Ex­am­ple BROAD­WAY BLUES

Guitar Techniques - - VIDEO MASTERCLASS | ALLEN HINDS PT1 -

Cho­rus 1 [Bars 1-26]

The back­ing track opens with a lovely drum fill and Allen uses some muted Ste­vie Ray Vaughan style de­scend­ing slides to en­ter. The open­ing chords are played with the fin­gers and Allen adds sim­ple yet ef­fec­tive blues flavoured licks in an ap­pro­pri­ate ques­tion and an­swer fash­ion.

[Bars 12-14]

To pro­vide a Jeff Beck style qual­ity the whammy bar is em­ployed in th­ese bars. To ar­tic­u­late the scoop sound sim­ply de­press the bar slightly be­fore pick­ing, and then re­lease it just af­ter pick­ing to pro­vide an up­ward glis­sando sound sim­i­lar to that of a sax­o­phone or synth (Jan Ham­mer).
