HANK MARVIN: MI­NOR PEN­TA­TONIC DOU­BLE-STOPS

cd track 12

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

Hank also used the more tra­di­tional rock and roll mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic dou­blestops (largely based on 4ths in the Chuck Berry man­ner). Play the dou­ble-stops with down­picks to cre­ate a driv­ing, ur­gent de­liv­ery. You will find the sin­gle note pas­sages are eas­ier to play when us­ing reg­u­lar eighth note al­ter­nate pick­ing. This ex­am­ple is typ­i­cal of Hank later in his ca­reer when he used lighter strings and was able to bend more eas­ily (as in bars 2 and 4).
