EX­AM­PLE 9 sta­tus Quo style

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: RHYTHM -

Sta­tus Quo have taken the clas­sic rock‘n’roll riff, turned up the vol­ume and the tempo - and then in­jected it with steroids! It is harder than you think to get the ‘Quo’ riff re­ally groov­ing (Rick Parfitt must have fore­arms of steel!) and again it’s all about com­bin­ing down strokes of the pick with a driv­ing time feel. The an­tic­i­pa­tions on the ‘and’ of beat four and the chro­matic runs are clas­sic Quo.
