EX­AM­PLE THE BLUES RAKE

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

This lick uses the ever-ef­fec­tive ‘rake’ tech­nique. This idea is the same as sweep pick­ing (play­ing notes on ad­ja­cent strings with a sin­gle stroke) only more per­cus­sive The notes in the rake don’t nec­es­sar­ily need to be fret­ted cleanly to get the de­sired ef­fect. Gui­tarist like Ste­vie Ray Vaughan, Mark Knopfler and al­bert Collins are all fond of the rake sound and, if used ju­di­ciously, adds en­ergy to the last note of the rake.
