BRUCE WELCH RHYTHM STYLE: BUDDY HOLLY IN­FLU­ENCE

cd track 3

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

This is an ex­am­ple of Bruce’s play­ing in the early days of The shadows, when those Buddy Holly in­flu­ences can be clearly heard. No­tice the use of open strings at the end of each bar, fa­cil­i­tat­ing a smooth change with­out dis­rupt­ing the groove. Much of The shadows’ ma­te­rial was based on ba­sic ma­jor and mi­nor tri­ads, the A7 is used here only to cre­ate the tem­po­rary mod­u­la­tion to D ma­jor in bar 5.
