Guitar Techniques - - Leslie West -

Our piece is in half time, so even though the tempo is 134bpm, the feel is more laid back than that. The solo­ing is on the late side of the beat, so make sure you don’t rush ahead. There are also some West style idio­syn­cra­sies in the parts, such as the bend on the fifth string from D to E in bars 5 and 13. The chords are at­tacked strongly, but even though they are in the open po­si­tion at times, make sure they still sound like rock power chords
