ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Remember the "100 Riffs (A Brief History of Rock N' Roll)" video above? Redditor adrianh wrote out the guitar tablature and posted it to Soundslice! Tabs for "100 Riffs (A Brief History of Rock N' Roll)" (via Reddit)
yeah but does it also explain how to do a drop D tuning in a split second? (6.38)
That was what I found most impressive. I wonder if they’re indexed tuners.
It’s the only thing I regret about getting a Floyd Rose system.
Non-recessed Floyd with an EVH d-tuna.
Whoa, that’s a cool device. Sold!
How does it deal with the subsequent increase in tension across the remaining strings?
Incidentally, if you’ve never seen a video of Yamashita’s guitar rendition of “Pictures at an Exhibition”, you have never seen a guitar played. On-the-fly tuning, independent plucking techniques, just insane. People who’d heard a recording refused to believe it was possible.
that’s fantastic, thanks for the link.
god knows that this will soon bring out a plethora of pedants, god bless their troubled hearts..
I’m not sure I’ve ever felt this untalented and jealous in my life.
Pictures of Matchstick Men by Camper Van? . . . Status Quo
Adrian made Soundslice and Django. He’s a pretty cool guy who doesn’t afraid of anything.
The riffs started sounding unfamiliar around #65 or so.
Damn, I’m old.
And yeah, Pictures of Matchstick Men is probably older than the kids in Camper Van Beethoven.
