How does Danny do the lick at 1:46 in this video
Thanks in advance!
Can't see the clip.
Thanks for letting me know. I just fixed it.
The fact that he turns the guitar back toward the amp after winding up the tone control seems to indicate controlled feedback / bridgeplate squeal
(edit) as well as a behind-the-nut bend-up of a harmonic.
It's a bend behind the nut , plus some knob turning.
That keyboardist/saxophonist has a traveling hairdresser, for sure!!!!
As for the lick, he hit a harmonic at the 5th fret and bent it outside the nut....neat siren, eh?
notice that he jacked the volume to max during the very brief silence before he hit the harmonic....and left that volume there when he came back for the hot lead.
Man, this makes me want to paint my raw Broadcaster body gold and get it together with the vintage Bardens I have for it.
That’s one way to wash down a fretboard, eh?
And...gimme a towel to wipe it off while I play!
Stage tricks par excellence!
It's most of the rest of the lick's that I find hard to decipher!
So, the trick is easier, but the real stuff is WAAAY trickier, eh????
Actually, what Galton is doing in much of this song and especially in that little bit following 1:46 is pretty simple compared to what he does in some situations. Imho, if one wants to play like Danny Gaston, one would do well to do what he did....learn how to play like Les Paul and then——as Les Paul himself told Danny Gaston...put your own style on it.
If one REALLY wants to play like Gatton they need to spend a lifetime practicing. When they've completed that they need to spend another lifetime practicing. At that point they can assess where they are at.
Well, one might want to be born with an ear that most of us don’t have. And...Gaston sp not so much of his practice time doing what he learned from listening to, watching and talking to Les Paul that...as I noted...one might want to at least listen to a bit of Les Paul. I hear it in Gatton’s playing.
GP put a guide out....
Bill was a perfect compliment to Danny. He was one of those inventive players who could play just about any instrument he wanted to. He certainly played the pads off of that tenor sax on many of the songs from this ACL video.
If you guys want a really cool book to read, check this one out.
I may be wrong but it sounds like a harmonic that is bent upward by pushing on the string behind the nut.
As noted a while ago....
Gee thanks for telling me. Not that you deserve an answer, but I didn't read the entire thread. But I get it, you want recognition for your stellar reply. Consider it done!
