Hi Liam,

I am practicing your Riff Master lessons -- so far they're incredibly enjoyable!

In the Riff Master II main video ( you do a slide after the melodic section (right around the 1:01-1:02 minute mark). In the video, I see your right hand move (as if to push/pull the bridge like a tremolo bar). At first I thought you were doing a pick slide, but then after watching it over and over figured it had to do something with the bridge.
I don't see any bar attached to the guitar, but since it was slightly off camera, it spiked my curiosity more -- plus it sounds bad ass!!

The only time I've seen other guitarists use the tremolo bar (for a slide type effect instead of vibrato/tremolo) is for the dime/harmonic squeal effect --

Can you explain what you were doing and how you did it?

Many thanks for the great lessons!

hey man, thanks for king words!
well, that's nothing too complex.
you may know the floyd rose system, and then its bar. well I just don't use the bar on my FR. and its place, to make the effects of it, I use my right hand. I hold with my fingers and move the FR system as I want.
you get something similar by using the bar, but, in this way, you also find new things to try out.
it needs a bit of practice, but as I already said, it's not too complex.
