PLAY­ING TIPS

cd track 18

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY | METAL -

[Bar 84] At the end of the first verse, switch to your dis­torted sound and per­form a pick-scrape to tran­si­tion to the pre-cho­rus (bar 85); hold your pick at a right-an­gle to the strings and scrape from the bridge to­ward the neck. [Bar 85 - 101] The pre-cho­rus has a ‘pushed’ feel, which means that the chords typ­i­cally change an eighth-note be­fore the bar lines. Pushes are a favourite ploy with rock bands: Thin Lizzy be­ing a prime ex­am­ple.
