Track record

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Rockschool -

Steve Vai’s use of the wah pedal in Bad Hor­sie en­hances the melodies and riffs and brings the gui­tar to life. Martin Tay­lor is a mas­ter of fin­ger­style jazz, and his walk­ing bass tech­nique on I Got Rhythm is noth­ing short of amaz­ing. You don’t have to go all the way back to the 16th century to hear a waltz: in 1967 The Bea­tles wrote a lovely 3/4 song called She’s Leav­ing Home. Jeff Beck’s track Where Were You from the Gui­tar Shop al­bum is a sig­na­ture track of Mr Beck’s, and one of the great­est whammy bar songs put on record. The whole tone scale sounds jagged and strange, qual­i­ties that King Crim­son em­ploy on the track Frac­ture.
