Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: British R&b -

Although the tempo changes are quite dra­matic, each sec­tion is pre­ceded by a count or fill to make the tran­si­tion eas­ier. When play­ing the ‘chips’ in the first sec­tion, aim your pick onto the first and sec­ond strings only. This pro­duces a tighter sound and also avoids hit­ting un­wanted open strings. In the sec­ond sec­tion (bar 9 on­wards), play the dou­ble-stop licks by bar­ring the strings with one fin­ger. Vi­brato has only been fea­tured in bars 31 and 42; how­ever, as this has never been a big fea­ture of Keith’s play­ing st yle, use it spar­ingly. To achieve an au­then­tic sound in the fi­nal riff, you’ll find a ded­i­cated fuz z pedal achieves the best re­sults (we used Dun­lop’s ex­cel­lent Blue Mini Fuzz Face).
