THE­ORY IN AC­TION

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Rockschool -

Nuno Bet­ten­court makes great use of the per­cus­sive muted sound in his play­ing, most no­tably on the Ex­treme track Hip To­day. Whether we call it Yo, Egyp­tian or Sus­pended pen­ta­tonic, lis­ten to Scott Hen­der­son for a mas­ter­class in ex­otic pen­ta­ton­ics, no­tably the Tribal Tech track Jakarta. Gui­tar in­no­va­tor Mat­tias IA Ek­lundh cre­ates a sim­i­lar ‘buzz roll’ type of ef­fect on the track Musth, but uses a dif­fer­ent tech­nique; drag­ging a hair comb across the strings! If you don’t know who Zil­toid is, check out Devin Towsend’s bril­liant ‘metal mu­si­cal’ al­bum to hear the great­est gui­tar play­ing in the Om­ni­verse. T o hear the Zortz­ico 5/8 rhythm, look no fur­ther than Zortz­ico in E mi­nor by the Span­ish pi­anist and com­poser Isaac Al­b­eniz.
