FULL SOLO PIECE

cd track 12

Guitar Techniques - - TECHNIQUES | WHAMMY BAR -

Putting a few of the ex­am­ples into a more com­plete solo con­text, in or­der to main­tain stylis­tic co­he­sion (Marvin to Set­zer to Vai might have sounded some­what odd) I’ve con­cen­trated more on the Van Halen school of thought, though some of the phras­ing takes in later Via and Sa­tri­ani in­flu­ences, too. Some of the more melodic sec­tions (check bars 9-15) use the bar to stylise a rel­a­tively sim­ple line, though ex­pect to spend some time on this be­fore re­ally feel­ing fully in con­trol. A sus­tain­ing, dis­torted tone makes mat­ters a lot eas­ier, but many of these tech­niques sound great on a clean tone too.
