Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

The open­ing ideas com­bine palm mut­ing power chord fin­ger­ings. Use down pick­ing ex­clu­sively here as it pro­vides a fat tone and con­sis­tent at­tack. The ac­cents are played by lift­ing the palm mute off the strings. The gui­tar solo is sim­ple to play, but the key to bring­ing it to life is the ar­tic­u­la­tion. Check out how each note is played: tech­niques like fin­ger slides, vi­brato, string bends and ham­mer-ons all help to bring the melody to life – and lis­ten to Dann Huff’s per­fect solo in the sin­gle ver­sion of Whites­nake’s Here I Go Again for fur­ther in­spi­ra­tion.
