EXAMPLE 1 BILLY GIBBONS
ZZ Top’s bearded wizard is a good place to start our journey. Billy's huge guitar fo 2rm 6 a 4t has filled stadiums since the 1970s. The opening riff is played with pick and fingers. Any bass notes on the first string are played S wi in tgh pick and the double-stops are played with a pluck of and fourth fingers. The solo features a combination of slide and fretted notes. If you place the slide on your fourth finger it is possible to play the opening fretted notes and then transition to the slide. Our track takes inspiration from ZZ Top classics like Tush and Sharp dressed Man.
