  • Hi folks!

    Here I am with a new challenge for you, be prepared for some killer legatos and open strings technique.

    I was experimenting a fusion of country and rock´roll and I got so exciting with the results I decided to bring here to share with you all.

    What I do the most is the combination of the Major b7 pentatonic with the Mixolydian mode, for legato players that is a great opportunity to get the mathematical and melodic mind to fit those notes in the musical situation, I also combine m7 pentatonics with relative minor that gives you a big possibilities of melodic licks.

    The challenge here is in to fit in the best soft way the legatos in the song, watch your pitch while playing the chorus ( I bend many notes there) and as always, start slow and speed up when you feel comfortable.

    Now go ahead and Rock on!


    Guitar used:
    Fender USA Highway 1
    Strings: Dean Markley Blue Steel 0.10
    Effect: I used Guitar Rig 4 the chain was guitar + Focusrite 24 pro + iMac in to my Cubase 5, and to get this sound I used a combination of Gratifier on the Vintage mode + 4X12 Vintage cabinet V1 with the green distortion pedal on the top of everything called "Screamer" with the Delay from Cubase plugins called "MonoDelay" and here is what I´ve changed there to get this sound on the solo guitar: Delay/1/4, Feedback/10.5, Mix/10.0 then you are ready to go!

    I used for this tune Addictive drums.

    Tempo: 146 bpm

    Key: C

    Recording Gear:

    Cubase 5
    Guitar Rig 4
    iMac 27
