Cool, I’d say with a closely related question it’s fine to keep it all in one topic and have it in whatever category seems the best match. In that case you could edit the topic title to something like “Scorpions lead playing - technique and musical approach” or whatever best describes it, with further detail in the post on whatever things you’re particularly curious about.
If the technique question seems distinct enough, fine to have as a separate topic too. But for something like this where there’s probably a close relation e.g. between musical and technical choices, probably makes sense to have it together.
That’s cool! I think you are right, it sounds to me like hammer-ons and pull-offs with the sliding harmonic trick. I might be wrong, but I think he shifts the fretting hand position a couple of times yet the continuous change in harmonics makes it sound like a lot more is going on.
Well I watched a bunch of live stuff and it is the pull off trick.
The studio version sounds great. Live its kind of all over the place.
I think he might simply do a string change because I watched a youtuber attempt it and It did change things fairly noticeably.
Anyway Ill have to play with it when I get the amp n peddles all situated.
I noticed in my search for clear footage of live performances without fail, he starts the solo and boom
Camera guy decides we should hear him and see the bass player or watch klause play with the mic stand.
Ultimately i fear this is a studio job and you may never be happy with how it sounds live.
