16 Nov Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird” Solo Tutorial, Part Two

Here we are for the second appointment with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Free Bird Solo.

fb2-720 from SoloDallas on Vimeo.

The guitar featured in this tutorial is a 2010 Gibson R8 Les Paul Standard

played on a 1977 Marshall JMP 2204 attenuated with an Aracom PRX150 DAG

Just a couple of things to note, around 8 mins re: the lick at the twelfth fret G string. The ‘big’ bend is called a minor third bend. If you consider the G minor scale being G, A, Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G then bending the G at the twelfth to the A#(Bb) at the 15th is from the 1st note G to the (flat or minor) 3rd Bb.

At 20 mins or so, playing the 1st string G at the 15th and also the 2nd string 18th bent to G is called a ‘Unison bend’. It gives great emphasis to the note with the lighter string constant and the bent string oscillating around the note.

If you need to go to part one, you’ll find it here for convencience

14 Nov AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell” New Series

Heh. I think I am getting closer.

Highway To Hell seems “easier” to get to in terms of tone replication. I am convinced strongly, more and more, that Angus recorded many parts with a Marshall 2203 or 2204.

14 Nov Meet “The Knack”

Well, “The Knack” are another one of my favorite bands. Weird, no? (no). They lived shortly in the sense that, only one record is really worth listening. But THAT record is amazing.

I know, I sound exaggerated. I apologize.

The thing is, that on that FIRST record (“The Knack”) they were brilliant. They were fresh, happy. Truly happy. They were an US band formed in LA (see here for more info).

Original drummer and original singer are both dead, singer having died last year on a motorbike accident (Rest In Peace, Doug).

What I’ll be featuring here is exclusively first album videos. Notice the energy, TIMING and band feel. All those components were soon to be lost in just a matter of one or two years. Talk about a badly managed band. I remember when in 1979 – I was already in love with AC/DC – the hit single “My Sharona” came out. I remember that summer clearly. As soon as I heard the song, I asked my mom (I was 9 years old) to buy me the tape. I put that tape on everyday all day for the whole summer. The summer of ’79. I was dancing to it like a crazy (that I still am). I also recall clearly that we went to Sardinia that year (known Italian big and gorgeous island) and it was my first chance to go to the disco. No one was dancing to that song, so I jumped on the disco stage and danced the whole song by myself. I was literally jumping. Must have been the best “9 years old nerd” show ever seen.

Get some. Meet “The Knack”.

11 Nov THE FIVE FACTORS WHICH CREATE THE ‘1959 BURST’ SOUND

THE FIVE FACTORS WHICH CREATE THE ‘1959 BURST’ SOUND

“Various factors all came together in 1959 to produce what I, and many others, consider to be the ultimate electric guitar, the 1959 Burst. I have spent 38 years studying genuine 1950’s Bursts and reproducing their sound. I have found that there are five main factors responsible for creating the 1959 Burst sound”

10 Nov AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” New Series

Well, with the arrival of the Aracom PRX150 DAG (Power Attenuator) I can finally reach new heights. Why? Because this is a REAL attenuator, like I’ve never owned before (review coming soon). This attenuator – a passive one – lets me crank properly any amplifier power section – included the ones of MVs amps, such a 2203 or a 2204, as in the case with this video – and obtain finally proper sound. I know, I seem a bit too revolutionary, but please listen for yourself.
