PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - Gary Moore Cold Day In Hell -

[Bars 18-25] The cho­rus ei­ther needs light ‘feather­ing’ from the pick­ing hand or back­ing off the gui­tar’s vol­ume slightly – al­most cer­tainly what Gary would’ve done – to avoid the pow­er­chord palm-mutes dom­i­nat­ing. You can open out as you ap­proach the A7 and the sub­se­quent lead turn­around idea. [Bars 23-25] If you haven’t tried turn­ing down to clean things up, then this track is a great ve­hi­cle for you to start ex­per­i­ment­ing. You can turn down to as low as 2 or 3 on the gui­tar’s pot with­out los­ing dras­tic amounts of vol­ume. Many peo­ple pre­fer the ‘not to­tally clean’ sound that this pro­duces.
