SoloLa! is an automatic system for transforming lead guitar audio signal in music recording into sheet music, which features automatic guitar expression style recognition.

The system comprises of the following processing bloakcs:
  1. Source Separation - isolate the audio signal of guitar solo from mixture
  2. Melody Extraction - estimate the fundamental frequency corresponding to the pitch of the lead guitar to generate a series of consecutive pitch values which are continuous in both time and frequency, a.k.a. melody contour
  3. Note Tracking - track the estimated melody contour to recognize discrete musical note events
  4. Expression Style Recognition - the detection of applied lead guitar playing techniques such as string bend, slide and vibrato
  5. Fingering Arrangement - maps the sequence of notes to a set of guitar fretboard positions
