EXAMPLE2 RIFF 2 - ExotIc tExtuRES
cd track 15
Using a phaser, this riff is also in two halves: the moody cello-style section leads to2 a looser arpeggiated chord part, both inspired by Jimmy’s playing in the mid ‘70s era (it was practically a legal requirement to use lots of phaser at the time). This isn’t too difficult technically, but hopefully gives an insight into Jimmy’s compositional, arranging and sound choice processes. Keep the gain low, or those arpeggios will be lost in the mix.
