Hi Stumblin',
If you tune to the recording, your frets can still be used as visual references and you won't have to play in between the frets to be in tune.  Tuning to the recording is always a good idea when transcribing.
All best,

Yeah, I knew that really, was just being a bit lazy. I'll try it, thanks.

Can anyone here offer any advice

Get a copy of Transcribe! or some other transcription software.  Why?

1:  You can pitch the recording up or down without changing its speed, as you had to in the old days with tape or records.  So you can play along with Patton in Spanish at G, hopefully making the intonation better high up the fretboard.

2:  You can mark a part you can't hear clearly and loop on just a few notes, at various speeds, and filtering out various frequencies.

You still have days of frustrating and arduous practice, but hopefully it'll be a bit easier.
Thanks, I'll look for that software now.

Now that I?ve finally registered, I just want to thank uncle bud for posting these; this thread got me through a particularly rough patch a few years back.

Being able to sit and play along with Charley really helped me through, so cheers :)
Alex
