HANK MARVIN: ROCK AND ROLL-STYLE RIFFS

cd track 16

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

Hank was no slouch in the rock and roll de­part­ment as you will by now be fully aware. This ex­am­ple il­lus­trates his of­ten over­looked but nonethe­less pow­er­ful riff­ing skills over an eight-bar blues pro­gres­sion. No­tice the trade­mark

ap­pli­ca­tion of palm mut­ing in bar 7 and the in­clu­sion of the whammy bar pitch ‘dip’ in the fi­nal bar. It’s th­ese lit­tle touches that, as we’ve al­ready seen, firmly sign off the work as Hank’s.
