HANK MARVIN: ROCK AND ROLL-STYLE RIFFS
cd track 16
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.
