Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

New York rock guitarist, singer, song­writer and pro­ducer Ron Thal (Bum­ble­foot) is a daz­zling tech­ni­cian who flirts with the avant garde due to his propen­sity for fret­less gui­tars and a thim­ble that he uses on the fourth fin­ger of his pick­ing hand to ex­tend his range and cre­ate ear-catch­ing, high-pitched ef­fects. I was lucky enough to share a stage with Ron a year or so ago, in Glas­gow, so I know from first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence that he is not averse to us­ing the oc­ca­sional sus4 arpeg­gio, along the same lines as the ex­am­ples de­scribed in this les­son. Check out Ron’s solo al­bums, such as The Ad­ven­tures of Bum­ble­foot (1995) and Her­mit (1997).
