HANK MARVIN: WHAMMY BAR PITCH BENDS

cd track 10

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

There are two ba­sic con­cepts em­ployed here: first up is the duane Eddy style bend­ing used in the open­ing bars and re­peated in bars 5 and 6. The ‘-2’ in the TAB in­di­cates a tone drop in pitch achieved by ‘dip­ping’ then re­turn­ing to pitch by us­ing con­trolled whammy bar ap­pli­ca­tion. The sec­ond is the ba­sic string bends fea­tured in all other sec­tions (note that ‘-1’ in­di­cates that the third string’s pitch should be low­ered by a semi­tone to F# us­ing the bar).
