EX­AM­PLE1 RIFF 1 - EARLY RIFF STYLE

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

While much is made of the ‘heav­i­ness’ of th­ese early riffs, there is an al­most play­ful bounce to them that gives them much more univer­sal ap­peal. The bass notes are muted through­out, apart from the ac­cented hits where they are al­lowed to ring out. The ‘fizzy’ sound­ing gui­tar that joins in for the sec­ond half is a nod to Jimmy’s ‘direct do desk’ gui­tars on Black Dog and no Quar­ter. note the uni­son quar­ter tone bend at the end of bar 3. That’s a spe­cific de­tail!
