oh wow! Haven’t seen this one! Will now have to try the first part of that lick as well.
Another thing I have been playing around with is the pick slant. I am primarily a downward slanter. However, one thing I notice is that using DWPS it is virtually impossible to do the double take at the end of the lick (like the piano lick).
However - me clumsily trying to use up slanting and lo and behold - the lick is sloppy as heck - BUT all of a sudden the double take at the end is do-able.
Looking at what Troy does - he uses a combo 2 way slanting approach in the one lick. Starts with upward then uses downward via a roll to grab the lone note.
So the question becomes can you pull off the Gilbert lick (as PG does) without using the same mechanics i.e. partial or all upward slanting?
I would argue I have done a fairly good job using DWPS- but it’s not the same.
Another deficiency with my approach is that it is VERY hard to just launch into it if you are using DWPS. I have to really, really concentrate to execute it. PG doesn’t. He just goes BAM and is rolling off the lick with little effort at blinding speed.
Using my current approach, I would find it hard to incorporate it into a solo.
Also interestingly, in Troy’s vid on this - he says PG finds it easier to play outside than inside! I’m thinking “what the?” For me inside is WAYYY easier. Does this point to the difference in mechanics?
Anyway - me now rambling!! haha
thanks for the response!
