Hey thanks for pickin up on that guys , i appreciate it !! should be a c# in there
it was late when I was messing with that post ... Grate dad I think ur right ,
and the riff is based off the open E hammer pull off g and then the c#-b-a walkdown in which you could also through that E in there after the A which I might start doing now .. Now u can use partial chords, thirds and fifths, scale tones, harmonic notes, whatever, anyway you want . I'm a firm believer there is not a "right way to play something" to an extent .. There are always many options to being creative
I ve played it against a few recordings and it sounds pretty spot on ,and my band rocks that ending pretty good like that. I'll change the video and repost later when I get out of work. the last thing we need is more crap video out there
Oh yeah Man, please re-post your vid. We're all just takin' shots at it and learning from each others takes on things.
My general intent with those vids was to help folks get from "can't play it" to "can play it". If your goal is to play it exactly like Jerry and/or the GD, that's another level, and may take more than one guy.
I thought I was going to learn how to play that part when I saw the BK3 play it, but Scott M. ended it with the same exact fingering I use in that vid. I got to shake hands with Billy K. that night, but didn't get to ask Scott where he got that ending from.
Not surprising we play it the same I guess, as we both play it with a Trio.
This leans more towards a G root with a partial D, the surronding open notes lend some dissonance:
