The "70's Phaser Country" lesson is inspired by the vintage sounds of Waylon Jennings. The phaser wasn't just a staple sound of Rock but also has a place in country music history. It was prevalent in the Waylon Jennings recordings of the 1970's. The phaser sound of the time would have been a four-stage phaser. Perhaps an Elecro-Harmonix Small Stone or an MXR Phase 90. The speed was often slow. I have set my phaser to ascend one bar and then descend the next. If you have the ability set the bpm to 26.25. If you have a tap tempo tap only on the downbeat of each measure. The picking technique I'm using is a hybrid style utilizing a pick between my thumb and first finger with the other fingers open for grabbing double and triple stops. The tone is a lightly driven telecaster in the bridge position.
