Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Creative Rock -

Typ­i­cally, most am­pli­fiers would be set as above for a rock tone. It should be noted that some play­ers, such as Yngwie Malm­steen, slightly palm mute ev­ery­thing when they play fast arpeg­gios, be­cause it helps to pro­duce a sep­a­ra­tion be­tween the var­i­ous notes - most es­pe­cially when ap­ply­ing a barré roll move­ment. In other words, the pick­ing hand is re­spon­si­ble for the note sep­a­ra­tion rather than the fret­ting hand. In or­der to ap­ply this ap­proach on all strings, this in­volves crook­ing the fourth fin­ger of the pick­ing hand around the vol­ume con­trol ( Yngwie uses a Fen­der Stra­to­caster). Try tak­ing a look at Yngwie’s play­ing on YouTube in or­der to ob­serve the char­ac­ter­is­tic shape and pos­ture adopted by his pick­ing hand: it might feel re­stric­tive at first, but you’ll get used to it af­ter a while - and it doesn’t stop Mr Malm­steen!.
