Here’s my take on Pete Blakk’s classic solo from “Welcome Home” by King Diamond. This has always been one of my all-time favorites from King’s catalog. I took some liberties with that last lick, but it sounds close enough. Nothing too fancy with the right hand, but I’m applying a lot of USX for the arpeggios and the fast pentatonic lick at the end.
Great playing man
Gotta be KD. They were so incredible on this last round of show and I suspect that Andy LaRocque could make for a very interesting CTC interview!
Wait til’ you see your room, up in the attic!
Awesome playing. Them is my favorite KD release and I always felt that Pete and Andy were one of the all time great guitar duos. It’s too bad that Pete didn’t stay with the band, he was so good.
Thanks guys! @shredhead7 Yeah I agree, the Blakk/Larocque duo was the best IMO, but Andy’s always been paired with a great player. Mike Wead rips, too.
