EXAMPLE15 HANK MARVIN: CHRO­MATIC ROCK N’ ROLL LICKS

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

Chro­mati­cism is a big part of the rock and roll and rock­a­billy gui­tar style, and Hank is great at lay­ing down au­then­tic Cliff Gallup-style so­los. No­tice how the syn­co­pated chro­matic slide phrase is re­peated but on lower strings in bars 3 and 4. Like all great play­ers, Hank’s phras­ing is al­ways im­pec­ca­ble, whether solo­ing, riff­ing or play­ing melodies. At this brisk tempo it’s im­por­tant to use al­ter­nate eighth-note pick­ing to en­sure a tight, rhyth­mic de­liv­ery.
