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.
