Many thanks for your fantastic feature on one of my favourite and still greatly missed guitarists, Gary Moore. I was fortunate enough to see Gary play a number of times and I remember how certain sections of the audience would time the sustained note in Parisienne Walkways. I was never sure if Gary was playing along, or if he thought it was all a bit daft. Richard Barrett’s six solos really got to the heart of Gary’s style. I was hoping they would be actual Gary solos but in fact the way GT did it was far more educational in the long run – and is bound to assist me and others in cracking those tracks that still evade these fretting fingers. In the absence of ‘actual’ transcriptions this kind of idea goes a long way towards satiating my soloing needs, so I’m wondering if you have any others in the pipeline? Marcus Davey Thanks, Marcus. We thought Richard did a fabulous job, too. And yes, we also feel that in certain respects an in-depth style study is as good or better than merely tabbing out a song or solo. What we like to do at GT is give you the tools for the job, rather than do the job for you – hence all the great features we run month after month, including this one. You are so right that learning someone’s approach can help you to unlock their style and break it down yourself, and that such an approach will be more rewarding and musically beneficial to your playing in the long term.
