I thought I'd give this 1 more try before putting it on the back burner. It gets ever closer, but my use of open strings isn't helping toward the right sound. I just cant seem to get my hand back quick enough to play closed strings from the muted parts.
Hi grip, It sounds OK to me. As for having to hit a fretted note after the damped parts, you still have to do that anyway with open strings because the first note after the damping isn't part of the verse, the part starts on an E (probably on the 2nd fret D string in your case) played on the 7th fret A string, so not as far to move your left hand to reach it in time. Regards, Charlie
Thanks for your kind comments and observations. I think its more of a head than finger problem, I can get the E OK, it is the following G to B that I seem to get a block on.
It's weird, I just can't seem to get my hand in the right position quick enough, yet this is far less complex than much of the stuff I play. It may be because I have played it this way for so many years. Maybe I'll pull it off the back burner in a few months and have another go.
Hi Grip. well its not a bad effort at all! and sound and tone are close. its strange that certain numbers give you the Screeming hab-dabs?? i have that with the gallop in apachie! yet i find this one easy to play. of course we all have our own ways and sounds. but realy it's a good effort. and well done.. lou
