(unless you have a legit theory question for the playing and technique subforum). If you try it and it doesn't work, you will know.

    The TGP version of Put A Bird On It is the three saddle bridge. Put it on any guitar, whether it makes sense or not, and it drives the lads crazy.
