How does he do that ?
Comes in @ 4:35
Great interview too.
It started on the replay at closer to 4:44 I think, but I'm not sure of the how. At first listen I thought he was plucking the strings and letting them bounce off the frets, but I don't think that's it either. At least that's not the sound I get when I do that. An interesting sound nonetheless.
I think he's tapping on the pickup - which is microphonic?

For his popping sound he mutes the string w/one finger, selects the rear p/u, and plucks string behind the muting finger.
Hmmm... I'll have to try it... Thanks !
What make is the guitar, and the amp in the background? Looks like a pinecaster.
There's that Kelly tele again!
Thanks man - the amps? Not a fender badge as far as I can see.
Well I did pay Bill to be in his workshop, so his secret is unsafe with me.
Usually he's using his thumb to mute the string.
The guy in NYC with the pine teles?
Bill is cool.
He has the front pickup high and is pushing the strings onto the pickup and they "pop" off.
He does that in "Hot Rod Lincoln" when, during his tour of the "Kings" (Freddie, BB, Albert...) he says "Billie Jean King" and plays Tennis with the Bass Player.
At 6:18, but watch the whole thing.
The "popped" string isn't necessarily the one the following note is played on. The string is just used for the pop effect. He showed me that 18 years ago and I still find it confusing as hell.
Cool... One of those workshops was on my birthday a couple of years ago, but was too broke to go. :neutral: Met him since then and even witnessed and taped him showing the Hot Rod Lincoln lick at slow speed to the young guitar player in the band he was opening for. So that's two of Bill's secret recipes under my belt... Thanks !
OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!! I think that is the most entertaining vid I've ever seen... I didn't even know Bill was the picker on Hotrod Lincoln... I'm gonna have to do some major research on him.... and anyone who says a Tele isn't versatile clearly has not seen this video... I'm absolutaly amazed... the traffic noises... car horns... the humor of the whole thing....fantastic!.... thanks so much for the post
No, it's the sound of the string being plucked while muted to a short length. Has to be the back pickup (i.e. the muting hand must be in front of the pickup being used)...
Thank you for this thread -- made my night
when i m old i want to be like that guy.
OMG!!! That guy is immensely talented. I wouldn't argue otherwise, but that 10 min. of his show would drive me NUTS!!!
Lay your thumb on a string near the bridge pup and pull up on that string with your index finger and use a little of your nail to make a pop.
