Ex­amp le 7 Alan Mur­phy

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Strat Licks -

Whammy-bar wizard and 1980s gui­tar ses­sion mae­stro Alan Mur­phy used var­i­ous mod­i­fied Squier Stra­to­cast­ers to great ef­fect. His lock­ing vi­brato unit and stacked sin­gle- coil-sized hum­buck­ing pickup ad­di­tions were im­por­tant tweaks to the stock de­sign. This ex­am­ple uses the bar to em­bel­lish a sim­ple melody. Dial up a com­pressed, mids- ori­en­tated over­drive for this one – Alan used a Fender Su­per Champ for its own nat­u­ral over­drive.
