EX­AM­PLE 4 ed­die cochran

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: RHYTHM -

This ex­am­ple show­cases a sin­gle-note riff used by rock‘n’roll and surf bands alike. Sim­ply slide your fin­ger from a semi­tone be­low the tar­get note. Punk bands would go onto adopt a sim­i­lar idea for their riffs. For the open E riff in bar 24 the fret­ting hand can reach down to de­press the whammy bar as it is not re­quired to fret a note. This use of the fret­ting hand to ma­nip­u­late the bar al­lows the pick­ing hand to go about its busi­ness unhindered.
