vi­brato arm (aka whammy bar)

Guitar Techniques - - Gt User Guide -

Vi­brato arm bends

The note is picked, then the whammy bar is raised and low­ered to the pitches shown in brack­ets.

Scoop & doop

Scoop - de­press the bar just be­fore strik­ing the note and re­lease. Doop - lower the bar slightly af­ter pick­ing note.

Dive bomb

Note sus­tained, then the vib is de­pressed to slack. Square bracket used if a long-held note has new ar­tic­u­la­tion ap­plied.

Gar­gle

Sound the note and ‘flick’ the tremolo bar with pick­ing hand so it ‘quiv­ers’. Re­sults in a ‘gar­gling’ sound!

Capo No­ta­tion

A capo cre­ates a new nut, so the above ex­am­ple has the gui­tar’s ‘lit­eral’ 5th fret now as the 3rd fret.
